This hotel is ok. Good location, and decent room, although have gotten much better rooms for cheaper across Vietnam. Internet did not work (neither wifi or broadband) in either of the two rooms we stayed in while at this hotel, had to go to the lobby. But my main problem with the hotel is with the 'travel agent'. We used the hotel to book a Halong Bay tour, and while they told us we were getting a great deal, we found out later that we paid nearly double what most other people paid for the same thing! Then when we returned from Halong Bay, we used them to book the train to Hue. It was $41/pp and he told us we were getting first class, and the fastest train to Hue. When we got the tickets, the price on the ticket was only $550,000VND, and it was on HN1. I looked this train up, and it was not the fastest train at all, but he told me that the website I was reading was "fake and not true". The train we got was certainly not first class, we had hard sleeper, and the bathrooms were disgusting. And the A/C only worked about half the time, making it ridiculously hot in the cabin. And the train took 16 hours to get to Hue! VERY dishonest booking agent at this hotel. Personally, I think you can find something better for the price, and hopefully a bit more honest employees as well.
