Church Boutique Hotel Hang Gai
Ranked #184 of 606 Hotels in Hanoi
Reviewed November 14, 2013

We stayed at the Church Boutique Hotel Hang Gai for a total of 3 nights in October 13. Very pleasant hotel, lovely comfortable rooms and excellent professional staff made our last few days in Vietnam very enjoyable. We dined in the restaurant on two nights, we found the food to be lovely and the waiting staff very friendly and helpful. We would definitely love to stay in this delightful hotel again when we are back in Hanoi again.

We stayed for two nights in the Church Boutique Hotel (care, there are at least of this name in Hanoi) in Hang Gai, while exploring the city of Hanoi.

The hotel has one of those narrow frontages that are so easy to miss, but once you enter the lobby the class of the hotel is evident. Smart and friendly staff were there to greet us later to give us good advice on the city geography.

Our sixth-floor room was reasonably sized, with good quality decor and a layout that made the most of the space. Although we had large windows overlooking the street, traffic noise was not a problem. Our friend, however, did not fare as well, being given a small room with no windows on the second floor.

Breakfast is served on the mezzanine; the usual buffet formula of hot and cold food was available, with efficient staff looking after the hot drinks. Beyond breakfast, catering is very limited, but being located within the old quarter of Hanoi, you barely have to go out the front door for a good choice of restaurants.

Having been on the move for a week, we needed some clothes washed. The hotel would have charged in excess of 1m Dong for our 3Kg of laundry. A short walk down the road we found a travel shop who did a very good same day service for only 75,000 Dong. Quite a saving.

No gym or pool, but then this isn't a large hotel, so I wouldn't expect such facilities.

All things considered, a very good place to stay if you plan to eat out.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with windows!

Stayed 1 night at this hotel. Quiet hotel with acceptable service level.

Room: Spacious for a boutique hotel. Room deco is soothing and relaxed. Stayed at the top floor, aircon vent is leaking throughout the night, just slight water dripping sound.
Service: Front office and restaurant staff are friendly. Will try to strike a conversation with guest. English ability reasonable for normal conversation.
Location: walking distance to the lake.
Breakfast: International spread, good breakfast.

Recommended for Business & Vacation.

We spent just one night on this hotel. Glad it was only one night!
We arrived at night, around 10:00 p.m. and we were very tired.
We hadn't dined, so, on the check-in, we asked the recepcionist if it was possible to had some food (at the bar/restaurante/room service). He informed us that it won't be possible, since, at that hour, they didn't serve anything at the hotel. We were starving (and very exausted to have forces to go another place, far from there, and eat. Every shop around was closed and we didn't find any restaurant near the hotel.). So we asked if he could go at the hotel's kitchen and bring us something (a piece of fruit or bread). He answered no! And he was not even a little nice or showed interest for us.
We ended eating only one snickers from the hotel's minibar!

We didn't feel ourselves comfortable on this hotel. It's VERY narrow!! It's cloistered between two buildings and the corridors are really very narrow! The room was very very small! We felt ourselves asphyxiated there.

Breakfast was regular, not good. The breakfast area is also really tiny!

On the check-out, the recepcionist wasn't nice, again. Not even interested in knowing if we enjoyed our stay!

We understand that this hotel concept is frequent in Hanói (I mean hotels built between two buildings - kind of stuck) but Church Boutique Hotel Hang Gai is too much!! It's claustrophobic... the way the space is distributed, the kind of architecture... I don't know... but we really felt ourselves badly here. We only wanted to go away, faster as possible!

We won't return to this hotel. Essence Hanoi Hotel, for example, is undoubtly a better and ideal option, in terms of this kind of hotel. We loved it.

First experience in Vietnam staff was amazing Rooms are nice too, very clean
Centrally located inthemarket part of town easy to walk. We learned from staff how to weave through the very busy street. Bicycles, mopeds, cars weave through each other. Amazing to see how aware they all are of each other

What a little gem, situated in the old quarter. Highly efficient and helpful staff,so friendly. Rooms clean, well decorated and have everything you need. The young doorman is so charming and parts the traffic like the Red Sea when walking you across the road.

We stayed here 2 nights, the location is great, walking distance to activities and street shopping. The breakfast was absolutely delicious! The staff was super friendly and helpful, they even helped us cross the crazy busy streets of Hanoi. The only negative is the pillows in the room, hard as rocks! We've found this throughout our SE Asia travels though.
