In the eastern region of Danang is The King’s Finger Hotel, a 3-star hotel that caters to both families and couples looking to go beyond the backpacker vibe but sticking to a budget. Located a 10-minute walk away from the beach and a 10-minute taxi journey into Danang city centre, with free use of their bicycles if you prefer the exercise, The King’s Finger Hotel is away from the traffic-induced city and appeals to those eager to hit the beach closeby. Although there are a set of stairs to climb at the entrance, those who are less able can rest assured of the ‘minimal exercise’ as lifts are available in the hotel.
Guaranteed comfort in every hotel room
Upon receiving your room key, you shall be assisted with your luggage to your hotel room, in this case a superior twin room, and shown the features of the room. The superior twin room is more than adequate with very comfortable beds and extra pillows should you need them, and a modern Western-inspired tiled bathroom. It caters to the everyday tourist with Western television channels on the flat screen TV and ablutions that are topped up regularly every morning. The bathroom has no bathtub facilities, only a shower, but you will feel refreshed after a long day of exploring in Danang. However, be mindful that the strong shower head can go from cold to boiling hot randomly and can flood the entire bathroom when using the shower for an extended period of time. The room in overall is ideal for comfort and has a great provision of facilities, though if you’re an avid Wi-Fi user, expect the Wi-Fi service to be unreliable oftentimes.
Receive a cultural experience for breakfast
In the morning, the buffet of breakfast food serves all arrays of food with both Vietnamese and Western cuisines. Cooks are on hand to whip up a fresh omelette with any veggies or meat you desire, with regular replacements of food, coffee, tea and juices. For vegetarians and vegans, it can be difficult as much of the food on offer contains meat, but there is a small fruit and vegetable selection. The variety of food is changed each morning so you get to taste different kinds of foods instead of the same menu, which is both refreshing and interesting to have a try of local Vietnamese food. During breakfast, many staff members will take the time to ask how you are doing and what your plans are for the day. One of the highlights of The King’s Finger Hotel is the attentiveness and politeness of the staff who have a genuine respect and interest in all of their guests. Some staff even recommend places to visit and restaurants to try as well as helping out in any way possible, from if you need medication to providing taxi journeys or motorbike hire services and getting to know guests on a personal level.
Take the chance to unwind at the rooftop pool
On the top floor is the swimming pool, a beautiful place to swim at night when the city is lit up, with a glimpse of the famous Dragon Bridge that breathes fire on selected days. Although the swimming pool is not heated, it is a relaxing place to go to after a day of sightseeing or even in the morning after breakfast. From here, you can also order food and drinks – both Western and Vietnamese – with a fast service and again lovely staff to assist you in any way. This rounds off the stay at The King’s Finger Hotel with staff that gladly help you with your luggage and organising a taxi for when you check out.
Value, quality & care at The King's Finger Hotel
For a 3-star hotel, The King’s Finger Hotel surpasses the mark with friendly and helpful staff, delicious food and comfortable beds that overall makes it good value for money. Although it is fair distance from the sights in Danang City, it’s only a 10-minute taxi ride away and a stone’s throw away from the beach with bicycles provided by the hotel should you need them. For value, comfort and facilities, The King’s Finger Hotel is the hotel to stay at.
