Viet Anh Hotel
Viet Anh Hotel is located at Ma May Street inside the Old Quarter. The room is quite clean and good for backpackers.
Computers and ADSL internet access is free from the hotel lobby, so you don't need to bring your laptop and look for internet access.
However please don't hope too much with the quality of service.
The price is quite reasonable, around 24USD for standard double room
Lonely Planet's Fav Viet Anh Hotel
We didn't actually stay here, but my dissatisfaction with Phan Thai led us to check out the other hotels in the vicinity. Read about Viet Anh in the lonely planet and decided to check it out. The friendly staff agreed to let us have a look at their deluxe room and we found it much better than the ones at Phan Thai. While the room was smaller, the wooden decor made the room look a little more luxurious. It helped too that this hotel is relatively new, so the room looked in good condition. With rooms going at US$18 per night, we will definitely consider staying here next time around. Note however that you should book ahead to avoid disappointment, the hotel was packed in the time that we were there.
Directions: Old quarter
Great cheap Hanoi Hotel
Rates as a 2 star Hotel, but is probably closer to a 3 star.Very good clean air-con rooms (try to get one ending with "1", those are the ones that have 2 windows instead of one). and a very friendly staff. Very conviniently located in the midst of Hanoi old quarter.
Our room was just 11 bucks per night a double, so dont pay more than that.
Skip the free 10 minute Internet connection as it is a waste of time, just too slow and probably aimed at charging you for any additional minutes above the free 10. Go to an Internet Cafe instead.
Unique Quality: Firendly staff.
