"Bait & Switch - stay away" Camellia Tip by vumeister1

Camellia, Hanoi: 32 reviews and 1 photos

This is a chain of 3 or 4 hotels with the main one(clearner&newer looking) used as the BAIT. The main hotel clerk took our reservation 2 days before. The reservation was confirmed the day before arrival. ... When we showed up at the hotel the hotel manager had already rented out our room for more $$ and after much discussion... sent us to the other hotels(smaller&not as clean ones) of the chain.
This hotel repeated the same bait&switch BS with my daughter a few days later.

so if you can get a room here by walk in do it.
DON't BOTHER with making RESERVATION with them (unless you willing to pay premium price for it).
