This typical Vietnamese Mini-Hotel will appeal to those looking for cheap, clean, safe accomodation at a budget price. Located on Tran Phu Street along the waterfront, this hotel is centrally located in the middle of Nha Trang Beach and provides comfortable, strictly no frills rooms, with seaview rooms going for a 10% premium. All prices are by the room, not per person, and you should feel free to try to negotiate a cheaper rate. At the time of our stay, we had four sharing two double beds with a seaview room at 400,000 dong and three in a similar set-up in the (windowless) back of the hotel paying 350,000 dong. (about US$22.) This hotel has no elevator, no parking, and no meals. The bathrooms are clean if spartan, and well tiled, with 2 soaps, 2 terrycloth hand towels, no shampoo or other extras, toilet paper, a toilet, sink, and shower (no tub). The rooms feature two double beds, covered with fresh bedsheet-mattress cover, and pillows and a blanket is provided but it traditional Vietnamese fashion, no top sheet is provided though they are available on request. Sheets and towels are not changed during your stay unless you request. Rooms have good airconditioning operated by hand held remote. There is also a mini-fridge, and TV with remote provided a limited selection of channels, but with good reception. A slice above backpacker accomodation, fussy travellers will be best advised to look elsewhere. For those whose needs are limited to quiet, safe accomodation, clean rooms, good hot water and airconditioning, and perhaps an unobstructed view of the sea, one could do much worse than the Thanh thanh Hotel while staying in Nha Trang.
Note that while you will have excellent access to the waterfront, the beach at Nha Trang is very long and you would need hours to walk the full length. The Cham site, and port for cruising to the off-shore islands are too far to walk to from this hotel. However, the street is lively, eating options of every scale from street vendor to fancy restaurant abound, and one or two blocks in from the seafront does provide you with a true Vietnamese shopping experience. Be prepared for the hawkers eager to sell you anything and everything but they are pleasant as hawkers go and a smile and polite "no, thank-you" are all you will need. Take some time to get to know the regulars and you may have a truly authentic cultural experience. There are many places in Vietnam that offer far more than Nha Trang but the city is gearing for tourism and has something to offer to those new to the Vietnamese culture and experience.
