“Nice place but be prepared to walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

This hotel was reasonably clean and has a lot of amenities. A gymnasium, rooftop restaurant, pool, sauna, spa, breakfast, etc. Thats why its around $70 a night so if you want all that its OK value. The room was large and quiet (we were at the back on the 8th floor). The shower did leak everywhere but other than that it was decent. The food was reasonably nice but the drinks are a little pricey. Although the pool is small its quite nicely presented, designed kind of like a pond in the forest. The staff were helpful and looked after our every request. Because its on the highway to the airport there's not much nearby except for night restaurants that open up on the street. The food is amazing but you will struggle to find anyone who speaks English so look for places with pictures of food or live food if you can - makes the sign language easier! Watch out for the horse meat restaurant down the road.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back away from the main road. You can always check out the 360 degree views from...

The ''Seastars'' hotel was booked for me and me Crew in July 2010 and we stay there for about four and half weeks.
Our experience was that the ''Seastars'' hotel was a nice clean hotel with a very friendly
hotel Management and crew,they were all very helpful and wellwilling.
And we all like the kitchen food.

Beautiful hotel with good design. The staff were really nice and helped us with any enquiry. The swimming pool was a little small and indoors however the rest of the hotel experience made up for it. Generally for the cost it was fine for sleeping. The hotel was a few miles from a nice shopping plaza. The airport is only a few miles away so an ideal stop over point when needing to get away from the area.

The Seastars Hotel was so bad it was comical. Even from the sixth floor the highway immediately outside our window was so loud that we asked to be moved to a different room. While the new location was quieter, all of the other problems were identical in both rooms. Both showers wouldn't drain, both mattresses were painfully hard, both rooms hadn't been painted or redecorated since the hotel was built sometime in the early 80's, and the TV barely worked in either one.

All of these problems could have been forgiven if the hotel were priced accordingly, but at $70 a night this was one of the most expensive hotels I encountered in Vietnam (got this rate through Expedia; in the lobby the rooms were posted at an insulting $110). To be fair, the front desk was helpful with my room switch, and the breakfast buffet was decent. Otherwise, do yourself a favor and do not stay in this hotel unless you have no other choice.

Room Tip: Highway outside is very noisy, so ask for a room in one of the upper levels towards the back of the...
