“Fantastic and best value for money”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Don't be fooled by the little alley you have to go through to get to this hotel. The rooms and amenities are equivalent of any 4 star hotel and for a 2 star price. Love it!! So comfortable, clean, well maintained rooms. Perfect location to main strip of restaurants, shops and down the road from the infamous Sailing Club. Created a tripadvisor account solely to review Carpe DM! You will not be disappointed.

My wife, grandson, and I stayed at the Carpe DM Hotel for four nights in early June 2013. Danny and his family and staff were terrific. I was on a mission to find some old friends from my Vietnam War days in Ninh Hoa which is about an hour north of Nha Trang. Danny hooked me up with a car and driver for an incredibly low price for the day. The driver's English was lacking but his Vietnamese was perfect (smile). With his assistance we actually found the people I was looking for. Imagine how surprised everyone was when I returned after a 45 year absence. All I can say is WOW! Thank you Danny for your great hotel and your great service.

Room Tip: Want extra room? Reserve the "family room". It cost a little more but still a great bargai...

We checked into Carpe DM Hotel after a three day Easy rider tour through the Central Highlands of Vietnam. It was just what we needed and beyond.
Danny upgraded us on arrival to a deluxe room which was fantastic. We loved it so much that we extended our stay even though we didn't like Nha Trang. Danny and his team are really lovely and helpful people. He organized a motorbike for us, recommended a secluded beach to visit and advised us which bus we should take to get to Hoi An. All worked out perfect for us.
The breakfast was one of the best we received in Vietnam and the fresh juice was fantastic.
We loved every second at this hotel and really appreciated that we could do a late check out on our final day since our bus was leaving at 7 pm. Thanks again to the staff for an amazing time.

Room Tip: The only slight bother we had was that the internet was patchy in our room as we were on the second...

We visited Nha Tang for a long weekend break from Singapore. We were welcomed and checked in with 2 minutes, and before check in times as the room was a available.

Rooms are spacious, clean, modern with AC and fan. Danny the owner was incredibly sincere, informative and always on hand. We asked his advise on where to get a massage, but coffee, eat, rules of the road etc. Everything was spot on.

They rent motorbikes and also arrange airport transfers all at reasonable prices.

The hotel is two minutes walk from the main social area, down a pleasant little Vietnamese back street.

You get what you pay for and more at Carpe DM, travelling in Asia can be tedious at times, but this place is hassle free and very safe.

We arrived in Nha Trang at 6.30am and had trouble finding somewhere to stay where we could have our room immediately, but stumbled upon this gem of a place! So happy to have found it, it was around $7 each per night for 4 people on 2 doubles and was so worth it. Comfy bed and pillows, air con, just a lovely room! The owner and his family could not have done any more to make us happy. Best place I've stayed in :-) would definitely come here again and recommend to friends.

A very comfortable hotel located close to Nha Trang's sights and local pubs, restaurants and booking offices. We arrived late at night and I must admit I was a little perturbed by the fact that the hotel is located at the end of some rather dimly lit alleyways. The alleys were fine, but when you arrive in a unfamiliar location late at night it can be a little disconcerting - at least until you get used to your surroundings. It looked a bit dodgy at night, but its actually OK. And luckily we had a good map !

Checking in was a bit of an anticlimax. There were a group of guys sitting out the front when we arrived and one of them got up and checked us in. There wasn't much said, basically just took a copy of my passport and gave me the key. Felt a bit 'flat' and impersonal after some of the warmer welcomes I had received in other guesthouses, especially after a long bus journey. However I got to meet the owner when I checked out and he was far more friendly, animated and helpful. He even gave me a $3 discount which is always a bonus !!

The room (room 1.1) was very large,comfortable and nicely decorated. It had free wifi and a safe inside the room. Certainly one of the nicer rooms I stayed in during my travels. The only downside was that the streetlight was located right outside the room (1.1) so even at night it was bright inside. The curtains were also quite light coloured and transparent which let the light in. I bought eyeshades for the second night and this fixed the problem. There is also a soccer field right outside and given the heat the locals start their games quite early in the morning. I didn't really hear the noise, but my friend in room 1.4 did, so perhaps bring earplugs also if you want a sleep in. Other than that the hotel is in a quiet location and there is no street noise.

Overall a very nice hotel which would be perfect with a warmer welcome and some darker curtains.

Value for money score: 8/10

Room Tip: If bright lights keep you awake ask for a room not directly adjacent to the street light

Super convenient to everything, to purchase water, Hoi An Tailors, groceries, Sailing club, beach. At first you think, god at the end of some dodgy lane way, but it couldn't be more perfect as your living amongst locals and get a glimpse of how they live. They offer transfers cheaper than any taxi on ammeter will give you, source advice if you have a recreation you want to do; Hot Springs for example the best place to go.
