Our stay with ICON 36 hotel left a lot to be desired. While the hotel staff was very attentive and professional, the room itself was terrible. We stayed in room 403 and it was the worst hotel bed I have ever slept on. It was just a boxspring with a sheet over it. There was absolutely no padding or cushion...

Comfortabele nice hotel with clean rooms and good beds. Good price quality rate. Breakfast is pretty sober but good enough. And most of all a very, very kind staff that helps you with everything, from planning and booking trips to opening suit case locks who refuse 😢. Hotel is well located at the border of the old city. We can...

As we were traveling on motor bikes, with my son, across the country, we never reserved any hotel in advance. Walking down the street we thought that this hotel didn't look bad so we went in. Great staff. Smily, charming, enough to make you stay there. So we did. Very, very close to everything you need. Right in the heart...

Think this was down as a 3 star but far from it. Not surprised though as we were on a budget. Staff were great, friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and so was bed linen and bathroom. They are small and most have no windows at all. A bit of a shock when we arrived but got over it as...

We booked a family suite in Icon 36 because we had 2 large pieces of luggage. But the management decided to move us to the Icon 36 Residence, their sister hotel around the corner without telling us. This hotel is much older and dirtier, and, more importantly, smaller, and the room we were given was totally filled with the 2...

Enjoyed our stay here, the rooms are clean and well presented, the staff are super helpful, the location is great and the price provides for good value. Cons are average wifi, the breakfast and the lack of water pressure in the shower.

The three stars is in no way a reflection of the service and staff at Icon 36 Hotel. That is five stars! The cleanliness and general look of the hotel could be better. The room was clean, but smelled musty and of mildew. The bathroom floor was a little gritty and well. I had thought I had requested a room...

I had just finished some work time in Thailand. I had never been to Vietnam, so I went ahead, got a visa and booked an entire month at Icon 36. The reviews looked good. What I found was a great hotel -- maybe even the best in the Old Quarter. I like the hotel so much that I stayed a...

We selected to stay at Icon 36 because we also stayed at a hotel with the same name in Bangkok which was very nice. Thinking we would have similar service and accommodations. We called ahead to let them know we had a late arrival. SCAM: When we checked-in they didn't have two double beds in the family room available which...
