“Amazing value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is incredible value. The breakfast in the morning is fantastic, try the iced coffee, the pool is beautiful and the rooms are spacious. Wonderful staff, really helpful, especially the owner. We hired a motorbike through the hotel and it was cheap, super easy and we got a great map of how to see the Mui Ne attractions. The beds are a little firm, but we haven't stayed anywhere in Vietnam where they haven't been. The restaurant is completely adequate if you don't have time to go exploring for food, beer is cold and the coffee is strong. Stay here and enjoy a great little hotel at hostel prices.

Don't have any hesitations about deciding to stay here! We are travelling with 4yo daughter, so opportunity for her to be able to play with the owners (English & Vietnamese) kids was just what Erin was looking for. They share their toys, and lent some water wings for swimming in the pool. The pool is great as beach can get a bit windy and awesome to laze around during the day. Food in the hotel restaurant was great, with a good choice available and breakfast included in the room price. They have a family room upstairs where a sofa bed was added to the existing double bed. The owners take great pride in their Hotel and it shows in the attention to detail and cleanliness of common areas, rooms and bathrooms/toilets. The staff are extremely helpful with local knowledge and things to do, or directions. Better still they don't try to "sell you" anything, however, if you require travel arrangements, or tours, they will happily organise for you hassle free. We ended up staying a week here and was sad to depart back.

I booked just for one night by email and this was a bit cheaper than by the bookingsites. I ended up staying there for 3 nights.

The rooms are big, clean and the service is good. Always a smile. The english and dutch owners are laidback and can help you with good advice.

It is in the middel of the town where you can walk from one bar to another. As Mui Ne is very big/wide, this is a plus.

The swimmingpool is also nice if you don't want to go to the beach and is also very good after a hot day. You can get towels at the reception.

The breakfast is also good. I had to leave early and they served it to me an hour before they normally opened. And the restaurant is also very good. Try the chili con carne or a pizza.

I had a good time and will be back!

I arrived with no accommodation in mui me as I had been on the road for a few days. I tried my luck at xin chao hotel and luckily got a room! The owner was so friendly when I arrived I even got a discounted room as it was still low season. I wanted to stay another night and he re-arranged a few things so that I could as my room was already booked. The room was perfect, air conditioned and clean, bed comfortable, breakfast very filling and the pool is a great place to relax. The staff were very knowledgable of the area and were always friendly and helpful! They can book travel tickets for you so no need to research. I think I was very lucky to stumble apron this.

We stayed in this new hotel for a few nights and everything was perfect! Nice and brand new rooms, really nice pool, well trained and friendly staff, very good breakfast and tasty food in general. The hotel is run by two westerners who are in mui ne for years and have connections to the best local kitesurf teacher!

If you are looking for a perfect hotel in Mui Ne, go to Xin Chao!
Since years I know the owners and some staff and they are awesome! They knew I was coming and kept a room available for me, even without booking in advanced. The hotel is brand new and has all the facilities you need. Check out the kiteboarding shop next to it and have a nice meal in their restaurant.
Both owners are skilled kiteboarders and know everything about it. For all sort of questions about the sport you can ask them. But also for other activities in Mui Ne.
Don't look for other places if you have the budget to stay here, coz Xin Chao Hotel is worth it!

Thanks Tien, Twan and Paul!
