Stayed here for two nights. We were initially booked in at the sister establishment Hanoi Old Centre Hotel, but our travel companion screwed up his booking (his fault, not theirs) so they offered to put us all up here instead.
The staff were quite pleasant and helpful. As compensation for the misunderstandings on check-in, they paid for the taxi ride between the hotels and put us in a deluxe suite. Also, they were able to arrange tickets to the water puppet show for us.
We've heard stories from local guides that some hotels in Hanoi get a bit annoyed if you don't book your Ha Long Bay tours through them (to the extent that people have been kicked out in the middle of the night) but that wasn't a problem here. They actually confirmed our bookings with the tour company we went with and held our luggage while we were in the Bay.
The room was quite spacious with a very comfortable bed and all the usual features - TV, wifi, airconditioning. The bathroom was probably the nicest we had in all of Vietnam, and wouldn't have looked too far out of place in a 4- or even 5-star hotel anywhere in the world.
Location-wise, the hotel is in a small-ish street in the Old Quarter of Hanoi. There are numerous restaurants and street food vendors within easy walking distance, and the sights are easy to get to. The Ho Chi Minh Museum and Mausoleum are about a 30-35 minutes' walk.
