    How do 2 star hotels compare with world standards?

    can anyone tell me about the Spring House Hotel in HCMC, the Hoa Linh Hotel in Saigon, The Light Hotel in Nhatrang. Would you go for a two or three star hotel in Vietnam?

    Dear Crispyrolls

    The hotel we are booked in at is the Spring House Hotel. What else can you tell me about it?

    Clean, tidy? Are the rooms quite large?

    Still very uncertain about two or three star hotels in Vietnam. I am desperately looking at some feedback. How do these hotels compare with western hotels size and cleanliness wise?

    2* can be very nice, but like anywhere, it varies considerably. I like the small 2* guesthouses very much. In Saigon the Bich Duyen Hotel is fantastic/best hotel manager in Indochina (he's fast becoming a legend - name of Chanh) - I paid $25. for a window room/no lift.

    In Hanoi I insist on staying at the Gia Thinh Hotel because the service, room, food, location are all the very best. I paid $30. for a superior rear room. The Gia has a lift and the rooms all have new DSL computers. - my favorite of all Viet hotels. I'm booked for 8 more nights in March '09.

    Most of these places can be contacted directly by email, they pick up at the airport/train station for a small fee, about 90% provide a free breakfast, and a much friendlier atmosphere than big cold 4-5* places.

    One could literally eat off the floor of both of the hotels mentioned above. At the Bich Duyen, they insist you remove your shoes in the lobby.
