A bit of character
We like Hoa Phuong Hotel.
We’re not sure if it was the smiley petite woman carrying around a toddler who showed us the room, or the rooms themselves that won us over, but either way the rooms are a solid choice. Those at the front have sea views – though not so great from the lowest floor – viewed through windows with wooden shutters adding character. Beds are firm and decor is nothing to write home about, but the bathrooms are well tiled albeit basic. It’s not the cheapest seafront option but it’s an option. Inside rooms are cheaper.
