Hanoi Charming 2 Hotel
Ranked #34 of 607 Hotels in Hanoi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2011

We loved our stay here in the center of the ‘Old Quarter’ of Hanoi, so convenient to stroll through the many interesting streets and an pleasant walk to the hub of Hanoi – Hoan Kiem lake. The service and friendliness of all the staff was the best we have experienced anywhere in the world! The hotel arranged a car to pick us up from the airport, well worth it and all went very smoothly. Charming is a small boutique type hotel, small enough for the staff to call you by name each time you walk by the desk, with genuine warmth and care. The rooms are lovely, modern, spotlessly clean with a computer and full size bath. We upgraded to a larger room with a balcony, with nice big open doors and a view over the street. The highlight of our stay would be how friendly the staff were at Charmin II. We had a late afternoon flight and they allowed us to shower and freshen up for no extra charge, incredible service. The staff all gave us a hug and waved us off when we left, lovely touch – they make you feel so important and you feel as though you have been staying with good friends. No wonder it is called Charming Hotel, it was fantastic, great value for money, highly recommended. booking@hanoicharminghotel.com

Room Tip: It's worthwhile paying a little bit extra for a room with a balcony overlooking the street.

Have just returned from 4 nights at Charming2 Hotel and will definitely stay here again. The staff are wonderful and welcoming. Rooms are large and spotlessly clean - free use of internet on a computer in our hotel room. Very central location, great breakfast. Thank you for all your kindness and friendship Rose, Sophie and all the staff at Charming2

We stayed a week in the Charming Hotel II in Hanoi. We picked it off the internet and were so glad with our choice, it really is top notch, especially for the price. We also used it as a base while we stayed overnight in Halong Bay. From the very first day, the staff were very friendly and so helpful. Always greeting you with a smile and welcoming you to breakfast, asking about your adventures each day, opening the door. They really made us feel at home. I would definately return to Charming on our return to Hanoi and would highly recommend a stay here. We stayed in room 503, which was large and modern. The fresh daily fruit was an unexpected treat. And it was great to have a computer and internet access in our room (as my partner was keen to get EPL and other sport updates, and didnt want to miss his fantasy teams). The location is good, a little walk to the food places and the centre of town, but the best restaurant we ate at was Highway 4, right around the corner, beautiful food and a selection of snake wines. Yum! If your considering this hotel, book it!!

We spent 3 nights in this hotel.
The rooms are very clean.
All the staff was very friendly and helpful!
They helped us in different tasks as confirm a flight, print some stuff and other things!
They proposed us to use a non occupied room just before leaving to have a shower! Very nice before 12 hours flight!
It was my birthday during the last night, they saw that on my passport, and they offered me some flowers! Very nice :)
A nice adress in Hanoi!

Room Tip: Ask to be in an high floor to have window!

We used thís as our home base while travelling in North Vietnam, it was our best decision. We were greeted by all the staff like we were their old friends. The rooms were clean and comfortable. nothing was a problem for them, from extra clean towels to booking tours guide, last minute water puppet show tickets and the extra delight for us was a 4.30 am pick up from the Sapa train which was readily accomodated. These people are wonderful, they definitely go above and beyond.

Fabulous location on the edge of the old quarter, walking distance to everywhere. Felt safe all the time with our children aged 12 and 15 years old.

Included breakfast was filling with good variety of Vietnamese and Western choices.

Faultless customer service. Felt like family yet professional all the time. Would highly recommend to all but especially for those with children who need a family room.

Room Tip: 501 has a larger balcony

Stayed at the hotel for four nights in September whilst visiting Hanoi for Business. I was a little nervous as previously in Vietnam have only every stayed in chain corporate hotels hilton etc. but decided to give this hotel a try and very glad that I did. The service was excellent, very friendly helpful staff. I had a problem with a lost package that i needed for a presentation and the hotel staff were very helpful, looking for contact details for customs etc. I was upgraded from a junior suite to a huge room on my second night and this had a balcony that overlooked the main street. The room came with a free bottle of wine and fruit was replaced daily. The prices for the mini bar were cheaper than on the street (£0.30!) for a large bottle of water/ beer. The internet connection was excellent (better than at the 5* Traders hotel in KL where I had stayed the night before) and the PC in the room was very helpful.

Room Tip: Pay the extra to get a suite- well worth it!

I picked Chaming 2 Hotel based on the reviews in TA and stayed there for 1 night, from 24-25 September. The hotel was just as what the reviewers said - impeccable service (a bit over friendly at times), clean rooms with all the amenities of a 5-star hotel (including bath robes and in-room computer!), located in the Old Quarter and was within walking distance of most sights, abundance of eateries nearby, plus many more ....

We stayed in room 202 which only has a small window opening on to the light-well. For us, this was a blessing in disguise as we were spared the noise from the traffic on busy Hang Ga Road.

I will definitely stay there again.
