Having booked at another hotel but been unsatisfied I stumbled across this through some travellers I met on a Halong Bay cruise who were staying here. I mentioned I didn't have anywhere to stay when I returned and they very kindly offered to blackberry email the hotel and check for availability.
They replied positively and quickly. The hotel itself has a very new feel and the rooms are very well appointed. Even though I was travelling solo I had two large beds, a flat screen TV, rather fast wifi internet in room and AC. It also had one of those humorous Japanese style bidet spraying automatic toilets.
The only downside, if it really could be called one is that I wasn't informed there was a curfew (which there isn't) and when I returned after a lively night out at 4am the fast asleep nightwatchman almost gave me a rather unwelcoming welcome. Almost hostile. Not that I minded at the time as I was far too much of a good mood. Would be nice to be warned if there was a requirement of getting back earlier so as to avoid the wrath of this gentleman.
Overall I would definitely stay at this place again. The room, for the price ($40 USD), was probably the best of my time in Vietnam.
