I judge a hotel on cleanliness and helpfulness ... the Oriental Central scores full marks for both, and for everything else for that matter!
Because the price was so reasonable, I went for a junior suite. It was on the 7th floor facing the front. You would never have known there was a busy street below, it was a wonderfully silent and cool retreat from a busy day out on the streets (and I mean streets, not pavements) of Hanoi.
I would recommend visiting "the Orchid" restaurant a couple of doors along... grilled fish that you make up into your own rice paper rolls and the grilled aubergine with steamed rice! You can order from the Orchid in your room and I did that once too when just too hot and exhausted to go out again. Helpful if you have the right money, they take payment on delivery.
Can't speak more highly of the Oriental Central. They made my trip to Hanoi run smoothly with their attention to detail and calm courtesy.
