The road condition in Hanoi is dramatically crowded due to thousands of bicycles, motorbikes along the way. Thus, taxi, cyclo and car with Vietnamese driver are the best way to travel around Hanoi. There are reliable taxi companies operating within the city and they are all metered including Airport Taxis, Hanoi Taxi and Mai Linh Taxi. Cyclos often wait outside hotels and restaurants and a fare should be negotiated to your destination before setting off. If you are confident on a motorbike, it is possible to rent them from shops around the Old Quarter. You will need an international driving permit and a helmet. But it is recommended to be slowly and watch out when you are out of the street.
