Hien Mai Hotel
Ranked #171 of 314 Nha Trang B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 28, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Hien Mai Hotel for 3 nights in mid-April 2013.

We stayed in a Deluxe double room which was on the first floor and came with a large double bed with bedside table one side (with phone), a small dressing table with chair and mirror, a wardrobe with safety deposit drawer, tv, fridge, aircon and a small balcony (albeit looking straight at another building so there was no view). The ensuite was a bathroom/ wet room design and fairly large with modern appliances.

The hotel is quaint and small but clean and modern. It is well located in a small alleyway with a few other guesthouses, diagonally opposite Lantern (an excellent restaurant by the way) just off the main road leading into tourist Nha Trang. It is 2 blocks and less than a 10 minute walk to the beach, 3 minutes to the post office and about 10 minutes from the main area of restaurants and bars although there are several nearer. You are still far enough away though to not pick up any noise or be bothered at all by the bars if that's not your sort of things. It is a maximum 10 minute taxi ride from the station - it cost us 28,000 Dong on the taxi metre for an evening journey (7pm) - DO NOT LET THEM TRY AND FIX THE COST - we were quoted 100,000 Dong!!

The wifi was slightly shakey in our room and only seemed to work properly when you were standing in one place. There were 2 available computers to use downstairs although I am not sure what the charge was (if any).

We only saw 2 staff the whole time we were there but they were both friendly. The receptionist/ breakfast lady was very sweet and spoke reasonable English. She was able to help with our onward travel plans by train to HCMC and book us a taxi to take us to the station when we left. Breakfast was very basic and consisted of a small plate of fruit, a baguette and 2 eggs cooked any style, plus tea and coffee. It is randomly served to you on the only 4 person table in the kitchen area so be prepared to share your breakfast with others if the hotel is full. This didn't bother us but I know some people prefer their privacy, especially in the mornings!

Overall, we had a good stay at Hien Mai Hotel and would recommend to other budget travellers.

Stayed here over the new year, booked for 4 nights but had to change to 3 because of an easyrider tour. Manager was ok with this change and we were not charged even though we stayed over a busy time. Free breakfast which was good. Free computers too. The room was nice although missing a curtain on one of the windows near the bathroom. Staff were very friendly and opened up at 3am to let us back in. Would stay here again and have recommended to other people we have met.

My partner and I chose Hien Mai Hotel and we are pleased we did as we had a fantastic stay. Our room had it's own balcony and was immaculate, spacious and airy. It is in the perfect location to access the beach and the local shops, bars and restaurants. Considering it's central location, we were not disturbed by loud music or street noise.
The staff were freindly and attentive and more than helpful when assisting us with our transport needs. The staff showed no sign of displeasure when we kept turning up at ungodly hours in the morning needing to be let in and always greated us warmly. The only little niggle was that the air con in our room wasn't the best but they were more than happy to kit the room with a large fan which did the trick
I would recommend this hotel to other travellers. We ended up paying less than £40 for 2 people for 3 nights - considering the quality of the room, this was a fair price.

They overbooked the hotel, made up about two or three excuses and then had us stay down the road at their "sister hotel" which was a total dive. Out of protest, we found a new hotel the next day which was amazing, the Mojzo Inn. Took me two days, and about five attempts to get a refund, and was charged full price for the one night we did stay.

We stated at Hien Mai for 4 nights and have found it a brilliant hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and spacious. This is a great find for anyone wanting a centally located hotel, at a reasonable price (we paid $18/night for a room with a balcony). A really lovely family set up! The only downside could be an improvement on the breakfast, it is fairly limited. Overall though a fantastic value, very clean and friendly hotel where we would definitely return!!

Room Tip: Recommend spending a bit more for a deluxe room and getting a room with a balcony!
