I was moved from the hotel I originally booked and was given a large room which was a very good value for money for 15USD.
The staff was friendly but you can tell that they are hunting for the clients to get on tours so since I was on the end of my trip they weren't that interested and barely said hello to me.
The breakfast was ok but not the best but hey you can't expect much for the Price. It is very well located at the heart of the old quarter and in an alley so it is pretty quiet.
All in all it is a great base for exploring the city or coming back from tours in Ha Long Bay or Sapa but it was the most impersonal I visited in Vietnam.
