First I want to say the staff were so kind and helpful when they could be. I thought the rooms were large and the view from the first floor of the river was lovely. And even though it got quite cold at night I never felt the need for a heater. The bathroom in the first room was not really up to standard, the bracket used to hold the shower head was above my head easily a foot, and if you used it with the water on, it just shot out over your head to hit the wall. Having said that, I never had a problem with hot water. The cable and internet was really hit or miss. I know it is a problem in countries like Laos or Cambodia, but do not expect to be able to connect whenever you want. The biggest problem I had was the room had mosquitos and even though I had spray, I was terrorized at night. I went through two nights of being attacked before another room came available to move into. The second room was so much better, with a functional shower, but a massive tub that made getting to the toilet quite comical. You could tell they were really trying to make good impressions...I was there during CNY, so it actually was not quiet, but not the the fault of the hotel. The main road in front of the hotel became the shouting strip at night and yes at 5am the crows of the rooster wade me smile and swear at the same time. Breakfast was really good, especially the omelet.
I recommend renting a bike, and enjoy just wandering around this incredible city...
