I experienced all of the problems the other reviewers mentioned (taken to the more expensive Thai Binh 2 despite having booked the cheaper 1, pushy staff, etc). The agreed upon price was $12 w/o breakfast and $15 including. However, after the first morning when I was only served coffee for breakfast, I told them no thanks on the breakfast for the remaining two mornings.
The room was ok (what you would expect from a $12/night), but the airconditioning was not so ok. Luckily I have a high tolerance for heat so it didn't bother me too much. There was no water pressure in the shower.
When it came to checkout, I had to fight w the girl who tried to charge me $15 for all three nights. She relented to charging me $13 for the two nights when I didn't eat breakfast. I felt a bit of sympathy for the establishment; afterall, what's $2 to me when it obviously means so much to the Vietnamese? Had I read the previous reviews, I would have fought her for the extra $2 she ripped off me, though.
I am really disappointed w my experience here and also w Rough Guide for recommending this place.
Your money's better spent on honest Vietnamese who work hard for your money! Don't stay here!!!!
P.S. Don't book air or train tkts from them; you can find them much cheaper shopping around. Sinh Cafe down the street offered honest prices for all 3 types of transport (I shopped around and they offered consistent prices to what I was quoted from other travel agencies and Vietnam Airlines).
