I think some of the reviews here are a little harsh. When I arrived in Hanoi I'd booked at another hotel (paid with card) but they told me they were full. I checked out about another 10 hotels/hostels around the church area. They were all quite similar. Little Hanoi is a bit run down but for a massive, private, en-suite room, for 25USD it's as I would expect. Both people on reception here were lovely. Although don't give them your laundry, when it came back it was just as dirty as it went. Certainly had not been washed, just folded nicely into little piles!!!!
