We had a balcony in the junior suite. It is small and we didnt sit on it for very long as we prefer being part of the hustle and bustle. Was nice to see the street below in a morning when it was relatively quiet and see the ladies with their bikes and carrying their goods by the wooden "scales" on their shoulders, ready for the day to sell their flowers and fruit. Great photo opportunities. At night there is beer corner. The place has a buzz about it. We loved it.

"Rooms on the right hand side of the hotel are quieter"
"room near the road side as you have brilliant view of the busy life on the streets. it has triple glazing to cut out noise."
"7th floor and above ensures a room overlooking surrounding rooftops."
"One of the top two floors"
"Higher floors are quieter as it is in the centre of Hanoi."
