Please read these Terms carefully, as they contain important information about limitations of liability and resolution of disputes through arbitration rather than in court.

We do not sell Hotel Products


The Platform is a hotel search engine that provides users with price comparisons for hotels. vietnamlodge does not provide, own or control any of the hotel services and products that you can access through our Platform (the “Hotel Products”). The Hotel Products are owned, controlled or made available by third parties (the “Hotel Providers”), either directly (e.g., a hotel) or through a facilitator of hotel reservations (e.g., an online travel company). The Hotel Providers are responsible for the Hotel Products. The booking of a Hotel Product takes place solely on the platforms of the Hotel Provider. The Hotel Provider’s terms and privacy policies apply to your booking, so you must agree to, and understand those terms. Further, the terms of the hotel where you plan to stay, if different from the Hotel Provider, will also apply to your booking, so you must also agree to, and understand those terms. Your interaction with any Hotel Provider accessed through our Platform is at your own risk, and vietnamlodge does not have any responsibility should anything go wrong with your booking. vietnamlodge has no control over the Hotel Products or Hotel Providers. 
vietnamlodge hosts content, including prices, images and other information, made available by or obtained from Hotel Providers (“Provider Content”), as well as content provided by users, such as comments, ratings and other information (“User Content” and together with the Provider Content, the “Content”). vietnamlodge is in no way responsible or liable for the accuracy, quality, completeness, reliability, timeliness or trustworthiness of the Content, and vietnamlodge has no influence over the Content. In particular, we do not guarantee that Provider Content, in particular the prices reflected therein, will be updated in real time or that a particular Hotel Product will be available. As a result, the price displayed by a Hotel Provider may not correspond to that displayed on our Platform. Hotel ratings displayed on this Platform are intended as only general guidelines, and the we do not guarantee the accuracy of the ratings or of any User Content. 

 


Vietnamlodge express booking
Vietnamlodge offers its “Vietnamlodge Express Booking” service, which allows a user to make a booking through our Platform. If you opt to use Vietnamlodge Express Booking, the booking will be made with the Hotel Provider named on the booking page, and Vietnamlodge will forward the booking information that you provide to the relevant Hotel Provider. When you make a booking through Vietnamlodge Express Booking, our Platform acts as only a user interface, and you will only have a valid booking with a Hotel Provider if you receive written confirmation within two days from that Hotel Provider accepting your booking. The contract for the relevant booking will be made between you and the Hotel Provider. vietnamlodge has no responsibility for the booking or the Hotel Product because vietnamlodge has no involvement in creating the description of the Hotel Product, in defining the price and any fees, and in providing the Hotel Products that you book. If you have any issues or disputes around your booking and/or the Hotel Product, you agree to address and resolve these with the Hotel Provider and not with us.
