Stayed at this hotel on both ends of a tour of Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. The location is wonderful in the old quarter and yes it is noisy but you are in a Hanoi, so hopefully peaceful and quiet is not in your plans. The room is an adequate size. The breakfast is also nothing fancy but filling with plenty of hot tea, coffee and juices. The staff amazingly friendly and helpful. We had a late flight out, so when we checked out, baggage storage was offered and a hot shower in a free room when we returned to freshen up before our flight.
I think previous poor ratings are mistaking a 5 star review with a five star rating. In North American terms this is likely a 2.5 star hotel but for the price and location truly worthy of five stars on trip advisor. The Ritz, it is not but a great stay option in Hanoi.
They also had the best WIFI of anywhere we stayed in our three week trip.
