4.5 Stars Hotel with Fantastic View”

Nice Clean Room, Good Bedding, Fantastic View

I've stayed at other Novotel hotels in Vietnam and this one is as good as the rest. Upon arrival, the staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful, the bell boy took out luggage to our room. First impression was everything at this hotel has the 4.5-5 stars feel to it. This place is definitely on par with western standards of a high end 5 star hotel. Since it was off season, we got a free upgrade to a room on a higher floor with the ocean view. Let me tell you, this room was phenomenon! The bathroom itself was probably as large as a room at a 3 star hotel. As for the rest of the room, the king bed was very comfortable, there's a balcony where you can just sit , relax, and gaze out at the ha long bay water. There's even a small lounging area with a mini couch and coffee table. Just below, you can see the swimming pool. We even had wifi internet issues, so they brought up a dedicated wifi router just for us to use! Very nice! Overall, this is probably one of the best hotels in ha long bay and I highly recommend it.

Spectacular View”

- spectacular view - great location - nice outdoor pool - great restaurant staff - great food in the hotel
- staff overpromised and under-delivered - food in the hotel was expensive (ie. a bowl of pho was US$6) - front desk staff spoke English, but not that well

On our first day in Ha Long Bay, the front desk staff recommended a restaurant for dinner and told us it did not require reservations. We passed by on our tour through the city and thought we'd check out the menu. Menu looked fine, but when we tried to make reservations, the restaurant informed us that it was fully booked. Once back at the hotel after our walk, we informed the front desk staff that the restaurant was fully booked and if they could recommend another restaurant to us. They did and we walked there and found out it was fully booked. We were at this point in time tired and hungry and found a local eatery which served us well. Upon our return to the hotel after dinner, we informed the front desk staff that once again their recommendation was fully-booked. We asked them to make reservations for us for the following night at the first recommended restaurant since we quite liked the menu. They said they would, but never made the reservation nor did anyone get back to us to inform us that the reservation was not made. We asked the front desk once again the following morning if our reservation was made, and no one seemed to know what was going on. They tried to make the reservation for us, but told us that no one was picking up the phone at the restaurant. To be honest, not being able to make reservations for us at a restaurant really wasn't that big of a deal, but not getting back to us or being able to come up with an alternative, definitely irritated my wife and I. The conceirge seemed confused when I asked him about booking a trip to Ha Long Bay on a boat. After speaking to three other members of the front desk staff, I finally found someone who understood what I wanted to book. Once we actually got the hotel to book our cruise, I must say that the 6-hour private cruise in Ha Long Bay was very nice and the scenary was stunning! I do want to comment on the room itself. The room is very modern with a stunning view of the bay. A nice mounted

ok... i have tried every single hotel in halong bai bai chai and halong city. i know everything about the hsitory of novotel here and hows its managed. it was built to be a 5 star, but they couldnt in the end so its a 4 star. as ive said before, you can call it a 4.5 star hotel. the price is great and the rooms are comftable with good internet connection. the views are nice and staff are helpful. you are only about 200,000 dong away from halong city, and minutes walking to the bai chai beach and market area. having stayed at every hotel this is the best hotel in the area. the only other 2 hotels that are comparable in comfort and price that i would reccomend is saigon halong hotel and halong plaza hotel. make sure you ask for a sea view room when you check in, normally you always do anyway. dont stay in hotels on a boat, why would you want to do that and be stuck on it unless your doing nothing else but relax and happy to eat from the floating seafood market. novotel is just simply "comftable" for everything you want to do in halong bay. key feature - the bathroom. its difficult to find decent showers in vietnam, here you will feel like home

clean and comfortable rooms and beds

Having stayed and been disappointed at other so-called 5-star hotels prior to this in Hanoi and Haiphong, Novotel Ha Long Bay definitely outshines its competitors in Vietnam in terms of facilities and service. It lives up to its 5-star rating globally and here at Ha Long Bay, it is even more important to stay in a comfortable hotel to fully enjoy our getaway from urban cities.

we spent one night at the novotel before departing on a ha long bay cruise the next day. this hotel is lovely in all aspects. the location is near to the public beach, plenty of restaurants and tourist shopping (night market) all within a short walk. if i were staying for a week in ha long i think there are likely less expensive options in the same area, but if youre looking for the premier 4 star hotel of the area this is definately the one. would stay again and do recommend. the staff was all smiles and very helpful, enjoyed chatting with 'long' the bartender at the pool area.

