Reviewed May 5, 2012

This hotel was pretty basic, and not what we expected for the price of $137 per night. The room we had was the superior suite, so it was large, but we asked for twin beds and got a king size double with a typically hard mattress. Only two small pillows, and basic two towels and two hand towels. The shower curtain was moudy and dirty. The staff were not that friendly, and breakfast was limited to soup or eggs, and one drink - no fruit juices just tea, coffee or lemon cordial. The room was noisy because the staff who lived above seemed to be dagging furniture across the floor most of the late evening. The airconditioning barely worked in the 37 degree heat. The hotel is one block back from the beach on a dusty dirt laneway, and there is no outlook from rooms below the 5th floor. There are some fairly OK restaurants along the beachfront, but nothing else, so shopping meant a taxi trip back into Danang itself.

Visitors who love the beach will find this accommodation acceptable, and good value for a budget traveler. The Hotel is is a few minutes from the beach. There is a restaurant attached to the Hotel where meals and drinks can be ordered. It is also within easy access to a few local restaurants. The Reception and Restaurant staff are not very fluent in english, but they will do their best to help the visitor. The main highlight being close proximity to the beach and the beach promenade. A trip to the main city centre will cost about $4 US Good value for money

Room Tip: Some rooms are small but Ok for solo traveler. Please ask the reception for the type of room requir...

We recently stayed here on the 4th floor for $13 per night - great value. Basic rooms and very close to the beach. Nice shower, cable tv with some English channels.

I did find it particularly noisy. The rooms open immediately onto the floor landing so anyone walking to their room and talking is immediately by your bed head. This coupled with dog barking, rooster chicken wake ups and staff cleaning rooms early meant i needed earplugs to get to sleep at 11pm and to remain asleep after 6.30am. This being said with the earplugs in I had no issues sleeping.

There is a lift so no problems with higher floors. I suspect the more expensive rooms may be better positioned.

There is nothing nearby. Beach was quiet, and we saw next to no tourists. There were a couple of restaurants on the beach front but we didn't visit these.

With hindsight we would have skipped Da Nang altogether and would have spent an extra night in Mui Ne or Hoi An. The town doesn't have a touristy feel and resembles a building site. We did take a taxi and took a walk along the river one night, but this was short lived with nothing much going on either.

Staff were friendly, helped us book our train ticket. Restaurant was basic with most staff not speaking or understanding English. May return again for a super cheap room, but I can't see us going back to Da Nang any time soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room with ocean view

Stayed here for four nights, had a room on top floor, it was huge! Very clean and lovely view of the sea. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Beach is two minutes walk and a number of restaurants on the beachfront. Would recommend this hotel, it was great value for money!

For $30 per night plus an extra $5 for a third person, we got a large suite with separate bedroom, and couch. Our 3rd person slept on a bed that was brought up right away by the management staff. We also rented a motorbike for $6/day from them. For the price and views, it cannot be beat, but it is a 2 star, local hotel. Breakfast wasn't bad - order the eggs with the French bread. Our last stay was at Lifestyle Resort for $130/night so this was quite a change, but not a bad experience overall.

Got a great room on the 6th floor for $20 incl breakfast. Staff was really helpful. Only problem is the restaurant closes by 8:30 at night and its a bit far removed from places to rent motorbikes or any public transport. But otherwise, we did really like the place

First night we book 1 night through agoda, arrive here at night so it looks like no where, in the morning we realize that our room is awesome at the 6th floor where you can sea the beach from your bed through the window, the meals in this hotel is not bad too. For second night we want to try other hotel and after searching, we end up to this hotel again :)
