“Prince I and II”
Reviewed 15 October 2011

We have stayed both in Prince I and II. Bothe hotels heve very friendly staff (english speaking) and are situated in the city center (bothe in the same road). I liked Prince II better as there are computers in every room and it's a lot cleaner. I'd recommend both hotels though (Prince II is a little bit more expensive)

One of the nicest hotels we stayed in in Vietnam. Great value! We booked a superior room. It was large, clean, very nice. Has everyting you need , including Wi-Fi and a computer. Friendly staff. Left our luggage there when we travelled to SaPa. Allowed us to check in very early when we were back from SaPa. Cheap laundry services. Great location. Breakfast a little limited but got the same selection in more pricy hotels in Vietnam.

Room Tip: We always book a good room at a cheap hotel and not a cheap room at a pricy hotel

We used this hotel as a rest day between 2 train journeys so we arrived 5am and left at 8pm. We paid $30 but really thought the room was great. We understood that they had to charge us the full rate.

It was on the 6th level (maybe 7th) I think on the street side. Not sure what the class of room was but we felt really comfortable here. Bed was really comfy. Everything clean. Nice wooden flooring. Good bathroom.

It was luck that brought us to this hotel. We arrived in Hanoi at 4am not knowing what we were doing. We were not feeling great so wanted a room to rest. A man at the station showed us a picture of "his" hotel and put us in a taxi, telling the cab driver to take us there for 50k VND.

We arrived at the hotel and it was all shutup. The owner comes down and says they are full. A little "discussion" ensued between me, the taxi driver and the hotel owner while Jen was dying quietly in the gutter. Anyway it ended with me eventually paying the taxi driver, him swearing (although I didn't understand what he was saying, I'm pretty sure 75% of the words were not nice ones), the hotel owner scrunching up the map we had and throwing it on ground with much dark fervor. Short of it was we were standing alone at 430am - Jenny almost dying - darkness - in a city we'd never been to and having no idea where we were. Goooood morning Hanoooi.

We then proceeded to knock on garage like doors until we found the Prince hotel 20 minutes later. They take being woken up pretty well I must say.

Breakfast - the singing chef. Was simple was fresh and tasty.

Computer in the room - very helpful.

Anyway, it may be the "prince in shining armor coming to rescue us from our darkest moments" veil that puts this hotel in a very good light for us but we're very happy to give it 4 stars.

It's seems a bit Jekyll and Hyde though from some of the other reports. Maybe they are working their way down the building with renos? Maybe you need to request a new room? Ours was 601 (I think)

Location is another plus. Pretty close to the crazy tai chi lake

Reviewed 11 April 2011

We arrived at the hotel after checking it out on TripAdvisor. We were given room 103. It's a nightmare. The room is moldy, smelled of humidity and cigarettes, the cushions, pillows and bedsheets were stained. The manager told usto turn on the air conditionning that it would remove the humidity... My wife refused to stay in the room. Talked to the manager, he preomised to give me another room later on that night. I insisted on visiting the other room... it's full of mildew stains on walls, it stinks of cigarettes. We just took our stuff and left the place. We didn't even stay 1 hour there. The manager was understanding and tried to book us in other Prince hotel... was incidentally was full minutes before.

DO NOT stay there, I don't understand how people can give such high praise... I saw 2 different rooms and though the second room was better, it was still subpar.

Looking for a place to stay in Hanoi and searching for a reasonable with good service is quite difficult. But when i found Prince Hanoi hotel i stayed for a week Im very satistfied with their service + the room is so clean, with PC + Internet included in the package. Im overwhelmed with all the stuffs who helped/assisted whenever i need something and the Receptionist Hlen (lady) helped me translated to the vendors when i purchased stuffs @ the market. Thanks to the Sales Manager as well (Hien)....

We first stayed at this hotel in Oct 2007 and loved our stay then, so did not hesitate to rebook this time around. The friendly staff, clean rooms and great position in the Old Quarter makes this hotel a must stay in Hanoi. We were able to book all of our activities through the convenience of the front desk. We highly recommend this hotel if you want a clean, value for money old quarter vietnam experience. Our room came equiped with a computer with internet access ideal for our teenage son included in the price. Thank you to all the staff at The Hanoi Prince for making our holiday enjoyable (100%)
