My friends and I took a day tour in Halong bay but opted to do an overnight stay in Halong instead of going back to Hanoi after the tour. What I had in mind for us was to have an accommodation near the coast since we wanted to see Halong bay early in the morning. Ky Moi Hotel gave us just that since it's only a 5-minute walk to the beach. The hotel is actually one of the many basic hotels that line up along Vuon Dao street and our tour guide had to even point which was Ky Moi probably thinking we might go to a different hotel. The design of the buildings is typically Vietnamese that the hotel shares its walls with its neighboring hotels.
Our room was big for the three of us and we got ourselves some entertainment from a cable TV. We had two huge beds but the mattresses seem to be really solid that we were like sleeping on the floor. The bedding also smelled somewhat old that we kept it aside but other than that, it was a room that we could get through for one night. The bathroom was spacious and the hot shower was working pretty well which was useful for Halong's cold fall weather.
I initially booked a Sea View room but in our actual room, all we could see from our veranda was the tall hotel building across the street. We only surmised that it might have been a nice view in the past years before the tall hotel was constructed.
Another issue that we experienced was their advertised wi-fi. The receptionist who looked like the owner or manager didn't know the password and we only contended connecting to outside wi-fi networks. The wi-fi signal inside the room was almost close to zero. Moreover, we had difficulty conversing with him since he didn't speak a lot of English and we even had to write down some things for him to understand. Although, he seemed to be a nice man even calling out to our taxi driver that we were heading to the Bai Chay bus terminal even if we already had started to speed off.
Things that surely make a huge room for improvement were the mattresses and the bedding.
