“Just Great”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

If you haven't been to this part of the world before then be prepared for your senses to be assaulted. If it isn't the noise of the motorbikes it's the constant honking (beeping is a better word) of horns, initially that is where my concern lay with the location of the hotel more or less at a busy junction in the Old Quarter. I needn't have worried though because whatever was going outside was not reflected in the calm of the inside of the hotel where any request was met with a smiling face & an enthusiastic attitude !! As it turned out the location was ideal as it allowed us to wander around the old quarter at night without ever being too far from the hotel & sanctuary from the hustle & bustle of the streets. In terms of value for money it was incredible, we had come from Kuala Lumpur & had been paying nearly three times as much for 1 night as was the total for 3 nights in Charming 2 Hotel, ok not a completely fair comparison as the hotels did differ in terms of star rating but nevertheless I was still amazed at the level of accomodation & service we got for our money in Hanoi. Definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the old quarter area.

Had a great stay at charming2 , The staff couldn't do enough for us especially Mary
They even organised a suprise birthday party for a mate.
We were hijacked by another hotel during the taxi ride from the airport to charming 2, They told us that our hotel had double booked & they were taking us to a better one.
When we got there we realised it was a scam & found our way back to charming 2 ,minus 1 bag.
Mary at reception spent hours trying to track down our bag for us.
Great location , great staff, great room. The breakfast was all you could ask for
I would highly reccomend this hotel to anyone

I spent two nights in this hotel last week, after traveling elsewhere in Asia for business. I could not have been more pleased. Service was way beyond expected, ultra-friendly staff, and a sumptuous breakfast buffet that was worth the price of the room all by itself. I was treated with care and respect and made to feel at home and even as one of the family! I would love to return with my wife to share with her the unique experience of this hotel. Truly a high point of my trip to Asia. -- JG, Carrollton TX

We booked a 4 night stay as the start of a 6 mth journey through S-E Asia. The hotel is located right in the Hanoi Old Quarter. At first is looks hectic, loud and smelly but don't worry you learn to appreciate and even love this part of town. We spent most of our time just sitting on a little stool outside of a pub, sipping beer or coffee, looking at the variety of people passing by or having interesting chats with strangers.
About the hotel: when we arrived they upgraded our room, free of charge for the first night, just because it was available. We had some problems with the shower and the safe but they immediately fixed it after we mentioned it. The staff is very (for some maybe overly) friendly abd helpfull. It's not the chapest place around but the location and the staff surely make up for that.

Great location in the old city. Easy to explore and when we needed a taxi the hotel was more than happy to make the arrangements. In fact the staff were very obliging for anything we needed and were more than happy to make all arrangements. The room was spacious and an added bonus was an inroom computer. We especially enjoyed the extra touches like complimentary fresh fruit and water in the room everyday. Breakfast was included and was a great array of dishes both Western and Vietnamese. my wife says the brown bread was the only one we have seen in Viet Nam.

in a nutshell

* staff that go BEYOND
* great breakfast
* free upgrade to honeymoon suite for no reason - had AC, tv, dvd, fridge with free water and a bottle of wine and chocolate
* GREAT bathroom wtih massive showerhead and bath

i was so glad my halong bay trip was cancelled so i got to stay longer

Charming 2 Hotel was excellent! In the heart of old Hanoi. The rooms were very clean, spacious and comfortable. I can't speak highly enough of the staff - incrediably helpful and friendly! Can't believe it was only $25 a night! Would recommend it to anyone!
