“Pleasant Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2011

We booked this hotel based on the solid reviews it had on Trip Advisor. It was under $30 per night, and was only rated as a 2 star hotel, so we didn't know quite what to expect.
We arrived at about 6am from the night train, and while they couldn't check us in immediately, they got us in to our room within an hour.
The lobby is clean and very comfortable with a French inspired cafe. The rooms are tiny, but had enough room for all our stuff. The AC was welcome as was the great shower.
They have a great free breakfast on the roof top patio. They also have a lounge on the roof top that was extremely comfortable after a long day to read, visit, or enjoy a night cap.
Located just far enough from the beach to have less traffic, but lots of shops and restaurants near by.
Great value. We'd highly recommend it!

The Ha Van is run by a Frenchman who has created a small oasis in an otherwise chaotic town. The rooftop restaurant and cocktail/Internet Cafe is a great place to get away from the constant musical onslaught by the likes of Marley and Morrison. Ha Van is a shade pricier than the places that surround it, but worth the tiny bit extra. They serve excellent meals and have an ice cream parlour/espresso bar that makes great lattes.

Right now I am on the rooftop, at the restaurant, eating perhaps the best breakfast in all Vietnam (many choices). I am here with good friends that I met 3 years ago at this very spot and who, along with many others, return each year to Nha Trang and would go nowhere else. We are all avid world travelers and know that we have choices. Other reviews talk of the 4 star service with the added warmth of a B&B. Safe, secure, a staff of impeccable integrity that remains here all these years...same people who greet me by name upon arrival and have planned a birthday party for me.
And now a 2-star Michelen rated French chef serving sinfully delicious and beautifully presented dishes each night. Incredible! Who would have thought?

Stayed four nights here with my girlfriend. It's about 2 minutes walk from the beach and planty of bars within a few minutes walk. The staff are extremely helpful. The free breakfast is huge and really nice. For the price, this is one of the nicest places we've stayed on our trip round SE Asia.

At first there was difficulty finding an attractive place within my budget in central Nha Trang. Ha Van had what I was looking for.

Securing a driver at the airport through the hotel was easy and convenient. The reception is in an open air garage-like entrance. This is an area where you can lounge with magazines or rent a bike at a cheap daily rate. The elevator is quick. The rooms painted a sunshine-orange hold 2 large beds, TV, and useful visitor information. I enjoyed the rooftop bar and breakfast area. For breakfast there are a couple of full plate options; either were fine with me. At one point syrup was requested to a local waitress. The Canadian manager heard this, and explained to his staff what this was. Even though they didn’t normally serve syrup, he soon brought to the table a close substitute for syrup.

It was evident that management was working on actively improving things. Almost a week there, I saw bar furniture being replaced, and old food menus were replaced with new ones. The hotel can arrange tickets to the mud spa or for the train. What’s left to be desired - Better artwork? The topless adolescents photos and artwork were off putting, Computerized receipt? The desk clerk had added everything up by hand. Not only did he have to check it twice, but so did I, as was hard to read and took awhile.

Traveling with a friend who also lives in Thailand and who had been to Nha Trang a few times and stayed at the Ha Van, I was very pleased with the overall vibe of this "family type" hotel. From the Manager, Nicholas (who went above and beyond in helping us with a few problems), through the ranks of the entire staff, the attitude is warm, friendly and genuine. While certainly not a 5 Star hotel, the service is 5 Star by meeting and exceeding your expectations in every way. The rooms are basic but clean (choose the 01 & 02 rooms on each floor which front on the street w/balcony) and comfortable. With only 28 rooms, the biggest surprise is the rooftop bar/lounge/restaurant/internet space. The included breakfast is superb with several choices and an enormous plate of fruit is served with your breakfast; all delivered by one of the friendliest and most competent wait staffs you'll come across. Ha Van is a few short blocks from the beach but is in the heart of where most of the good restaurants are located. Ha Van is a winner and the room pricing is right on and reasonable. I'll be back!!!
