This was a big dissappointment, unfriendly staff, dirty and small rooms. It wat not clean, insects, hair in the bathroom, dirty towels and bed sheets, pushing to sell you tours and you will eat your breakfast in a terrible and dirty kitchen. My advice not to stay, there are enough good alternatives.

My partner and I stayed here last week... Owner is rude, room wasn't very clean,there is better places around for the same price. They try to sell you packages for Halong Bay, and other activities, but you can't trust them. We have bought the Halong Bay tour 1 night 2 days, they showed us an amazing broucher with pictures, of...

The rooms in the hotel are fine and as expected of a budget place in hanoi. The manager seemed very friendly on arrival and agreed a price with us before we took the room. However, upon checking out they demanded a higher fee! Knowing they had your passports they knew they could charge what they liked. For this reason I...

Friendly staff and good bustling location! We were told a certain price for the room but bargained it down a bit. I just read the bad review about room 302!! We were in 302!! Obviously they have cleaned up or renovated because bathroom is great and clean soft beds.

The room are spacious for its price, 15-20 USD per night.. The bathroom is small but quite clean. The staffs are very helpful and friendly. I'm staying here for 2 nights before I leave to Laos tomorrow. I recommend this hotel to who needs a decent room with small budget.

This place is pretty average, but the location is good and so is the price. The reception try to sell you tours, that does get annoying. Strange that this place is known as both Memory Hotel and Funny Hostel? Part of a scam perhaps? I have seen another Memory hotel at a different address in Hanoi, it had proper signage...

The location of the hotel is really quite good. The room was OK for the price. Bed had a decent depression on one side. AC could only be fixed on freezing cold or Off. The shower was not that great. But thats what you get for the price. What really put us off was that the reception tried to overcharge...

We really enjoyed our stay in this clean and well located hotel! A huge window, a fridge, hot water and even a wee table plus chairs for a good price! But WATCH OUT: if they are booked out, they will recommend you a "sister hotel" - don't go there!!! To catch a glimps read the reviews on it. It is...
