    Just rock up to the OQ by mid morning & ask.

    Some will be nearly full & seek a high price. Others near empty and willing to bargain down.

    When an option is within your budget, go and look at the room.

    Sometimes it's best to view several 'hotels' in a precinct to get a feel for what US$5 buys (then US10, etc.).

    But ALWAYS be happy when you are bartering - the Vietnamse like a laugh and appreciate good humour.

    If you need advice as to 'hotel' location, LP is one source (though not really up to date. Another source is other tourists in the area.

    Have fun, and look at the other FORUM posts about how one can easily get ripped off in VN.

    What's your definition of budget prices? I recommend the Sunshine Hotels group in Hanoi. I'm staying at their Gia Thinh Hotel in March for $30. They run about 7 or 8 hotels in the Old Quarter.

    Try the city gate hotel in the thanh ha road nearby to the old east gate. Two years ago the room was about 13 USD.
