Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 21, 2012

The standard of room in this hotel is far superior than the price charged. We stayed 4 nights and its the best value room we found in 2 months travelling in Vietnam. Its very clean, great air conditioning and fan, excellent wifi access, LCD TV on wall, fridge and plenty of furniture, they even have a little vanity table with mirror! Short walk to beach and in the middle of restaurant and bar area but quiet as down back alley. Owner and staff very welcoming. Great breakfast, best barquettes! 4 star room for 1 star price. Standard room plenty of space and balcony.

We stayed at Carpe DM for 3 months - didn't want to move out!!!
This has to be the best value for money hotel in the world. It deserves its No1 in Nha Trang - beautifully furnished private and public rooms and Danny, his family and staff are all brilliant people who make you most welcome.
Over the time we were there we recommended it to 4 other couples who took our advice and stayed there and were more than satisfied.
Don't bother with other hotels - choose Carpe DM first but leave a room for us next year!!
Thank you Danny for all the help you gave us.

I can only echo what the previous 88 reviewers have said about this place and the host, Danny. You'll struggle to find a better 5* hotel for comfort and service. Excellent breakfast too. I wouldn't have been complaining if we'd paid twice the price - an absolute steal!

the BEST part of my stay at Nha Trang, besides the awesome coffee, cheap seafood, cheap booze woohoo, gorgeous beach (ok thats quite a list... BUT!), would have to be my genius (not shy) pick of accommodation: Carpe DM Hotel. i was backpacking in Vietnam, aka looking around for budget stays. hence, i was definitely not prepared for the comfortable, luxurious room offered to me here! it's indeed a hotel, but at a hostel's rate. what more can i ask for?

the hotel is situated right at the end of some back alleys. i was a little worried about it initially but when night fell, i was totally assured as the residents living nearby are harmless and mind to their own businesses. they will probably give you some stares, but thats it. with that said, the stay is quiet and away from the "party scene" along the main street. i read some reviews that mentioned about the noises from the nearby school, but these noises stop after their evening soccer game. nothing to worry about unless you go to bed at 7pm. 

one thing to note, Carpe DM does not provide breakfast. im not sure if it was stated, but i didnt know about that. was a little surprised when the bill came, but then again it wasnt like super expensive. you probably spend the same amount in some other restaurants outside. 

the room is great. spacious and cheap. super comfy bed, absolutely welcoming after my overnight train ride on the dreadful and musky smelling hardsleeper! Danny the boss and his family were very nice too! i was sorta complaining to him about me being fleeced/cheated in HCMC and Danny was kind enough to gimme a small discount on my stay. i swear i wasnt trying to earn some pity points! i still rmb him telling me "i cant have bad luck always". 

all in all, very nice and enjoyable stay. will definitely not hesitate a slight bit to return if i were to visit Nha Trang again!

Stayed 9 days and was bowled over how good this hotel is.We will with out doubt return here as it ticked all our boxes.You often read reviews and think mmmmm family, friends etc have reviewed to give a high score,in the Carpe DM case every 5 star review is genuine .Its quiet where it is situated but within 100mts to the bright lights and the beach just over 5 mins walk.Thanks Danny and your staff for a wonderful experience in Nha Trang.

Room Tip: Any room here will be top notch.

Had a wonderful relaxing time in Nha Trang , our hotel was lovely,located just off the main st in a back alley. People sitting relaxing outside their homes at night and very friendly. Rooms were very nice comfortable, clean, lots of space, great designed bathroom, mini bar, tv and balcony.Good breakfast for small price and Danny allowed us to use the computer anytime. They were very friendly and helpful, organising our transport and information.

The hotel I located in a quiet alley just yards from the main bar a restaurant drag and less than 5 minutes walk to the beach. We stayed in a Superior room which was really nice, loads of space, a tub, mini bar, tv all for $20, we even had a balcony with mountain views. Danny is a great host, organising train tickets for us and offering us a check out of whenever we liked in the day, as I had a bit of food poisoning. Cannot speak highly enough of the place.
