the old darling hotel was one of the best hotels i stayed at in Vietnam. this being my 2nd trip to hanoi Vietnam i have seen some dodgy hotels for the same price but the old darling was great quality for money.
the rooms were clean and big, including a large balcony, large closed in shower (which is rare to find in Vietnam) and comfy beds. our stay included free internet and free breakfast which they even let me have when i woke up very late one morning. the staff were super friendly and helped us book and amazing 2 days 1 night trip to halong bay which was unforgettable. the staff let you use the spare rooms even when you were not staying there i spoke to some other tourists staying there who arrived at 5am in the morning and they got a spare room to shower and freshen up. now thats service :]
i highly recommend
