About as average as it gets
Posted May 7, 2012 on Hotels
Pros: The rooms are fairly basic and standard. The view, however, of Ha Long Bay was fairly nice. The reception also pointed us to places of interest in Ha Long City, which are not available on most tours you purchase of Ha Long Bay, as we learned when we compared notes with other travelers. Though it seems to be a distance from the city, there is a small back road that leads you right to the beach and is a 10 min walk, as any staff member will point out. There was also WiFi available in the room, so accessing online maps was convenient. Cons: The complimentary breakfast was terrible. Not only was the selection poor, but the quality in comparison to other Vietnamese hotels was not very good. Furthermore, a majority of the staff did not speak very much English, thus leaving us to rely on a particular staff member to explain things to us.
