Melia is a nice 5* (according to their brochure) hotel in Hanoi. It is reasonably close to the old town - around 6-7 blocks and can definitely be walked. Taxi ride would be around $1.
The rooms are nice and spacious with excellent sheets. Bathroom is modern and clean.
Breakfast buffet is little lacking compared to other 5* hotels in Vietnam, but certainly better than what is typically available in the US.
There seems to be a lot of "official" functions held at the Melia. During my stay, there were a number of receptions for ambassadors, prime ministers, etc. Kind of pain since you have to fight the crowd and go through metal detectors.
