Loved our stay at VaiA. The pick-up at the airport was smooth and cost less than the meter cab we took on the return trip. The room was exactly like the photos and the bed was really comfortable. Breakfast was good with a decent choice. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The free cocktail in the evening is a nice touch. We took the bikes out one day and enjoyed biking to the beach and around the mangroves. It is about a 10 minute walk into the heart of the old town so we really liked the location.
The only negative which is outside their control is that the place across the road plays incredibly loud music in the evening. However it wasn't played at times that would interrupt sleep.

Stayed 7 nights at this hotel situated just outside of old quarter but walking distance (15mins) of restaurants/sights . Newish hotel with free use of bicycles. Good for trips to the beach or nearby countryside (rice paddies/ river) . There is free tea/ coffee in lobby all day/night (although sometimes it has been switched off & it's somewhat cold) Free cocktail (1 per person) each day at 4-6pm -mojitos are good!! Staff are very friendly & helpful.

Rooms are spacious & clean. Lack of cupboard space but most people don't stay long, so probably OK for those people. great shower!!

Although there is a kettle in the room, there is no tea/coffee provided, so bring/supply your own for room use. No complimentary water either.

Wifi is good & free use of laptops in lobby. Staff will print for you if necessary.

Breakfast is limited but adequate-juice, omelette & baguette, fruit/dessert. The spinning plates are a mystery even to me!! Faulty design but can be dangerous....

We booked our stay online $38/day, more than the advertised/quoted price in lobby of $30/day?
They were fairly booked out so maybe that's the walk-in special?

In case anyone suffers from ear wax problems, there is a guy opposite hotel who will give it a good clean for 50k dong. My husband reckons he'll be back just for the clean alone!!!

I would consider coming back

The hotel is great. Less than 10 minutes walking from the center and 3km on your way to the beach. Their bikes to take you everywhere are free. The place is very modern, clean and the staff is very nice. Always smiling. They help you out with anything you need. Specially the receptionist TRINH is so polite and helpful. We would recommend this place to our friends for sure. Her kindness is out of this world. Thank you so much for make our stay unforgettable.

We just stayed for 2 nights at the hotel. The hotel is magnificent- the rooms are extremely comfortable and well maintained, and it is fantastic value and perfectly located. The staff were incredibly helpful, going out of their way to help us at any opportunity. Will definitely be coming back and would recommend without hesitation!!

It is a nice hotel, but nothing outside of an ordinary hotel. The service is great, but $40-60 for one night in Vietnam is way too overpriced, particularly for this hotel. They used to have more reasonable prices just a few months ago.

We spent two nights here and were disappointed not to be able to book a further two, as all rooms were taken.

The hotel appeared to be new, with very nice rooms, which were a little smaller than we became accustomed to in Vietnam but were still of a perfectly reasonable size. The double bed was comfortable and all the fittings were new and of a good standard. The bathroom and shower were excellent. Everywhere was spotless.

Free tea and coffee were available in the lobby throughout the day and evening and there was a free cocktail provided every day. The tea provided was exceptionally nice.

Breakfast was a little more limited than we had been used to elsewhere but was perfectly adequate.

Staff were extremely helpful and very friendly.

The hotel is in an excellent location, around a five minute (if that) leisurely walk into the heart of the old town.

I think that overall, this is a really excellent choice and a bargain at the price we paid, which was around $30.

A modern hotel with lovely clean rooms, hot showers, comfy bed, good quiet ac and amazing staff who were always pleasant and smiling. Free bike hire and only 5 mins walk to the central market. Breakfast was the only fault not enough choice or variation. Excellent value for money would definitely stay there again.
