If you absolutely had to be in Hai Phong which has nothing to offer I guess the location was as good as many others . The hotel its self may once long ago have been ok . Now it has had little maintenance , lights , toilet flush broken .NO HOT WATER , EVER . Mattress like concrete . The amenities claimed such as restaurant ., spa sauna , various English language news tv programs , no longer exist .No staff , bar Ms Huong , who is fabulous & does her best in difficult circumstances , spreak any English at all . Hotel policy is to keep a day of rent even though we left because of poor facilities. The hotel is vastly overpriced for the standards they keep . KEEP LOOKING .
