Is there a hotel that's affordable, close to the lake, not in the dead centre of the Old Quarter, that's comfortable, well run, and doesn't participate in the frenzy for tourist dollars? Yes, there is. Now under a new name (it was Tien Thuy Hotel on our first visit) this gem still delivers. Friendly, English-speaking staff will show you room after room after room, and while there are just the three price grades, no two rooms seem quite the same. One we saw had a cathedral ceiling inlaid with terracotta tiles and exposed beams. Standard (‘superior') rooms are small but adequate and rooms at the front have balconies. Bathrooms are large and rooms come with air-con and TV. Hang Thung Street is quite untouristed, so the place has more of a local feel than those just a block or two north.
