“Excellent location and willing staff on Front Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2011

This hotel is in an excellent location for access to a variety of eating and entertainment options that will make your trip more interesting and inexpensive. Rooms have very high ceilings, beautiful mouling, comfortable furniture and bed linens. Only about two blocks from the hydrofoil boat dock and close to several parks. It is across the road from the beach and our room had a nice view of the water and boats. Quiet at night.
There is some construction nearby but the noise was bearable. The free in room wi-fi works very well and the breakfast had many many choices. The rugs are a bit worn but clean. Shower is functionally obsolete. Front desk helped us hire a driver for half day of touring at a reasonable cost and sane driver. I would say this is an authentic experience and beats the more remote, isolated hotels on back beach and to the north on the South China Sea. Very few staff have much of a command of English but somehow that was not really a problem.

Room Tip: Go for the midrange room with a balcony and sea view.

Spent two nights at this lovely hotel which has been renovated, since I last visited it many years ago. The room with a sea view and balcony was large, clean and very comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a feast with good food and an extensive selection of various dishes, fresh breads, pho, juices and coffees, etc. Enjoyed the easy walking distance to downtown, the seaside park, and other locations in the immediate area. Walkable from the hydrofoil station. Good wifi coverage and AC.

Room Tip: Seaside provides a lovely view of the park and Front Beach.

I love the charm of this hotel, it has that "old style" feel to it and was a great introduction for me to Vietnam. I was impressed with the antique decor in my room and the section with the Asian restaurant and bar, the staff were very friendly and helpful, I had a great four days here to relax before head off to work.
The swimming pool was fine, only a minor inconvenience to get a ticket at reception, but I planned for that and took the ticket at breakfast time.
Meals were great and the omelets at breakfast were perfect.
Very convenient location to walk along the beach and to other restaurants and banks.

I don't know why the post below complains so much. The only negative was the nightclub next door but it wasn't so bad that I couldn't sleep.

Looking forward to staying there again soon.

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view, they are also quieter (away from nightclub next door)
