Stayed there for 5 nights and also booked a Halong Bay Tour and Train Ticket at their service desk. Overall the stay was very nice - the room was clean, bed was comfortable, the staff really responded fast whenever anything was wrong or I needed help and they were friendly and genuinely happy too. They had good advice about taxi's, fees, locations, etc. I would definitely recommend a stay there. I felt myself and my things were always safe - and I have my laptop and iPad (along with normal travel stuff) with me so it matters. The location was good, breakfast was included and quite tasty (I love the fruit) too.
Only two things to note - the cost of the train ticket seemed high compared to the price shown on the ticket. The travel agent covered the price of the ticket by stapling their card over the bottom corner and pasting it all on another card. Once that junk was removed the face value price was revealed. It appears they were trying to hide this from me. I expect to pay some commission for the trouble of getting the ticket but it seemed high compared to other countries where I used the same service.
The internet also went down a number of times (don't know if it was hotel or service provider issue) but they fixed it quickly and were thankful when I notified them.
Again, overall I was very pleased there and recommend them highly.
