Like many others, we stayed here on the first night of a tour and had no choice as it was booked with the tour group.
After reading other bad reviews, we cancelled a request with the tour company to book us in for the night before and we are very glad we stayed somewhere elso on our first night in Vietnam!
As mentioned in other reviews, the bedding was filthy as was the bathroom, the rooms were noisy and the breakfast room doubled as the card/smoking room for the staff (and their friends.)
The location was difficult to find but we actually enjoyed roaming the surrounding streets on our first day before meeting up with our tour group in the evening. It is a full on introduction to the city of Hanoi with activity everywhere but we absolutely loved it!
A couple of funny anecdotes about the hotel...there is no smoking inside and signs as such in the lobby, however the staff sat there and the in the breakfast room all day and night puffing on their ciggies! Guests have to outside though.
Also, my mum had trouble sleeping so decided to step outside for some "fresh" (ie terribly polluted!!!) air in the early hours of the morning. Only problem was, she couldn't get outside! The staff were all sleeping all over the floor in the lobby, and any spare space was taken up with their scooters!. Even if she had found a path to the door, she couldn't get out as the security screen was shut and chained up. God forbid there is ever a fire in this place at night because you would never get out!
On top of all of that, you could hear every door open and close and every set of footsteps echoed through the place, making for a very disturbed sleep and an early start to the day.
There are plenty of great 2 and 3 star hotels in Vietnam, this is not one of them.
