“good location, poor hotel”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We stayed there for one night and asked for The suite. The suite is a regular room located on the seventh floor. Its an expensive hotel for the quality it offers. Breakfast is terrible although its on the eighth floor with a good view of the city. The staff was helpfull booking a train ticket for saigon and the swimming pool was small and in the shadow but its always convenient. We didnt get to sleep very well because it was halloween night and all the bars on the other side of the streetbwere pumping music out loud. As we dont care for halloween the hotel staff didnt care at all with our concerns as we just wanted to know at what time would the music stop.
Overall its just too expensive for what is, after all, a budget and poor hotel

The entrance to this modern hotel looks great and its only about 200 metres from the beach, loads of shops and bars and restaurants nearby. However, the rooms appear to have been fitted out by a talented gardener rather than a set of builders, plumbers and electricians - why can't they fit taps properly in Vietnam or seal shower units?

This hotel has a 'top choice' recommandation in lonely planet. They do not deserve this at all. Cold showers, reception girls dont speak enough english. Rooms are poor designd and slightly filthy. No safe in every room, and when i asked to put small packedge in the hotel safe with my valuable stuff, she wanted to know what was in it. For me after one night the conclusion: get out of here!

After reading the other reviews I'm glad we moved out after 1 night. They didn't get a chance to steel from us. The room we were give was terrible with 1 small window overlooking the roof of the place next door. It was noisy the breakfast (served from 6.30am to 8.30am) was horrible and the bed was like laying on a wooden floor. At $55 per night this place was a rip off. We went down the road to the King Town Hotel for the remaining 6 nights for $40 per night and were very happy with the decision.

I posted a note on trip advisor over a year ago warning people not to stay here as they would be robbed by the staff. I have no idea why my review has been removed, yet I see another review from someone last month who had $1200 stolen by the staff whilst they were out of the room.

I have lived in Nha Trang for over 3 years and hear the "same same" story but "not different" ending at least once a month about peoples belongings being stolen". There's always police involvement with the manager promising a thorough investigation, however nothing EVER happens.

If you like giving money away, give it to charity, not the robbing so and so's from this hotel!

Dec, 21-23 we stayed at the HOTEL VIOLET and was very pleased with the accomodations and service except on the night before we were to depart. O that night one of our female members discovered that some of her clothing had been turned inside out - as if some had been trying them on. She also discovered her $1,200.00 earrings were missing.
The following morning police were summoned. They made a report and the female manager/owner said she would look into the matter. As of this date nothing has been
reported to us. When we travel, we are cognizant of muggers, purse grabbers and pick pockets, but we don't expect upscale hotel employees to brazzenly rip you off.
