“You get what you pay for...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

We flew from Hoi An in Central Vietnam to Haiphong, thinking that we could get to Halong Bay faster than flying through Hanoi. Big mistake.

First off, the hotel--what can you really expect for $20/night? The accommodations were pretty basic, I wouldn't recommend it if you're on a romantic getaway or with family. It really felt more like a hostel in terms of the quality and service. Here are the cons:
- sheets were stained
- no safe
- wifi didn't work
- it's not called Quang Minh any more (they've changed the name like 3 times in the past 5 yrs), so it's hard to find. The hotel is to the left of BKK Thai Restaurant.

Pros:
+ no bed bugs
+ good location, on a touristy street with bars and restaurants, close to the bus station, market across the street
+ cheap
+ hot water

If you're planning to go through Haiphong to get to Halong Bay because you think it's closer, just fly into Hanoi. Our bus from Haiphong to Halong City took just as long (3 hrs) because the bus tried to pick up passengers the entire way there. Even though it's only 45km, the bus traveled about 15km/hr. And to top it off, they drop you off on the side of the highway--it's very sketchy. Better to just arrange a private shuttle/transport from Hanoi through your cruise/junk operator.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2011

I'm sorry but I can't remember what the name has changed to, but obviously the location is the same. The hotel is in a beautiful colonial building with high ceilings. The staff are really genuine. The porter would not even accept a tip for lugging my very heavy suitcase up a big flight of stairs. The location is very convenient - close to the main road and across the street from the supermarket. The building has a lift/elevator but reception is one floor above ground level and has a very steep flight of stairs without hand rails - not great if you have heavy luggage or mobility issues. the other downside is the lack of heating. Some hotels in Vietnam have air conditioners that double as heaters - not here. Haiphong is fairly chilly in January and coupled with the high ceilings my room was freezing. If there was heating I would have rated the hotell as a 4 due to its refurbishmment, location and staff.

Arranged pickup from airport and even though plane was 2 hrs late they were waiting for us. Our deluxe twin share room was actually 2 rooms with kitchen. The staff were just the nicest people on both day and night shift, making sure our stay was enjoyable. Breakfast was o.k , eggs and baguette. Located centrally in haiphong city and very close to Maxims restaurant .

  • Liked — friendly staff , huge room.
