I was not impressed by the reviews of the main two hotels and decided to try the third, which did not offer Internet bookings. I found the hotel phone number [--] from a Hanoi Travel Agent and made the booking. We flew from Hanoi and were pleasantly surprised to find the hotel opposite the Airport within easy walking distance. However reception spoke no English and we followed an English sign board in the foyer. They charged us 400,000d (US$19) plus US$5 for breakfast for two. The room was basic but clean with plenty of hot water. On balance, the absence of English combined with the 2Km distance from the centre of town (no taxis in this area) and our need for an early morning bus station departure meant we would have been better served by staying at a more central hotel.
