Lovely stay right on the river front ”

We enjoyed our lovely huge room at Carambola that was cleaned daily including fresh towels The owner picked us up at 4am after getting off the sleeper bus and provided us with a tent until our room was ready The pancakes for breakfast were yummy! They helped us book a fantastic tour and the bus to Hue nothing was too much trouble Very friendly staff and lovely clean environment Laundry service was fab too Would stay again if we return to Phong Nha Not much vegetarian option for lunch/dinner so we just walked to the town and ate there which wasn't a problem 😊

Great stay at Carambola”

We are a couple in our mid-20s who stayed two nights at Carambola. One night before we did a 2D1N caving adventure and one night afterwards. We loved our stay here. Our first night was New Years Eve and Mr. Ha, the wonderful owner, invited all the guests to a barbecue dinner. The food was delicious and it was fun to chat with him and the other guests. We had two great breakfasts and loved being able to use the laundry service when we returned from our caving trek. It was so nice to have clean clothes the next morning! We also had great advice to book a trip to Paradise Cave and Phong Nha Cave which included airport transfer the day we left. Thank you for the great hospitality, recommendations and accommodation!

Something a little different - a great stay”

Overall a great stay where we were very well looked after - would recommend. We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon in Vietnam. Our plane landed at 17:35 in Dong Hoi and we were collected by the owner, Ha. He had a very nice, comfortable car and was very friendly and chatty. The drive took around an hour and we were then shown into our bungalow. The bungalows have been built in the last year so are very modern, clean and tidy, with good air con and a broadband router for each bungalow so the signal is fantastic. We arrived late at night and were out for a tour the whole next day, so we didn't get to see too much of the surroundings. However what we did see was lovely. It is right on the riverside and you can sit and eat with lovely views. We would recommend a riverside view bungalow if you are staying for any length of time as the morning views would be lovely. All of the service we received was amazing. It was very tranquil and they were able to provide for your ever

Best view and quite place”

This bungalow was absolutely recommended. Seems to be newly built and the place was clean. The bungalow equipped with private bathroom inside and many bungalows in Phong Nha has not private bathroom and rather expensive if has it. The location is a bit far from the center you may have to walk 20mins. But the great view make up for it. I loved to see the amazing sunset view on the balcony. The owner is very kind and greeted me with smile all the times. Just been a week now but missing this place already.

The place is beautiful, just like the picture. The bed is comfortable to sleep. Their food is also delicious and cheap. But it is a little bit far to central of Phong Nha, they have free bicycle for you, we ride it to Phong Nha Cave to take the boat. You can also ask them to take you from Phong Nha central when you arrived.

Nice set of bungalows on the river”

We stayed here for three nights in December. Our bungalow was large, clean and cheap. The hotel is set on the river bank with a nice view of the mountains. It’s a little bit of a distance from the main street but it is a short cycle on the free bikes. They’re a little rickety but get the job done. Staff were helpful, especially with booking cave tours and transport to/from the train station in Dong Hoi.

What an amazing place!”

We stayed for 3 nights in the river view bungalow and would highly recommend it! We were given a tent when we arrived at 4am and a driver collected us from the village (which many places would not do) We ate breakfast lunches and dinners here with amazing views and all were very nice. We also enjoyed Vietnamese wine from reception which was the equivalent of €3.64!!! One night they had none and ordered some to be delivered for us:) I could go on and on about our stay here. Our only regret was not staying longer, we tried to extend our stay but unfortunately and understandably every bungalow was booked up. We also booked a cave tour through them at a great price. There is also free push bikes and scooters available to rent at reception.

Great riverside location. Friendly owners”

These bungalows are in a great location right next to the river. It’s a bit of a stretch to walk into town, but the owners will loan you free pushbikes every day and evening. Recommended to save the legs. Great breakfast at low cost and very friendly owners and staff. We had a huge bungalow which could have accommodated 6 or 8, just for the 2 of us. Checked in early at no extra cost - many thanks to owners for this. Be warned that the plumbing is a bit ‘agricultural’ but everything worked and plenty of hot water. Overall, we would definitely recommend.

If your nationality is not Vietnam, you should choose this hotel. But if you are Vietnamese, also take it :D because every single thing you need for a stay, it’s all here. I can feel how much love the owner put in every detail in the room, especially the lights, oh i love the style of each light here. The owner and his staffs are friendly and super supportive. So talk to them before your trip for helpful recommendations. 👍 I am solo traveller so just a note for those who are the same, it takes 15mins to the town so if you want more entertainment at night, try to ask someone to go with you as the street is too dark at night.

We were due to arrive at 4am and Ha was waiting for us.... and was still smiling when our bus finally got in around 10!! From that moment, he & his staff were super accommodating & made our river-frontage stay so special. It’s worth being a bit out of town, waking up to the river is just amazing. Their push bikes & food menu could do with a bit of a revamp, but all in all, we loved our stay & would go back in a snip!! Thanks Ha; it was awesome!

One of the best we've stayed in North and Central Vietnam”

We stayed in 6 accom thru'out our 2 wk hol. This is our 2nd best. Not a fair comparison as our best is in danang. Travelling with 3 young children, we are very particular on type and quality of accom. We felt really comfy in this accom. The room is well kept that i don't feel the need for my children to wear their slippers in the room. Unlike some other accom we stayed in. Pics shown of their rooms are true and accurate. The male staff (probably the one in charge) is very polite and approachable. Satisfied with the female staff as well, just that they are not so well versed in english. So if you need anything, it's better to talk to the guy there. As the room is upstairs, it's quite a struggle if you have many luggages or heavy luggages But the male staff helped us with it. Beds are comfy with thick blankets. No heaters or heated beds but room feels warm and cosy even thou it's winter. Very happy with the HOT showers. Food wise, average. Abit far to walk to town but walkable.

Best in the area”

This place advertised as a homestay kind of facility, but the quality is a legit hotel. It’s got killer view of the river, very nice amenities, extremely comfortable bed, the owner Ha was an extremely warm and loving person. They provided laundry service at a very low cost, and advice to tour the lovely, scenic surroundings. Their food though, wasn’t the best. But who cares, you can eat somewhere else, the comfort they provided deserved every bit of the 5 stars.
