    The staffs are very friendly and helpful, couldn't ask for more. Thumbs up to them!! The rate is reasonable and most importantly is very strategic. The lobby is cozy to hang out if you would like to relax yourself.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The property is in a very convenient location for sightseeing. The room was simple but clean and comfortable. Overall would recommend. Breakfast was nice - we had pho but you can also choose eggs and bacon.

    Hi, we don't have pick-up service at the moment due to many reasons. And we don't sell tour also but there's a good travel agent next to our hotel (The Sinh Tourist) that offers many tours. Regards, Bo.
