One block off the beach at the far end/northeast side of the loooooooong bay front. It's 6+ kms long. I'm reading their brochure; services and facilities are many, many many! All the usual stuff, including massage and Karaoke!!!!!!You pay and they will provide. Eight floors of rooms and services. Check out the website for the numerous variety of rooms.
I had a Superior Single for 340,000 VND including breakfast mostly Asian choices but also eggs and bread/omelet and baguette and a small drink.
Their stated room facilities; air-con AND oscillating wall fan, small desk and closet, mini-fridge/bar, phone, tea and coffee in my room (I don't see it) hot water, toiletries, hair dryer and cable TV; 80 channels of which you get 3 movie and 2 “sport” and AP, TLC and Discovery. No news in English which I miss.
“Complimentary”; mineral water-two 320 ml, newspaper (Vietnamese) welcome drink and seasonal fruit? Where's the fruit?
In-room wi-fi is poor to barely fair. In the hallway I see no apparatus which means outdated, in MY opinion. Barely 2 yellow bars. Wi-fi connection, upon review/using it, is P O O R ! ! At best!
UPON further review it's b a d! Every 2 minutes it's non-existent! Doesn't work, NOT even 1 tab at a time! It is 2013 NOT 1980! Wake up! Customers are always right. I called down to front desk to “complain”, the man laughed when I told him wi-fi was horrendous. Yeah, he knows it too. At the end of my stay, 5 days, I'd say the wi-fi “connection” was as good as the old-day dial up! Not good! At all!
Pluses; N I C E soft comfortable bed, good lighting.
Business centre; 2 computers with Windows XP and little maintenance, outdated security and both are wi-fi connections. Poor or No signal strength.
Payment options; Their brochure mentions they accept credit cards-”Services Card Payments”- which unfortunately doesn't work out. I tried for two days to pay with my platinum credit card. “Machine” doesn't work they say! Swipe swipe swipe and “no connection”, “slow”. They called the bank-would you/me like to pay in cash? No! I'll try again tomorrow. Same story. Would you like to go to town and withdraw cash and pay that way? Not really. The problem is they don't want you to use a credit card. It costs them money. They don't have the “extra 3-5% charge” that many many places demand. That's not my fault. Raise your room rates to cover your bank charge IF that is your problem. Of course, that isn't the problem. Raise the rates and we're back to square one; they still want you to pay cash because it costs them money! Ridiculous! I went to town, got cash and paid them.
Their telephone, wi-fi and credit card connections need serious updating along with their computers. Of course they don't really care. It's management that is the problem. The employees are just doing their job!
Overall it is OK. I ate at the restaurant at night; limited choices for vegetarians. 5 days here. “We're” far from the bus station at Sunflowers Hotel. 4-5 kms they told me. Price of taxi to bus station will cost almost as much as next 4 hour bus ride north. Not much to see here unless renting a motorbike to explore. Relax and enjoy the lack of tourists. Still, though, we have the incessant honking by Vietnamese drivers. Beep beep!
