“Pretty with a Touch of Old Beds”
Reviewed 6 November 2010

Initially I thought the rooms looked lovely. Then I made the mistake of plopping on a bed. OUCH. I don't think it's possible to have a harder bed. There aren't real windows (that can be shut) and it was raining the whole time, so I heard the hard rain all night long (not the pleasant kind of rain sounds). One girl in my group slipped in the lobby (as it was slippery) and had to get 6 stitches in her face. The staff should really try to keep the lobby and centralized areas dry during the wet season. Also, there wasn't anyone on staff who spoke English that well; therefore when you needed anything; it became frustrating to get an answer. There was no wifi in the rooms, only in the lobby that has hard and uncomfortable chairs. Do NOT come to the area in November. It was pouring rain every single day - depressing!

This is actually a really nice older vietnamese style building, and the pool area is great to relax in after a hot day of sightseeing, however there wasn't always staff at the pool bar if you wanted a drink. However, the beds are really hard - rock hard, and the shower isn't the greatest. The street it's on isn't anything special, it's a short walk over the bridge into the old town - but when it's stinking hot this short walk can seem rather long.

The included breakfast was actually one of the better ones I experienced in Vietnam, good pastries!

There were a group of us travelling together, the pool area was lovely, however my room was old, mouldy and musty. I bought airfreshener to make it smell better. The hotel was in renovation mode, so the top floor was cordoned off and workmen drilled and made lots of noise all day. Too bad if you needed an afternoon rest. The breakfast was served on the first floor, and was nothing to rave over.

The also overcharged me on laundry and then didnt give me any change.

We travelled in a group of 15. This hotel has a pool and the rooms are nice. it's just outside the town, literally you only walk over the bridge (400/500 metres away) and you are in the town.
The breakfast was very nice. The staff were friendly and helpful. The swimming pool is clean and refreshing.

We stayed at Van Loi in October 2009 as part of a family tour group. We were actually in this hotel when Typhoon Ketsana hit. We were flooded in for 4 days, but the staff and service were out of this world! The kitchen on the top floor was damaged, so everything was moved downstairs. Even without power, food was cooked to perfection and the kids were kept entertained. The staff even continued changing our sheets while we were flooded in, even though there was no water or power! Yes, this hotel is over the bridge from the town, but we preferred it that way. Much quieter at night and walking over the bridge at night is beautiful and the local Vietnamese friends we made on this side of the river will remain in our hearts for ever.

So, it's not in the town. That's a lie. It's across a bridge. It's not far, but it can be a bit intimidating at night. The hotel is nice. Breakfast is also quite good. Here's the problem: They are out to make a buck. They did my laundry and miscalculated my items. They doubled the count! Too add insult to injury, it was three times the cost that it would have been in town. They refused to prove their item count. At the end of the day, they have your passport, so you are bullied into paying them. It's extortion.
They also overcharge for tours, so book those in town. Just be prepared to walk across the bridge again.

Reviewed 29 January 2010

It is located in an inconveient neighbourhood. No car stopping outside the hotel and it is necessary to take 10-15 minutes walk from the parking lot across the bridge. The brakfast on the top floor offers nice view and reasonable choice but semi-outdoor with no air conditioning. The pool is relatively large but insufficient lightling at night. The roo is very basic though there is a small balcony. Very thin wall and door. Free Wi-fi but very slow and weak signal.
