Ending a 20 day trip having stayed in 3*** 3.5*** Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hanoi, Nha Trang, Whale Island we asked our online agent vietnamonline in South Australia to up the ante and close out our accommodation with something nice. Well.......... location is ok if you like markets? but after 15 days totally over hawkers and markets. A 4**** rating for this hotel blows us away when comparing to central and north vietnam. Our first night was level 2, views were of an alleyway and a 6 storey shoddy building some 3 metres from our window, music blaring, motorbikes up and down alley 24/7. Returned from Can Tho trip 2 days later for our last 3 nights. Level 3 and even worse, closer to the green wall building, no alley nothing but green bricks 3 metres from us. After visiting reception and politely asking if something else was on offer we have been placed on the 8th floor with a view of the air conditioner and water tanks of the shoddy green building. In house mini bar and restaurant prices are a ripoff by Vietnam standards, breakfast buffet is overly influenced by Japan,Korea,Chinese food. No balconies. Pool is Aussie backyard size......just! Rooms are basic, desk only no table and chairs for 2. Disappointing to finish a great trip! HCMC has that western influence of taxes and another tax... hotels, restaurants very expensive. North and Central much better for holidaying!
