This is a nice hotel tucked away in a alley off an alley. We liked the quirky little decorative touches. We stayed twice. It's hemmed in so there are no views, but our room was at the front and was light. It was clean and well decorated. The only problem was that the shower had no cubicle/curtain so the floor was flooded after a shower, and the only mirror and wastebin were in the bathroom. In the second room we had, there was a miniature bath designed for sitting in under the shower! As this had a step in it, it made it hard to stand under the shower, while doing nothing to cure the 'water on the floor' problem. A small breakfast was included - there was no choice, but it changed daily. The staff seemed friendly and welcoming, offering drinks and fruit etc, but we felt it was all a bit artificial. Nowhere we have stayed have staff been so insistent about getting us to go on their tours - we wondered if they were on commission! At breakfast the first day they told us about their tours to the tombs etc. Fair enough. We said we were going to walk round the citadel that day. The next day we were interviewed again about tours. We were evasive. We went off to check out some agencies and surprise! The tomb tour was available elsewhere for significantly less (we finally went with on Thu Wheels who provided a very nice car with driver). When we arrived back after dinner in the evening a member of staff asked us as we were going up the stairs what we were doing next day! We told them politely that we had things arranged and didn't need any help. When later we said we wouldn't take a car with driver to Hoi An but were going by train, they declined to book tickets for us and said 'you have to go to station' even though other hotels in Vietnam have happily booked train tickets for us. When we needed a bus ticket to Savannakhet, again, the price they quoted was significantly more than quoted elsewhere and when we asked if they would match the lower price, they declined and said 'must be a different bus'. This shows either ignorance or a lack of truthfulness, since there is in fact only one bus to Savannakhet per day, and all the hotels/agencies are doing is selling an over-priced pick up and transport to the bus station in addition to the bus ticket. We think it's fair enough for a hotel to let you know what they can offer, but pushing so much made us uncomfortable. We would have enjoyed this place far more without the hard sell.
