Besides the musty smell and suggest aromatherapy, you could not beat the location in proximity to the beach, restaurants and other conveniences. The manager and staff were always smiling and very helpful during my stay. I would do it again in a heart beat.
We rented the entire house for 7 of us 5 adults 2 teenagers. The house is as nice as the pictures look and the rooftop patio is an awesome place to chill and see the view overlooking the river. Old town is an easy walk and there are places right close by if you want to arrange a scooter rental or ride to the airport etc. We spent 5 nights here and it was great to have a home base for a bit to relax. We took some scooters and went to the beach which was probably only a 15 minute ride. Also, if you want some of the best pork buns in Vietnam there is a lady who sets up a stall about 40 steps from the front door. There is also a spa two doors down which is handy. If there is only one small drawback it would be the fact that the house is at the corner of an intersection and there are a lot of scooters that honk at the intersection starting at about 6:30 am. It bothered us the first night but we slept with the windows closed the next night and it was fine.Thanks to great fans and A/C in all the bedrooms. Overall it was great and a nice change from the hotels.
