Hi all - anyone have an idea how long it takes to obtain a visa for Vietnam in Bangkok, and how to go about doing it? Also - am looking for recommendations for inexpensive but clean and friendly places to stay in Hanoi. Is it suggested to make reservations beforehand or is it easy to find accommodations on arrival?

You can get the details from the horse's mouth at the Vietnam Embassy website.
Regarding if to book ahead or not, it depends on when you're going and what time you're arriving in Hanoi, but in most cases you'll do fine just finding something upon arrival.

I went to the Vietnamese embassy in Bangkok (easy to find just look at a map). I went at about 10am and had my visa by 4pm the same day.
The downside to this is that they charged 3000 baht! But it was still very convenient.
I am staying at the Pacific Prince in the Old Quarter. It is $20 a night and very clean. The maids do a great job cleaning the rooms. You could probably get something a little cheaper, but I arrived at about 9pm with nothing lined up. There is a Pacific group kiosk in Hanoi airport outside of baggage claim.
My only complaint is that it is very loud from 8am until about 11pm because the Vietnamese love beeping their horns! But I suppose anywhere in Old Quarter is going to be loud.
