My fiance and I started off our travels in Vietnam with a stay in The Golden Silk and were so glad we splurged a bit. We'd arrived from London at around 6am and were fully expecting our room not to be ready. The staff welcomed is in and asked if we would like to pop up for breakfast while our room was ready, excellent buffet style breakfast with traditional Vietnamese cuisine as well more Western style and continental.
Though our room still wasn't ready for another hour or so, one of the member's of staff gave us a very helpful overview of the town centre offered to arrange transport to anywhere (most helpful were the numbers of reputable taxi forms). The room we had was incredible, through one of the superior rooms, it was worth every penny and the bed was huge!
My other half was on crutches during our trip and they made sure that help was available should we need it.
The hotel is seconds from the centre and a 2 minute walk from the main lake. I had no doubt recommending this hotel to other travelers we met along the way.
