Charming Hotel - Hanoi

Breakfast was served till 12pm which was great as we got up really late due to jet lag. Reception staff were really helpful and thier English was good.
We liked the Charming hotel as it was in a good location to visit all the main sights and the markets, and being down a small interesting side street it was quite quiet. They even gave us complimentary mangos and a bottle of local Dalat wine. They had maps and information on boat trips to Halong Bay and changed money for us. Overall it was fine for a 2 night stay.
Restaurant Tip: Papa Joe's coffee shop - just on the main junction at the north west end of the Lake. Great juices and Pho.

clean, great laundry service, central location, helpful staff
i really liked the place. it was clean and comfortable, with a good breakfast. i will stay there again on my return transit through hanoi. the staff were helpful, and one guy took me to a local pharmacy to help me get some meds I needed. The place is very centrally located and easy to get around, tough the block it's on is very strange from a western standpoint.

Charming hotel

* Off the main street = no noice from street or pubs * Extremly friendly staff * Clean room with fridge and big lcd tv
We liked the friendliness of the staff (and their english skills) and the fact that they would assit you with any type of request. They e.g. helped us arrange both train tickets to Da nang and hotel in hoi an and more or less no extra cost. The room itself is quite small, but its clean has a/c, a big lcd tv and a fridge. Bathroom was also nice and clean. For us breakfast was inluded and there was a coice between continetal, american and vietnamise. They would also make Coffee and tea for you at any time at no additional cost. Which is nice when you want to relax after some hours out in the city. And as its on a side street its no street noice either. As most hotels in vietnam they also had a couple of computers with internet access in the lobby area. From a cost perspective it would have been a few dollars (3USD) cheaper to book directly with the hotel that through agoda. So in short, we would recommend the hotel for others. Only complaint is really the construction noice from next door that starts at 0700 every morning. However I expect this to be temporary thing and probably not even affect you.

Good option at Old Quarter

Location, cleanliness of the room, friendly staff.
Charming Hotel is located in a lively small alley in Old Quarter, a real sample of this amazing town, at a walking distance of main attractions. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They helped us to arrange Halong Bay Tour, and the price they got for us was cheaper than the one we had got in travel agencies. Rooms are neat and clean, though some of them does not have a window(which is not uncommon in this region). More attention should be given on common areas: breakfast tables were not so clean, and lobby toilet really stank.

Pleasant Stay at Charming Hotel

Centre of the tourist attraction (near to Hoan Kiem lake) Friendly and helpful staff
Charming hotel is located near to Hoan Kiem lake (less than 10 mins walk), and near to tourist attraction. The staff have been very helpful, and made my stay there one of the most pleasant and value for money stay.
Hotel Feature Tip: In view of the much potential scam taking place in Hanoi, always be safe by asking for Hotel's front desk help. THe price offered by Hotel for the day tour to Halong Bay could be even lower than the tour company out there. And it's SAFE. Same goes to Taxi Booking. For Malaysia Travellers in particular, please bring USD instead of RM, as most of the bureau de exchange at Vietnam would not exchange their VND with RM.

Charming hotel, HaNoi

very friendly staff, very good modern and clean rooms, with flat screen tv and pc with internet in the room, very good central location, close to lake, shops, food etc.
After 2 paid nights in hotel, went on two tours, after each one had a free shower in the hotel and they kept my big luggage for 5 days. Even waited for me at the train station at 5 AM after Sapa. Every single person in the hotel was very friendly, always with smile and trying to help. Strongly recomended.
