I was trying to book into the Vinh Hung 1 Hotel in the old quarter You know, the one form "The Quiet American. I was told it was booked out and was recommended to the Vinh Hung Riverside Resort instead. I arrived and my god I thought I was in Noosa by the river. That's alright if you have booked a holiday in Noosa but in Hoi Au it's a big disappointment.
I walked to the old town ( more than the 5 minutes away they said ) and found the Vinh Hung 1 and surprise surprise it was nearly empty, I could have had a choice of rooms. Now as the resort is nearly twice the price of the old quarter forgive me for thinking that I had been sent there to get more revenue. They moved me but would not refund the difference as I had booked through a travel agent in Ha Noi ( more fool me )
I am delighted with the Vinh Hung 1, Yes It's dark, as some have said, but they seem to have installed many more lights now and air con. I think it's absolutely delightful. Just reeks of "atmosphere"
If one wants lights and swimming pools and modernity and to be totally removed from the local street scene, just to sit around a pool and read books and be surrounded by package tour groups go to the Vinh Hung Riverside Resort .... or stay in Australia at Noosa. It's much the same
