Mithrin Hotel Ha Long Halong Bay Reviews
Giant room around the corner from the center Jul 07, 2013
The Mithrin hotel is a first class hotel on the main boulevard of Bai Chay, around the corner from the shopping and restaurant street. It is located about 3 km from the building from where the boats leave for the cruises on Halong Bay.
It's a high rise hotel and we received a spacious room on the eight floor. Room 801 is a triple with two proper twin beds and a rollaway bed. We used the spare bed to store our luggage, but there's also a low table to store bags on.
There's a corner with two armchairs and a table and a desk with flat screen tv and kettle with coffee and tea. Furthermore there's a safe, bathrobes in the closet and there are disposable slippers available too.
The bathroom is really spacious and has a large corner bath tub with proper shower head and plenty of pressure on the water. There are plenty of toiletries as well as a hair dryer.
On the second floor there is the swimming pool and day spa. The pool is very small, but does have a separate children's section. At the spa you can get a massage or use the sauna, jacuzzi or gym. A foot massage sets you back 175.000 VND (about 6,5€) while a full body massage is 325.000 VND.
Next to the reception, there is the a la carte restaurant with both Vietnamese and Western dishes. Prices are reasonable for being at a hotel and the crepes Suzette are really delicous. The burger we had was only so-so, but acceptable since it is not the native cuisine here.
Breakfast is served in the function room on the first floor and exists of a buffet with both Vietnamese and Western items. A chef cooks up the eggs and there is again toast, bread and jam, cereal and fresh fruit. But there are also pancakes with honey and freshly baked donuts. The Western items are well catered for here.
It's probably more fun to spend the night on a boat in Ha Long Bay, but if you need to stay nearby the town, the hotel is very much recommendable.
