Stayed in family for a longe weekend. The hotel is located in the “tourist area” of Ha Long (newly built) and for tourists; so the surroundings are nice, full of restaurants / coffees / convenience store / 500m from the beach (it is a reclaimed beach.... not a natural one). The Novotel is a little old but well maintained; the rooms are spacious and well equipped. Because of the park next to the hotel, you enjoy an unblocked view of the bay. The food at the restaurant is fine, you can obviously find cheaper and better outside; but you are happy to get some food served in your room when you had a late arrival flight... The service is fine for a 4* hotel; lack of some training but this is not a palace. This is great place for family stay when you roam around all day long and just get back to the hotel to rest and relax. The major issue we had is that they had a corporate gala diner (they will not tell you upon booking). Music was deafening in the lobby but as the staff said: we did not heard anything in our room. —> the problem was drunken staffs yelling in the corridor of our floor....Had to go out and ask the guys to stop. The hotel would have deserved 4* & 5* rating without this... —> Corporate partirs are fine but then they should book the entire place ! Would definitely recommend outside of these events.

We throughly enjoyed our beautiful rooms, I made some requests regarding wanting a higher room , conjoing rooms and my friends birthday which they arranged everything for me. The conceig was so helpful, always providing us with recommendations and very knowledgeable. She had braces and the sweetest face. We drank cocktails, ate pizza and enjoyed other drinks and snacks which were all delicious and not overly priced. All in all the facilities where clean, well decorated and comfortable. It is an older hotel but very well maintained. Definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here last year, around February (2019), and it was absolutely perfect. The hotel staff went above and beyond for us in every way and they deserve the best. (So sorry the review is so late :/). The hotel was very clean and sophisticated, had a fantastic breakfast of variety, and was a walk away from Sun World ( A must do). It also itsn't a far drive to the ports where you get on the boats to see the bay. The rooms were great sized, very nice, and I would definitely stay there again. Thanks again Novotel Ha Long.<3

1) I always check out in reception, Receiption calls to check room - yeah it’s standard process. But today, housekeeping staff is cleaning another room when I go out, suddenly she ask do I check out (???) and changed to my room even she did not finish with above mentioned room 2) then the story starts... Receipts inform me that I used minibar (that actually I did not). I asked her to checked because I’m sure I did not. Then she was pretending that she checked the issues and explain me “You only opened snacks and juice from minibar, did not use it but should could as used”. After 3 mins “juice have been magically changed to mineral water”. I have asked them logical question “do you think guest will open bottle and will not use and leave drink? What’s a logics?”. After that they are pretending to checked again and answered “the bottle is drunk a half” It was magical!!!! I paid to them, it’s only 44.000 vnd (only 2 bucks), so paid for awful service 2 bucks is ok, maybe novotel staff is hungry for tips that force them to play seach scenarios with guest, they think guest did not pay attention and always think “oh, maybe I have used” :))) 3) when I asked them to give their name, housekeeping staff’s name and contact of GM to complaint they refused and told me they DO NOT have GM, only OM (and she told she is OM) =))) great, staff that check out for me is OM, what’s a privilege! And what do you think? Actually they have GM (of course). The main questions is their integrity and how many guest they have cheated! :) 4) attitude of staff: in the end they talk with guest that we are criminals and they pardon us. Great job Accor hotels. Next time better to choose another hotel chain to avoid such level of sevice!
