Hotel Name: Alpha Bird Nha Trang
Address: 51/19/37 Tue Tinh St, Loc Tho Ward, Nha Trang, Vietnam
I stayed at the Alpha Bird Nha Trang in Nha Trang, Vietnam. I booked online at the rate of $11.40 USD per night, and I booked it for its price and location in Nha Trang. I was travelling during the pandemic, where Vietnam had contained local outbreaks. There was no international travel though, so places like Nha Trang have been heavily discounting hotels to stimulate domestic travel. thus I got a room so cheap.
The hotel is near the main tourist strip and an easy walk to the beach. The listed address is complicated as it is in an alley and down another alley. You are better off just following Google Maps than trying to decipher the address by the numbers.
The hotel is in what is mostly a residential alley, with a few other small hotels nearby.
There are no shops here, and no through traffic so it is a quiet street.
The building is a typical Vietnamese tall and skinny building.
I was welcomed by a friendly receptionist and then shown my room.
I got a double room with a private bathroom. I made sure my booking was for a room with a window, and I got a corner room with windows on two sides. The room had air conditioning and the bed was extra comfortable. There is free wifi at the hotel, and I had no problem with the reception in my room.
Free water is included, and tea and coffee-making facilities are provided.
The bathroom was one of those glass-box types that have become popular in hotels, where you can see inside the bathroom from your bed. It’s ok for solo travel, but kind of weird if you are travelling with someone and want to go to the toilet. At least they have shower curtains here. I have stayed in places that had no curtains. The shower and toilet area felt as new as the hotel room. To save space, the sink was outside the bathroom area.
There is a pool at the hotel, but like the hotel that I stayed at in Nha Trang the night before, I was wondering how they could fit a pool on this skinny building. There is a pool on the rooftop with a small seated area next to it.
There is hand sanitiser in the elevator to combat Covid-19. I wonder if this will become a permanent fixture in hotels.
And another reminder of the times we live in.
There was no breakfast service here so I went out nearby. The hotel arranged for motorbike rental, and also booked me a taxi for the airport (at a better rate than what Grab was quoting).
