For what you pay, this hotel is reasonable. The staff were friendly though offered some incorrect advice. The rooms were adequate, but nothing special. I think the free breakfast gave me food poisoning, so avoid that.
Standard room was too small for two single guys. Upgraded to a bigger room. Requested a room fan and staff gave us their main one from lobby with no hesitation. Fan was to help circulate the AC better.
There is hardly anything to find fault with the hotel. Location is good and staff is very friendly and helpful. Only complaint is the hotel is not able to provide breakfast. Will not hesitate to book this hotel for next visits if breakfast is included with the stay.
Nice modern hotel. Comfortable rooms, clean, great aircon, large delicious breakfast. Only down side was location. It is about a 15min walk to the market and other areas of interest. I would absolutely stay here again.
"A quiet option right next to the backpacker area"
If you're looking for an affordable place to stay that's near all the tour operators and the action of Bui Vien street, this is not a bad option. It's tucked away behind all the nightlife so it's actually quite quiet. There is a nice lobby and an elevator for convenience.
The room finishings are nice enough, but I would say the biggest problem is that the bathroom window is open to the outside - so the heat seeps into the room all day and night. The air conditioning unit cannot keep up, so the room stays quite hot unless you get creative about blocking the air flow.
