Great choice, very good value

What we say: 3.5 stars

The Bright Lotus Guesthouse is in a fabulous location, if you don't mind the noise of the traffic, just across from the National Museum and behind the FCC. It has spotless rooms with air-con, TV, private bathrooms with hot water and shared verandas that are a nice place to stand and look out over the city, with museum and the park in front of it. The porches however are not large or nice enough to spend any time lounging on. Across the street is Fortune Pho and a few doors down is the popular D's Books chain, selling cheap photocopied versions of popular books. Staff are friendly, with good English proficiency and willingness to help you navigate the city. We've had a couple of reports of them not answering queries by email, so if you're after a reservation, you may need to telephone them. Because of its proximity to so many popular tourist sites, the tuk tuk drivers hanging out on the corner here tend to be extra aggressive and quote inflated prices, so walk away for a bit to secure a fair price.
