“Good hotel at Quy Nhon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Overall I would recommend this hotel, a good choice on the Quy Nhon water front.
We spent one night at this hotel, end of January 2013.
We got a room at the 9th floor, and had a fantastic view of the sea.
The room was comfortable and spacious, with the standard amenities for this level of hotel. The bath room was clean and functional, with good supply of hot water.
Buffet breakfast, at the restaurant near the beach, was good.
There is a night market not far from the hotel, but we didn't find too many places to eat near by.
Some 20 minutes walk along the avenue (going to the right when leaving the hotel) there are some restaurants (including KFC) and many places to seat and drink, although it seems no one speak English and we had hard time finding a place which serves beer.

We stayed here for 3 nights after reading decent reviews about the place. It's located in the south of town, right on the beach. The room was quite spacious, as was the bathroom. Our corner room view toward the ocean was spectacular. The breakfast buffet was the best we'd had and the mini bar beverages were reasonably priced. There is a pool and restaurant adjacent to the hotel. The only complaints: the pillows are way too bulky and stiff so we woke up with neck aches, the pool was green and murky, and the staff was not super friendly. Overall, this place is great for the low price we paid.

Room Tip: Get a corner ocean view room. It's a couple dollars more.

I had a trip to Quy Nhon and decided to book room at this hotel, the reservation is simple through phone call. Overall, the price is ok, the room is clean and comfortable, staff os friendly also. Additionally, the location is very good, it's nearby the beach and main road of town. Quy Nhon is a very great place to visit with delicious and cheap food, clean sea, and peaceful town.

We decided to stay in Quy Nhon for a rest between Nha Trang and Hoi An. We were pretty happy with the room we had a great view overlooking the beach and also a very large fairly clean room. The bathroom however was something else! It was disgusting very unclean, the plug hole was clogged with hair! You also have to let the bath water out by letting it flood the whole barroom into a plug at the side of the toilet so you have to let the water out in stages! It is quite pricy for what you get even the wall paper in the room is peeling off. We have stayed in hotels half the price of this and had a much better time!!

This hotel feels like it wants to be high class, but just lacked the budget to achieve its goal. However, it is located right on the beach, has elevators and a bell-hop, spacious rooms, and very comfy beds. But given that you pay 30-50% more that other back-packet style hotels, you certainly get what you pay for.

On our way heading south from Hanoi to Saigon, we stopped in Quy Nhon, where we ended up staying 6 days. The town is great and bustling with locals living undisturbed by tourism. The town has a beach several kilometers of lenght in day time it is totally unvisitited and we had it all by ourselves, but in the afternoon it wakes up when all the locals come to swim, run and play. All along the beach runs the main road and of the opposite site almost every building houses a small local restaurant that prepares delicious seafood. of course the locals gave us quite a lot of interest but that is what to except with few tourists around, and luckily it was all friendly faces.

By far the town and beach is what you should come to visit here and not the Hoang Yen hotel. The hotel had poor service, I would guess they work long hours and we met them after a hard days work, they were definitely not too welcoming. Anyways the room itself was ok, not too big and a bit worn, but still liveable. Especially when you pay only around 33 US for a family room. The breakfast was nice and made up by a big buffet with lots to choose from. unfortunately the pool was not clean and we decided it was better to stay away from it. At one point in the evening we went down in the restaurant and ordered food and since in was all converted into a big wedding room I asked if we could have the food brought to our room. This was no problem, but when we received the food there was extra fees of 30 percent because we were using room service. I found this to be a bit of a hustle since we couldnt eat in the restaurant and nobody told us about the extra fees.

However we ended up moving to the hotel next door called Binh Duong Guesthouse, this is a bit smaller ever more worn not as good breakfast, but half price and has much bigger rooms, here we paid only 21 us for a big family room with seaview.

Be aware that all three hotels on the beach Hoang Yen, Seagull Hotel and Binh Duong houses weddings and especially the ever present karaoke can be noisy. These events seemed to be most popular in Hoang Yen and Seagull hotel. Which was another reason for us choosing Binh Duong.

If you a looking for a real escape and no noise you should choose the Royal Hotel & Healthcare Resort a couple of 100 meters up the beach. it is more expensive as you are likely to pay at least 65 us for a big seaview room, but there will be no noise.

Firstly, if you're looking for a hotel in Quy Nhon - don't. Do yourself a favour and go somewhere else, you will be the envy of me and everyone else I met there. If by some horrible misfortune you absolutely MUST go to Quy Nhon then I have the following to say about Hoang Yen hotel:
PRO:
- The room was comfortable with a satellite TV and mini fridge and firm bed.
CONS:
- It's in Quy Nhon
- It's nowhere near anything to eat
- It hosted 9 weddings in the 2 nights we stayed there. And the Vietnamese have music playing at a high volume the entire way through. Not just for a little dance to the Grease megamix at the end, the ENTIRE time, even when eating. So we could barely hear our thoughts when we were in and around the lobby, pool, cafe. Not to mention the hundreds of wedding guests coming in and out (no exaggeration). 
- If you eat at the Restaurant during a wedding (i.e anytime) you eat at the back of the reception... With the deafening music. We opted out and went hungry.
- The "cafe" attached to the hotel can seat maybe 150 people had about 3 customers in it, had about 15 staff sitting around and wouldn't seat us for whatever reason and told us to go to the restaurant. We said there was a wedding, they told us to sit on the balcony (which was open to the reception hall, effectively sitting at the back of a wedding reception). I have absolutely no idea why they don't allow you to eat at a cafe, particularly when it's impossible to enjoy your meal at the restaurant. 
- We asked reception to book us a bus out of Quy Nhon (we couldn't leave fast enough) she told us the price, we paid, she booked it and obviously told the bus company we were Westerners because mid phone call the price mysteriously went up by 30,000 Dong each. I asked if it was because we were Westerners, she didn't say anything and asked for the money. When we received the ticket that afternoon, it had the original price that we paid written on it. No surprises there. So we paid more and were given the worst seats on the bus, the only 2 which didn't recline. 
- The noise of the other guests was so loud in the mornings that you can forget about a sleep in. They didn't mention on the website they hosted the shouting world championships at 5:30am, but now you know. 
- There were cigarette burns in the bed spread
- The shower head sat at about below chin level
There is a reason Quy Nhon is "off the tourist trail" don't believe a thing Lonely Planet says about it. The beach was brown and dirty, the 'White sandy beaches a few kilometres away" aren't much better, there are no decent restaurants, the locals don't want you there and look at you like you've just arrived in a spaceship. If you want a place to break up the bus trip from Hoi An to Nha Trang or vice versa, then I suggest you find a hotel with room service, arrive, check in, eat in your room, leave first thing the next morning. You're not missing anything.
