    Unless you have the actual e-mail address of a hotel, it is difficult to book with reliability.

    These on-line booking systems make money by keeping the "deposit" and then sending an e-mail to the hotel advising them of the "reservation". They are often too cheap to ensure confirmation.

    Also, the hotels prefer a customer at reception rather than a promise of a customer who may arrive and will pay less, in any event.

    There is plenty of accommodation of all classes in Hai Phong - the Americans did a good job of "slum clearance" during the American War when they bombed this important industrial centre so most of the hotels are of more modern construction than Ha Noi.

    You should have little difficulty in locating decent digs. Check < http://www.vietnamtourism.com/e_pages/service/hotels-p.asp?d_tinh=8431 > for some hotels.

    I'm in Haiphong with my sister in Phu Vinh hotel, situated in city centre and only 10 mins walking from the main train station Ga Hai Phong. It's a very good budget hotel, but from 6 people that work here, only one speaks a little English. We had to use Google translate to communicate. They are kind and helpful, but you have to tell them to clean your room, bring the toilette paper, change towels (they have only very, very small, you can't use them for the shower - bring your own)...
    Also, there are many restaurants along the street, so you don't have to wonder around looking for a place to eat.
