Reviewed 29 February 2016

I liked this hotel, but some of the rooms don't have windows, which is a little disorientating. They make up for lack of windows with a laundry voucher, which was very welcoming 7 days into my trip!
My room had a really big bathroom though.

Room Tip: Request a room with window if your worried

This hotel makes me kinda sad. It was probably pretty nice 5 years ago. Now it looks like it's been neglected. Although the rooms are basically clean, the bathroom needs a good scrubbing. Cleaning service has been on and off, but the most annoying thing is they never change the glasses and mugs by the tea kettle in the room.

We seem to be the only guests atm so breakfast has been 4 choices written on a piece of paper, none of which are really satisfying.

The staff is friendly.

Wifi is really slow. And they've had to reset it a few times.

So, if you can get a room at a cheap enough price, you're ok. Otherwise, go somewhere else.

1. Breakfast finish early at 9.30, we went for breakfast at 9am the 1st day and not many choices and food left. 2nd day, we went for breakfast around 8.30am, turns out same as yesterday, when they refill, they just refill little (eg. Chicken meat 2-3 pieces)
2. Broken tap
3. 2 burnt light bulb (however they come and fix it after we called them)
4. Cockroach crawling out of the sink
5. One of the usher ask us to pay 200k dong to go to damsen water park and we said tat can we follow the meter? And he say its the same if u follow the meter. We paid him and when we came back it only cost 100k dong using meter.

1. Friendly staff and helpful
2. Good location (Family mart opposite, massage palour next to it)

I stayed here as part of an Intrepid tour and it was very disappointing compared to all of our other accommodation.
12 stories and 1 very very slow lift (it was faster to walk down from 8th floor to reception)
Our shower was broken (shower head off the wall). We checked in late in the day, and asked to be moved to another room - this took over 1.5hrs , first they said that there was no other room available, then they said there was a room but it had to be cleaned, then they said they were waiting for a porter to be available (which we had said we didn't need). Eventually we were moved to the room right next door to the one we had been in. Receptionist complained that she was very busy, hence the delays - I went down to Reception to find her watching TV on her phone. all in all very annoying!
Breakfast was included and the food was pretty poor, especially considering the food I had had in other hotels on our trip.
Would recommend you found another hotel in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a window and a working shower

We stayed here at the end of our tour of Vietnam. Hotel is clean and the staff were friendly. There is a minimart straight across the road to buy food and drink. It is a 20minute walk to the Imperial Palace and to the big market. The lift was very slow so factor that into your time.
