The location of the hotel was very convenient. For the price charged, it is a reasonable deal. I gave it 3/5 because we saw a cockroach in the room. Also, they didn’t have breakfast 1 day and told us to order in the room. The whole order was wrong, food was cold, and it was not satisfying. The other 2 days, breakfast was nice and simple.

Great hotel in great location, outstanding staff
Just stayed for a week at the Santa Barbara hotel. The hotel is just north of the Old Quarter, about a 20 min casual stroll from the north end of Hoam Kiem lake. We are a family of four and were very comfortable in a 'family room' with three single beds (2 of these are king singles and my wife and I had no trouble sleeping in one). The room faced Hung Bun and was quiet - the sound insulation in the hotel is very effective. The restaurant downstairs is casual and relaxing, food and staff were great. The menu is Western style so we generally ate breakfast there (good Pho) and ate elsewhere for other meals, but we had several lunch or evening meals there all of which were very reasonably priced and yummy. The staff were exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. Language was no problem for non-Vietnamese speakers. Plenty of power-points, good TV, good aircon, plenty of fresh bedding and towels. Laundry service was efficient and inexpensive, mini-bar was great and inexpensive. There was no iron in the room but I am sure we could have had one if we had asked. There were renovations going on during our stay so I am sure the facilities will continue to improve.

제 방만 그랬을지 모르겠지만 엘리베이터 옆 방이라 그런지 오지게 씨끄시끄러웠어요. 복도에서 말하는 사람 딕션이 그대로 문을 뚫고 들어옵니다. 8시-10시 사이에 청소아주머니들이 오나봐요. 이분들 말 드럽게 많습니다. Hㅏ.. 방이랑 방 사이 소음은 별로 안 나요. 복도에서 떠들면 그게 그대로 귀에 꽂힐 뿐 나머지는 마음에 듭니다^^ 근데 화장실 샤워기나 수건걸이가 왜그렇게 높이 있는지 모르겠어요. 샤워기가 구려서 물줄기가 한 방향으로 나오지 않습니다. 위치가 짱 좋아요. 리셉션도 친절합니다. 새벽 3시에 도착했는데 로비 불이 꺼져있어서 당황했지만 리셉션 바닥에서 주무시고 계시더라고요.
