“Very good budget hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2009

This hotel is overall a very good stay: 15USD for a double occupancy with friendly staff. Close to the beach though not front beach where it's very very noisy, but still it's a bit noisy, you may wear earplugs to get asleep.
Rooms are of good size with A/C and fan, cleanliness is OK.
I would recommend this hotel to those who are looking for budget hotel but clean and comfortable.

The staff at Kim Ngan hotel were very friendly and offered us some excellent advice. They arranged a tour for us successfully. The rooms are very clean and large some have balconies. Godd breakfast, not included, but a lovely place to stay - we hired bicycles to see the surrounding areas at a very chaep rate from the hotel. 2 couples, four of us all over 50yrs found this a great place to stay

On the basis of reviews here on tripadvisor we decided to stay at Kim Ngan. We had a great time and found everything clean and functional. I'd say this hotel is a pretty safe bet. The lady in charge (maybe she's Kim Ngan - I don't know) was on the ball, spoke good english and was always ready to help us.

We stayed one night in a 12 dollar room on the 3rd floor. Small balcony. No view to speak of. Towels and soap missing. Small TV just a speck, across the other side of the room from the bed where we wanted to collapse after a long day of traveling. Not a fantastic start, but not terrible either for 12 dollars, everything else was inorder. They quickly and apologetically sorted out our towel and soap problem and we discovered 2 large bottles of water in the fridge (nice touch - 10,000 each - not bad). Powerful air conditioning and a duvet -like blanket rather than a plain sheet brought back the feeling of luxury and we were happy bunnies. Especially when we saw the prices of the room service menu - very reasonable indeed.

We spent 3 more nights in a 15 dollar room on the 6th floor. This price includes breakfast. We later discovered that breakfast options were rather limited as most of what is on the menu was not available. Maybe we were unlucky in our timing as other posts here recommend the banana pancakes which were not available for the duration of our stay! This room had 2 double beds (one bigger than the other), a bath tub, and a big balcony looking out to the water in front and the mountains on either side. Really brilliant. We had no problem with noise from other guests or the street.

The location of the hotel is fine as long as you don't mind a little walking. It's a little more than 5 mins to the beach and then a walk along the coast until you decide where you want to settle. Probably another 10 mins to the sailing club, for example, which provides nice beach chairs, umbrellas, drinks and masseurs. If you'd like to in the heart of the bar and restaurant area I think this place may not be ideal for you. There are plenty of cheap hotels closer to tourist-central.

Other comments on the hotel: the manager recommended a couple of good Vietnamese restaurants which were indeed excellent but totally out of our modest budget! One place we can recommend is Lac Cahn, popular with tourists and locals alike for table-top BBQ style food, not for seafood though.

The hotel can sort out tours for you (boat tour to 4 islands 100,000 VND) and hire out motorbikes (120,000 for an automatic and 80,000 for normal). They also have internet access for free and a skype headphone set, set up and ready to go.

We (4 of us) stayed here in July 09 for 3 nights. The rooms were a good size and everything was adequately clean. Nothing was in very new condition, but we were paying $14 a night for a double incl breakfast, and were more than happy with the standard of the accommodation.

The bes thing about the place was the balcony. Of our 2 rooms, one had a very small balcony which faced out towards the sea. The room facing inland, however, had a huge balcony with beautiful views up to the mountains. The 4 of us had a great time sitting out there in the evenings and they even served us breakfast up there every day!

The service we received there was excellent, from breakfast on the balcony to booking our buses and letting us use their staff shower before getting on the sleeper bus to Hoi An.

For the money, I'd definitely say it was the best value hotel we stayed in in Vietnam

Our room was very spacious with 2 large beds, lovely decorated. Snack and food was fabulous, quick and cheap. Booking boattrip tour was very easy and trusted from hotel reception. The location is OK as well, just 5 mins to walk to the beach and restaurants, shops are all around, within walking distance. We were very happy enjoying the holiday there.

Stayed in mid Feb 2009. My buddy and I booked this place off another site, where it has more reviews. A bit hesitant after the negative review on Tripadvisor, but we went with it. After staying there, I feel like I should spread the word about this little find. Kim Ngan is located in a quiet street away from the main street construction. It's about a 10-12 min walk to the beach. Lots of food and shopping options nearby.

This hostel is one of the few that I've stayed in that has an elevator. This is convenient, especially after a long day on the town. We were given a 3 bedroom balcony room, which basically turned out to be the entire floor, for the price of a double. Rooms are clean, although ours was a bit cramped with the 3 beds. Bathroom is a bit small and not as clean as it should be, but this is probably attributable to accumulated sand and soot from the beach. We had a great balcony view of Nha Trang. Great banana pancakes, eggs and coffee served to your room. Front office staff is friendly and helpful - they recommended where to go, rented us motorbikes (THE ONLY WAY TO EXPLORE NHA TRANG!) and booked bus tickets.

This hotel is only $12 a night inc breakfast, it has aircon, fan, balcony, fridge, cable tv. The hotel even has a lift!! its in an ideal location, down a quiet street.

we actually should of been staying in the angella hotel for $45 a night, but this hotel (which is only in the next street) had intensive building work going on it it, plus a new hotel being built infront of my seaveiw window.we stayed one night then went to sunflower tours down the road who recomended the kim ngan, one of the tour staff even walked us to the hotel. we couldnt believe what we could get for our $12. the room was big and clean, the bathroom is small but its the standard style for a $12 hotel, you know the type (sit on the toilet whilst you shower).

i can honestly say i would definatley return to this hotel, i found it oen of the better $12 hotels i stayed in throught vietnam
