“nice but outrageous laundry prices”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Pros:
*Competitive prices if you book with agoda.
*Owner is very nice even though she doesn't speak any English, her employees interpret everything she says.
*Got upgraded to a room with some ocean view.
*Room is kind of new with plenty of toiletries
*Great mattress and bedding


Cons:
*No consistency with breakfast one day we only found very few things to choose from and the following date a buffet with mostly Vietnamese food.
*Housekeeping service was no consistent either, they just came into our bedroom through a few towels on a chair but didn't clean the room/bathroom.
*laundry service is outrageous! we are long term travelers! we are use to doing our laundry at hotels at least twice a week, we do not even ask cuz prices are consistent among the 3-4star hotels in Vietnam but we had to pay about $9 for 1.5 kilo of clothes and they didn't even folded. We were use to paying about $1 per kilo or about $3 when it is per item.
*hotel windows would offer a better view if they were cleaner. A lot of dust got stuck and the weather made it worst.
*location is good if u plan on going into the beach but there is construction going on infront of the back beach that u have to go out of your way to make it to the beach. We decided to move to another hotel in the front beach w better views and cheaper price.
* wanted to extend one more night but agoda didn't have the standard rooms available so I asked the staff and they say they have rooms available but double the price I paid in agoda so it was no worth to stay there when they weather was not perfect to go into the beach anyways so we moved to the otherwise of the beach.
*taxis are expensive if u want to goto the fromnt beach. We paid from $6-$10 round trip depending on what part of the other beach we wanted to go.

We stayed here for four nights and had mixed feelings. Rooms are small but you can get an awesome view out the window. No balconies. The first night our air conditioner didn't work but they fixed it promptly although it took a while. The water is often cold without rhyme or reason and is never very hot. The buffet breakfast is intermittent although breakfast is included. The food is very pedestrian and basic. They were pleasant and the beds comfy but don't expect too much. It's just a budget motel.

Great new hotel. Polite and helpfull staff, great, clean and quiet rooms. Nice big LCD TV with many international channels. Good wifi. Great location near the beach, and only a short taxidrive away from restaurants/bars.
Breakfast was average, but good enough for us.

Me and my wife enjoyed our stay here. We will be back, for sure.

Room Tip: Get room with oceanview.

I chose this hotel based on the on line reviews. I erred. The first room they showed smelled ... like the toilet broke. They tried to say it was just vacated and cleaned, but hadn't had a chance to sit out. I opted for a different, and more expensive room with a balcony. This room appeared clean, but the bathroom was dirty and had the same odor. Upon request, they came in to clean and spray the bathroom with Airfresh. They said the bathroom vent needed to be left on to sit it out.

If it were only that, it would be somewhat palatable. Upon closer inspection, there were blood smears on the bathroom wall, water stain on the wall adjoining the bathroom, clumps of hair and a half empty water bottle under the bed, etc. Gross!!!

The filth undercut what initially appeared to be a bright and nicely appointed room.

I really enjoyed the time that I spent at this hotel. It is not fancy but the rooms were clean, it was conveniently located, and the staff was very helpful and accommodating. The laundry service was also very inexpensive. I rented a scooter there and probably paid a bit more than I should have, however that was much more convenient than running about town looking for one. There is also a city gym, the location of which is difficult to describe, for those of you looking to exercise. The only other option was an extremely pricey nearby hotel, which had a very complete and fully supplied gym, but was $20 per day to use.

This hotel is located nearby a large hillside park with a colossal statue of Jesus on the top, that I found interesting to visit, and a welcoming landmark while driving about the area. There are a lot of small places to eat, and to buy water basically next-door to the hotel.

What really impressed me about the Corvin was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.

Found the Corvin on Trip Advisor recommendations and I wasn't disappointed. I knew what to expect. It was clean and reasonably priced and very accessible to the beach. . .right across the street. The rooms did have a narrow balcony that over looked the beach. . .side view but it was fine. The breakfast was more Asian than western but it was tasty. Down the street, my husband, our friend and I found a great little local Vietnamese restaurant with really good and cheap food . . .and cold beer.
