This is by far the nicest place we've stayed in SE Asia so far. We had a great place in Kampot, Cambodia but for more $$. We paid $32 for our room, and it is a 4 star room by US standards. Big, impeccably clean, beautifully decorated. Plus there is a desktop computer (in every room!), satellite TV, huge bathrooms, free large waters every day!, free bike use, AC, really great included breakfast (with eggs, pancakes, fruit, drip coffee, Vietnamese rice and noodles, etc).
Our only problem was the AC was not as strong as it should be (this sounds incredibly picky, but we are traveling for 6 months in Asia, usually have fan rooms, and so we wanted the AC to actually work since we are splurging. Plus it is HOT in Vietnam in May!). The AC worked, but not strongly; at 17 degrees Celsius, the room should be an ice box with condensation running down the windows but we were hot all night. 2 workmen came to fix it but they spoke no English and it appeared to work (bc technically it did). I wanted to just ask them to check the freon (or whatever chemical they use in Vietnamese ACs) but this was impossible without speaking the language. The problem was helped by closing the bathroom door, and aiming the fan towards the bed (no swing action).
The staff is friendly, the location is great, so easy to walk to great restaurants and tailors.
This is definitely the best high end bargain place through our travels so far.
