Very cheap mid range place to stay. It has changed name in the past year which surprised us but no problems as the hotel is excellent.
Friendly staff that organised an overnight trip for us to Halong Bay & our overnight train to Hoi An. For the life of me I can't remember the girls name on the front desk but she was so nice and helpful. She also recommended a place for us in Hoi An which turned out to be our favourite hotel in our 8 week trip of SE Asia - we are flash packers :) if you care to note, that hotel was Vinh Hung 2.
We got the top end room which was about $40 a night. It was very clean, great aircon and very big.
The set breakfast was standard, good enough.
It is right in the middle of the old town, so plenty of cheap shops to shop and eat at. You can walk everywhere no worries.
Our only negative comment which doesn't really reflect on Allura, was the trip to Halong Bay. From what we have heard, most of the the tours to Halong Bay are the same: you get on a boat, get forced to march around the various caves and sights in the bay, have to have meals at set times and so on. We paid $110 a night for what seemed like a highly organised, well oiled machine of a tour. We like the more relaxed, do what we want when we want approach. We heard there are tours like that, but they cost more. All I can say is shop around for your Halong Bay tour to make the most of the natural beauty.
Thank you very much for making our time in Hanoi enjoyable!
