We booked here based on the Tripadvisor reviews and although it was by no means bad, we were a bit confused as to where all the excellent reviews came from.
After checking in, our room was very large but in need of a makeover, very run down and rustic. But clean at least. The stairwell smelt pretty bad on the way up too, noise from the street was pretty bad.
Location wise, it's only a 10 minute walk to the lake and backpacker street (Cathedral) but its a 10 minute walk along a very busy street with no footpaths. Not exactly pleasant, made worse by it raining when we were there! We moved after one night for this reason.
However the staff were very friendly, and we booked our Ha Long Bay tour through them with 4 others and it was excellent and good slur for money from speaking to others on the same trip also.
