Great staff, couldn't have been more helpful. Great location in the heart of D1. Room had everything we needed. Only thing that didn't run perfectly was breakfast where this only 1 member of staff making breakfast for all the guests so you may have to go up early if on a trip etc I would definitely stay again and would recommend .


All are new. Friendly staff, good location, nice breakfast

we wrote them that we arrive at 6.30 in the morning (sleeperbus) and it says on their profile 24h service. Everything was shut down when we arrived and we had to wait in a sandwich-store nearby for 2h. When checked in, staff was friendly and helpful, the double room is really nice and cozy, breakfast is egg and bread as almost everywhere in Vietnam.
