Firstly, this place is great! Very clean, well equipped, perfect location, and friendly staff.
We booked online, and having read other travellers reviews, saw that they offered airport collections. I emailed them to enquire about the collection service, and had a reply within a couple of hours. They quoted $15 which I thought was a bit steep so opted against this in favour of hailing a cab at the airport, but the airport prices were very similar, we only managed to get a cab for $10 doing some serious negotiating (and we only has $10 on us as the ATM in the airport wasn't working). On reflection, I would have used Ngoc Linh's collection service for ease of use!
We arrived at Ngoc Linh at about 10pm. The hotel is down an alley, but it's a very busy alley with lots of other hotels, and our taxi driver had no problem finding it when we gave the full address.
The man at reception met us very warmly and led us up to our room on the 4th floor. He offered to take our bags as it was a bit of a hike, but it really isn't that hard work to carry a bag up a few steps!
The room was excellent. A really good size with ensuite bathroom with toiletries provided and a shower with hot and cold water. The rooms have air-con and cable TV as standard. The bed was super comfortable and we got a great nights sleep, if we hadn't been in such an exciting city, we could have slept all day!
In the morning they offer breakfast inclusive of the price. They give you a number of options which all come with a freshly baked mini baguette and REAL butter (none of that horrible margarine that's so prevalent around Asia). I had the omelette both mornings and it was delicious, make with onion and tomato as standard.
The day we were leaving we were getting the overnight bus at 9pm and the hotel were happy for us to leave our bags in reception all day and even use the staff toilet to brush our teeth before we left.
100% recommend this place!
