    The hotel was in a great location ... that's the only good thing I can say about this place! The guy who runs this place (and his family run 6 other hotels in Hanoi) is dishonest! He tried to rip me off on several occasions. The first time was when I went to pay he tried to overcharge me. Then...

    In retrospect, staying here was almost worth it for the sheer absurdity of what happened the next morning.

    I had a very positive experience at this hotel. I made a reservation at Central Stars Hotel, but when I arrived in Hanoi they moved me to Old Darling. Initially, I was worried about where I was being sent, but once I met the family the next morning I was pleasantly surprised. Although their business card advertises rooms from $6-10,...
