Like most other reviewers of this hotel, we were well pleased with the Xuan Mai and especially the lovely Mrs Nang and her staff. We were met at the airport and the transfer was fast and easy. Mrs Nang was on hand to greet us on arrival at the hotel, even though it was late at night and our flight was an hour later than expected. She is a genuinely lovely woman who greets you like you are not just another guest. We stayed in room 4a at the front of the building. Traffic noise did not bother us and having a front room gives one a constant view of what's happening on the street below. The room was very spacious, well maintained and very clean.
The lift (elevator) looks to have been installed or replaced quite recently.
The hotel is well located and Mrs Nang looked after our day trips, which were very very inexpensive.
We are quite careful with our health and therefore not in the habit of eating eggs and ham on a daily basis. But the staff understood our requirements and provided us a double serving of fruit, in lieu of the aforementioned breakfast foods. A little more breakfast variety would be the one improvement the hotel could consider.
We will certainly recommend the Xuan Mai to all our friends.
