Quirky with a spacious balcony
20 Ha Long Rd, Bai Chay, Ha Long City T: (033) 846 137 F: (033) 846 137
This place stands out from the pack on Hotel Alley because -- it isn't.
It's on Ha Long Road a little east of Vuon Dao Street, up a steep slope off the main road. The reception area is a bit dark and foreboding, but it's brighter upstairs, with some rooms opening off an open-air terrace area. Rooms at the front have a sea view and a spacious outside area with table and chairs, just perfect for that sundowner. You could pick up a similar room for $5 or so less on Vuon Dao Street, but you're paying for the view and terrace and it may just be worth the extra dong.
