Saigon Quang Binh Hotel
Ranked #16 of 28 Hotels in Dong Hoi
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised to be up graded to a two room suite with magnificent views of the river. The treats didn't stop there...a fruit basket and flowers arrived whilst we were unpacking. The suite was modern and extremely comfortable. We didn't tire of the view as boat traffic on the river was constant and varied. We could also see the large dip nets from our room.
We decided to eat in the hotel but when we tried to access the dining room found ourselves redirected to the coffee bar as the hotel was catering for two hundred Thai visitors and a private birthday party for 100 guests. Our redirection was discretely handled and we were not neglected. We felt the hotel had handled the work load extremely professionally. We were also pleasantly surprised to find the Karoke stopped on the dot of 10 pm and the night was quiet.
The hotel was centrally located within walking distance of the fish market and the entrance to the river. We walked that far and discovered the sea frontage lined with stalls selling fresh fish dishes.
Breakfast was more Chinese than European but challenging eating is part of the travel adventure so try everything or settle for a you-can't-go-wrong omlette.

Room Tip: Anything with a view of the river

Spent 3 nights here during a recent medical mission trip. Hotel is situated on the river, great walking area, near night market. Rooms are clean, comfortable, modern. Staff is helpful and attentive. Laundry service is great--same day, good job, good price.

Breakfast was fair only for the Western traveler. If you want soup for breakfast, have at it. I would have liked more fresh fruit and french bread. You can buy fresh french bread in the nearby market. I walked to the market area for some decent bread and coffee.

Room Tip: River view, 4th floor.

I have stayed at this hotel twice. Once, almost opening it about three or four years ago. Second one, last December during a motorbike tour around Vietnam.

The rooms are a little bit soul-less. Average decoration of a business hotel, which is a pity, because I love Quang Binh province and I think visitors would thank some more charm, after the breathtaking excursions that one does around. On the other hand, it feels great such modernity, albeit cold, and cleanness after a tiring sweaty day. Do ask for a room with balcony (low floor). Amazing balcony to enjoy sunset and relax with some beers!

Service is good, better than expected in a province, but not a charming friendly one. It is somehow cold. The hotel is helpful on finding and arranging activities, transportation and suggest daily possibilities.

The restaurant has a just average menu of less than average food. Although it is necessary to go by motorbike or taxi, I recommend to go to the stripe of seafood restaurants along the beach. That will wrap nicely a great stay in Quang Binh.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony. They are on lower floors, but totally worth it.

The Saigon Hotel in Dong Hoi is located on the banks of the Nhat Le River. Early mornings are punctuated with the putt-putt-putting of the fishing boats heading to the fishing grounds offshore. Large dip nets are part of the scenery as are the colourful light shows on the bridge. The rooms are close to international standard although for some reason they do smell a bit musty when entering initially although the air con quickly deals with this. Across the street is an outdoor cafe associated with the hotel, a nice breezy place for a coffee. The breakfast is so-so - a bit repetitive and uninteresting. The biggest drawback is the Karoke place next door, treating all to out-of-tune and very loud singing which thankfully ends about 10 pm. Bring earbuds...

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room.

The most beautiful hotel we stayed in during our tour. Too bad we only stayed 1 night in this hotel; there's nothing much to see or do in Dong Hoi once you have visited the nearest attraction, the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. We took an evening stroll along the river front to admire the bridge and have seafood dinner by the sidewalk on the other side of the bridge.

Decor is modern, room is clean, spacious and quiet. Just next to the hotel is the swimming pool and on the other side is a bar/cafe to chill out during the evening. Breakfast is good with a number of varieties.

The rooms are comfortable and view is great but that's about it. The price I paid (USD 80 per night) for a room looking out over the river was only slighty less than the rates at Sun Spa Resort. Dong Hoi is a provincial backwater so there's not really much to do there. I went for a walk up the road and found a local fresh produce market with good fruit. The food at the hotel - even though some will disagree - is of a poor quality. The main clientelle at the hotel are Vietnamese and, accordingly, everything, including the food, is geared towards them. The western breakfast is almost non-existant with small omelettes, and small servings of sausages, on offer. if you want to fill up at breakfast time; eat lots of rice. If this hotel wants to attract more western tourism it needs to lift it's game substantially in the food department. On a more positive note the staff, although not proficient in English, were helpful and friendly.

We had been told that the Saigon - Quang Binh Hotel in Dong Hoi was the only reasonable option, something of a "compromise" place to stay, so imagine our surprise when we checked in at a big modern hotel, comfortable, well-equipped, terrific view, nicely apointed, free wifi. After a long and not-so-comfortable day on the road, it was like finding a sliver of paradise.

The down side though, was the language. Although the staff was friendly and willing, their English was just not up to the task, particularly in the lounge and dining room. We could not order anything successfully, either in English or in my fractured (but elsewhere usable) Vietnamese. In the end, except for the included breakfast buffet (just okay), we were frustrated in our efforts to eat in the dining room or have a snack in the lounge, and had to go elsewhere.

A note: the only obvious "elsewhere: was a seafood restaurant directly across the street on the river. I don't know the name, but avoid it at all costs! It is the one bad experience I have had in a restaurant in Vietnam, overpaying by a lot for a barely edible meal and lousy service.
