I stayed here for 3 nights last week and is located in one corner of the old quarter and, weather permitting, is in walkable distance to everything you would want to see in Hanoi. Although there are not many good restaurants close by. And the restaurants that were recommended by the hotel seemed to be ones that they had connections with and all had terrible reviews. I suggest that you look on TA or a book to find somewhere to eat, don't listen to the concierge! However, the staff were great and they booked tickets to the water puppets for us, no problem.
I stayed in a twin room which was nothing special, the bed was OK but the linen had stains all over it. The room itself was very small and there was no where for my friend and I to put our 2 suitcases. The bathroom itself was also quite small, with the most complicated shower ever. We actually had to get someone to come up and show us how to use it!
We had breakfast there one morning which was OK, but very expensive for what you got as it was USD $14 plus service charge and tax. It had the usual eggs, bread, noodles etc. We also had the room service one night which wasn't very nice, and was also expensive plus the usual service charge and tax.
There was nothing terribly bad about this hotel but paying around USD $100 a night I expected a lot more in terms of the room, food etc. There is nothing to stop me staying there again but I am sure there are better options out there.
