I was booked into a lovely Hostel in the old quarter and when my taxi from th airport pulled up outside in the pouring rain , this guy got in the taxi being really apologetic saying that it was full and he would take me to his 'other' site, which was Hanoi Eden Plaza. When he got in the taxi he was already trying to convince me to book a tour. He showed me my room, I argued that I had booked a dorm, but in the end I just agreed to pay the 15 dolars for the room as I was tired and didn't know the city that well. When I asked him about the different name, he said it was under the same company. He gave me prices for the Halong Bay tour, I went out in the city to find other travel agencies but couldn't find any as they guy directed me in the wrong place and I didn't have a guide book at this point. I just agreed to pay the price which I later found out was too much.
I realised I was scammed on my way to Halong Bay the next day. When I went to confront the guy he got agressive and kept pushing me. DO NOT STAY HERE, they do not deserve to have a company.
