I stayed there for 10 nights, I loved the room which overlooked the river. The room had a king size bed and a large bathroom with lots of old charm. I could hear the cars tooting outside but it did ease when I went to bed. The double glazing helps. The sounds are all apart of the experience. The staff were very helpful and honest, as I left the room safe open twice!
The breakfast is really extensive from tropical fruits to noodles & pastries. I really looked forward to breakfast.
I ate out for dinner most nights as the meals didn't excite me much. Cocktails are great!
You have to try the vietnamese coffee with condensed milk at one of the many coffee shops in the area. I'm now addicted to the stuff, which is unusual because I drink coffee without sugar.
The hotel is a short walk to shops and markets.
