Myself and my partner stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in early January 2014. The room was clean, comfortable and to a great standard. We spent a similar price at other hotels across Asia but they weren't as good as this one!
The reception staff were great - in particular Huan was exceptional. He even rang the airline for us to double check our booking had gone through and woke up at 5am for our check-out to say good bye - he works incredible hard and a crazy amount of hours!!!
Breakfast was good too. A bit of choice and half descent cup of tea!
The only criticisms I have are:
1. the charge for the taxi from the airport to the hotel (organised by the hotel) was way over-priced at $19!! Our return journey to the airport was $13... Organised by a travel kiosk around the corner!
2. The service manager (I think her name was Ms. Anna) was a little pushy. Obviously it's her job to get additional sales for trips but that shouldn't be at the expensive to the customer. When we mentioned we were travelling to Ha Long Bay through a travel agent external to the hotel she looked a little annoyed.
Overall - a strong 'very good' and would recommend it!. Just organise your own taxi
