Beware, non-smokers. If you can't tolerate the smell of cigarette smoke then avoid the Lac Vien Hotel. We had booked a couple of nights here for a non-smoking room but our request went unmet. "Fully booked", we were told. The entire establishment reeks of smoke. It doesn't help that ash trays in the lobby and hallways encourage smokers to stink...

The location is excellent, quite in the center of the main attractions. Unfortunately we got a room without windows and it smelled muggy. They offered a change with a rise of the price. From outside the hotel looks nice, but the rooms need to be modernized a little bit and the bathroom needs a revision. Next time for sure I'll...

I have been going to Lac Vien Hotel now for over 5 years and can't recommend this place highly enough. Mr Quan and his staff run a superb little boutique hotel.
