I didn't really expect much from a 2-star hotel - but Blue Sky really blew my friends and me away. The room was impeccable, we were fed two more breakfasts than were obligatory, and it was located at a pretty central location (even if a handful of tourist attractions were located a little further, getting a reliable taxi was entirely painless with the help of the staff).
But having said this, I can definitively say that the best part of Blue Sky Hotel was the excellent service provided. My friends and I made friends with a few of the staff, and they treated us as warmly as one would treat one's family. Tuoc (not really sure how to spell his name!) made us feel very welcome throughout our stay at the hotel. On our last morning, he even got up early to cook us breakfast although he claimed that he 'doesn't know how to cook' (totally untrue! His eggs were great!). Another lady, Moon, was something like a foster Vietnamese mom to us. I suppose she noticed that we were all fresh-faced 19 year-olds, so she really went out of the way to make sure that we were doing okay. She recommended good eating places for us, double-checked our cruise bookings, called taxis when we needed them, told us where to buy good coffee/souvenirs/yogurt/whatever, gave us awesome humongous bear hugs.
Oh, and Blue Sky has wifi. The username is Blueskyhotel. The password? iloveyou. This password is definitely, very much warranted! :D
