We stayed here for 5 nights in total around a tour to halong bay. First impressions were superb, although we arrived at 6 am the owner gave us a fantastic welcome and the room was already prepared for us, a stark contrast to some other hotels we had stayed at! We paid 25 dollars a night for a double room that was very nice, spacious, and with a good air con system, as well as a desk and chair. However, the room did have no window, the tv had very poor reception on many channels, and the plug on the bath didn't quite fit properly so that water leaked out, albeit very slowly, when you had a bath! The price did include breakfast, which was good, although basic, as well as free internet. The staff were amazingly friendly throughout, and offerred to arrange a tour to halong bay for us. I have no doubt that the tour they offer is great, but we had already booked one through ocean tours. At some places, staff can become unfriendly when you decline tours, but not here, they continued to be extremely helpful and were not pushy at all. When we asked to stay an extra night, that was also not a problem. Overall, I think the hotel costs a little bit too much given we had a few problems with the tv/bathroom, but the staff are just brilliant and I would definitely recommend it!
