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

We stayed in Royal Villas Halong Hotel for one night while waiting for the Starlight Cruise. Wonderfully decorated hotel with excellent service from the reception through house keeping to room service... Excellent. The room was on the 8th floor with a breath taking view of the bay. The toilet with very good toiletries and well kept. Food in a vast... 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

We stayed in the villa section of Royal Halong and we thought this hotel met our expectation. The room was extremely spacious, with big bathroom as well. 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

Stayed for one night, rooms were lovely and tidy. After checking in we decided to have a look at the casino - very awkward..... the hotel displayed posters of call girl hotlines and seemed to cater more for "men" All in all if that dosnt bother you it was a great room and breaky was a all you can eat...

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

We stayed with Royal Hotel Halong for 1 night. Luckily we checked in late evening and only stayed for 1 night. At check-in, there is no greeting, the receptionist just talked to our guide. No acknowledgement of our presence at all and they kept our passports. Felt like communism in the treatment overall. A musty smell lingered in the lobby.... More
