Hassle-free hotel

The guide books tell you that Hanoi’s hotel staff pester you to buy their tours. Not true of the peaceful place where I stayed, just a couple of streets south of Hoan Kiem Lake. All I saw and heard were smiles and greetings in Vietnamese, with a word or two of French and English here and there – enough to pay the bill and work out that the wifi connection was an off-on affair.
