The hotel lived up to all the good reviews. Huge well-appointed rooms, WIFI on every floor in case you don't use the notebook + internet connection provided free-of-charge (!), TV with western channels like BBC, DW... hot showers with sufficient pressure etc We appreciated the free tea + coffee (yummy Vietnamese coffee not yucky Nescafe) available round-the-clock downstairs.
Most of all, the entire staff were quite magnificent. The manager Ms Anh is a star -- answering every request with quiet efficiency and a smile. Her staff are obviously well-trained: everyone from Housekeeping to the Front Office Assistants to the Bell Captain could liaise in operational English, and they bent over backwards to please. OK maybe the young cook could smile a little + look less grumpy. Otherwise we were made to feel incredibly welcome.
Other reviews had mentioned Ms Anh in glowing terms. We now realise that the entire team is what makes this little hotel one of the best deals in Hanoi.
We were a bit concerned about the train -- other travellers had mentioned the horn. But it was not a problem at all. Perhaps we were too tired?
