This hotel is good for single traveller not for family. Bar and restaurant are in one area. There is a desktop with the printer to print your boarding pass or check your email for free in the lobby.
Great value, central location”

Not the best”
I understand that for little money you should not be so picky. But I can tell you that staying here was testing. Both my partner and I had cockroaches crawl on us on the balcony, (which didn't happen in other properties in the same location), and we found the maintenance to be less than desirable. The rooms are dated, but for that price what do you expect. Staff at night sucks, staff during the day are attentive and helpful. Location is where you want to be, but we just did not feel comfortable in this place. 6 months in SEA and we just didn't like this place. But it may very well suit other travelers. We really didn't like Hanoi in general and that may have had something to do with it, but really, the cockroaches on the balcony did it for us. Wasn't that clean though. When we walked into the room, the balcony had a tremendous amount of cigarettes on the floor, broken light on the ground left from God knows how many nights, and the bathroom maintenance was shaddy at best. But not the worst place...
Second time ”
Been there on 2 seperate occasions and like the value you get for your money. Clean rooms, good breakfast, best location and friendly staff. No complaints.
One of the best”
Friendliest and most helpful staff you could hope for.

Always a pleasure to stay there”
location, staff, breakfast
So far we have used this hotel multiple time. Very nice staff, very good buffet for breakfast. It is in the middle of the old quarter.
Value for money”
Very close to the city center, lake but little noisy during the night. Freindly and helpfull stuff are available.
Everything was good”
I spent a night in Camellia 4. The room was clean, beautiful and the staff was very helpful.
The only drawback was the breakfast, that when we came in, some dishes ran out and they did not supply further.
Small and under kept could be renovated and update”
Location. Location location
Sure needs to be renovated power went out and small elevator
Camellia 4 (I wish they understand more English)”
Location, Free Breakfast, Cheap
It's a good hotel if you're not so particular in every detail in a room. What can you expect from a cheap hotel. It's not dirty and they regularly clean your room when you're out for the day. Not every room has blow dryer. Not all the staff can speak english. Or should I say only few staff can understand little english at most. But I hope they can do something about it. Also, when you want to book a tour, check other hotels offering the same tour because Camellia's tour is so expensive ($45 for 1 day Ha Long bay tour). We asked other hotels and got our tour for only $21 at most. I don't know the difference, but at the time of our tour, Ha Long was very foggy so $21 is the best price for such day. It was already a 12-hour tour so I don't know what a $45-tour can add to what we did.
It's a good hotel for someone not spending their whole day in their room.
Convenient place to stay”
Close to attractions; Low price; Friendly staff
Felt the hotel was over priced. Got very annoyed at housekeeping staff talking loudly, rustling bags at 7am outside my room. Walls very thin, so found it hard to get uninterrupted rest. Would not return.
