This hotel was the last stop on our itinerary and boy, did I feel pampered. Golden Sun has a chain of hotel services from the one next door to the backpacker hotel a few blocks down. They understand the service required and expected from foreigners. For the price we paid, the room and service we received was phenomenal. Price also included breakfast which was plenty to last until early afternoon. When we left for Ha Long Bay, they also stored luggage for us professionally, with luggage tags. Pickup and dropoff services at the airport very convenient and reasonably priced ($15-18). Ms Flower, Julia, and Bruce were very helpful with problems we had with the safe, local food places, and airport transfers.
Bring cash (USD or VND) to pay for your room! Credit card is accepted but includes a 2% surcharge. Be careful not to go to the Bun Cha place on 1 Hang Man - they charge tourists 90 vnd and locals 50 vnd for bun cha with spring rolls. Go to Bun Cha Nem Cua Be on 29 Cau Go instead - they charge 40 vnd for Bun Cha, no spring rolls. I recommend doing some research if you plan on eating at the food stalls, unless you don't mind being ripped off.
