Service second to none, great rooms and location

Quiet rooms with really good central location, staff were always friendly and incredibly helpful at every opportunity
We stayed during Tet and although the city could have become more difficult to explore, our stay was made easier and much more enjoyable by the excellent service we received from all the staff at Charming. Enjoyed our stay so much we stayed another 2 nights after returning from Halong Bay.
Shopping Tip: Very close to weekend night market, good for clothes and souvenirs.

Extremely friendly and helpful

The warm welcome, friendly service and excellent tips for eating out
This is a budget hotel in a very central location in the old town. The rooms are fine for the price, clean and with everything you need, nothing fancy. Some rooms have no natural light. Breakfasts are basic but fine for us. The thing that makes this hotel special is the staff, their English is excellent and all their advice was good. They organised a pick up from the airport for us, welcomed us with a cup of tea and had a room ready for us quite early in the morning. The restaurants they suggested were fantastic and the trip to The Perfume Pergoda was good. It was a great start to our travels in Vietnam to feel so looked after.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: We had a three day, two night trip to Halong Bay with Imperial Tours, spending one night on a boat and one night in a bungalow on a small island. It was cold in January but very beautiful. Miss out the trip to Monkey Island so that you can spend a little time around the bungalows.

Quiet, clean, comfortable

Good value for money.
Located off the Main Street so it's quiet at night. Rooms are a tad small but everything is clean. Beds are comfortable and the a/c works fine. Staff and reception are very helpful and friendly. Ala carte breakfast is pretty good as well.

staff could not be more helpfull

hotel is small but catered for our needs, is situated just off the main street down an ally so ask the girl on reception and she will give you a map. there are several geko restaurants in the area about 8 i beleive but there is one around the courner that serves very good food at very reasonable prices.
Restaurant Tip: geko restaurants are great food and value for money

Fantastic Hotel

Location, facilities and service
my wife and i stayed in this hotel from november 16-19 (3 nights), 2012 and again on november 22. the location was in the old town along a quiet, picturesque, pedestrian lane way although in hanoi where pedestrians go motor bikes go. our first 'standard' room was without a window but we were able to change to a window room after the first night at no extra cost. the wi-fi, ac, room facilities, cleanliness and service were without fault. the in-room computer was a bit problematic at times and the breakfast basic but sufficient (bargettes instead of plastic bread would improve things), but for the price what can you expect. the best element of our stay were the staff though. they couldn't do enough for us and and his assistant managers were able to advise on everything from taxi/transport costs, further hotel recommendations (always spot on) to tour options, and book accordingly at non marked up prices if requested. without a doubt this place was the best hotel experience we had in our 6 weeks travelling se asia.
