We had a good experience at Violet Hotel and found our double room with A/C great value even though it was on the top floor up loads of steep narrow steps but it was a lovely old building. We found the staff the be very focused on booking trips etc but a simple "no thank you" worked fine and we...

We stayed here one night as there was absolutely no where else. The staff were helpful and the room was basic enough to cover our needs. The bathroom is small with the shower pretty much over the toilet. The sleep was quite restless as one mattress was thick and comfortable and the others were quite hard. The pillows bar one...

Hotel staff were unpleasant and rude. They were upset that we didn't buy tour and bus ticket from them and they were still asking in not polite way where are we going and why we didn't buy tour and ticket in hotel. Room was't nice and look difrerent than on photos in front desk.

The worst hotel in the whole of vietnam. Extortionately priced bus, taxi etc and dishonest staff. They promised us a bed before our bus and we arrived and were expected to sleep on the floor of the lobby. We did so and a man then turned off the air con because it was too expensive to be used for us....

We arrived at Violet Hotel after taking the nightbus from Hue to Hanoi. We were brought there by a taxi driver and - exhausted, tired and happy to take their offer of a free shower - made the mistake of booking a tour to Halong Bay with them. The tour was amazing and well-organized, but the price turned out to...

I am extremely unhappy with the services provided by violet hotel. They get you when you come off the night bus into Hanoi. Being exhausted and overwhelmed they convinced us to pay 650000 dong to go to cat ba island in ha long bay a trip that should cost 200000 ish. We also spent two nights at this hotel. I...

We booked a room for $15US, and we're told later in the day that only a $20US room was available. We argued and were given a very small (though it was clean) double room for 15. They told us breakfast was included then tried to say we had to pay for it. After arguing once again, we had it included...
