We stayed in the Ngo Huyen establishment (the "original" one) for a total of 3 nights/4 days in a private room (double room).
Right during the first night my girlfriend felt that she had an allergic reaction (itching) of some sort to the pillow, which she stopped using and was able to sleep. During the entire stay she felt that her respiratory tract was irritated, which happens to her when exposed to mould. It is likely that there is mould as the rooms don't ventilate well (or at all, to be precise).
We had originally booked just two nights, and during our stay I booked two more one night a time and paid for them. During the checkout it turned out that one of the payments wasn't registered (either the receptionist forgot to do it or then he's pocketing money) which caused an issue as they were asking us to pay for the "unpaid" night. Thanks to the helpful manager we were let go after figuring out the situation for 25 minutes, so if you're staying at this place always remember to ask for receipt for every payment you make to avoid situations like this.
The room layout was ok, with plenty of wardrobe space and a comfortable bed. The WiFi worked well in the room and other areas and the connection was fast. Air conditioning was also very efficient.
