“Friendly, accomodating staff & spacious rooms”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I stayed at the Time Hotel in July 2012 and as the starting point for my visit in Vietnam, I was pleasantly surprised with how genuinely friendly & attentive the staff were. They allowed us an early check in, stored our belongings during our trip to Sapa & helped us with every little thing from locating the nearest bank, places to eat, internet, printing etc
The rooms were big, clean, and very comfortable but the breakfast was average. Despite this, the price we paid was absolutely worth every cent!

Room Tip: We had three of us and had the biggest room - worth the extra spend which isn't much anyway

I was travelled from the South of Vietnam to the North. On my first day at Hanoi I stayed at another hotel then I found that the location of this hotel is great, right in the centre of Hanoi Old City and offer with affordable budget. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby and also close to the Hoan Kiem lake. It is an established hotel with very clean rooms, nice decoration, free wifi , excellent service and friendly staff. They arranged an excellent car to the airport for us at a reasonable cost. I would definitely recommend this hotel for my friend and I will stay here again for
my next trip to Hanoi .

It is my second trip to Vietnam, but this time is a company business trip. With company arrangement I stayed here and feel I could have asked more of my stay.

I was at first shown to the room which opens out directly on to the local typical houses and guess this would be a noisy location and not afford the privacy I wanted. When I explained this and asked for another room, there was no fuss made and after a few minutes I was shown to a gem of a room at the corner and facing city view .It was much bigger, had doors that opened out on to a balcony and a sizeable bathroom.

In a very luxurious amenities box in lacquer ware in the bathroom you will find that EVERYTHING is provided: soap, combs, cotton buds and sanitary in the luxurious and standard – especially, the shampoo & body location in the lacquer box, that looks awesome and high class and these are topped up every day.

Moreover, Miss Jenifer from the sale department is very helpful; she managed to help me book a tour to Halong Bay with the best offer so I can relax during the weekend after some long conference and meeting. I am really enjoy my time at this hotel.

We’d been to Hanoi before and had stayed in a whole other area the first time. We really liked the location of our first hotel, but we booked this hotel because of a great offer on booking.com (12 euro per night). Because it was so cheap, we expected the hotel to be disappointing. But the hotel was amazing! The rooms were spacious, clean, and modern. There even was a computer with free internet in the room. There was free shampoo and soap, and an actual shower cabin (which wasn’t the case in most hotels we stayed at in Vietnam).

The staff was very friendly, location was good, as was breakfast – they had a buffet, whereas most of the hotels we stayed at only offered an omelette and a baguette.

I still can’t believe the value for money we got at this hotel. It simply cannot be beaten.

We stayed here in October after purchasing a discount coupon through Groupon. The room we had was large, clean and had a personal computer. The staff were incredibly pleasant and helpful. After two nights here we left to travel to Halong Bay leaving some luggage stored in the lobby which were a bit hesitant about but everything was safe when we returned. On our return to change luggage and travel to Sapa we were only at the hotel for two hours but were able to utilize a room with lounge chairs and access to showers and fresh towels. All this and we weren't even staying here. We booked an extra two nights for when we returned from Sapa at a cost of $30 per night again leaving luggage safely in the lobby. When we arrived early in the morning from the overnight train we were given immediate access to our room, even though it was only 7.30 am. Again the room was clean, spacious and with a PC. We arranged laundry and airport transfers through the hotel with the ever helpful staff Hoang and Hien who always had lovely smiles on their faces. Once you get your bearings the hotel is not too far from the main area closer to the lake, however we did find a lack of restaurants very close to the hotel itself. For the price, this hotel is top value for money and we would not hesitate to stay there again. Thank you Hoang and Hien for the wonderful level of service.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a deluxe room. It is probably only an extra $5 or $10 dollars.

We stayed here for 5 nyts this September and were pleasantly surprised by the hotel.we struggled to find budget non hostel places to stay and when we had exhausted our prepared list on arrival.we paid $22 per night (double room)and that included a decent breakfast.
Rooms were always clean and well maintained with helpful staff.
The only minor downfall here is that it's about a 10mins walk to the main old quarter lake but in contrast only 2mins from the nearest bia hoi corner.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a decent budget hotel in overpriced Hanoi.
