5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, had a great experience, upgraded to VIP room for last night after my daughter arrived. Great location, has all that you need near and around hotel, cafe's, tour company's etc. I travel regularly and don't usually bother to write review's but I felt the need to tell anyone who is thinking about this motel that they are making a great decision if they decide to stay here.

Clean rooms , friendly staff, good atmosphere. The hotel is located in district one but the room was surprisingly quite. Breakfast was pretty good for a low budget hotel, u could choose from different menu items and of course the tea and the coffee. Also everyday 2 complementary water bottles the hotel was providing to his guests. I know it doesn't sound something big not many hotels do that. I will stay there again without any problem.

Hotel rate is quite cheap, with simple coffee and toast breakfast thrown in.
Location, hotel is not very easy to find as it is located in a back alley. But it is near to
a lot of eateries and small shops that sell lots of cheap stuff. Money changers and
tour centres are also close by.
Room is clean with enough space for 2 persons. Counter staff is friendly
and helpful (can speak English). Stayed 2 nights before proceeding north to
Nha Trang.

Room Tip: Ask for room at high floor.

Another visit to the Lac Vien Hotel (our 4th). The staff are always friendly, the rooms clean. We generally stay in the VIP room but the airconditioning wasn't working so they put us in another room (305). It was pokey and barely had room for the suitcase and there wasn't even a kettle to make a coffee. We returned a week later and were put into 403 which was a much better room than 305. Obviously the rooms are very different and your stay will definitely be affected by which room you get. Personally a VIP room seems to be the way to go.
The Lac Vien is close to the markets and restaurants . It can be a little noisy, but overall is very handy to most things.

Room Tip: A VIP or a room ending in 3 seems to be the best.

We booked a VIP room for $55 but managed to bargain to $45 a night.Its clean and the aircon is perfect. What I like is the balcony eith street view and large window.All facilities in th room and bathroom are available.

This is my 4th stay at this hotel.It always delivers good service.you pay a little more than others but the staff continue to deliver a high standard.we always book a VIP they are really big and offer a jug for coffee a nice tv and DVD.they are a bit noisier though being on the street.I like the fact that they have security guards as well.they ..great guys as well.It is getting a little dated now but it still offers a great selection of rooms. And Upgraded WiFi.I would defiantly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.the VIP,s are almost 2 rooms, but a bit noisier being on the street side....
