We had a room at the back of the hotel. The room booked said really quite and relaxing, they don't say that you can't have the window open as there is a shaft between the hotel and others resulting in the backpackers hotel transferring noise right up into our room. After checking in when the owner realised we had done...

I stayed at a second floor room which is quite specious and comfortable for my friend and me. The hotel owner is very friendly. Even though our limited time (only one night and one morning) in Hanoi, we easily found the must-try and enjoyed the food because of the hotel owner's recommendation. The most satisfied is the breakfast. You can...

The couple that own the hotel treated us absolutely brilliant, we took the option of them organising a taxi from the airport for us and they met us off the taxi, brought our bags to the room for us and went away over and beyond their duties for us. They showed us where to go around Hanoi for shopping, eating...

We stayed here at the start of our trip through South East Asia. The staff were fantastic, the rooms were very comfortable, everything you would hope would work (air-con, wifi, etc) worked flawlessly. The breakfast was delicious (i had the chicken noodle soup each day - and it was the best i had anywhere on the trip). Basically when i...

We had a great time at Finnegans Hotel. The room was clean, the breakfast was selfmade with lots of love and the owner and staff were so friendly. We booked a 2 days tour to Halong Bay and this was also very good organized. We highly recommend this hotel. Thanks a lot for the great time. Anja & Kia

We stayed 2 nights prior to our tour. Very welcoming, clean, comfortable, great breakfast, we had a little balcony overlooking the hustle and bustle outside. Very central location for the old quarter for markets and restaurants, just walk out the door and there it is. Just be wary of the airport taxis that give you a story that there is...

We had very good time in Hanoi. It started in Finnegans Hotel where we were welcomed by Hanh. She is very friendly and made us feel like at home, she gave us very useful tips regarding places to see or to eat as we only had one day in Hanoi. Then we went for one day trip to Halong Bay...

We arrived in the morning, and paid for a ride at a booth in the airport to the hotel, on hindsight, it was expensive and would been cheaper if we just got a taxi outside the airport. Things got a lot better when we arrived at the hotel. Hahn was at the reception to greet us and we got lovely...

Overall our stay at Finnegans was OK, although I think the rating of this Hotel is much higher than I would excpect it to be.

Place is centralised to tourist attraction area, staffs are friendly and helpful. But, room was not suitable for our liking. The decoration with Vietnam war wallpaper was interesting, but we felt like it made us feel uncomforable. Bathroom was ok, good water, good AC. The mattress was terrible, felt like sleeping on the floor. Breakfast was good.

Dear Mr/Ms Yvonne, There are many room types with different decorations and we have posted our photos very clearly for each room type as we know people have different styles. It was pity that you did not book our nice Honeymoon room for your Honeymoon trip. You should have double check before you booked to avoid problem like this for...

Even more, you will fall in love with our Hanoi’s charming, which is full of color and characteristics in every nook and crannies. It also satisfies your curiosity by just few minute walking to discover famed tourist attractions, such as Hoan Kiem Lake (Lake of Sword Restored), Water Puppet Theatre, Night Market, Opera House, History Museum, One Pillar Pagoda, Temple Of Literature, Art Museum, etc.With the greatest love of ancient Hanoi and passion about hospitability field, I started to open the family hotel in an effort to pursuit my dream. Coming to my hotel, you will be pleased with the cozy and friendly atmosphere created through “like-brother-and-sister” staff; however, professional serving style is definitely maintained. It is proved through ten-year experience in hotel service. Despite lacking of five-star facilities, I always remind myself of putting my heart, soul and great effort to give the most memorable experience for you, even more than five- star service. Being one of my friends, you will be warmly welcomed through my hospitability, trustworthy and caring with all my heart.If Hanoi is your most preferable choice for your trip, Finnegans hotel is your perfect and unforgettable destination for relaxing. ... more   less
