Whilst the foyer is shiny and sparkly, and the porter will carry your bags, the rest of the hotel leaves a lot to be desired. Don't get me wrong, our room was immaculate, the bed super comfy, and the shower had water pressure to jet you to the moon(!), the location was right in the middle of a dead zone. With nothing much at all surrounding the hotel, it's the perfect place to be if you don't want to leave your room. We were in one of the villas, a short hike up the steep driveway from the main hotel. When the road is wet, be cautious as the ground becomes slippery! There is no view of the bay from the villa as it is surrounded by large trees. The pool is nice, cool, which is better than our other pools at other hotels. Nobody around which is both positive and negative. There is aparrently a pool bar, however no vibe, or staff to be seen, so didn't get to have a drink by the pool which was what I wanted. The restaurant provides a buffet breakfast, which is good to fill up, but not great for the food is very 'bulk cooking' style. And my tip, because the hotel is used for many conferences, go for breakfast close to 9am, or else you have to fight for a table land fight for food!!! Not a bad place, just bad location. For what we wanted anyway.
The hotel itself is stunning. We had a lovely time in our villa which was clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and accomodating and the pool was beautiful! However We did find ourselves a bit too far away from the action. We are a young couple interested in food and a quiet drink but found it hard to find anywhere local as all of the surrounding buildings were also hotels. So if you're looking to be in the middle of things I wouldn't recommend it but if you're wanting a quiet place to sit and be still for a few days then this is your place. There is also a lack of convenience stores around so make sure you stock up on beverages and food because room service didn't seem to be an option in the villas.
Check in was quick and efficient with our bags being taken to our room. Room was very large with great views across the bay ( but be warned building work is taking place so the views might be obscured ) Bed was very large and comfortable with good quality linen. Bathroom was large with all the necessary toiletries. Plenty of storage space with robes and slippers. Aircon was cool and very quite. Room was very quiet and provided a good night's sleep. Breakfast was good and catered for most tastes. Evening meal was equally good with a broad selection of both Asian and Western dishes. Wine and drinks prices were reasonable. Position of this hotel is a little way out of the main Halong town area, but a 5 minute taxi ride is all it takes. Big question would I stay here again? Yes without a doubt.
We stayed here for one night in one of the villas. There are several rooms in the villa. The rooms was very clean and quiet. Service was great and the breakfast had a lot to offer like omelets and pancakes and noodles ofcourse. The hotel is very close to Halong Park where there are several cafes and bars, and also very close to the beach. Near the hotel you can find nam phong coffe, great restaurant and cafe.
I have used spa services in this hotel, I did massage. When I came to spa I paid for receptionist full price. After she have called the therapist. When therapist came she looks like after deep sleep. She started doing massage. Massage was terrible. With one hand she was doing massage with another she was cleaning her eyes... Therapist 3 times left the room during the treatment and left me alone on the bed... And I was shocked when after massage she started to terrorize me to give tips:))) she did not let me out from the room... she even has laminated A4 paper with sentence that we need to leave tips and was pointing with finger and showing me:)) after she have called another therapist and they started together to attack me. At the end I left $2 and they started lough that it is too little amount... First in my live I had this type of experience...
Restaurant food menu choice is very limited and very average in quality.Restaurant on top floor was lovely for an evening meal. but the bedroom itself was good! The staff were all great! We would stay here again
We only stayed one night prior to going on river cruise. Hotel is large. With nice clean decor. Rooms spacious. Bed huge. Bathroom good. Staff helpful. Hotel seems to cater for large coach parties which meant breakfast was like a cattle market. Restaurant on top floor was lovely for an evening meal. Outdoor pool looked nice. Opposite hotel there appears to be a lot of building work going on which I hope will not affect the beautiful views. We would stay here again although I think taxi is needed to get around as hotel is set back from main attractions.
We stayed at Saigon Halong hotel every year when visited the famous Halong bay for 1 or 2 nights.Good location, good servise, beatiful garden and clean pool. can recomend room pool and sea view on the 9 or 10 floor-fantastic view of Halong bay! Buffet breakfast is excellent-vietnamese and western food in Panorama restaurant on the top floor and with wonderful panorama view of the beatiful bay ! My family definitely enjoyed our stay at Saigon hotel! Silva, Ilcho, Nadya and Delyan, from Sofia, Bulgaria
Not the best for solo travel hotel. This hotel caters for large tourist crowds. They arrive in buses. Restaurant food menu choice is very limited and very average in quality. I stayed in chalet, felt like an abandoned house but the bedroom itself was good! The staff were all great!
Stayed here for the night a couple of days ago with my husband. We stayed in a Villa behind the hotel - it I must say it's the worse hotel room I've stayed in. The walk to the villa is uphill - staff made no effort to help with our large bags (I've just recovered from a broken ankle so it was a struggle). In addition light up the hill and behind the hotel is terrible so you can hardly see a thing after 7pm. The room was basic and dusty looking. The double bed was two beds joined together and the mattress was rock solid. The bathroom was tiny and when I ran a bath the water was a dirty yellow colour. And to make matters worse outside the room the play a high pitched animal buzzing sound to keep animals away but it's so loud you can hear it in your room. Last thing, the hotel reception smells of stale cigars! I would not return to this hotel very disappointing.
