Travel Blogs from Hanoi
This morning was our last time in Vietnam. We out for lunch, and then said our goodbyes to the group leaving us, as the remaining few of us went to the airport for an hours flight to Laos. Upon arrival we went to or hotel and then went out for food, and had a fairly early night. Day 2 - We had an early morning start, where we hired a tuk tuk and …
... off. Shortly after I got dropped off at Vinh I got an overnight bus to Han Oi which got me there in the early morning the following day. I checked in Han Oi backpackers which I have been told by everyone I met so far to stay here. Shortly after checking in and talking to my dorm friends I headed out on city walk tour by myself to explore the area. At reception they gave me a map and all I had to do was follow the green line around until you get back to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Win Hotel Hanoi
Great Value For Money
My husband & I stayed here in March on 3 different occassions.
We went for a superior room which had plenty of space.
The room was clean & the beds were comfortable.
The best thing we found about this hotel was the helpfulness & friendliness of the staff. They speak good English & were happy to book our train tickets (at the same price as the local travel agents) & our next hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
The hotel is in a great location on Coffee Street in The Old Quarter.
For $30 per night, this hotel is excellent value.
I would definetely stay here again & recommend it.
Great Value for Money + Great Location + Helpful Staff
Win hotel is in a great location. You can walk to alot of neat cafes, restaurants and shops. For the rates they offer, they're a great value for money. The staff makes a huge difference. They're *extremely* helpful and offer good tips about where to eat, where to go, etc. The rooms are bare and clean and contain the essentials for a good night sleep.
Win Hotel a Winner
My wife and I stayed at Win Hotel for 5 nights and found the hotel and rooms extremely clean and functional.Bathroom was a little tired but again spotlessly clean and well serviced.Courteous staff who were eager to please and always greeted with a big smile.Room on 3rd floor had large balcony and huge windows and curtains.The view was not fantastic and as it is on a busy cafe street, a little noisy.great breakfast with fresh orange juice.Room cost was us$30.00. Will definitely be back !
Terrific accomodation at the Win Hotel
We stayed 4 nights at the Win Hotel in Jan. this year. We are a family of four and booked two rooms. The hotel was a great place to stay - clean and in an excellent location. It had a great character and was very comfortable, with friendly and helful staff. We certainly recommend this hotel for families.
Excellent Location, Value
After two nights at the much more expensive and much more opulent Metropole, we decided to seriously downshift our accomodations to save money.
Arriving at the Win after the luxe of the Metropole was quite a shock, but we learned to love this affordable little gem for the friendliness of the front desk staff and the superb location on a busy little side street in the heart of Hanoi's bustling Old Quarter.
Our room was a 5th floor walk-up and had chilly tile floors and very firm mattresses. But, like all reports here on T.A., the room and the entire hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms have a few creature comforts (AC, satellite TV, minibar) to make it a perfectly good spot to rest after a hard day touring.
And, at around $30/night for a large room with a balcony, the price is right.
Decent Choice in Hanoi
I booked this hotel after reading some of the reviews here on TripAdvisor. The hotel staff is indeed very friendly and helpful (though we had one incident where we could have been better served), and the location is quite good. However, I didn't find the place particularly charming, and while clean, it seemed a tad tired. Could use some sprucing up. Though for $30 USD/night, I can't complain really. Maybe there are nicer places in Hanoi that I'd seek out next time, but you can't go wrong staying here. They accept credit cards. The email for booking is firstname.lastname@example.org
Great & Helpful Staff
Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Staff were incredibly helpful, advising on the "right price" to pay for services/transport etc. Location is superb and handy to so many attractions.
Favorite hotel in Vietnam
The Win is definitely not the fanciest or "best" hotel, but it was my favorite place to stay in an almost three week trip to Vietnam. The staff is wonderful, and begun to feel like good friends. They always asked about my day, remembering what I said I was going to do that day, or where I planned to eat. They couldn't have been lovlier or more accomodatiing.
The room was comfortable enough, a hard bed, a TV with satellite, a mini-bar, etc. The bathrooms were pretty basic, but everything else was so great, it didn't seem to matter. Plus the a/c worked really well, and it was spotless.
The location can't be beat. I cannot wait to get back to Hanoi, and actually look forward to staying at the Win again!
Win Hotel wins for its friendly staff and location in the old quarter surrounded by charming cafes and restaurants (specially recommend Gecko's and Pinky Moon). This can mean noise: builders worked on a nearby shop till the early hours one night, but normally streetlife quietens down around 10 pm. The double rooms facing the street are large, with balconies, and all the mod cons you'd normally get in a much more expensive hotel. Two drawbacks: the mattresses are super hard, and you get blasted in the early hours by the loudspeakers around Hoan Kiem Lake. In November 03, we paid US$30 for a double room, which included breakfast, but should perhaps have negotiated a discount because it was on an upper floor.
Friendly staff and great location
This hotel is located on the lively 'cafe street', which has some great little restaurants (most notably Cafe des Arts) and is about 500m form Hoan Kiem lake and is also near Hanoi's famous puppet theatre. The first room I stayed in was US$25 (the most expensive) and was massive with a balcony overlooking the street. Unfortunately the roof leaked the first time it rained ! But the staff were very friendly and helpful in booking tours. Rooms have satellite TV with about 20 channels and breakfast can be provided at a small cost (about US$1.50 for pho or rice and coffee)
