I just spent 8 nights at this hotel on a work trip - i do ag development work and travel frequently to Asia and I have learned to lower expectations when it comes to hotels. i have to say that this place exceeded my expectations. My in-country colleague booked this for me and I was a bit worried after reading some of the reviews done by others. I guess the best summary comment I can provide is that I plan on staying here next time- my room was clean, semi-modern bathroom, comfortable bed, but typical Asian hardness, nice duvet, refrigerator in room, okay Internet (cuts out - more late night, walking distance to Old Quarter and places to eat etc., basic fitness room- nice weights, one treadmill, nice breakfast, affordable laundry service and very friendly staff. The bad- the rooms on the front are noisy- even on the 9th floor! (I had 901) and I could hear the traffic, but it seems all of the moderate-priced hotel are noisy in Vietnam, the hot water ran out quickly so short showers and the elevator is slow- I gave up on it lots an walked to 9th floor... I guess all of those negatives are quite common in the hotels I have stayed at in SE Asia, sometimes even in the 4& 5 star international chains. This place is so much better than others in it's same price range though, particularly those right in the heart of the Old Quarter. This is my new Hanoi hotel and I would recommend it but as the other reviewers suggest get a room as high as possible!! On a funny note, there is a local aerobics class run in the park in front of the hotel on some nights quite late- so cute!! One drawback was no pool, but Hanoi is much too cold in the winter for an outside pool anyway!
