Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

Arriving back from Ha Long Bay, we did not have accommodation booked after another establishment had disappointed us prior to the trip. We were lucky enough to stumble in to Tu Linh as it is close to Hanoi happenings, and were greeted by River - the friendliest most helpful and welcoming host. He was understanding of our budget constraints and on inspection, we were so impressed by the clean and well furnished rooms we decided we had to stay. They were eager to assist with other services such as airport transfer and laumdry and I felt a genuine effort to develop a relationship and understand our needs and intentions. I highly recommend staying at this hotel.

You won't go hungry or thirsty while staying at Tu Linh. The staff are super-friendly, and they have great knowledge about Hanoi. Their English skills are very good as well. The hotel itself is located perfectly - the street is actually rather quiet, and very easy to find. The room was nice, clean and well-equipped. Be aware that you have no privacy from each other in the bathroom though - the walls are glass and all noise is let through. Breakfast is fine - they have a standard buffet and in addition you can order something from the menu. All in all great value!

Room Tip: There's far less noise at the back of the house than the rooms facing the street. This is perfec...

Location: Tu Linh Palace is located in the old city, close to most of the sights, restaurants and best street food. If you're coming from the airport do have them arrange a transfer. It's fair priced.

Quality of rooms: Tu Linh Palace has exceptional high value compared to the price. The rooms are on small side (at least for single occupancy rooms), but they are clean and very nice.

Service: The staff are very attentive to your well-being and will assist you in any way possible. The breakfast seems to be the "Hanoi standard"; a mixture of Vietnamese and Continental hot options together with a buffet.

We used Trip Advisor to find accommodation for our first few nights in Hanoi. The response to our request via email was instant, answering all our queries promptly. We were warmly welcomed by all the staff who could not have been more helpful. We were immediately upgraded to the larger Honeymoon Suite with a big window looking onto the action in the street below. Very clean and comfortable. We were offered a map of the town and told where all the best restaurants and tourist attractions were. On day 2 we arranged our onward trips to Sapa, Halong Bay and Hue and a flight to Ho Chi Minh City - all through the hotel. They gave us the best prices and we weren't disappointed with any of the arrangements they booked. They even booked our rickshaw town ride and a spa morning for us. As added extras they arranged taxis between our out of town trips and allowed us to use their shower facilities and even offered us food when we arrived back unexpectedly at 10pm from one of our trips. We would certainly recommend this hotel to any traveller - extremely great value for money with knowledgeable and helpful staff. Thank you Bac and Tim and the eager gentleman who helped us late that evening (we didn't get his name). PS - a week later when we wanted to change our flight from Danang to Ho Chi Minh, we called Bac and she was very helpful. So 10 out of 10 for Tu Linh Palace.

Room Tip: Ask for the Honeymoon Suite - a larger room with a big window

After staying 3 nights at another hotel in Hanoi, we were happy to move here, where prices were cheaper, and the rooms and facilities exceptional! For such a budget price, you don't expect completely clean and western style bathrooms (the best shower we have had in 2 months in Asia so far!)! Beds comfortable, staff friendly and accommodating, and the free breakfast is excellent. Highly recommend this hotel for a step up from the usual budget accommodations!

Stayed here in January. Booked two rooms, but manager tried to put us in one shared room. After 20 hours of flying I did not want to share a room and after I saw the small size of room it was not going to happen. I had read a earlier review that reported the same problem, they had also booked two rooms and were told when they got to the hotel that they only had one,,,excuse was, they thought the two room request was a mistake, but they let the charge go through. Anyway, after a while he found another room and all was well. As I said the rooms are very small, but very clean. Breakfast was okay nothing special but they do have free coffee and tea available all day in the lobby. The staff was nice, spoke very good English.
