The hotel was very good value for money. We had a big and quiet room with a very nice balcony. The hotel is walking distance from the beach and a lot of restaurants. We were backpacking and we washed here our clothes. They were nicely hand washed and they were ready very quick. The lady in the reception was unbelievably... More

This was booked for us by our easy rider guide. What a good choice for $16 USD excluding breakfast. Our room was at the back of the hotel and contained 2 double beds and the best en suite we have had in our trip. It was nice to have a fully contained shower cubicle. The staff were very helpful and... More

This hotel seemed to be recently renovated and is located on one of the main streets of Nha Trang. Restaurants, bars and beach are within walking distance. We got a room with a huge bathroom and three comfortable beds. Perfect budget option if you want a private room for a reasonable price.

We ended up staying here as our other hostel booking did not work out (no one's fault, our room was occupied by an injured traveller). We had a top floor room facing the main strip. It was a little noisy but the big windows and shared balcony were great. Room was very clean and a decent size and the staff... More

I stayed at the Sao Mai for a 2 week vacation in Nha Trang. The hotel staff were very helpful and accommodating, including moving me to a new temporary room in the middle of the night because of a power outage.

“The hotel is situated about 5 minutes walk from the sea. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in the street and neighbouring area. The little restaurant on the left-handside as you come out of the Sao Mai serves nice simple food. Mai Loc Photo Gallery, next to the hotel, is well worth visiting. There are some superb black and white portraits of hill tribe people superbly photographed. An ideal place to purchase some original photos from a genuine and excellent photographer, a true artist.”
