    Don't do it to yourself. The staff were nice and that's about where it stopped. The room stunk of mould and was not very clean! If you can handle that then it's super cheap. I don't know where the room in the photos is but the ones we saw didn't look anything like that.

    This hotel was so awful I made a tripadvisor account just to warn you all. The list of problems I encountered on a two day stay was endless. First they took my passport and refused to give it back. The room was tiny (which was to be expected given the price), but also horrendously dirty. There were brown stains on...

    This place was like $7 for me for a single night in a huge single room. If you're someone who wants cleanliness the move on because the quality really shows through. Slightly dirty mattresses and sheets, unclean bathroom and general widespread low quality. But it is very cheap with a great location... great for people on a budget otherwise not...

    Sleep ANYWHERE but here. My friend and I stayed here last summer, and it took me a whole year to calm down from the terrible experience to write a helpful review. We first booked beds in the hostel room on the top floor. At first glance, it seemed like any ol'hostel room. No problem. We put our things down, figured...

    This review is very very late. I stayed in this hotel three times already. While planning my trip to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, I was surprised to see Democracy Hotel listed in one of the hotel websites. I checked the details and found the price and location acceptable so I did not hesitate to make an online booking considering...

    Walls were covered in damp and rooms smelt damp and musty. In fairness they were cleaned daily though not a great job done. Booked a 3 day halong day trip through them. The trip was pretty poor, non existent guide, awful food and very poorly organised. Huge amount of time wasted waiting around doing nothing. Location is really good though,...

    One of the worst places I have stayed anywhere in the world!! Staff was pleasant but told us there were no rats in the room even after we discovered a rather large rat trap and showed it to them. They laughed and claimed it was a joke. There were rat droppings on the floor as well. The room smelled of...

    We have spent 4 months in Vietnam and stayed in over 20 different hotels and this is by far the worst hotel i have EVER stayed in. The walls are very damp and the rooms stink of mold. We complained several times but the staff didn't seem that bothered about it. Our clothes and shoes were starting to grow mold...

    We stayed in this hotel and it was disgusting. Most rooms are dark and dingy with no window. One of the walls in our room was soaking wet and mouldy! The smell was disgusting and most probably bad for health. We mentioned this to staff who were nice at first and said they will sort it. Nothing happened and we...

    We were a group of four girls looking to book treks and bus journeys, went in and they seemed really helpful and at good prices. We booked a 3 day tour in halong bay, the staff told us everything was included however they 'forgot' to tell us about the options on the third day where we were to go to...
