We booked this hotel through bookings.com and was impressed to have an email through almost immediately from the owner, Jimmy, offering to collect us from the airport. We arrived on a late flight and didn't arrive in central Hanoi until about midnight; when we got to the hotel we had to practically break in, as the owner had left his sons, or other young kids, manning reception. They had fallen asleep and when they woke up, they didn't seem too impressed and were hostile and threatening - not a great first impression. Once we settled into our room though, which was clean and comfortable, things were fine. The hotel was central (although most in the old town are) and good value for money, although we stayed in better ones during our time in Vietnam.
