Vien Dong Hotel Nha Trang Reviews
Boring but great hotel Aug 01, 2010
The Vien Dong Hotel is a former governmental hotel where all the high government people sleeped during their stay in Nha Trang, the locals most popular beach town. Because of this the hotel looks very boring. It's one of a million concrete buildings. It's a typical governmental hotel, since you enter by a gate that goes into kind of a inner yard. The entrance into the hotel is in the inner yard, so that cars could drive the important people to the entrance.
At the moment we stayed there, they were building a new wing with rooms. The existing rooms were a bit old.
Our room was old, but it was very luxurious. The beds were excellent and the room was quite big. We had a balcony with a window in front of it that could be opened. Also the bathroom was quite big, with a very good shower. It's that we didn't like the town that much and the hotel was ugly, otherwise we could have stayed here for a long time!
In the inner yard is a very big swimming pool. But I didn't take a swim in it, I did in the sea. The breakfast was more than excellent. There was plenty of choise between what you wanted to have for breakfast, from traditional Vietnamese Pho to all kind of international breakfasts. The restaurant was very big and if you were not at the right time there, you had to wait in line to get your food. But anyway, it was all very well organized and all the food looked delicious.
The service and behavior of the staff is all very professional. We made a online reservation from Hoi An, because we didn't want to have a same bad experience with the hotel as over there. And they were very professional with the reservation too. Also the treatment in the restaurant was like you were in a very expensive restaurant, the clothes of the staff and cooks looked excellent and they served you very well. Furthermore everything in the hotel was very clean. It was maybe a bit more expensive than we are used too, but sometimes it's nice to have so. Especially after one of the worst nights in a nighbus, than we could take a good shower and we took a nap in the afternoon that we really needed.
Anyway, the location is a bit out of the "interesting" city centre with the bars and restaurants about a few hundred meters. But the beach is quite close by. I found the area not the safest of all. Although nothing bad happened, I just didn't feel optimal safe in the streets in that neighbourhood. Especially not in the night.
The hotel is actually more a hotel for big tour groups or big family stayes. way most of the guests were locals. So we didn't have much contact with other people there.
It was definately worth staying here, so therefor I would recommend people staying in this hotel when in Nha Trang.
