I was astonished to read the number of negative remarks about this sparkling new hotel that simply delivers everything that I as a traveler require and expect. The person who complained about its being his worst hotel in Vietnam should count himself lucky. It is popular and busy, which means that with 15 stories, you may need to wait a little longer for an elevator at peak times, but I have been in many more prestigious hotels where the problem was a great deal more acute. The rooms and en suite toilets, in size, fixtures, and amenities provided, easily match those of a top international 5-star hotel. Contrary to some insomniacs, I found the firmness of the bed the recipe for a perfect night's sleep, and the breakfast that followed was better than most on my 21-day tour. Perhaps one can quibble with the choice of the 4th floor for the breakfast room, as access by elevator is less convenient, and you cannot judge the weather and required clothing without descending. The hotel has 3 restaurants, none of which we tried on our single overnight, but the large indoor pool is impressive, and the exercise facilities rather good. If, like me, you are staying a short while mainly to cruise on the Bay, this ---at about a Km from the pier----- is ideal. If you have come to spend your time in the town, it is rather some distance away, but who in their right minds would want to?
