My wife Brenda and I are from Bunbury, Western Australia and have just returned from a fabulous 2 week trip to North Vietnam thanks mainly to Sunshine 1 hotel manager Mr Manh Hung who had arranged a full itinerary for us via email, prior to our arrival in Hanoi. He was recommended to us by a friend of mine and...

Our first night in Vietnam, didn't bargain, should have done that. Paid $30 for the first night, $25 for the second. Really nice breakfast in hotel just next door. Bathroom was old, but clean. We got 2 complimentary bottles of water a day and fruit.

I stayed for 2 nights. rooms was large, clean, felt safe, location perfect. I would recommend this place if you are not looking for luxury but location with friendly staff. Breakfast is just ordinary but the breakfast room is not with any ambience so just go sit somewhere at a street cafe to take in the scenes. airport pickup all...

Moved to this place from the Sunshine Palace a few doors down. Had a look at the room before checking in and all was ok. Returned in the evening to find there was a problem with the hot water i.e. there wasn't any. Not even enough to have a shower let alone a bath. After complaining, they denied there was...

If you are looking for a mid-range hotel, in the very lively Old Quarter of Hanoi, I think Sunshine 1 Hotel is a good choice. I was there in the winter, with record-breaking colds, so the windows were closed at all times, and the heating system was efficient. If you want less noise from the street, try the rooms in...

We stayed at the Sunshine Hotel for a few days while checking out Nothern Vietnam. The personnel was very helpful when we were off for a few days to Sa Pa and Ha Long Bay and were willing to keep our (very spacious) room available for us. Great service! Only downside was the somewhat noisy environment, but I guess that...

We found our room to be very clean and extra large in size. The position is great. Staff at the front desk were always helpful and friendly. The only downside of this hotel is the breakfast which is served at one of the other Sunshine hotels just 20 meters or so down the road. It really was the worst we...

“I prefer to be a couple floors up and in the rear of the building because the Vietnamese tend to be quite loud in the mornings (not this hotel staff specifically, but in general).”

“Ask for a room not looking down Ma May to avoid to much noise at night, and also ask for the computer tower when you check in.”
