Personally for me this hotel was a mix of good and not so good experiences. The room we stayed in was spacious, high ceilings, if not a little dated. The A.C works well and kept the room cool of a night. The hotel has nice grounds and a small but clean pool. A nice touch was to be given clean towels the night before our 6.00am departure. The general service was good, with the hotel ensuring we could check in early and the airport pickup/drop off was arranged without issue.
So far so good! However, there are some drawbacks that travelers should consider. The hotel website describes the walk to the old town as "a few minutes walk" when in reality it is about 15-20 minutes. Luckily we didn't have children as it would have been a bit of a nightmare, particularly on some of the poorly lit sections of the road. The hotel does offer a shuttle to the old town but this isn't always at a convenient time. There is also building work going on right next to the hotel, work started at around 7.00am, perhaps when booking ask for a room away from the side where the work is taking place.
There are a limited number off sun loungers around the pool, which the hotel should look to address. Finally I would describe the breakfast as spartan, particularly in comparison with other places we have stayed in Vietnam. The food offered isn't bad per say, but there seemed to be some difficulty in keeping the already limited selection of food stocked up. This hotel is worth considering but there are probably better value places that are closer to the ancient town.
