I booked the hotel on a friend's advice, stayed for three weeks, and highly recommend it to anyone for a short or longer stay. If you are a budget traveler, your first choice will probably be one of the backpackers' hostels, but Camellia 6 is absolutely worth the money. The hotel is family-owned, in one of the calmer lanes of the otherwise very busy Old Quarter - close to the fruit and veggie market, soup stalls and coffee places; it is very clean, has a hot shower (yes, the shower is sort of strangely arranged, as other reviews mention, but my experience in other parts of Vietnam is no different from this one), wi-fi (there was one day when it was on and off, but otherwise without problems in three weeks), and has a menu to chose from for breakfast. Also the staff is very friendly. But really what makes the hotel a invaluable choice are the owners - they are incredibly flexible with tourists like me who do not have entirely fixed plans, give great advice, help book tours and open-ticket buses, keep backpacks while customers are traveling to Halong Bay or Sapa, etc. In addition to that, I needed to call a professor and some interviewees to meet, and they very kindly did the first call for me. Really a great place to stay!
(The one fewer star for sleep quality is for those of frail sleep: the noise of the Old Quarter - which you cannot avoid in Hanoi no matter where you are, however - plus some of the ACs noise. Those with good sleep can ignore this.)
