This hotel was selected for us as part of our tour of Vietnam.
Big, yes. A bit ostentatious, yes. But once you have put that to one side the rooms are spacious and spotless. The staff smiley and helpful. Younger members of staff are guided by more experienced ones and this results in a solid and seamless management.
Sadly, the grandeur of the inside is slightly let down by the concrete ugliness that is quite oppressive when outside enjoying the pool area. Hugely overlooked by all the rooms on upper floors and the presence of beautiful yasmin in pots does not take away from the constant reminder this building wants you to be aware of its presence.
Super location on the Perfume River within spitting distance of the Citadel.
If the weather permits it, the Rooftop bar is a must. Great view.
We had dinner in the ground floor restaurant and I would recommend you find a way to tell staff you want to take time over the meal rather than receive the courses in quick succession.
Beautiful smiley people but don't assume the questions will lead to a tantalising conversation. The barrier between languages is noticeable as is the distance between staff and client.
Rooms are beautiful.
