The room (Augustine) was nice, but some sneaky previous guest used the razor and shaving cream from the complimentary toiletries and then left the half used shaving cream in the pack - housekeeping did not check it. Rooms have thin walls so you hear people in the hall talking. When booking a tour I specifically asked that the tour company drop me back at the hotel, the hotel staff member said he would ensure that. I also asked for the optional water puppet show at the end of the tour. I got the water puppet show but the tour company did not pick me up after it and they only told me when dropping me off. I ended up walking back, but I should have been told this earlier by the hotel. Also I had to pay for the tour in cash only. On the good side, staff were courteous but some had limited English. I read on another website about how great the Pho soup was at the hotel restaurant - I can 100% agree. It was so good I had it two nights in a row; it was a good price and good serving portion. And service was fast. Other good points: close to the church and lots of shops and I felt safe walking around.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The centre of Catholicism in Hanoi is the beautifully dilapidated neo-Gothic, St Joseph’s Cathedral. Built in the early days of the colony at the expense of a revered pagoda that was demolished in the name of France's mission civilisatrice, St Joseph’s opened its doors to worshippers in 1886. Many of the buildings in and around the area were built in the service of the cathedral in the late 19th century. Built as Presbytery House, the hotel was one of Old Quarter’s first edifications of the Cathedral – converted into a hotel in 2002 set the standard for hotels that followed. Ten years later, after undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation, this is Old Quarter’s newest boutique hotel. The original Church Boutique Hotel Nha Tho is a sanctuary of sumptuous dining, and self-indulgent relaxation, on the heart of the Old Quarter.Eco-friendly Operations - Green initiatives have been implemented throughout the hotel including a key card activated energy systems in rooms.
