Ngoc Huong is a three-star hotel that is pretty well-located on the new part of town. The Perfume River is a short walk away, though if you are trying to get to the Citadel, I strongly recommend taking a taxi. It's pretty central to where most other tourists are.
The rooms are ok, and while some of them have jacuzzi looking tubs, they don't exactly work like jacuzzis. Some of my fellow travelers had problems with their showers/A/C etc, but everything worked fine in my room. There is also a small pool on the 8th floor, though that's only accessible by the elevator that's outside the building (the glass elevator).
There are several things that I really like about the restaurant. 1) They have an excellent breakfast spread. We were here for almost a month, but we didn't get bored with the selection available. 2) The view from the breakfast area is pretty breathtaking. There's nothing like sitting up on the 7th floor at 6 am, and watching Vietnam wake up, while having your breakfast. 3) The staff are very friendly.
We did have one major problem - the wifi did not work. And while the staff here are wonderful people, our repeated pleas for them to get the wifi fixed seemed to have fallen upon deaf ears. So that's a bummer.
