Carpe DM Hotel
Ranked #1 of 315 Nha Trang B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 November 2011

The Carpe DM Hotel is a modern, brand new Hotel in Nha Trang. Out of the crowdy central streets, still close to everything, even the beach. The rooms are modern, spacious and spotless, with even a great balcony (Not common in Vietnam) The Hotel Owner is full of precius advises on what to do and how. He helped me buying for me a cheap ticket for a night bus to Saigon. Just sleep here if you want a cheap, central, great Hotel!

Resident in Vietnam for the past 20 years I seldom came back to Nha Trang. While browsing to get an Hotel I came across few comments on local hotels. Bingo! I selected the right one! Waking up next morning: The very soft sound of a Yak 52 taking off... as a former pilot I wished to jump on the seat and dream of this marvel. I looked outside to see the very green sight of this small – almost unused landing strip. My web choice was perfect! I discovered that an Hotel can be normally built in Vietnam with all the 3 stars hotel qualities .. at an incredible price of 20$ per night! The owner and his wife are really there to make sure all is near perfection.
At least there is now a hope that one day all Vietnamese hotels shall reach this high quality level!

Room Tip: Nearby there is a nice (best in town for quality) Italian restaurant: Fernando. Just to say that it...

We booked Carpe DM as a result of the reviews we read on Tripadvisor and weren't disappointed. In fact it's up there with the nicest hotels we've stayed in after 10 months on the road.

The rooms are a great size, incredibly clean and have all the modern conveniences you can think of including a decent sized balcony. It is just 3 minutes walk from Nha Trang's main strip but incredibly peaceful. The value for money is superb.

However, what makes this place really stand out is the owners who couldn't be more helpful if they tried, going so far as letting us have a shower in their own bathroom after we'd checked out before we set off on the nightbus to HCMC.

If ever we are in Nha Trang again we wouldn't hesitate to stay.

We stayed at the Carpe DM Hotel for 2 nights at the end of Sept 2011 in a beautiful, modern room for a very reasonable rate. The owners Danny and his wife are truly gracious hosts and were helpful in so many ways, providing advice on sights to see and good restaurants to visit. The location is just off the main "party" scene - close enough to walk to but far enough so that we could get a good night's sleep.

This is definitely the best place to stay in Nha Trang!

Carpe DM is a very new hotel, extremely well located, walking distance from the beach and all restaurants.
The owners (Danny, a Belgian guy married to a Vietnamese lady) are very nice, relax and helpful.
We are a family of 6: 2 adults and 4 children (13,11,6,5 years old) and could share a big family room for an extremely reasonable price. The room is super clean, with balcony, very comfortable beds, AC and a bath.
You have all the comfort of a 5 stars hotel...if not even better.
Highly recommend this place.
We were supposed to stay for 1-2 nights but the place feels so much like at home that couldn't leave and stayed 5 nights.

We have seen several hotels in Nha Trang, all with great photoshopped pictures, but in reality it didn't satisfy at all. Through a tip of a local photographer we went to Carpe DM, just opened this year.

This hotel has perfect modern rooms. Big windows, which make the rooms bright. The view is great, looking over the mountains (3d floor). The rooms are big and clean, have a great bed, good and silent air-con, fan, nice balcony, luxurious bathroom, nice couch, even a desk, lcd tv with satellite and wifi ! Not to forget; a daily filled minibar, including french wines!

The hotel is in a small alley just 2 streets away from the touristy part. In the street people are playing boardgames and children are playing football, which gives it a very local feeling. There are many great restaurants just a 2 minute walk.

The owner and his wife take personal care of the service and tried to make our stay as easy as possible. The owner gives honest tourist information. Every morning we got icecoffee in the room, for a very good price. We rented a motorbike from the hotel (also very good price!) which they put in a sercured parking spot at night, and it was standing in front of the hotel in the morning waiting for us!

A real treat after two months of backpacking! we will come back for sure :)
