“An old hotel in need of a makeover”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Great breakfast, the room is quite imposing and kitch though.
Close to the beach, nice view from the balcony.
Some hair in the bathtub which did not belong to us…
The furniture in the room was strange, not matching much.
First time I stayed in a hotel with doorbells.

Stayed in this hotel with my family as part of a tour to Ho Chih Min in Vietnam. We only had one night here but it was a nice change from the hustle and bustle of the city. The hotel is situated in an area in Vung Tau that is very quiet - no shopping, no food stalls, hardly any traffic...but has a nice stretch of beach which is just across a small road from the hotel. It is basically a place to relax :)

The room decor and furniture were quite dated and rather worn out - but it was spacious, clean and comfortable. We had a nice sea view so that made up for whatever was lacking :)

My family had a great time just walking along the beach (see pictures) and enjoying the glorious sunset. There was also a pool but we did not get to use it.

Oh I must warn you - the so-called spa at night looked a bit sleazy to me - the masseuses were all young ladies in uniforms that looked a tad too low in front and too short below :0

All in all it was a pleasant stay!

The hotel is clean and the service is fine.
The beach is opposite the hotel, where the hotel's pool is also located. The pool is of reasonable size, and is clean. However the beach was rather polluted at the time we visited (Early April 2012)
The restaurant (not inside the hotel) has good food and is always open.
We got the hydrofoil from HCMC to Vung Tau, but a friend who caught the taxi from HCMC which was about a 3.5 hour drive.
The hotel staff are friendly and catered for most things including scooter hire.

For it's price, the hotel is clean and most staffs are very friendly, especially the receptionist. Small incident which the hotel unable to receive wifi, the hotel receptionist to the extend walked to the room to check the connection. The swimming pool is across the street and near beach, overall facilities from hotel is okay. Keep up the customer service!

Great place - not a 'western' 4 star but friendly staff who try hard to please. I stayed many times and they always did their best to make sure I enjoyed my stay.

Room Tip: I found the top floor rooms to be great value for their size - but there can be noise from above if...

Stayed at the DIC Star hotel for four nights. Hotel is classified as a 4-star, but certainly isn't that. However, the rooms where clean and tidy and the staff where very friendly.

Rooms where tidy with a nice solid bed. Had an issue with the fact that the bathroom floor would get flooded every time you had a shower, due to poor design, but apart form that room was fine.

Didn't try the breakfast, but did eat in the restaurant directly across from the front entrance a couple of times. No issues with that at all.

Only complaint was the laundry service. When my shirts first came back from the laundry they looked as if they hadn't been ironed. Ask for them to be ironed - they didn't look that much better when they came back the second time and when I was leaving they tried to charge me for the privilege......

Would stay there again as it is reasonably priced, and I've certainly had to stay in worse, and the location to back beach is great for an afternoon stroll.

Enjoyed our stay at the Dic Star - clean, friendly staff, nice room on upper floor gave us great views of the sea and sand. Breakfast quite OK, reasonably good selection.

Gift shop reasonably priced for a Hotel shop, we bought quite a few souvenirs and enjoyed a few drinks in the lounge / bar. Would stay at the Dic Star again when in Vung Tau.
