average hotel

pretty far from backpacker's district
6.3
the hotel is located quite far from the backpacker's area to my surprise, although i was misled to believe that it was within that district from a glance at the map. it turned out that the distance between the hotel and the backpacker's district was at least 15-30 mins' walk. and when i eventually reached the hotel, i was told that it was fully occupied despite having booked on agoda earlier on. not a good start to my holiday it seemed, but thankfully the hotel gladly arranged a room for me at another hotel that was affiliated with this. and the consolation is, i was booked into a hotel that was much more centrally located.

Pictures aren't what we saw...

Fast check in, fast check out, the name and hight ceillings!

It was noisy inside and out side, the room was very small, the breakfast not good and missing about everythings, WIFI above our room door wasn't working so we had to use slow other floor WIFI, staff scriming at each others in the hallway, the cleaning girls are living the rooms keys on top of the towels in a small unlucked hallway cabinet, the room safe was not attach, we don't see any of the three stars at this hotel and we got at many hotels in Vietnam...
