The hotel is located across the road from the beach. But in Vung Tau you can not find any hotel right on the beach. The Imperial hotel is the best in Vung Tau. I guess it is even the only five star there. And it proves to be five star. Rooms are big, comfortable and clean. They do cleaning a couple times a day. Food is great. Breakfast is rich and the dinner's menu is also good. The hotel has its own beach area. It does not mean they have a private access to the sea, you can not find it anywhere in Vung Tau, but still you feel sort of protected when sunbathing. The hotel stands on the opposite side of the city from all good city restaurants and entertainment.
