We stayed three nights at the Vinh Hung 1, in room 206, which is one of the "special" museum-like rooms. The location could not be better, right on the "main drag" of the old town. I'd say that the sightseeing is right outside the door, but the fact is the hotel is a sightseer's site in itself! It's a wonderful cultural experience with its magnificent antiques, but if your idea of a fine hotel is a cushy chair in which to watch TV, go elsewhere. The room was a fantastic period piece, but there really wasn't anyplace comfortable to sit. The canopy bed with mosquito neeting was quite comfortable. Wooden shutters on the front window are effective in blocking most of the street noise, so that was not a problem. Air conditioner worked well in fighting the over 90 degree (F) heat, but, like most hotels in the region, you have to insert a key fob in a holder next to the door to turn the electricity on, so the aircon doesn't operate when you're not in the room. The bathroom had to be seen, with a bathtub made like a barrel; wooden staves and iron straps. Very good breakfast for a hotel with only six rooms, including eggs cooked to order.
The staff was uniformly friendly and helpful.
We're glad we stayed at the Vinh Hung 1; wouldn;t have missed it for anything. But we're glad not all our hotels on our trip were such cultural experiences!
