    The worst hotel experience ever...

    Dirty hotel.. Dust everywhere. It was also listed as 4 star hotel however it was 3 star hotel so I requested cancellation of the rest of stay to Hotels.com then I talked to the hotel manager on the next day. She said "It will be done by Hotels.com you may see the cancellation result within a week or more. We have nothing to do at this moment." However the manager did not inform it to Hotels.com and I have not gotten any refund until now.

    Good boutique property. Very little amenities. Didn't receive any indication of Expedia vip benefits. None offered. Good price for stay, nice clean hotel.

    • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The hotel has a beautiful old vintage library theme all around. the location is in an alley so it's not facing a main avenue which makes it quieter that other locations. It's not close to the city center, mostly closer to the airport but if you need a place away from the downtown core noise this is perfect, besides taxis are cheap in Vietnam. The staff is very helpful, always available, providing tips on where the food places are at, where to exchange money, etc.
