I stayed at Kim long for 2 nights in a standard double room.
The room was very nice with aircon, tv, good shower. everything you need.
It was spotlessly clean. The only drawback is that i did not have a window. so not much natural light other than a tiny ventilation window. There was little table and chair outside my room to relax in the fresh air.
Good location about 3 mins was from the river front.
The best thing about this hotel is the people.
Trung the owner is so friendly and helpful. I was traveling alone for the first time so he organised me a tour with other people and even invited me out in the evening. i did not end up taking him up on his offer because i was very tired from lots of traveling but i thought it was very sweet of him.
The receptionist, and the rest of the staff are also lovely. So friendly and so nice.
I booked a tour with them $15 for a 6-7hr tour. I thought that might be a bit long on a boat as i don't do many tours but it was really really good.
It was just me and one guy in a little boat with driver and guide. My guide was "u" a lovely girl who i enjoyed just chatting with.
The floating markets were very nice and i really enjoyed just cruising round the maze of rivers, hardly seeing another tourist just enjoying the scenery and going for a walk through i tiny village. these are the kind of things you cannot do without a guide.
We stopped at a lovely homestay for lunch with a beautiful garden where we relaxed for an hour or so. Somehow me and the guy on the tour ended up paying for our guides lunch and a drink i didn't order which left me feeling a little bitter because the tour already was not that cheap and i had very little money. but i tried to forget about it because the guide was so nice and i had had a lovely day.
I would definitely recommend both this hotel and it's tours. Just be careful when you have lunch if the waitress asked if the guide can eat with you.
The only reason this review is not excellent is because of the lack of window in my room but the staff definitely make up for they are amazing.
