Stayed here for three nights whilst visiting Halong Bay. Rooms was $10 per night which seems about the going rate. Room was very big with nice sea view and access to shared balcony. Bathroom was average. No free breakfast but adequate for our needs. Bed was not rock hard either which was a bonus!

We stayed for two nights and we just used the hotel for sleeping so we could explore the island in the days. The room had the essentials: towels, shampoo etc. and was okay for only two nights. The owner was very friendly and helped us book cheap and nice trips, arrange private taxi for us and show us supermarkets. The...

We went there in November 2016, the room was really cheap - we had a double room with two beds, a tv and a fridge. Unfortunately the wifi was not that good and the room smelled like fish, a very strong smell. Nevertheless it is very cheap for such a nice room! The balcony offered a really great view over...

The owner is super friendly. Clean hotel. It is basic with a great view. The price and location can not be beaten. We left our bag with camera (all of our photos from Vietnam and Cambodia) and money, outside the hotel. The owners brother collected it and placed it behind the desk. The owner then returned the bag with everything...

The price is right for what you get. It's basic but my room was very clean. The parts that really count were all recently cleaned — bed sheets, towels, bathroom. Before coming here, I had booked into a different hotel that was much pricier but turned out to be really a poor experience. I came here desperate and they were...

This hotel was good value and comfortable, the view over the bay was very nice. The rooms were clean but there were a few ants around, this wasn't too much of an issue though. The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke very good english.

We didn't have anything booked after leaving a terrible hotel nearby. Nicely approached on the street by a helpful Vietnamese man that spoke perfect English. Top floor rooms overlooking harbour nicest. Only paid 250,000 dong for a night. Great bathroom with nice shower perfect for after boat trip. Organised bus to Hanoi with no fuss.

Simple hotel with okay beds, wi-fi, bathroom and a excellent host called Larry who was really friendly and will give you good advice on what to do! The view was also stunning and the hotel is located in the center of the town which is great because it was close to all the night life and activities during the day!

The hotel is okay, but it has some ants walking on the floor, of course you can't expect too much in SE Asia for the budget price. You can get better at other hotels with a much nicer view (I.e. without the mega TV in front). These people will just completely lie about the tour. We had an explanation about...

Rooms were ok for the price, no more and no less. We've been there in off-season and paid 12$ for a double per night (without breakfast). The view of the front rooms is great, you can sit on the shared balcony observing the local harbour's atmosphere. We booked a one day trip as well as scooters at the hotel, price...
