Great midrange value
Thien Nga Hotel is a great midrange option, especially since they’ve dropped rates over time in accordance to the gentle wear and tear and the stiff competition in town.
It provides far more modernity and comfort than other similarly priced hotels in the area, and the view from the balcony in the superior rooms are a big selling point.
On a previous review of this property, it had been recently renovated. As of May 2016, cheerful pale yellow walls look like they could use a fresh coat of paint and the beds, which feel like a foam mattress, could use new linens. However, the bones of the room are great as you get solid wood desk, wardrobe with a full length mirror, flatscreen TV, minibar, bedside plugs, safety box, air-con and WiFi. Fixtures and the bathtub/shower combo in the bathroom feel dated, though you can’t fault the clean tiles and bright lighting.
Balconies have a patio set, and it’s the spot to grab a minute of relaxation after a day haggling with Hoi An’s tailors. If you can, get a room in the back for a view over the neighbouring crops. You can also relax on a terrace at the front of the hotel or out back, next to the small undercover pool. At this rate, the rooms are good value and within reach for flashpackers. It’s a standout on Ba Trieu Street, which has plenty of backpacker hovels.
