lovely friendly staff
There were always staff at the front door and reception eager to open doors for you and make sure you had everything you need.
rooms were clean and well priced. the staff were very accomodating, our friends staying with us had to leave early for a bus and the staff were nice enough to start breakfast an hour early for them. it was a very pleasant stay.

Good location but that's it
Good location
It might be that we were unlucky staying during Tet, but that shouldn't be an excuse. Apart from the location, which is close to the lake and in the old town, nothing was right. Staff seemed to have party every night, cooking food for themselves, which we could strongly smell in our room. Room was small and smelly all the time. Once there was no hot water so we asked for a key to another room as we wanted to take a shower and leave. We got a key to a dirty room, with no hot water anyway!!! Taxi service to the airport was much more expensive than what was offered in other places. The place where you get breakfast was freezing cold - everyone wearing winter jackets, and we were told most of the breakfast things are not available cause of Tet (however there was lots of food for the staff every day). Also, when we asked for a map we got a bad copy of the nearest area, so I asked for a bigger map, and was told I can get one in tourist office. When we got there it was closed - I think staff should be aware about things like that.

little gem in the old quarter
staff, location, clean rooms
enjoyed our stay. it was the coldest days so far this year. the heat worked well in the rooms but there was none in the hallways. this didn't really matter to us. loved the ambiance. breakfast was good.

Great Hotel, friendly, enthusiastic, helpful staff
Great, helpful, friendly staff
we stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, they were open to given advice about where to visit and eat and were always friendly and welcoming. they even shared a meal with us one night whilst we were waiting for a tour. the front desk booked a tour up to sapa for us at very reasonable prices and arranged all our transport. there are rooms with or without windows, we prefer windows but did not mind the room without. the rooms are very clean and made up every day. the location is very central with lots of attractions within walking distance to the hotel. the highlight of this hotel is defiantly the staffs enthusiasm to assist their customers.

Fantastic staff but small rooms
clean rooms and exceptionally helpful staff
We were very happy with the Charming Hotel. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and the room although small was well appointed and very clean. The hotel was well positioned within walking distance of the railway station and most sights.
