Good boutique property. Very little amenities. Didn't receive any indication of Expedia vip benefits. None offered. Good price for stay, nice clean hotel.

The hotel has a beautiful old vintage library theme all around. the location is in an alley so it's not facing a main avenue which makes it quieter that other locations. It's not close to the city center, mostly closer to the airport but if you need a place away from the downtown core noise this is perfect, besides taxis are cheap in Vietnam. The staff is very helpful, always available, providing tips on where the food places are at, where to exchange money, etc.

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities

It is quirky and based on a bookshelf theme. Staff ate excellent and very helpful. car from the airport worked very well. Just make sure you are at the International terminal for pick up. However the room (which was above the basic category) did not live up to expectations. the room was dingy having little natural light and the furniture was make shift. It was all coloured black which made the room even darker. i was inly here for a night Had i been here for longer I would have asked to change. Hotel is midway between the airport and the city centre. because traffic is so bad it takes 30 mins to either. If you are on a budget take the bus. It takes little longer than a taxi and the service is frequent. Download the Grab app for a reliable taxi service where you won't get ripped off.

This hotel was absolutely wonderful. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They really went above and beyond to ensure our stay was pleasant and we especially appreciated the small personal touches the staff offered. The location is great and the hotel rooms are extremely clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the city! Thank you so much for a great stay.
