The hotel is situated conveniently and blended with the local homes. We are just opposite a great coffe joint . You can get to see the Vietnamese people daily life and also to try their local food.
Of course, not forgetting those street vendors who sell drinks with low stools. My kids and I love to sit there and just watch people passing by. I have a printed version of English - Vietnamese paper with me and I did a crash course of Vietnamese with the street vendors. The room was good with a view (not to the city) but to the other apartments. The only regret was that there was NO lift as I was staying on the 5th floor which my kids loved climbing the spiral stairs. Each day we will walk up and down 3x and that's is surely a good way to lose weight.
I joined their 5-in-1 day tour and I expected to be a group tour and it turned out to be our family of four only. Neverthless, we have great fun. Weather was good and a fair amount of walking is required in the ancient village.
We were killing time on our last day and we walked into a SPA which I did my shoulder and back massage, and my wife and daughter did manicure and pedicure while my son played with computer game. Staff were friendly and always asked you about your day and trip etc. I did not joined their Halong Bay trip but went for the agency which was 6 units down the hotel. Please remember to ask for boat registration and insurance as you could have a peace of mind especially if you are travelling with kids.
