“Great place - friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2011

Right in the heart of the old quarter of Hanoi (the most interesting area), Charming 2 is a well-run, friendly and efficient modern hotel. The staff will bend over backwards to help you, which can be quite important if, like us, you suddenly had to re-arrange your whole trip due to the four-day 'Liberation' holiday. Actually, on that note, be aware that from 30 April from four days everything is booked up (planes, trains, hotels, etc). The guidebooks don't tell you this, as we found out to our cost. Back to Charming 2...the breakfast is great and varied, the rooms are spacious and there's internet in the rooms (again, essential for planning your stay. All in all...a five-star gem for half the price!

Room Tip: at the back of the hotel to avoid scooter beeps

A very good room with excellent double-glazed window. So it is not too noisy. Some rooms are inside without window.
Excellent charming and helpful stuff!

Only have great things to say about this hotel. Stayed 3 nights at this hotel and paid $40 per night for a superior room. Was cheaper for me to book through the hotel website because they offered free pick-up (and I didn't feel like getting a taxi at the airport). If not, I would have booked it at agoda.com. Chose this hotel based on its Old Market location and tripadvisor reviews. Stayed in room 203 (good size room) - king size bed, flat screen tv with at least a handful of channels in English, free wi-fi, computer, and 2 free bottles of water per day. Everything in the room and bathroom were very new. The free breakfast buffet was tasty, with a variety of western and Vietnamese food, including pho, vietnamese eggrolls, croissants, eggs, bacon, potatoes, noodles, fried rice, juices, fruit. Each staff member provided great customer service. They were very professional, friendly and helpful. They gave us some good restaurant recommendations in our area - one was a place called Bun Cha, which seemed more local and was delicious, and Highway 4, which had a mix of locals and tourists, more expensive, but delicious. (I would also recommend going to Quan An Ngon - mix of locals and tourists, great food, not in the neighborhood.) If you just tell the staff what type of food and atmosphere you are looking for, they will give you a great recommendation. We explored the neighborhood by foot and would ask a staff member to get us a reliable taxi as needed (we got ripped off by a taxi we got on the street ourselves - think he tampered with the meter - so beware!). It's rare that you get this type of service and accommodations for $40 a night. Would definitely stay at Charming 2 again next time I'm in Hanoi and highly recommend it to everyone!

By accident we found ourself in Charming 2 Hotel - the Hotel we were due to go to was overbooked. I am certainly glad we did stay there however. The staff are polite, friendly and most helpful. The room was clean and the PC with internet in the room was a great touch. The breakfast was good if not spectacular. I will certainly be staying here again when next in Hanoi.

We planned on staying 2 nights in Hanoi at the Charming 2 hotel, but ended up staying for 7 nights largely due to the incredible staff of the Charming. After traveling for 4 months, it kind of felt like being at home...extremely clean rooms, nice hot showers, comfortable beds, a computer in the room, delicious breakfast and a staff that is willing to help in every way. On the night we arrived the staff was throwing a birthday party for one of the guests and by the night we left we went out for karaoke with them. A big family feeling. This was the highlight of our time in Vietnam. Stay at the Charming 2, you'll love it.
