Vietnam Trip 2008: Hotels
Granted one would not really spend much time awake at hotels during vacations but its really important to have a comfortable place to return to after a long day of walking and exploring! So here are the hotels that i had the pleasure of visiting during the short tour.
We spent our first night at Dalat’s Thien An Hotel
Thien An Hotel
Address: 272A Phan Dinh Phung, Dalat, Vietnam
Tel: (84-63)520607 – 520608
Fax : (84-63)825383
Easily the best hotel experienced during the trip! Nice rooms with art decor adding to the classy ambience. The place is very cosy but it can be pretty noisy when the sun is up due to the hotel being beside a rather busy road. Your mornings will be greeted with a scrumptious all you can eat style breakfast consisting of a table full with fruits, bread, beverages, and eggs done the way you like. Always helpful owner will help you arrange for the main tourist activity which is the Easy Rider bike tour.
Over at Nha Trang we stopped over at Ha Van Hotel
Ha Van Hotel
Address: 3/2 Tran Quang Khai St., Nha Trang City
Tel: 058.525 454 – 521 678
Fax: 058.521 700
A large hotel complete with a lift, spacious lobby and rooms with bathtubs. French owner likes to decorate the lobby, i last saw them adding mandarin lanterns to the ceiling. Breakfast is provided for a price, we didn’t try it as the owner recommended a handful of excellent nearby eateries. Main activity here would be the Boat Tour.
Ngoc Linh Hotel at Ho Chi Minh was our last hotel before heading home
Ngoc Linh Hotel
Address: 283/21 Pham Ngu Lao St., Dist 1 Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Tel: (84.8)8375159 – 9207874
This hotel is a bit harder to find as you will have to take a turn off the main road into a narrow small street. Footware will need to be taken off at the lobby before heading up to your room. Its quiet and peaceful here the whole day. On the other side of the street is the Blue River Hotel where we were planning to stay but they didn’t manage to reserve any rooms for us.
