Stayed here 3 nights in December 2012. Good location, ok area, close to the sea.
On arrival I was taken to a room without external window - was told this was 'standard' room. Paid 70.- for 3 nights/1 person. The room was damp and dark. Had to pay to 'upgrade' to a room with window. Spacious and nice room.
Reception service was the worst I've ever had (I travel quite a lot - different parts of the world).
Her English was worse than my grandchildren's (7 & 8 -just started to learn English). Asked for a grocery shop (to buy water ..) and was directed to the beach.
Ask for public bus to Hoi An and Hue. Was told it wasn't possible. Had to take a private car for an insane price. Asked which route the driver would take - she couldn't answer. Said the driver didn't know English, so I would need to take her with me as guide - she hardly knew English - so wouldn't help much. Decided to drop it.
Upon walking into the city of Da Nang the next day it appeared there were an express bus leaving for Hoi An (also for Hue), which was a fraction of the price. On my return, I boarded a local bus, which was quite alright and cost next to nothing. Don't like people who deliberately lies to me, so for this reason I would never go back.
