Vietnam, Nha Trang – Muong Thanh Hon Chong Apartment

Two weeks in this two bedroom, two bathroom apartment across the road from the beach and the very popular, Chong Rocks. Another Airbnb listing and this is a very tall, 40 floor apartment building on a corner site with another two apartment blocks next to it.Muong Thanh Hon Chong Apartment_Nha Trang_VietnamThe lounge and kitchen is one long, open plan area with a small balcony at the end. View from the balcony was straight across to the building next door with some views behind the building and towards the beach if you stood at the right angle. The balcony had a washing machine and drying rack. Inside didn’t get much natural light but the furnishings were all comfortable and the kitchen was quite well stocked with cooking utensils and cutlery. The refrigerator was a little dated and leaks at one front corner which has caused a rusty stain on the tile. Large TV in the sitting area has a good array of channels with a few in English, the Wi-Fi was also very good. The bathroom had a leak somewhere we couldn’t determine so a lot of the the floor was wet all the time.Muong Thanh Hon Chong Apartment_Nha Trang_Vietnam_1The main bedroom was very light with large windows and an ensuite. The second bedroom was very dark during the day and very light at night due to the only window sharing a wall with an interior hallway. So in the evening the bright lighting flooded into the room and with only a thin filter blind over the window, none of the florescent light was blocked out. We asked the host for something to help darken the room so the children could sleep easier and they brought us some extra sheets and a blanket to hang up as a temporary solution. Both bedrooms had comfortable beds, large wardrobes and air conditioning units; the master bedroom also had a wall-mounted TV.Muong Thanh Hon Chong Apartment_Nha Trang_Vietnam_2Overall, the hosts were very helpful and managed to accommodate us with an earlier check-in once previous guests had checked-out and the apartment cleaned. Very welcoming after a overnight sleeper train trip.
