This is a top class hotel with big rooms and all the trimmings you would expect, the staff were excellent. The only problem is at the moment there are major works going on outside which means you cannot get to the place unless you walk a couple of hundred meters. I understand this work will be completed by March 2015.... More

I stayed there in September 2014 with my parents and the facilities was awesome and the location is very close to tourist spots. Easy to get the transport to the other area and it is highly recommended.

Very nice old world hotel. We only booked this the night before we arrived as they were renovating our other hotel and neglected to tell us. The rooms were HUGE and hotel was clean, centrally located, staff friendly, breakfast good. Only negative was the bathrooms were quite small. They were doing major roadworks out the front of the hotel but... More

Large old somewhat pompous hotel in a superb location. Very close to restaurants, shops and walking streets. We took massage in a saloon right accross the street (or square?). It was the best massage i had in Vietnam. The room was spacious, nice and clean.

Very nice place. Good service, nice breakfasts, cosy rooms and comfortable location - all for a very reasonable price. Just step outside of... More

The staff are lovely and welcoming and the lobby has beautiful air conditioning... that was it for me. The hotel is in need of a tidy up, if it wants to hold onto it's 4 star rating. The bathroom floor was always wet, and furniture tired. The worst part was as soon as I arrived I noticed the air con... More

This is the third time we've stayed at the Kim Do. The key advantage is that it is a great central location. The staff are friendly and the rooms while not 5 star are clean and well maintained (except for a small issue with the air conditioner which was quickly resolved). The breakfast has a wide assortment of dishes and... More

Beds = rock hard Chairs = rock hard (it is almost like they kept the box spring and ditched the mattress) I have slept in bus stations that were more comfortable. I do not know who is ranking these locations -- backpackers? but it is a tiny, rock hard, uncomfortable hotel