Beautiful rooms and lovely staff”

Location and views are sensational

we stayed here for one night before our ha long bay cruise. the rooms are magnificent and the staff are very helpful. the hard wood floors and the warm colours, the big comfortable bed and spacious room, the fantastic bathroom, and waking up to the views of a misty ha long bay was brilliant. the bathrobes were very comfortable. the location is great, it's right across the road from a ferry terminal. our ferry terminal was on the other side of the peninsula, but we knew that, so that was fine. we checked in late and discovered that there was not a lot of food options closeby, so we ate in the bar downstairs which was great. the pizza is wonderful. great hotel, great location, great room, throughly enjoyable experience.

Good hotel experience”

The spa was very good, room was spacious

Enjoyed the experience staying at Novotel Ha Long Bay. Especially enjoyed the Spa Massage service, except that it could have extended its service hours beyond 10pm since we normally finish dinner at around 9pm. The fruits in the rooms were not too delicious (dragon fruit was not riped). Overall, good experience. Nothing too much to complain about.

best hotel in ha long bay”

Has all the facilities youd expect from a western hotel!

checked into the "the star" hotel in ha long, it was so bad, i check out immediately and came to novatel again. a 5 star vietnamese run hotel is comparable to a 2 star western hotel. so the 4 star novotel is a huge level up from any hotel in the bay area. in fact this hotel was meant to be a 5 star hotel, but they couldnt do it, so you can say its a 4.5 star hotel. in room menu is affordable also!

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Novotel Ha Long Bay after an overnight cruise on Halong Bay. Compared to the congestion of Hanoi it was wonderful. Lots of changes there, I expect we won't recognize Ha Long when we return in a couple of years.

Beautiful 5 star hotel with wonderful view”

Friendly staff, beautiful hotel, great service

最少50個字It is best hotel in Halong Bay (of coz also the most expensive one). It's no doubt that it is a 5-star hotel: with polite and friendly staff, great service, nice room ...etc We were first arranged to stay in room 901, the room is just above the kitchen and the view is blocked. It is noisy and smelly, therefore, we asked the staff to give us another room. Then we were arranged to stay in room 905 which is much much better. With beautiful view on Halong Bay and quiet. I like that room! The hotel is next to the beach so you can just walk there and enjoy the sea. Although the price is pretty high compared with other hotels in halong bay, if you would like to stay in the best hotel in Halong Bay, that must be the one.

Top class”

Helpful staff, lovely view and balcony, great food that was reasonably priced, Tours easy to organise.

We had some trouble with our taxi driver on the way from Hanoi airport to Halong Bay. The manager from the hotel came down when we arrived and on our behalf sorted the driver out and was more helpful to us than our own embassy. We are very grateful. The Novotel Halong is rated as the number one hotel in the bay and I can quite honestly say it lives up to this standard. The spa was one of the best I went to and the manicure and pedicure I had were a1 standard. There is no where else I would have stayed compared to the Novotel.

Huge room with best view of Ha long Bay”

The best view, huge room with huge bathroom, very modern
None

our room was facing ha long bay and it was the best view of the bay all day. the sunset that we saw was very romantic. the room was really big and modern, and has huge bathroom with separate tab. the variety kind of food served for breakfast and it was so tasty. the only concern that i have to make is that there is not many place to eat or see around the hotel or even town.

High Class Hotel for great price”

The rooms are beautiful and well appointed
No wifi in the rooms

Another couple and ourselves spent a wonderful night in this hotel before crusing on Ha Long Bay. The rooms were wonderful with a lovely bathroom and shower. The views of Ha Long were from all rooms that I could tell- what a way to wake up! Only probelm was that we didnt have time to enjoy the other facilities. Two nights would have been better.

Wow. This is the only choice.”

Beautiful hotel, big well appointed rooms with amazing rooms. Great food too!

we arrived after a 3 hour drive from hanoi to a welcome sight. the novotel is only 2 years old and much care has been taken in its design and interior. the lobby is stunning. the staff were great. really helpful. the breakfasts were a wonderful way to start our days of touring and they were up to the standard that we have come to expect from novotel in hong kong. the rooms facing the bay are amazing each with its own balcony.

Breakfast, hotel staff, hotel cleanliness

Good , but would not recommend booking more than 3 nights( we booked 7). Not because of hotel but because of Ha Long Bay as nothing go do outside of hotel once you have seen the islands. Very , very quiet resort but hotel was good. Expensive for Vietnam as well. Staff very friendly and helpful . Nice view from balcony but balcony no furtniture and quite small.
