We really enjoyed our stay at phan lan. All the staffs are really kind and accommodating. What I really love about this hotel is their internet connection, so fast you can watch live stream. I will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and if ever I will go back to VIETNAM, I would stay on this hotel again.

Good place

Good hotel in the pack packer district, close to everything. The security box isn't actually located in the room though, it is in reception. The breakfast consisted of a baguette and omelette with drinks. One downside is we had to climb 4 flights of stairs for our room, but the lovely staff more than made up for it. They went out of their way to help me when I got sick, and my friend really enjoyed the tour she booked out of it (not overpriced).

I really enjoyed my stay here. Nice, clean room. It didn't have a window though. The staff here is great as well. Wifi works throughout the hotel. Breakfast is basic, but good. I would stay again.

Basic, no frills room. Aircon, water heater, locks and general furniture are in working condition. We had a broken rack but that was quickly fixed during the daily tidying up of our room. However, ventilation seems poor and there is a little musty smell. Will recommend a dehumidifier or refreshener spray in the room.

Great place to stay. The staff are warm, friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Excellent location in a quiet alley in the backpacker area. Short walk from where the major open-tour buses drop off passengers.

We stayed in Phan Lan 2 for 3 nights and had a great time whilst staying in the hostel which is fantastically located in the heart of the backpacker region of the city. The staff were extremely accommodating, friendly and pleasant and the rooms were clean. The only issue we had was the electricity cutting out for several hours due to the weather as well as noise from next doors work although this was quickly addressed.

A very nice hotel in a very good location. Just a short walk from all the main sights and good places to eat. It has a real family feel to it and the owner is very goo at English. She also helped give us some dollars for our Cambodian visa which helped so much. The breakfast is light but very good! Definitely recommend this place!

This budget hotel is an absolute winner - clean, quiet, comfortable, and the staff are WONDERFUL. So very helpful indeed with any request, big or small. They go out of their way to make their guests' stay as pleasant and hassle-free as possible. The breakfast was really good, and the room was spacious and extremely relaxing. Give this place your business - they deserve it!

So close to the action around the markets and Backpackers sites, the easiest and pleasant stroll to the central city and the rooms were so quiet a fantastic nights sleep was available. One of the best!
