The "Service Queen" of Hanoi :)

Good location, great staff.
I have rarely felt so much at home and welcome as in the Charming Hotel in Hanoi. Obviously the owners of the group (they now own 5 hotels in that area) are outstanding people because they know how to choose their employees. The hotel itself is simple, cleaning is the Vietnamese way. Many rooms don't have windows. The location is fabulous (OK, you cannot get directly to the hotel by taxi as the little street is too small for cars to enter but it's less than 100 yards to the next bigger street) - but walking there early (and late) makes you feel you are part of real Hanoi life. And it's the staff that makes the difference. They will get you an awesome Pho noodle soup for breakfast (even with extra wishes like garlic marinated in vinegar), their coffee is second to none - and (at the time of this writing) the smile of the pregnant lady in charge of breakfast makes you surrender :) I love this place!

Great location and outstanding staff

Location, service
I am always sceptical when I read rave reviews by tourists from a different cultural background. In this case however I have to totally agree. The spirited, smiling service made me feel so much at home that it compensated the fact that I had booked a room without a window (by negligence and inexperience). I can wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone whose priority is good service.

Charming Hotel was, well, charming!

exceptional service, clean room
I couldn't rave more about this hotel - for a 2 star hotel it is exceptional value for money. The room was clean and the personal computer in every room and free wifi was an added bonus. The staff helped book tours, taxis and train trips, advised on when were paying too much and even refused a tip! We returned to the hotel 3 times during our trip, were offered free use of a room during a three hour stop over, and on the last night, after a storm had damaged the power we were transferred to their sister hotel, upgraded and presented with complementary wine and flowers because it was our last night of our honeymoon. We would definitely recommend this hotel!

Lovely Hotel and clean rooms

Location and friendly staff
Would stay again at this hotel. Hotel is small but rooms are clean, staff are very friendly and always eager to help. Great location as the hotel is tucked away in a side street but very close and a short walk for all to see.

Very nice room, very helpful staff

Staff helped book local tours, room immaculate and clean
Very helpful staff spoke very good english and helped us book a great Halong bay tour. Room was spotlessly clean and the hotel is in a great location in the old quarter. Booked last minute and called to see if they could pick us up from the airport which was all sorted for us, would definitely stay here again.

Great Hotel

Friendly staffs
We felt like home staying at the hotel and the staffs are meticulous and friendly. It definitely made our trip a fruitful one. I will definitely recommend the hotel to my friends and family if they are going Hanoi. The manager, Mr Duc and his staffs are all very helpful. We really enjoyed our trip and will definitely go back to this hotel for our next trip

Location, brilliant service and very clean and com

Just loved having a PC in the room. The locating was great, because the hotel is based on a quiet alley and still it is in the centre of Old Town Square.
I stayed three nights in the Charming Hotel and really enjoyed my staying. Had a very neat room with A/C, PC in the room, Cable TV and hot water shower for 14 € per night and it was totally worth the money. The staff was really helpful and flexible with the breakfast times, for instance and you felt yourself very welcome, which isn't so self-evident especially in Northern Vietnam. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Great Value for Money

Quiet Location
Arrived very weary and early off the train from Hoi An. We were givenvan early check-in and a much appreciated opportunity to freshen up anc catch up on some sleep. Staff all had very positive attitudes.

Cost effective!

Friendly, nice!
I stayed this hotel one night, we checked in this hotel very late, and we left for Halong tour next day very early, so,we do not spend so long time, but staff were very friendly, breakfast was satisfying for the price, and we were very happy to stay at this hotel! This hotel is located in the small alley of Hanoi ald quater, and you can enjoy the street also! The room was not fancy, but think about the price, it is very reasonable!

Central location, welcoming staff.

Clean, helpful staff, computer in room, free Internet, comfortable bed.
We had a great stay at the charming. It's a small narrow building and thus the rooms are narrow but more than adequate for the two of us. It did lack space for suitcases but a wardrobe was available. Breakfast was included in our room price and was more than adequate with reasonable choices. The bathroom is poorly designed as having a shower means a wet tiled floor, wet toilet seat and slippery conditions. City views room are not as advertised because all you see are the neighbour's window across the narrow lane way.
