Halong Bay city is small a beautiful town. This tall hotel has beautiful views over the mountain and over the bay. The rooms are huge and spacious and the french windows allowed us to enjoy the beautiful views. The rooms are modern and clean. We enjoyed the spacious clean room.
Unfortunately you could easily tell that there were a lot of bad finishes of poor craftsmanship after decorations. Shower taps were poorly fitted and window sealers was not done properly. Electric sockets were in a user-unfriendly positions. Nevertheless, the management must have known about the issues but it will be challenging for them to rectify the initial badly installations and fittings.
The buffet breakfast is outstanding. There are lots of choices such kimchi, miso soup, vietnamese pho, freshly bake breads, cereals, fresh fruits. They are all good. If you can avoid the peak hour ( before 8 am) in the restaurant, it is very enjoyable experience in a nicely decorated dinning room!
Lifts are very fast. I had to disagree with some previous reviews or the hotel has already rectified the problem.
By and large, it is a beauitful hotel in Halong Bay and about 20 Min. walk to the wharf or VND 22,000 by taxi.
