Built in 2013, the 28-room, nine-floor Happy Days is difficult to find fault with.

Staff are fun and friendly and rooms are comfortable, clean and modern, with every home comfort from air-con through to hairdryers. The feature-wall wallpaper is a bit loud and beds are dripping in Happy Day Hotel silk accessories, but at least you won't forget the name of your hotel after a big night out on Bach Dang Street. Standards come with a viewless window, so unusually you get a bit of natural daylight in the cheaper rooms; superiors and deluxes overlook the river and all rooms come with a modern ensuite with good water pressure. Breakfast is rightfully raved about with rich pickings from a menu of French/Western favourites and an incredible local mi quang (shrimp, pork, wide flat noodles) all served in the river-facing ninth floor restaurant.
