Stayed here just 1 night, would have liked to stay longer, but was full for the fireworks competition. Will write a full an honest review, and on reflection, to do this, seems it might give a negative impression to some, but have rated it 'very good' as, random problems aside, that was the overall rating I feel happy giving.
First impressions - very modern, clean and welcoming hotel (we had stayed at the Mango Hotel the night before to be close to the beach, and although that was fine, it was a welcome relief walking in here as seemed so much newer and of a higher standard).
Pros - really modern, new, solid, quiet, great view and really comfortable bed
Cons - Weird, as although really clean, well sealed, and high up, had a bit of a cockroach encounter when returning for a shower. Went straight downstairs and managed to communicate it to the concierge man, who came straight up armed with his spray and removed them for me. I personally see these pesky creatures as a not so pleasant part of travelling in Asia, so not sure you can blame a particular place for them being there.
Pros - were really welcoming and friendly, the concierge guys were so lovely and helpful (see above).
Cons - must say that one of the reasons we chose this place was the previous reviews of the English-speaking staff, as we had quite a few things to sort out i.e posting parcels, train tickets etc - and although they were lovely and certainly tried their best, we did not encounter any staff who spoke good English and so it was really difficult to get any of this stuff sorted, we ended up sorting it all ourselves (all part of the adventure but not the relaxing time we envisioned).
Food & Drink:
Dinner - heard about the German restaurant, and after a long days walking, decided to stay at the hotel and try it - Lovely welcoming young german couple, cold beers, good wine and view from the rooftop is fantastic - had the place to ourselves, very romantic. We both enjoyed the food, I had local german pasta dish, Yum, and the boy had the german sausage, tasted good, nice change to Nam food. The only negative was the next day the boy had stomach 'issues' which in 3 months in Asia, he had not had before, this could have been from anything really though, and not that major, probably more likely that he was used to Asian food now and just not used to rich western food.
Breakfast- was not run by the German chefs (who I believe lease the restaurant space in the evening) - was fine, typical Vietnamese doing western kind, choice of eggs etc - complimented with a lovely morning view from the rooftop restaurant
Pros: Quiet area across the river from the chaos, great views
Cons (potentially): We found it walkable to the other side and all the action, but may be too far to walk in the heat for some, taxis are cheap though
