we stayed in the front suite of the hotel on the 7th floor and although the room is bright and clean the floors are disgusting ,the bathroom is large and the surfaces are clean but the lack of a clean carpet really does spoil the whole effect . we stayed here for 5 nights and found the location awful , if you want to walk into the city it is a good hour away , we are the walking type of people who like to mix with locals and see the "real vietnam " oh dear ... the pavements are the parking lots for all the motorbikes and as they use the space to also ride along , not the safest place in the world , a taxi from the hotel takes about 10 mins and costs about 50.000 dong . (taxi to airport is about 150.000 dong)
the smell of urine is also very strong in alot of places around the city
the breakfast is fine , although it would really help if the staff smiled , as with the rest of vietnam nobody smiles or welcomes you to anything .
there are a few good food options close to the hotel but they envolve crossing the streets so not so easy . i took the "mulan " granmother approach in the end , just dont look and keep walking .
the best coffee -in my opinion can be had by going to the junction of cao thang and 3 thang 2 , not to far away , the place is easy to spot as it has a large pot outside and the music is making the cups jump ! (28.000 dong per cup ) another good place for food is ao coffee on dien bien phu (only need to cross over the road and walk around the corner a bit ) the food selection and taste is very good and the coffee shake is wonderful .
