“Charming 2 rates a 10!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

When you visit Hanoi, you must stay in the Old Quarter ("36 Streets") and you MUST stay at the Charming 2! In a lifetime of traveling, I have never encountered such happy, caring and attentive staff. When you check in, say hello to Danny and Mary for me. Everyone speaks English, the rooms are spotless and the charming (of course) restaurant serves the best breakfast in Hanoi. I arrived in need of a SIM for my phone and Danny walked me across the street and made sure the shop gave me what I needed--then he installed and activated the chip and handed me back a working cell phone! Mary recommended, then arranged a day trip to the serene Mai Chau Valley. And she always answered my endless questions with a smile, taught me so much about the Vietnamese culture, even made certain I learned a few words in Vietnamese. So much more than just a hotel. Stay here; you'll cherish the memory.

Room Tip: Trust the staff to give you the best available.

We stayed 3 nights here in late March, at the start of our Vietnam/Cambodia trip. It's hard to believe that a whole team of staff can be so genuinely friendly, informative and helpful. They are all obviously so very happy in their work and really want to make your stay in Hanoi as memorable as possible. Forget the large, corporate, Western style hotels. For a super stay in Hanoi choose Hotel Charming. Being in the middle of the Old Quarter you are also only a short walk away from Hoan Kiem Lake, Water Puppets and right in the midst of the bustling shopping area, dotted with lovely local eateries and bars. If unsure of anything, the front desk staff will help you out!

Room Tip: Rooms at front are more expensive but have great view of interesting street scene below

We stayed at Hanoi Charming 2 twice during our trip to Vietnam. It was absolutely fabulous both times with clean rooms, good wifi, fresh fruit and water everyday a great central location and beautiful breakfast included in the room rate. However, as many others have said, the staff are the jewel in the crown - everyone knows you by name and you are made to feel very welcome. I found that recommendations for restaurants were always perfect and information on shopping, tours and transfers just couldn't be faulted. All hotel staff have really excellent English and they know how to have fun and share a joke with you.

To top it all off, the room rates are very modest!

Does it get any better than this?

Hanoi Charming 2 Hotel was the first place we stayed in Vietnam, and we could not have asked for a better introduction to the country. The location is convenient; the facilities are clean and comfortable; the breakfast is so substantial that we were able to get by on two meals a day. But what distinguishes this hotel is the staff. They could not have been more friendly, informative, efficient, helpful and welcoming. They set a standard that none of the Vietnam hotels we subsequently stayed at could match. We joked for the rest of the trip that the only souvenir we really wanted to take home from Vietnam was Mary to be our personal concierge and make things run smoothly for the rest of our lives!

From the very moment you arrive at Hanoi Charming 2, the staff's commitment to detail is quickly realized. Everyone there was incredibly eager to help at every corner during my 5 night stay.

Fantastic breakfast in the morning, with pleasant service.

The location of the hotel is one of the more enticing features of the facility, in my mind; lots of incredible architecture in Hanoi's Old Quarter.

Above all, I would say the staff is truly what makes the experience at Hanoi Charming 2.

I would absolutely recommend for anyone looking for a reasonably priced, well outfitted hotel.

Room Tip: I stayed on serval floors during the visit. The top floor was the greatest, simply because of the vi...
