I did not want to waste time hopping around travel agents looking for best deals so I emailed this hotel for a customized package with 3nights hotel plus Halong Bay 3D2N trip altogether. From all the info I could get from various travel websites, I calculated their package to be value-for-money and value-for-time since I do not need to spend time transacting with other agents.
1) Located on a quiet street filled with cafes, pubs and eating places but close walking distance to the lake and other busy locations.
2) Lake view from the honeymoon room is great.
3) Service is good. They start your stay with an introduction of the attractions on a map. I am also impressed with the fruit platter they put in our room refrigerator upon our return from Halong.
4) Breakfast is very delicious with three different freshly squeezed juices. Their hotel cafe is actually frequented by Vietnamese locals too.
5) Travel arrangement by the owner, Jenny, is swift and good. Able to communicate very well in English both vocal and written. You can be assured her recommendations are good and honest.
1) Bathroom has a light stench some times.
2) The machine operating the lift is a bit noisy during midnight. I stayed on top floor nearest to the lift machine.
3) Mattress is below average.
4) Shower power is weak and temperature is inconsistent at times.
Room includes slippers, kettle, bottled water, safe, TV, toiletries (shaver, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc) and refrigerator.
