Anybody travelling to Hanoi this month (around 20th December)?
Recommendations for accomodation (around US$ 100)
Will it be cold there?
Any good shopping places?

Thanks in advance.

please dont get me wrong...just a bit curious...being a travel helper for vietnam (eight years to your credit)...hmmm...we should, instead,be seeking your help on accommodation, shopping in Nam...unless of course Hanoi has eluded you to which case, my apologies...
I have been there twice, and for could get decent ones...

Hi there, I was in Hanoi in September for 4 days. Stayed at the Zephyr Hotel near Hoan Kiem Lake. It's a ten minute saunter to the Old Quarter. But it's slightly pricey, at about US$70 for a double room.

If you don't mind slumming it a bit, I would suggest you picked a hotel in the US$30-45 range. Most of these are right in the centre of the Old Quarter, where all the buzz is. The Old Quarter is a quaint district riddled with tiny winding lanes with hundreds of small shops which sell everything from shoes to clothes to toys and fake watched.

Here's the website where I got my bookings done.

For US$ you can get good deals at the Hanoi Hilton, or if you're lucky, even the Metropole.

Have fun.
