Hotel royal 3 Hanoi (formerly called Hanoi Silver Hotel).
We stayed 4 nights. Location is good, in the old quarter. Rooms were small but clean. No safe available in room. Luckily also a heater is available as it was very cold during our stay. The hotel is okay but does not justify the above average ratings from other reviewers, in our opinion. The staff was friendly, if you book your tours with them. To settle the bill they use a funny conversion rate of 1:21000 which is 5% above what other places apply and also charge 3% for credit card. You are better off if you pay in $ in cash. Laundry prices were above average as well. Wifi is free and reliable in the lower floors, not on the higher floors. On the lower floors there is more noise from the lobby.
Be careful when they ask you to join a halong bay cruise with a night stay on a sailboat. There are several options and the cheaper ones are for 45$ pp including transport. Shop around with other tour operators and you will find out that they offer the same for much less.More
