Classic Street Hotel (Pho Co Hotel)
No shortage of character
What we say:
It doesn't look like much from the outside, but Classic Street Hotel (aka Pho Co Hotel) offers well-furnished rooms in both old and new wings.
The basement dining area is on the gloomy side, but things get brighter when you move up to the unusual atrium that connects the front of the hotel to the back. Hardwood furniture and intricate iron handrails in the common spaces add to the hotel's pleasantly lived-in atmosphere. Rooms are divided into a few different areas, each accessed by separate entrances. A small staircase leads to the old rooms above reception, which have a rather tired feel and don't compare to those in the new wing (or the similar priced rooms at Cozy Hotel II for that matter).
The new wing is accessed via a lift, and here you'll find smarter rooms with attractive dark wood furnishings.
All rooms have windows, but the amount of light corresponds to the price, with balconies and/or large windows in the most expensive. Rooms in both the new and old wings come with air-con, TVs, desks, mini-bars, decent toiletries, internet access and, importantly, squidgy, well dressed beds.
A Western/Vietnamese a la carte breakfast is included with all room rates, making Classic Street decent value for the money, especially considering its central Old Quarter location on lively Hang Be Street.

Clean & Convenient
Clean, yes. Convenient location, bang on! Breakfast to be skipped. Rooms are fine and comfy, except get one in the back, as street noise goes from 5 am ''til 10 pm. Friendly professional staff. Lots of interesting deco. Great shower pressure!

A Solid Option
Great location, very helpful/friendly staff. Room was fine and had no street noise. Two free pc's available for internet access. In general maybe a little over priced, but all-in-all we very much enjoyed our stay here.

Clean and quiet
Not the cheapest hotel in the area but worth the extra few dollars. Good sized rooms, very clean and well appointed. The staff are also very friendly and helpful without being overbearing. The location is superb, smack in the middle of Pho Hang Be and just one minutes walk (if you can dodge the street hawkers) from Hoan Kiem lake. If I'm ever back in Hanoi I'll be staying here.

A bit more money than we wanted to spend, but a really decent hotel that is surprisingly quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful despite our very early arrival (off the train from Sapa) and very early departure (to the airport for a 6am flight)
