We stayed for 5 nights at the 2 star Green Diamond Hotel in Vietnam. We used this as our base to go and visit the iconic sights around, including the World Heritage Listed Halong Bay, as well as the rice terraces at Sapa.
The hotel is a good cost effective base to have in central Hanoi. If you are planning to stay and explore the city and the surroundings without breaking the bank, then this is a good option to consider.
Below you can see our video review at the hotel.
We were able to get the hotel for around $16USD per night (£10GBP).
We managed to get a good deal through the Green Diamond Hotel Agoda offering – http://www.agoda.com/green-diamond-hotel/hotel/hanoi-vn.html?cid=1721207.
