This hotel is next door to it's sister Hotel (the suites) in the old town of Hanoi - so you are right in the action! The people of Hanoi are early risers and early to bed, so whilst the street is quite busy (this is Hang Quat; which is fan street - each street in the district is named after the goods it sells) it is quiet by 8.00pm each night.
If you want craziness and action after 8.00pm, you don't have to go far as this location is within easy reach of the night markets and main tourist sites (you can walk to the lake and park in 5 minutes or so) and plenty of restaurants.
The staff are super friendly here and ready to help with whatever you need - even supplying a refreshing welcome drink on arrival, they were exceptionally helpful with information on surrounding Hanoi and shopping.
Our room was clean and comfortable, but it didn't have an outside window, which made it feel rather underground; but we were hardly there so this wasn't a problem.
Any of the services we used at the hotel were all reasonably priced (laundry, minibar, taxis etc.) and there was complimentary water and fruit in the room. There is also a safe in each room, so you can leave your valuables while exploring the city.
There is no bar in the hotel; they do serve breakfast however - a selection of fruit and then eggs, yoghurt and some other basics. There is an excellent bar on this street (Green Mango), for food and drinks later in the day.
