Upon walking into the hotel you are greeted by refreshing air conditioning and beautiful modern asian decor. The counter staff is quick and wonderful and the view through the lobby while you wait is simply amazing.
The hits keep coming as you make your way to your room as well. The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated with wood trimmings and furniture that give it an old world feel with a modern twist. We were on the 9th floor and the view from the balcony was simply gorgeous.
After a day of exploring around Ha Long Bay, we were ready for a full night's rest. Upon getting into bed, a sleepless night of tossing and turning started - I've slept on hard beds before, but the blending of 5-star amenities with prison-like beds really turned me off. In addition, the walls were so thin that the we could hear the people in the rooms next to us. It was as if they were living in the walls!
All in all, if the bed was more comfortable I'd have given this hotel a top rating, but it was just too hard and I couldn't get any sleep. It really is a shame because it's one of the best hotels in Ha Long Bay.
