Each of the 10 rooms is devoted to its totem animal, they symbolize a country: for example, the bear is Russia, Tiger – China, Eagle – America. Rooms are decorated with unique furnishings. Every animal-totem is also a fireplace. Rooms have modern bathrooms, but also in an interesting design. And the beds are often mirrors – Viet Nga believes that this promotes love. All ten rooms are rented for living, with relatively little money for foreigners – about a hundred dollars a night.
