We stayed in the Nam Ngu, for the second time, over New Years in an executive double room on the tenth floor. The hotel is about 45 minutes from the airport and located down a charming side street - full of local sights and sounds. The Lake and most of the main tourist hot spots are a comfortable 25 minute... More

This Hotel experience was one to cherish. When you expect nothing much and then being surprised in more ways then one. We got to the the Hotel a few days early and the staff offered us to keep the big bags in storage awaiting us to come back from Sapa. We ended the Sapa trip premature and contacted them for... More

Been here for business purpose. Location is quiet small street, near the train station and some small supermarket, local restaurant, take 10 minutes walking to tourist attractions. Room is cozy, have a desk to put my laptop on. Clean environment, the restaurant can be a bit crowed. Price is affordable and value for money

Overall we found our stay at this hotel to be very pleasant. Quite basic but the room got a cozy bed and i'm quite surprised about how good it actually was. From the outside look like they only had balcony on 9th or 10th floor. The breakfast look ok, not many choice but give you enough energy for a morning.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Good price and convenient location. Within walking distance of most main attractions and a cheap taxi ride if it's too hot to walk. Room was comfy with cozy bed. Curtains and balcony door shut out all the heat from outside and air con kept the room cool. Will definitely be returning.

I didn't know what to expect from this hotel when my friend booked it, after looking at the reviews. I'm glad to say I was pleasantly surprised. The closest attraction is Temple of Literature and the hotel is just a few blocks away. The beds were very cozy,soft and I like them that way. I had a street-facing room on... More
