This hotel is very beautifully appointed and reminds me of a classic hotel from the 1930's, there are bell boys in traditional uniforms and the overall decoration of the lobby is great. The rooms are large and well appointed with an extremely comfortable bed, we had the sea view room which on a clear day would offer a stunning view... More

The hotel is good, the location is not far from the beach bars (go out, turn left and walk 15 mins), the breakfast is fantastic and the pool enjoyable. BUT if you plan to book the visit to the bay at reception please note that the harbour is literarly 5 minutes by feet once you leave the hotel and turn... More

The staff at the hotel were very friendly and informative the rooms are spacious and the views from the room on a high floor were amazing. Halong bay itself was a disappointment there is nothing to do in the town itself and over the bridge in their city there's even less to do... There is only so many mountains in... More

It is more of a Villa and the restaurant was fine to dine. The rooms were spacious, we never expected such a quality food, and I was inspired. The only thing which I did not like being a woman is that they casino was displaying more photos of call girls and it seemed to me as if they were inviting... More

It was clean and everything works well inside the room including the internet connection. The breakfast food was pretty good with nice selections of vietnamese and international breakfast. The location of the hotel... More

The hotel facilities are very good. The pool was wonderful to cool off. Lovely view overlooking the bay of Ha long. The rooms were very clean and cleaning staff and restaurant staff were very nice and friendly. The breakfast buffet included in the room was very nice and good variety of western and Asian cuisine. The spa looked nice
