Hanoi Guesthouse

Posted by berendino on 10/8/2008 at 18:12

Located on 14 Bat Su street (in the old quarter) the Hanoi guesthouse is a convienient guesthouse. They have a few small rooms, but if they are full they know good guesthouses and hotels in the neighbourhood against good prices. Ms. Ling, Ms. Chang and Mr. Zung know a lot of Hanoi and can arrange good excursions to Halong, Sapa and Nam Coc/Hoa Lu. They offer a good breakfast and they offer you a room for a shower if you are coming back from excursions and travel further the same day.

I made reservations with Hanoi Guesthouse a good six months in advance on the recommendation of two friends, however, upon arrival my reservation was not held, and I was taken elsewhere. It seems that this is normal practice at HG, as I've heard others complain about the same practice. In addition, they promised to pick me up at Hanoi airport, and this service was never done. Why bother making reservations at all for this place? The real problem is that the tourist must waste his time looking for other accommodations.

Hi daawgon
We contacted Hanoi Gh by phone two days for our arrival. As agreed there was a taxi at the airport who brought us to HG. HG is a small Gh with I think 6 rooms, so very fast full. We got a room at the Prince2 hotel.I think the room was better than the room I saw at HG and this for the same price.Of course can things go wrong, but our experiense was positiv.
