“A little tired”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2010

This is actually the Bamboo Green Central Hotel.. I just needed a hotel to go to the Da Nang international fireworks competition. Looked it up on a map and thought it would do. It's lucky the taxi driver knew where to go...there are several Bamboo Green hotels.
There are 2 lifts. Its about a 5 minute walk to the river front. The river front doesn't have the usual horde of motorbikes that one sees everywhere in Vietnam,

Arrived ok (35000 dong taxi ride from the airport) and check-in was relatively stress free.
Staff were friendly and spoken fairly good English. The room was ok (5th floor). One double and one single bed. I slept very well.The bed was comfortable. Although there is some building work going on next door. I think if the weather had been dry I would have been woken up early. The windows needed cleaning and I couldn't open them. Aircon worked very well. Bathroom was looking a little tired. Could do with a revamp. As could the chairs, one of which had a partially broken leg.

I also couldn't see the point of supplying cups when there was no complimentary coffee / tea or even a kettle supplied! Although there was fruit and a knife supplied. Bathroom had the usual toothbrush comb etc supplied. There was an hair dryer as well.

Breakfast was an ok affair, not brilliant just ok. With a little bit more choice if you are into Vietnamese food.

Internet access was free and was both wireless and wired. Although the cable had seen better days. It was reasonably fast as well.

TV was ok with a fair spread of channels although Discovery and Nat Geo sound kept disappearing then coming back....it was the same on the restaurant TV.

I had a good view of the fireworks from the roof of the hotel.
Would I go again? I have stayed in far worse but think I could have got something a bit better for the money.

Poor hotel. Located more centrally and away from the beaches. Rooms had carpet, which is not good for a tropical climate - it mad the rooms and the whole hotel smell moldy.

We too were put into the Bamboo Green when our flight to Hue was diverted. The room was damp and smelled awful. This dampness had the effect of reacting with the starch on the bedsheets which made them damp and sticky. The bath plug was attached to the bath by a piece of string and I cannot describe what I found hanging off the plug when I removed it from the bath and the tablecloth at breakfast was absolutely filthy .

On checking out we were asked to pay $2 for a short telephone call to the hotel we should have been staying in at Hue and $2 for two small bottles of water from the 'mini bar' that would normally cost a quarter of that price. They even tried to get us to pay for two cans of beer that we never had and weren't even available from the fridge.

As for the claim that all rooms had a harbour or city view, ours looked out, through four layers of metal bars, to a rusty corrugated iron roof.

This hotel is listed in Lonely Planet - usually a good source of decent accommodation but they've got this one badly wrong.

We had the unfortunate experience of being put up at Bamboo Green Hotel in Danang when our flight to Hue had to be diverted because of high winds. (The flight was frightful as the plane tried to land three times but each time as we neared the runway, it lifted off again!)
Bamboo Green was empty - as probably everyone knows its reputation, so it could accommodate an entire plane load of people.
The room was fairly big, but smelt musty and dusty, so did the pillows! There was no hot water so the lobby captain was kind enough to open the dining restaurant and my mom saw two big fat rats run away! That was the end of any thoughts of getting water. On the way back to our room, we saw a dead cockroach along the corridor, right opposite our door.
The hotel directory said every room has a view of the city or the bay - well, ours faced another room's window.
We were in the hotel for 7 hours. And that's definitely the worst hotel we've put up in. (Cruel irony: we had booked Le Residence in Hue - one of the finest hotels in the city!!)

This is the Bamboo Green Harbourside which is the one in the previous review.

Depressing - very old and tired hotel. All we could face at breakfast was the sliced white bread. Great air conditioning though.

Stay at Bamboo Green Harbour for my last night in Vietnam - luckily ! The room was small and the hotel was showing its age and quite run down. The reception could be more helpful as they cannot speak much English. The buffet breakfast was also lousy with limited food and no service personnel in sight. Should have deserve better for the price. A let down for a local 3 star hotel and there is also a sleazy massage parlour just at ground floor. It do have a lovely view of the River if you stay high enough and the location is convenient with the excellent Kim Do restauarant just down the street

Stayed July 2006
