Prime Hotel Nha Trang Vietnam

"Oh no, we are out of Vietnamese dongs!" I can't help but panic. The fare meter runs faster than the taxi cab! "We'll find a solution once we arrived at the hotel." The hubby calmly suggested. Had I listened, I wouldn't have missed the beautiful coastal views greeting us along the way. Look at that! Isn't it pretty?

We booked at the Prime Hotel Nha Trang for a night. It's a 3-star hotel. We choose Nha Trang out of all the wonderful spots in Vietnam because I wanted to do the mud bath experience. Since the hotel is part of Haidang Group they offered us a 30% discount at Galina Mud Bath and Spa.

The Room

The room we stayed in is quite big. We got a king-sized bed with a separate living area. Did you notice that glass bathroom wall? This room is designed with couples in mind. Hehe.

Hotel Views

A small swimming pool and a pool bar can be found on the hotel's 15th floor overlooking the South China Sea and the city of Nha Trang. Sadly, it wasn't maintained during our visit.

See that island across the bay (second photo below)? That's Vinpearl island. You can either stay at Vinpearl Resort Nha Trang or enjoy a day at the amusement park situated on the island. The theme park features water slides and games, a large aquarium, a wave pool, rides, and shopping. It can reach through a cable car connecting Nha Trang City to this island resort or by ferry.

Booking.com Experience

Prime Hotel is a good option for mid-range budget travelers. We paid  1,063,287 VND which is equivalent to $75.95 SGD using conversion method: 1 SGD = 14,000 VND for a night's stay.

Yup, you'll instantly become a millionaire/billionaire in Vietnam just like in Indonesia. Actually, while booking the room online it says the price is at $49.99 SGD but, when we got there we are asked to pay $75.95 SGD. Hmm... quite misleading. Still, it's within budget so it's ok.

Prime Hotel Nha Trang Review

Location and the 30% discount at Galina Mud Bath and Spa are the reasons why we choose this hotel. It's a short walking distance to the beach, night market, restaurants i.e. Louisana Brewhouse (must-try) and the Sailing Club, Galina Mud Bath and Spa, the cultural center. Check out my Galina Mud Bath and Spa experience here.

Prime Hotel is located behind the Novotel Hotel. We went through a small street to get to the lobby. In all honesty, I'm expecting to see the bay from the hotel lobby or the breakfast area, but nope, you'll have to climb up the floors to see the view. Also, the internet connection is slow and you can hear the conversation of the other guests next door. Oops!

The hotel is rather small but neat. The staff is helpful and friendly. It's thanks to their hospitality that we are able to pay the taxi cab driver from the story above. Oh yeah, this is important, make sure to negotiate with the cab driver for a fixed rate rather than a metered fare. This way you won't be taken advantage of.

Did you know?

The hotel rooms in Nha Trang are much more affordable compared to other cities around the world. If you can, book higher-end options like the Novotel Hotel or the Sheraton Hotel.

Overall, Prime Hotel Nha Trang is a good choice for budget travelers like us. Location is great and the 30% discount at Galina Mud Bath and Spa is awesome. If you're out all day and only need a place to stay for the night, you might consider staying here. That, if you don't' mind noisy neighbors.

I hope our experience staying at Prime Hotel Nha Trang is helpful. Haven an awesome day! Talk to you soon then.
