The hotel is really good value and I'd agree with most of what has been written here. I'd also add that - for us, at least - the hotel's location was a real advantage. It's away from the minor hassle and sometimes underwhelming food of the backpacker district (Pham Ngu Lao / De Tham). Instead you are on a very authentic Vietnamese neighbourhood street, with groceries, food stalls and sidewalk cafés. During the first part of the morning, there are a few market stalls, which is great for getting tropical fruits. We hired a motorbike which made getting around easy.
