Decent little hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 30, 2006

Located along quite a busy street within 10 minutes to the entertaiment & shopping area around the Old quaters. There are about 70 rooms in the French colonial building. My room is averagely small especially the toilet but it's confortable and clean. But hey what do you expect when you are on a tight budget.

Thien Thai Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Thien Thai Hotel is a nice 3-star French boutique type hotel near the Old Quarter and near Truc Bach Lake. The rooms are nice and pleasant with cold airconditioning (a must in the summer months!) , cable tv and a mini-bar.

On the first night, our bathroom had a funky smell so we dialled reception. They sent someone up and after about 10 mins of charades, they figured out what we were trying to say, turned something on (im guessing an exhaust fan?) near the sink and voila, smell was gone for good!

A few things I didn't like about the place:

1. They didn't provide thicker blankets, just a thin white sheet so we had to use the bed covers.
2. The towels are miserably thin and frayed.

Poor security.

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)

I requested for the taxi service offered by the hotel. They charged me USD 10 for this service. It was a huge and comfortable taxi.

There is hot water, air condition and has a window that allow you to view the main road.

It is very noisy in the morning and my sleep was disturbed by the constant honking of the motorbikes. I think it could be due to the fact the hotel is located on a busy street.

I am very uncomfortable with the fact that the hotel staff requested to keep our passports. What if they forge our passports? On the second night, my travel partner and I wanted to check out as we wanted to book a tour from elsewhere. The part time staff did not even know where our passports were kept! We were unable to check out due to this fact and had to delay our tour till the next morning. Our plans were affected. This is really horrible.

Unique Quality: Very traditional chinese influenced furniture.

A small and cozy hotel, with nice rooms. It was included in our Sinh Cafe tour, a good option, and well situated.

This was a case of not doing what I had planned and what you should not do in general; we went with a tout at the airport. In fact, the tout was at the airport in Vientiane, Laos! But the offer was good as was the price for the room. They gave us a ride into Hanoi from the airport for $2 and the room was only $9 a night for a double. This seemed expensive compared to what we had been paying in Laos but it was Hanoi and TET (Vietnamese New Year cum Christmas) was approaching.

Unique Quality: The room itself was quite nice and the location was excellent but what we did not like was the staff being overly pushy to sell us tours. It was explained to us that the room cost was very low and that to make money, they had to sell tours. It didn’t seem like a good way to do business to me but we found out it was a typical Vietnamese way to do it! At any rate, we wound up buying a tour of Halong Bay from them as we did not want to cause any animosity. It turned out to be decent value but we opted to change hotels when we came back into town from the trip just the same.

Directions: Cha Ca is right in the Old Quarter and up the street from Ch Ca Va long, the fish restaurant that is an institution in Hanoi.
