We moved to this hotel because it had an elevator and I had a bum knee that wouldn't let me climb stairs easily. Like many 3 star hotels in Vietnam, this one had a large dimly lit lobby with a reception counter and a display case selling water, beer, vodka, and shampoo.
Our room on the third floor was a good size with large windows and small balcony looking out over the town market, the river, and towards the surrounding mountains. However, because it was cold, rainy, and foggy for our 5 day stay, we could only guess at the view. The bathroom had a great shower, lots of hot water, and a toilet that required removal of tank top and jiggling every time it was flushed in order to stop the water running. Internet and TV were adequate.
Breakfast was included, but we soon discovered that the buffet consisted of the previous night's noodles, tough white bread, no toaster, no butter, no fruit, no coffee. It seemed ironic as the market across the street had tons of fresh fruit, and crusty baguettes.
One small annoyance was the passport issue: we asked for our passports to be returned after we registered but then had to pay half our bill in advance before we got them back.More
