    Location 7.0 /10

    The establishment sits on the riverbank, some 200m from the shopping streets. It is surrounded by numerous riverside restaurants and the beach is 2.5 mi away and accessible by shuttle. Da-Nang airport is a 45 minute drive away.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The establishment's 94 bedrooms are divided among two-storied buildings. The first category of rooms, dubbed Superior, measure 35m², which is quite nice. The second, known as Junior Suites, cover 42m², which is even nicer. Occupants of the junior suites enter via the balcony that serves as an outdoor lounge, furnished with two benches and some cushions. Inside, there is a second lounge with a rattan armchair, a coffee table, and a desk. A few steps lead up to the bedroom, which is furnished with a large wardrobe with rattan doors. It contains a safe, a flat screen TV, and a mini bar with a tea and coffee tray. The setting is both warm and tasteful. The white walls, the bright colours of the cushions on the sofa and the bed, the perfectly thought out lighting, and the dark-wood furniture that blends in perfectly with the rest of the room contribute to creating a particularly warm atmosphere. The bathrooms vary depending on the room category. In the Superior room they are fitted only with a shower, whereas in the suite there is an integrated bathtub that can also be used as a shower. The result is absolutely splendid and tasteful. Another big difference is the view. If you are asked whether you prefer a view of the garden or the river, don't hesitate for one second, take the latter!

    Overview 8.45 /10

    Occupying a series of large houses painted in light pink, the hotel boasts a neo-colonial architectural style. Renovated in May 2008, it sits on the riverbank in a garden with traveller's trees and banana trees... a little corner of heaven in the heart of the city.
    There is a large, square-shaped infinity pool made out of stone. It's not very deep but it does include a paddling pool for children. Next to it you'll find a massage parlour and a bar, all that you need for a great holiday!

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    Under a magnificent timber structure, a large marble stairway that splits in two leads to the first floor and the main restaurant, where massive wooden tables, somewhat Swedish in style, are laid out under a high ceiling. The room opens out onto the river, and in the mornings and evenings when the sun hits the river in a special way, the view is just perfect. This is a happy coincidence since the restaurant opens only for breakfast and dinner. It serves refined cuisine that blends Vietnamese tastes with international dishes.
    From 10:00 pm till midnight, a colonial-style bar, with dark-wood tables, super comfortable armchairs with high backs, a parquet floor, a wooden ceiling fan, and black and white photos adorning the walls welcomes guests to sample its rich wine cellar and numerous international spirits. It also serves some simple dishes in the price range of £5 to £10. The terrace is also very enjoyable and board games are available to guests for friendly gatherings in an authentic setting.
    If you happen to feel a little peckish in the afternoon, it's time to pay a visit to the bakery, with its marble tables, chandelier, black-tiled floor, and ceiling mouldings. We were especially impressed with the quality of the coffee, the cream-stuffed pastries that really hit the spot with an herbal tea, and the delicious ice-creams, best appreciated on the terrace that affords a superb view. There is a desk with a computer and Internet access if you want to contact the people you left back home. And should you feel a little hungry in the middle of the afternoon, try the bakery, with its Provençal-style ceramic floor and a terrace looking out on the river. It serves all sorts of tasty pastries and there is a computer with Internet access available to guests.

      Despite its fantastic location, we were somewhat disappointed with this hotel, where the service and cuisine are really not up to par. This is quite a shame, as the hotel is ideally located, its rooms are pleasant, and it has a swimming pool.

      This is undoubtedly the trendiest hotel of the region, or of Vietnam, or even of the whole of Asia! The Nam Hai offers villas facing the sea that boast an uncommon level of luxury. There are 100 of these, strewn along half a mile of beach, all facing the sea. Half of them have their own private swimming pool, and the atmosphere and design are simply unbelievable. It is a pity then, that the standard of service and cuisine are not up to the incredible standards set by the establishment!

      The Van Loi is a small 3 star hotel and, although it is not much to look at, it is perfectly decent and boasts a swimming pool and a superb rooftop terrace. It is certainly worth checking out if you are trying to find somewhere with a swimming pool on a limited budget and aren't too picky!
