“So-so room but views are to-die-for”
Reviewed October 3, 2006

The ONLY reason why we stayed at My Khe Beach Hotel was that we had an early flight out of Danang and it made more sense to get to the airport on time from within Danang compared to rushing from Hoi An.

Located on the fabled My Khe Beach (aka China Beach), the views did not disappoint. Even though it's called a hotel, I think they were more like holiday flats.

We got a spacious unit out front; with a single and double bed in place, there was still plenty of room to move about. No carpeting though, just ceramic tiles that felt a bit... icky. But it's a practical solution, especially with all the fine sand that you can track back after a stroll on the beach. The toilet was spartan but roomy. Strictly functional. Do close the louvres though; anyone standing on a chair can look in if the louvres are open too wide.

Access to the beach was ok although they did block the shortest route for some strange reason. We had dinner at one of the many seafood restaurants (right turn after you step out of the gates) there. Supremely fresh and tasty like what you'd expect Vietnamese food to be. Cheap too!

It was World Cup season and expectedly, the restaurant/bar just below our room was noisy. I'd expect it to be quieter now World Cup's over; traffic noise was negligible. The air condtioning could've been more powerful but we did sleep ok after sampling the local TV channels.

The real highlight of the stay was catching the glorious sunrise the next morning. In addition to watching and photographing the golden orb rising out of the water, it was great to see the local population fit in some early walking/jogging/swimming/exercise in the rising sun before the workday proper began.

Like checking in, the check-out was unremarkable. We had to leave for the airport before their breakfast service started so we didn't get to sample the spread; we made do with beef noodles at a cafe opposite Danang Airport later. No big loss, I suppose.

If you're looking for a functional place to stay, My Khe Beach Hotel would be a reasonable choice. If you're looking for something more deluxe, I guess the Furama or Sandy Beach Resorts further down the beach would be better.

In either case, the beaches at Danang are pristine and the views are unforgettable. Go there quickly before it becomes over-developed.

  • Liked — Great views, decent location, near beach and seafood places
  • Disliked — Sticky floor, unremarkable staff, useless breakfast timing
  • Tips/Secrets — Watch where you sit on the beach; "rental" for the beachchairs are 1000VND
  • Stayed June 2006, traveled as a couple

This review is for My Khe Beach Hotel (My Khe 1)
241 Nguyen Van Thoai Street
Danang City, Vietnam

We stayed one night in April 2006.

The Receptionist was a nice young lady in ao dai. She let us choose the rooms we like. There are 4 blocks, I think, in this hotel. The main block is where the Reception is located. Next to this is the nicest block having VIP rooms (the main block has too). Next to this nice block on the left we saw a room in the last block with no carpet and very old with twin beds, so we came back to the block on the right hand side of the Reception with 3 small beds in each room. We took room 102 and 103.

I booked through a travel agent in Hanoi for 2 sea view rooms next to each other, US$28net each with breakfast for 2. Room 102 was right under the staircase, so the sea view is not completed. It has a bath tub, but we couldn't use it as it was stuffed with either hair or tissue and nothing to close the drainage to keep water for using the bath tub. The water didn't run down completely if I took a shower in the bath tub, so I had to step on the floor. The towels were very old, small and thin.

Late in the night during our sleep, at least 10 mosquitoes started to bite even though we turned on the air con. I had a dream that I used a spray bottle to spray the mosquitoes. End of the room, there's a door to the back yard. I saw a water pump machine near my room with little noise but didn't bother me if I close the door. From the back door I also saw local people houses very near the hotel. Old area. A little dirty.

The room is quite spacious. The air con, the tivi worked well. They gave us a hot water pot for our tea. The charge for telephone out from the room was not expensive, so does the laundry. The set menu for meal in their restaurant was very good at VND55,000 but I couldn't order. They said on the day restaurant had to close for an outside catering for a wedding.

The hotel restaurant was quite nice and clean, but looked very empty as there were only 6 foreigners including us having breakfast that day. When I came down to eat around 7am, they had not opened. We asked them to prepare and we came back after 8.

To sea bath, we crossed the very nice big street and saw really crowded beach. The hotel has a big parking lot but most of the scooters are from local people coming to the beach who are not hotel guests.

Leaving the Reception Counter on your left hand side, you’ll see a restaurant. A few steps on the right lead you to another restaurant. We ate in both. A course of local food is about VND35,000. Right on the beach if you like, you can eat seafood cooked right there, hot and tasty at much lower cost. At least 100 booths selling food on the beach in front of and nearby My Khe Hotel.

What impressed me much was there were people clearing the sand, and guests had good practice of keeping clean. About 7pm there were staff from a company (Danang Tourism maybe I’m not sure) asked you to go up as it was not safe to swim in the night.

We rent scooters VND15,000 an hour to visit Marble Mountain (Ngu Hanh Son) which took us 2 hours for going around and bought some stone products, no time to visit any mountain in the group of 5 mountains. The lady selling stone souvenirs in the My Khe sold the same price with what we bought outside, but hers was not real stone. Some items of her was having good price so after leaving Marble Mountain, we came back to buy from her.

The curtain for door and windows was a very low cost cloth. The room had no carpet. The mattress was going down when I slept on. The linen was clean but simple. The room I stayed was worth US$20 maximum. When dialing Reception, they just “aloh” instead of greeting like in other hotels. I regret we booked into this place.
