We stayed in HM boutique in old quarter. 2 minutes walk to the Ho Kiem lake, water puppet theatre and lots of other activities and cafes. Very conviently located and an experience by itself. Booking done by Nancy from Go Asia for us.

Filthy place. Lots of crooks trying to con tourists. Very dangerous due to no code of conduct on highways. Not a place for elderly or young or for those who value their life. Would NEVER visit this part of Vietnam again.

Hanoi you can have. The Old Quarter is a different story. We stayed at an amazing Hotel on a busy street, day and night with scooters, tri-shaws and noise from the constant horns of the vehicles jostling for position. This is the Old Quarter. Lots...More
