We stopped at this shop because we saw among services laundry service. We paid for wash and iron 50k a kilo. But as we came back at our hotel and unpacked the bag, it hasn't been ironed. Check your laundry before you leave!

... otherwise you're likely to get the plague. We were another group that checked in, looked at the room and then promptly checked out. The bed consisted of one thin foam mattress on top of a soiled spring mattress. We were on the top floor. The windows did not close and there was a large open water tank outside one... More

The hotel itself is in a great location right in the midst of the old city, not to mention one of the cheapest around. We stayed in a fan room at first but it was so hot we had to take showers in the middle of the night to cool down. Upgrade to an air con room and all your... More

This is one to miss. The room was a tiny unbarably hot box with no window, shared bathroom down the hall hadn't been cleaned and the guy on reception didn't care at all. Its cheap and we had only one night there but I wouldn't bother!

The room I had looked like walking into a derelict house. Badly lit, grimy, no window but a two door effort (which didn't close properly) which opened onto a tiny scruffy balcony, "bathroom" not enough room to swing a cat (cleanish, but rundown) ... TV didn't work properly, air-con knackered, people could look into the room, etc. Saw one room... More

I travel to Hanoi and had booked one room at Alibaba Hotel. A simple hotel, but very convenient and comfortable. The hotel is easily accessible from the famous attractions of Hanoi, such as: Hoan Kiem Lake, the night market, and some famous eating places in the Hanoi Old Quarter Hotel rooms are clean, staff are friendly and helpful.

Staying this hotel at the top floor for four night. Amazing view and a quite charming room. Was a bit cold, but nothing a blanket couldn't handle. The hot water in shower had small interruptions.

I have booked two nights at this hotel via booking.com on the day of my travel to Hanoi. After a long bus journey from Sapa, I turned up at the hotel and just to be told that they were fully booked and I had a go and find somewhere else to stay at 10.30 pm. The receptionist were so rude.... More
