“Good view, not a great hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

This hotel is clean and well located, but not what you would expect from an international four star hotel. The pick of the hotels at Halong bay is the Novotel, which is much more expensive. However, this place while it lacked many four star amenities like the bidet spray in the bath, an LCD TV and an iron in the room. The buffet breakfast is a little basic, but has an egg action station. As with most places in Vietnam the lower level of staff does not speak English very well. They have conference facilities, and it is walking distance to the departure pier for the boats to Halong bay.

Room Tip: Ask for a deluxe room, they are much larger, and have more of the amenities expected in a four star...

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2011

This is my first trip to Halong Bay and since it was a company teambuilding trip, I do not know the price as it is all paid by the company. The hotel is facing the sea so we had a nice sea view from the hotel room. The bathroom was clean and the bed was spacious. The wall however was not noice proof, so with a slight noice from outside, it can be heard from the room. I can hear the sound of vehicle and sound at night. As my stay was quite short, did not explore the restaurant on the top floor so could not comment on that. The breakfast was OK with a lot of variety, however it was the same food for the 2 breakfast that I had taken.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2009

My first visit to Vietnam was in 1994 so I have stayed at a lot of hotels there and watched the quality rise steadily over the last 15 years. Even so, I was pleasantly surprised by the Ha Long Pearl. It is charmless, modern highrise but the staff are helpful, the rooms are perfectly comfortable, the wi-fi works and it's across the street from the water. Every morning I got up at 6am when it was still cool out and walked for an hour by the sea. The views were lovely although most of the time it was hazy and overcast so the famous rocks didn't look as good as they could have. The hotel is a drive from the center of town but minutes on foot from the souvenier stalls, cafes and sea food restaurants by the water. I was there for a conference and so had all my meals at the hotel and the food was not bad at all. The breakfast was not bad at all-they do pho to order and eggs as well which was more than I expected.
