    i had read somwhere that you couldnt have vietnamese woman in your hotel room -- is that in fact true--the local police harass you and come into your room to enforce it

    The law is that unmarried Vietnamese couples cannot share a hotel room and the same goes if one of the parties is a foreigner. Of course not all places obey the law -- it generally depends on the place you're staying.

    Don't stay in big hotels if you don't like that law. Anything goes in the small family own hotels...remember money talks in Vietnam :)

    so some hotels have policy like: if you have friend who is woman, they have to leave your room before 11pm,because it is police policy.

    It's before 10pm actually and yes, it is not only Police policy...it's the law.

    But you will find some hotels, usually mini hotels, aren't so strict but go up market and it just isn't the done thing! In a lot of hotels it's the policy that any visitor has to wait downstairs and are not allowed into the guest's room.

    But you'll find the cheaper hotels, but not all, don't seem to be so strict with this rule during the day time. At least that's been my experience. :-) If they do allow the visitor into the room, usually they will require that visitor to register and keep hold of their form of ID while there.

    It's not a problem if you're both foreigners as far as I'm aware but it is if you are a foreigner and the lady is a Vietnamese. All to do with control of prostitution etc. Nothing worse than having the Police banging on the door.
