This hotel compares well with high quality international hotels anywhere I have stayed. Rooms are a good size, comfortable, high standards of cleanliness throughout the hotel. Bathrooms large and well laid out, also well lit; towels and robes excellent quality. Staff are friendly and courteous, although don't expect the kind of personal service you get in Thailand. Automatic power back up (generator) in the hotel so you don't finish up in the dark when the city power goes out. However, bedside lighting is not good, lamps cannot be angled and are too dim for reading. On the other hand, a comfortable desk and chair and excellent broadband internet are in the room - the latter at a considerable cost however on a 24 hour basis, so if you don't need it much, go to the Business Centre or find an Internet cafe outside.
Pool and gym are oustanding.
Breakfast is lavish with a huge array of options (but don't take the pho noodles, much better quality outside the hotel). Other dining options are limited and like many quality hotels in Vietnam there is no relatively low-cost cafe-style place inside the hotel. But there are plenty of places to eat nearby, although menus can be odd. Be warned about coffee, though: it is strong, bitter and not from an espresso machine.
Rates direct from the hotel are excellent, recommend direct booking as with most other good hotels in Vietnam.
