Not to sure why or how the previous reviewer had such a bad experience at the F Hotel. Might be a French thing... i dunno. I was set upon by Perfume's brother when trying to look for a hotel. Having just arrived i thought id give him a chance to show me. Went in a met Perfume and a couple of other Aussie backpackers who had nothing but praise for the Hotel. Based on this i left my bags downstairs while Perfume showed me my potential room. There was a bit of pressure, but for the price and the fact that breakfast was included, i thought id give her a go. I shopped around to get some deals on my further travel throughout Vietnam. I brought these back to F Hotel and she beat the price with a few extras. The city tour was done on the back of a Moto with her brother and lunch was included. This was cheap too. To make a long story short, she planned the next 16 days for me and everything went off without any problems. Everyone knew Miss Perfume and was happy to see me once i arrived. I was so impressed with the service that i recommended fellow travelers heading to Ha Noi. Every time one of the people i met checked in I recived a phone call from them thanking me. I have since been in contact with Perfume and we have exchanged gifts via mail. Ill be going back there in May 2010 just to visit Perfume and her family. I cant speak high enough of them.
