I'm giving this 4 stars because the location was great, the staff were so nice that it hurts, the room was nice, the bed was good, the A/C worked well and they had breakfast included in the exceptionally reasonable price of $27 per night. It's definitely a 5 star for $27 but there are things to consider if you are a light sleeper.
I'm am a light sleeper and my problems started when I went to close the windows so I could turn on the A/C and go to bed. That's when I realized that the windows were already closed and they were incredibly thin. I went to bed and tried my hardest to get a decent night's rest with the constant horn blowing outside which is the norm in Hanoi. I could hear noises in and out of the hotel all night and then the REAL noise started at about 5am. First a bird that felt like it was actually on my face it was so loud, then the motorcycle washing station approximately 15 feet from my window, horns, noise, yelling, etc, etc. I've heard that this isn't uncommon in the old quarter of Hanoi, but definitely tough. Bring earplugs if you even think you might need them.
