Hotel Name: Tung Trang Hotel
Address: 13 Tam Thuong Alley (Between 38-40 Hang Bong Street), Old Quarter, Hanoi, Vietnam
I stayed at the Tung Trang Hotel in Hanoi, Vietnam. I booked online at Agoda for the rate of $13 USD per night. I booked it for its price and location in the Old Quarter. The hotel is in a great location, down an alley off one of the main streets. Usually these sort of places that are down little alleys can be hard to find, but this was easy to find – just keep walking down the alley until you find it.
The hotel opposite an old temple decorated with flags and plumes of incense, and being down the lane the is no traffic noise.
Upon arrival I found out that the standard room that I booked was not available as the previous guest had fallen sick and couldn’t leave. Instead they upgraded me to the next room which would otherwise have been a few dollars more.
My room was a double room with ensuite bathroom. The room was a nice size and the bed was comfortable. Being the Hanoi winter I didn’t need to use the fan in my room.
The bathroom was clean and orderly, with a hot water system that needs to be turned on for each use (about 10 minutes to heat).
The wifi signal was good in my room and I didn’t have any connectivity issues.
There is a breakfast service available which consisted of the usual Vietnam guesthouse favourite of an egg and bread roll breakfast. This with a tea/coffee was 30,000 VND ($1.34 USD).
