6/10 Good

It was ok at first. I was treated well and staff was responding to my needs. At the end that all changed. Receptionist was rude, non helping and very frustrated to my questions. All I asked was for a grab to a destination. All she says I don't understand you over and over. She spoke English to other Guest. Hmm something is not wright here. Was I glad I left of course. Why would I want to deal with psycho staff. Would I come back...Ahhh NOPE....

Great stay
We had a great stay. The private room and shower was modern and spacious. The staff are young, energetic and very helpful. The area is very central for shopping, nightlife and restaurants. We recommend this hotel and will be back if we visit Vietnam again.
