First things first, nothing at all bad about the place.

Very nice staff, friendly, chatty and helpful. Nice enough room, it needs a paint though, but I think it may be being updated as saw boxes for new TV's etc to update the ancient ones there. We also know about this as we got woken up at 6am by hammering and drilling on the Saturday morning - not impressed!

If we were to go back I'd say you can find similar for less money based on past experience, but if you don't mind for the few dollars more its worth it.

Opted for this hotel because it was $5 CAD a night for each of us. The room was large with 2 huge beds for the 4 of us. Unfortunately no window but no big deal. Room was superbly clean and the so was the rest of the hotel. Awesome balconies on each floor to lounge around. Location as well, was probably one of the best in the city, near all the other backpackers and the nightlife.

Staff was amazing, we rented bikes from them for cheap and they showed us all the amazing things to do in Nha Trang including the mud baths, Baho waterfalls and amazing places to eat. Eat at Lac Canh! Best BBQ on the planet!

Room Tip: Try and opt for a room with windows. Rooms on the edge with balcony may have less privacy than the...

We stayed in this hotel for three nights.. As we were unsure of how long we would stay in nha trang we only booked for one night at a time..beach time we had to change rooms but the staff here were so helpful they moved out bags for us as we had planned to leave early each morning for a diving course.. So helpful:) the staff at reception are sooo helpful too in organising bikes;trips nd asking how we got on after each time we returned.. Location is perfect close to everything but not disturbed by noise or anything!:) brill :) would recommend anyone to stay here - fab!

We stayed at this family run hotel for 4 nights and were very impressed with how well managed/organized it is. The room is quite spacious, very clean, great air con and wi fi was really good. There was a plate of fruit (bananas) in our room as a welcome gift. We had a standard double room and the beds (as well as pillows) were extremely comfortable - not all your standard very hard Asian beds and pillows.. It is very well located - 5 mins walk to beach and close to many great restaurants. You can also recycle your bottles as well as any organic material by putting it in bins in the lobby. This particularly impressed us as recycling is important to us and we did not see this elsewhere so far. On our first day we were given a map and an orientation to where we were and recommended restaurants/sites. The map even listed the closest ATM, post office and local convenience stores. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They went out of there way to be welcoming and hospitable. They have great information available in binders in the lobby on all the attractions and tours available. There was no pressure regarding booking tours. We did book 2 tours (snorkeling and mud baths) and both were excellent. We left by the night bus and were able to leave our backpacks -a shower/bathroom was available to us when we returned from day at the beach. We would definitely return here.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so lower floors best if stairs are an issue at all. It was a quiet location so...

This place is a terrific option for traveling on a budget. The hotel is 5 minute walk from the Nha Trang beach, as well as several good restaurants and bars/nightclubs. The staff was tremendously helpful in recommending restaurants, sights and activities to look out for, and arranging motorbike rentals.

I was particularly thankful for the amazing staff at Truong Giang when I slipped at Chong Rock and cut my chin, needing 5 stitches. I returned to the hotel and the lady at reception accompanied me to the nearest medical clinic, which would otherwise have been impossible for me to find on my own. She stayed at the clinic with me for the whole time while I was there so that she could translate for me and expedite my medical care.

The staff at Truong Giang will do their absolute best to meet your needs.

I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Nha Trang.

If you travel on a budget but still look for some comfort, Truong Giang hotel is a good option.
Rooms are spacious and cleaned every day. Unfortunately, it doesn't prevent ours to smell old humidity. It was bearable. The hotel is safe and well located. The staff warmly welcomed us and did a great job. I would avoid their recommendations though. Based on what I had read here, I gave it a shot and was disappointed. I guess that like the other hotels, they send you where they receive a commission. It's like for the tours, they take their part. It's a business, so, it's fair.

Tips:
The restaurant next door is quite good. It takes 5 min walk to avoid all the touristy restaurants.
There are a couple of the best Vietnamese photographers in town and they have galleries that are worth a look.
To perfect your Russian, Nha Trang is The place to go.

Hi

Thank you for your review on our hotel on TripAdivsor and hostelworld. We are glad you enjoyed your stay although there was also some let-down. Wish we could explain to you directly.

We self edited a guidebook and city maps available at reception to bring travellers more information of Nhatrang city such as good restaurants, entertainment places worth trying… which makes it convinient for you to travel first time to my country. Moreover, expecting our guests to have an enjoyable stay in Nhatrang, we spent our time and money to try out quiet a lot restaurants and tours ourselves. Then our guidebook came out.

Our viewpoint is recommendating but no pushing. You can see this reading through many reviews above. Genarally, our recommendation are highly appreaciated. However. it cannot satisfy everybody due to many reasons; for example, the guests expecting more than what they get, weather changing, health ...

We are sorry you didnt enjoy the tour. Understanding there is no assurance 100% people would enjoy it all, we always have been trying hard to provide our guests with the best service as we can.

We wish you a great holiday.
