Den Long Do Hotel 3 * (Vietnam / Nha Trang): reviews
Vietnam attracts tourists from all over the world for its natural resources, exotic cuisine, developed infrastructure of hotels and sightseeing tours. Season for the sea holiday here lasts the whole year, from May to September, the cost of tours is much cheaper than in other months, and tourists are several times less. However, it is better to avoid trips to the central part of the country from May to September, there is a chance to catch hurricanes. The Vietnamese rainy season falls at different times in each region and is not as bad as it is shown on TV - the rains are really strong, but they last no more than half an hour. The best sign that predicts rain, you can call the behavior of local residents: if they begin to hide the goods from the shelves and wear raincoats - from minute to minute will be precipitation. A significant disadvantage of the country for our countrymen can be called its geographical location, to fly there from Russia for a long time and expensively. Nevertheless, the Russians are more and more often sent for new impressions in this extraordinary country.

About the quarter where the hotel is located, and the locals

Den Long Do Hotel 3 * is located in the Vietnamese quarter, which has a positive effect on pricing in cafes, restaurants, shops and shopping centers - everything is designed for the local, so it is very accessible. The situation is different in the European quarter of Nha Trang - prices are several orders higher there. Service in the catering most travelers find excellent: portions are large, cooked delicious, again, affordable prices. Tourists recommend to eat in such places: "Grill House", "Margarita", "Rock Cafe".

In general, travelers are advised not to be afraid to take risks and try different dishes in order to enjoy Vietnamese cuisine as much as possible.
Most holidaymakers are impressed by the color of life of local people, which in this quarter is presented in full view. That only is morning exercises performed by groups of 40-60 Vietnamese under the guidance of an instructor in the early morning! There are a sufficient number of tourists who find it unpleasant to watch unsanitary conditions in the markets, unkempt Vietnamese, even rats and cockroaches. In the evening there is no entertainment in the quarter, you need to go to the European quarter after them or walk about 20 minutes

Those who drive around the city are always opened by the hotel employee's car door.
The work of hotel guides from tour operators
There is no unambiguous opinion of the guests at the expense of the staff of tour operators responsible for a comfortable stay at the hotel.
