2To each his own, but sometimes with my work I get put up in 4 or 5 star Hotels in some Asian countries and I feel so far removed from the people and culture, then when I'm off independently backpacking, I prefer to stay in the local budget guest houses; the hotel staff seem more helpful and approachable, I feel less removed from the people and culture, and I enjoy hearing the experiences and feedback from fellow backpackers. None of which I get from the stuffy and sterile 4 or 5 star places.

4While I agree with #2"s observation, this poll is seriously flawed since by definition there cannot be "three best hotels" but only one. This is the second silly offering by this poster that I have seen. In any case "best" here means what is offered not what is experienced. One major flaw in most SE Asian countries is that they believe if a thing looks good, it is good.

6"..then tip the people who clean your room with some of the money you saved." Absolutely. Well said, the poor wage slaves who work in the "hospitality industry"are way underpaid. Your tips not only improve their standard of living a bit, but also make them feel valuable.
" The Hyatt hovers around #1 on Tripadvisor too. I can't imagine how it gets there
Take a look a the travel forums to see what kind of readership they attract. These are not people who are interested in experiencing that which is unique
in a foreign country they want to preserve the puerile manias of their civilized lives at hopefully a dirt cheap price.

7The Hyatt hovers around #1 on Tripadvisor too. I can't imagine how it gets there...unless of course corporate headquarters has hired internet elves to put it there.
A lot of TA reviews are fakes ...my quess is that "elves" is correct! Nha Trang also has a very strange to order with TA-out of touch with reality!

8You should know about the standards to vote for the hotels on this list include room, location, service, food and value. And all votes are implemented by readers as the members on Travelandleisure.com (a famous site about the travel). Especially, three hotels are only on the top 500 in the world; and they are the best hotels in Vietnam. I think it is true.

10Sonu agree mate ...While I agree with #2"s observation, this poll is seriously flawed since by definition there cannot be "three best hotels" but only one. This is the second silly offering by this poster that I have seen
It's a joke if the vote is based on value and completely out of touch with reality. Basically when you consider the infrastructure of the travel industry in Vietnam and look at the hotels in that context Vietnam would be well placed to have some of the world's worst value hotels.

12"I only offer news and my idea. Of course, your idea may be different from mine." You're missing the point. You never talk about any experience there; your "idea" came from a blogsite you read and not from your actual experience in one of those hotels. If you want to help other travelers write about where you stayed, not what you read. It is entirely possible that those of us who live in SE Asia not only have a different idea, but perhaps a better one.

13Sonu those are 5 star hotels. OP may only stay at 1 star hotels. You are probably right about experience.
I am planning a trip go Seoul Korea at a peak time this year.The hospitality industry in Korea is light years ahead of Vietnam yet the hotels in Seoul ARE CHEAPER than Saigon for star ratings. Seoul airport wins awards for being best airport year after year. The infrastructure of Seoul leaves Saigon for dead so overall the travel experience is miles better value. Personally I think Saigon Hyatt qualifies for one of the world's worst value hotels.
