We booked a 4 night stay as the start of a 6 mth journey through S-E Asia. The hotel is located right in the Hanoi Old Quarter. At first is looks hectic, loud and smelly but don't worry you learn to appreciate and even love this part of town. We spent most of our time just sitting on a little stool outside of a pub, sipping beer or coffee, looking at the variety of people passing by or having interesting chats with strangers.
About the hotel: when we arrived they upgraded our room, free of charge for the first night, just because it was available. We had some problems with the shower and the safe but they immediately fixed it after we mentioned it. The staff is very (for some maybe overly) friendly abd helpfull. It's not the chapest place around but the location and the staff surely make up for that.
