WE booked a few nights here at the end of an intrepid trip through Vietnam, figuring we would be in need of a couple of nights that were comfortable, and with a pool (hard to find a pool in Hanoi). We stayed the previous night in a simple hotel in the old Quarter, $55 a night, so it was a big jump in price to the Hilton. We had a room with 2 single beds, and an extra single bed thrown in, so needless to say there was not a lot of space. We found the location was far from wherever we wanted to be, I guess being smack in the Old Quarter was really convenient for wandering and finding restaurants etc, and also good for being among local people.
To our disappointment, the pool was heated - really warm so not refreshing on the days where the temp in Hanoi was close to 45 degrees, so we did not swim, Not sure why on earth they heat the pool in summer!!! The breakfast was $20US each, so we wandered down to the lake and had a big breakfast each day for a fraction of that. I have stayed in a few Hilton hotels over the years, and have to say that this was a very average experience, and had we known, we would have stayed in our hotel in the Old Quarter.
