“Great value, fantastic service”
Reviewed April 11, 2011

We stayed for two nights in April 2011. The Ha Van was a bit cheaper than other places we have stayed on our trip but we picked it based on Tripadvisor reviews. Overall we were impressed - adequate, clean rooms, great breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff. Very good value for $26 a night!

Very often the safety of name-brand resorts leads to a generic and unmemorable experience. You will avoid that trap if you stay here. The first impression you will have (aside from the physical view of the hotel itself) will be of the desk staff. And it will be a very good impression. They are friendly (charming, even) and competent and able to comprehend and competently answer any question you have. And usually there are only one or two of them ... since they do their jobs so well that is all that is needed (in contrast to many hotels in Vietnam that are overstaffed with under-performers who often treat guests as an annoyance that will go away if properly ignored). The second impression will be of the hallways and your room. We stayed in the cheapest room category and it was perfectly adequate ... the furniture was basic but functional and well-chosen. The bed linen was clean and everything seemed to be to a good standard. Your final impression will probably be of the rooftop lounge where you can relax on their sofas and take in the view while you use the free wi-fi ... have something to eat and/or get a cold drink from their reasonably-priced menu. You will remember this rooftop, if nothing else. The staff here is of the same quality as the front desk ... and somebody has very good taste in music (yes, similar to mine) and knows the proper volume for the setting (i.e. not blaring). You will also eat breakfast here ... which will almost certainly please you.

It isn't on the beach, but that location is almost certainly overrated.

We are very happy with our experience at Ha Van hotel (we're still here!). The ladies at the desk speak excellent English, so booking tours, busses and dives was simple. They also hire out scooters, motor bikes and bicycles. The breakfasts are delicious and generous- freshest fruit! Very cheap drinks at the rooftop bar- love the Banana smoothies! The rooms are clean and bright- great air-con, flat screen television. Showers not enclosed though. Rooms around $26AU. Overall, a great stay in a great city.

At $27/night, though a bit more expensive than hotels we've stayed elsewhere in Vietnam, it was worth every dollar: clean, lovely well appointed and furnished room with comfortable bed, friendly and helpful staff, and the rooftop restaurant and bar is a wonderful hang-out. Breakfast - with 5 or 6 options available, including eggs and fresh fruit - was generous, well presented and wonderful value. And the hotel is close to the beach and all the action of downtown Nha Trans. In a word, great value!

The hotel has got a beautiful rooftop lounge. As is was raining all day long we had to stay in the hotel and still could enjoy and relax that day in the lounge. Don't miss the nice croissants. Great breakfast and the staff is very friendly. Good location. Clean rooms. Quick laundry service We would stay again at Ha Van.

First off, this was my favorite hotel stay in Vietnam. Stayed at Ha Van 5 days based on reviews on TA and glad we did. This is a great little budget boutique hotel. Stayed in a standard room for $26/night, which was very reasonable considering the rates we have been paying during other parts of our vacation. The room was clean and comfortable. However, it can get a little noisy due to thin walls and ceilings, which is not the fault of the staff, but a structural one.

The staff in the lobby were first rate and always friendly. They would not be out of place in a 4-star boutique facility. I would like to give special recognition to the gal on the evening shift and assistant the gal during the day. They were both smiling and very helpful with choosing tours and attractions to visit in Nha Trang. The day shift manager gal was a little dry and not as enthusiastic and should loosen up a little.

The lounge on the 5th floor was very cozy and comfortable. The quality of food was great and the prices even better. I tried many items including the fresh and fried spring rolls, salads, wings, sandwiches and satays numerous times. Everything was great. I especially enjoyed the double cheeseburger and was disappointed they ran out of beef our last night of our stay. The staff in the lounge were not quite as attentive and smiley as the lobby staff, but nothings perfect. The restaurant staff on the other side of the 5th floor were friendly and the cooks always smiled when delivering our food. The free breakfast was good, especially the fresh fruit.

I was a little sad leaving knowing most likely the hotels I will be staying at in Hoi An will most likely not compare to Ha Van and as of this writing, unfortunately is true so far.

To the staff at the Ha Van, keep up the great work!!

We recently had an eight night stay at the Ha Van hotel. The hotel as a whole is absolutely great; the girls on the front desk speak excellent English and are extremely helpful advising on anything, making phone calls for taxis and with the help of a local map print-out where to go etc… I can only comment on the balcony rooms, but for a budget hotel they are top notch, great aircon, drench shower with loads of water, clean and spacious. The rooftop bar/restaurant is ideal for a quiet drink or meal after a hard days swimming or walking about or for a relaxing evening if you wish. You can always get a cup of tea for 10,000 dong at anytime and the beer and food are cheap too. Free broadband access is a bonus keeping in touch with friends/family. The staff on the rooftop, namely Mr Tu, Miss Nga, Tam, Ngat and a young girl that serves breakfast before going to school are always smiling and friendly. For the price this is an excellent choice.
