My brother and I stayed at Golden Spring for over a week, and I would recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone.
The rooms are of great quality given the price you pay. In addition to all the flawless fundamentals one would expect from a hotel room, there is also a television and air conditioner in the room; Hanoi can get quite hot and humid, so it was definitely a plus. The rooms are cleaned and resupplied daily with enough precision to restore them to their original state, and not a single item was stolen by the cleaners for the entire duration of our stay (a phenomenon many travelers fear). Finally, the rooms are surprisingly quiet given the hotel's proximity to a major road.
Where the hotel really shines though, is in its service. The staff seem to be happy to do just about anything to help; if something seems a little unreasonable, it's probably not, so just ask.
All of the receptionists speak well beyond a functionally conversational level of English, and the manager seems to speak almost fluently. Communication is no problem for an English-speaker here; you'll find out quickly yourself because the staff is so damn friendly and sociable. :)
As for the location, there are many great restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs and stores between the hotel and the nearby lake, many of which have English-speaking staff and English menus. There's lots of great stuff within walking distance of the hotel (Ma May street is my personal favourite), but if you need to get somewhere farther away and you're worried about being ripped off by some random taxi guy, the hotel can organise a trustworthy taxi for you.
So in summary, I can't fault Golden Spring. It's awesome, and unless you need diamond chandeliers in your hotel, this is the place to be and you need not look any further.
