I was a bit unsure about the place when I saw the sidestreet its on, there had been flooding recently and the ground was quite moist, I am so glad I didn't let that stop me from staying! The mini-bar was free! They picked me up from the train station, also free! I couldn't believe how much I lucked out by staying here! The staff is amazing, this is the best place I have stayed so far in Vietnam and I have been here for 2 months now. As with every place I have stayed so far Anh (the lovely manager) asked if I would like to book a tour around the city right away, I told her yes but not yet, I was there for 2 weeks and wished to wait a few days and she left it alone till I was ready. When I was ready to do so she set it up for me, then I decided to do it a different day instead, also no problem. I went back to one of the tombs on my own a few days later when I could spend some very relaxing time there, tours tend to be on a set scedule, I prefer the more laid back approach of doing it myself with a ride.She got me a great deal on my train ticket, you get one with the actual cost on the ticket (this is rare with hotels I have found) and they only charged a 15,000 dong fee for picking it up from the train station for me, taxi would have been just over 80,000 both ways. I asked where the post office was and they offered to do it for me! One night I didn't feel like going for food and asked if they knew a restraunt that delivered, they actually went and grabbed it for me I think, and got a great deal too, I might add. One morning I asked about a raincoat and where would be the best place to buy one, by the time I was done breakfast they had actually sent someone to buy me one, and it was one of the thick ones that lasts. One day I said I wanted to go to the Hotsprings outside of town, they arranged a ride for a very reasonable rate, the poor moped driver, I am a very large lady, really hope thats not why the tire popped! Probably is though, he just smiled and we walked to a service station where they fixedthe tire in minutes and we were on our way again. The station was close thank god, felt bad for the man. The staff here does everything they can to make your stay great, they work everyday, they work very long hours, if they don't understand whats being said they google it, the service is non-stop! I could go on about how good this place is but really think you should just see for yourself. This is the best budget hotel I have ever come across. When I left the manager gave me a quick hug as did the desk clerk and told me that they had enjoyed me staying there, I was very touched by this. The only downfall about such great service is it makes it so hard to leave, I felt like I was leaving home and my friends behind.
