I stayed here for a few nights for work and this hotel is relatively close to our office, so for that reason it worked for me. They project themselves as a 3 star hotel, but honestly it is more like 2 stars.
I felt safe enough, there is security in the lobby and there is a good lock on the door. The room was clean and spacious, but some things in there puzzled me, such as some ratty old slippers with big holes in them. Why put those in the room? When I travel in Asia, I have a habit of bringing my own disposable slippers with me (and also a pillowcase), just because some hotels don't provide slippers and in some hotels the pillow cases are dodgy.
The other thing is that they have a water kettle and mugs in the room and a price list of the tea bags and coffee sachets (all very cheap) but..... tea and coffee were not available in the room. And I was too lazy to go downstairs and get it. In fact: there is an extensive price list of the minibar, however, the only thing in the minibar was some water, a coke and a can of beer. None of the other 15 or so items named on the price list were in the fridge. Hence the 2 stars!
The Danly hotel was clean enough, provided the normal quality toilettries and the good thing is that it is quiet, so I slept very well.
The area really has nothing in it and it is a good 20 minutes to downtown (Hoan Kiem Lake/the Old Quarter). So if I hadn't been there for work, I would most definitely not have chosen the hotel.
The restaurant is very mediocre, and the linen in the restaurant is stained. Good enough for a bowl of noodle soup, good enough for a quick breakfast with some eggs, toast and fruit, but don't expect a great breakfast.
The hotel is cheap and functional, and so is the breakfast :-)
The staff is very friendly though and with a bit of effort (and knowledge of the city), you are but a short taxi ride away from very nice restaurants. It is easy for the hotel to get a taxi for you and they will explain to the driver where to take you.
Also there is a relatively nice foot massage place right next door.
