For only about $40 per night it was very nice. Received welcome drinks on arrival and accompanied us with all our inquiries. Had free buffet breakfast, which is was very good, every morning. You can have laundry service, massage and pedi/mani at an additional cost. Mani/pedi was great! Right in the heart of the city.

They advertise their Deluxe Rooms as 30 m2, but they are actually only 19 m2. I asked them about giving me a larger room, but they said their larger rooms were already booked, and could not upgrade me even though I could clearly see their larger rooms were still available for sale online. If you book here, subtract about 33... More

The Lobby looks super nice but the bedrooms are old and low quality furniture. The rooms can also be quite load since the windows are not well isolated. Staff is nice but does also not support too much in case you have a problem...

The location of this property is excellent. We were able to walk to all sites we were interested in seeing. We had a family room, which was clean, but quite small. We would have liked to have somewhere to sit that wasn't on our beds. We even would have been happy to have an area in the hotel where we... More

Good value for money. The bed is okay, as is the bathroom. The breakfast is very good- I don't think there is a big choice but we had Pho and it was really tasty. The hotel provided us some information concerning the bus to Mui Ne- though they didn't really seem they were "eager" to help. I think they can... More

The receptionists were rude and grouchy. They conveniently wouldn't understand English unless you had to pay for something. They were very willing to exchange dollars to dong but refused to exchange dong to dollars. The door man and maids were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, breakfasts were decent. Good location.

This place is great. Really central location. Can walk to anywhere. For the price, you really can't fault it. Not saying this is a luxury hotel or anything but for a 3 star hotel and £24/ night (£12 each) which includes free unlimited breakfast with great Vietnamese and western food you can't complain. The staff were all lovely and friendly.... More

The hotel itself is pretty decent, well located, and the rooms, although a bit tight, are quite comfortable. To the exception of one unique young lady at the breakfast lounge who was always smiling and apparently eager to please her guests (I am so sorry I forgot her name, but I hope she will recognize herself), I could not have...
