Do not stay here. I had a $75 shirt stolen from my room. Avoid. The bathroom was falling apart, the proprietor was pretty but two-faced (I speak a little Viet). Never ever waste your money here. A mess. I was also overcharged immensely. I paid $310 for 2 day/one night cruise on Ha Long, Ha Noi city tour and one night in the 'hotel'. When I returned to get my bags to fly to HCM city they had been taken out of my room. Only when I arrived in District 1 HCM did I realise that my brand new shirt had been stolen (I left it hanging in the room to dry). Also while I was there two English girls came to collect 2 soft sleeper train tickets that had been arranged with one of Huong's colleagues. Guess what?? They were HARD sleeper tickets, yet the girls were not offered a refund. This is one of the most common scams in Viet Nam. This whole operation is a scam. Do not stay here or book any excursions, you WILL BE RIPPED OFF.
