I've read some of the reviews here, and a number of them do not clearly identify WHICH Rose Hotel they are referring to. I've just spent a month at the Rose Hotel at 59 Duong Thanh Street in the Old Quarter. I couldn't have been happier. Their rates were good (and negotiable for a longer stay),the rooms were excellent and the service was as good as I've had in any Western hotel.
To those looking for quiet - this is dowtown Hanoi, for goodness.sake! And also remember that Vietnam is still a 3rd-world country. If you want a Western experience, this isn't the place for you.
But for those who got ripped off by the travel-oriented Rose Hotel (definitely not the one I stayed at), there is no excuse for dishonesty. I know that from time to time I paid a premium for things in Vietnam, but generally this was an odd $1 here or there. Some of these people earn so little that I expected and accepted a little padding here or there, or I did not negotiate particularly hard.

The rooms come with all the amenities you would expect and some you wouldn't such as in room computer with internet access (ADSL) and balconies. They are tastefully furnished, full of light and fresh roses add warmth to the rooms. Local fruit, complimentary breakfast, and helpful service set this hotel apart from the rest.
