Phoenix Hotel is a nice place to stay as it offers nominally priced accommodation. Additionally it is quite centrally located with easy access to shopping and many attractions.

I stayed last year in Hanoi Golden Plaza - which is a bit more modest than its name suggests, but still good value for $20/night. It is close to Especen Hotel which is highly recommended by Lonely Planet (but offers no breakfast). Both are just a block away from Hanoi Cathedral, and quite close to Hoan Kiem lake.

Beware: take a minibus, not a full-size bus on Hanoi airport, because only the former brings you to the spot indicated by Lonely Planet - which is close to the above hotels.

I took the large bus, did not have a clue where I ended and was and easy prey for a zillion taxi drivers offering their services to me. :( Desperate, I started walking in an arbitrary direction, and soon reached Hoan Kiem lake - the lake in the center of Hanoi. And then I could orientate myself easily. ;)
