“Good hotel - great location”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Nice hotel with lovely spacious room with balcony overlooking river. Not many places to eat in town but ended up spending one night at their restaurant across the road and the next night having a picnic on our balcony watching all the boats on the rivet which was great fun. There's a big supermarket nearby and markets just round the corner. Bear in mind that everywhere closes by 10pm.

We had a double overlooking the river. The room was ok for the price. Good size. Beds comfortable. Bath. But shower head way too low (and I'm short!).
The location is good in terms of being on the river for tours and nice view. But terrible for noise. No problem with karaoke noise, but the river noise starts up at about 5am, very loud. (Hotel is opposite ferry.)
Staff uninterested and unhelpful. Only 1 seemed to have any English. We had a problem with our booking (agent's fault, not the hotel's) and they didn't seem at all interested in trying to help sort it out.
Ok Vietnamese breakfast options but terrible western options (eg. coffee without sugar).
For dinner, the only restaurant nearby seems to be the one across the road where breakfast is provided. But it's worth taking a taxi to Thien Tan.
Before you book this hotel, check out the newish hotel opposite the Coop Mart which is cheaper (and can't be worse).

We stayed in the new wing of this hotel for one. The rooms are OK, especially taking into acoount the price you pay. They are big, clean, the bathroom is OK as well and I found the bed to be quite comfortable. Nothing special but nothing really bad either. Contrary to the other reviews, the stuff we delt with did speak some English. The breakfast was served in the restaurant next door and didn't look too attractive. We organized some baot trips and a minibus to Ho Chi Minh via Cuu Long tourist office - everything as promised with no problems at all.

We stay in Vinh Long every two months. We have stayed in many hotels in the area and this hotel is a good hotel in the area. Do NOT expect 5 star service as this is a 2 star hotel. The rooms are large and spacious which is rare for Vietnam. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and in good condition. Beds are hard as they are in most of this country. This hotel is centrally located and right across from the Mekong River. Breakfast is acceptable but far from exceptional. Hotel staff is friendly BUT they do not speak English. I am lucky because my fiancee is Vietnamese. If you want to take tours stay away from Cuu travel because they will charge you more. To take a boat tour go across the street from the hotel, to the right of the restaurant and negotiate a boat tour. We took a tour, which lasted half the day, for the equivalent of 10USD.

Room Tip: Speak Vietnamese for the best deal.

The location is good - overlooking the river, but this is a dull, uninspiring government- run place. The front desk staff barely speak a word of English and seem little interested in their job. The room was huge and there was a balcony overlooking the water. But the toilet broke down (wouldn't flush) in the middle of the night when I was sick. Staff brought a bucket. We tried to see if we could stay another day to recover, but the place was fully booked with tour groups. The staff called our pick-up for the bus an hour early just to get us out of the room so they could do the plumbing repairs. Breakfast is in the restaurant across the road, on the waterfront. Nice location, but really dull food and staff don't speak any English. We thought this was overpriced for what you got. The private sector could do a lot better with this building. But there isn't much choice in this town. They seem only to cater to tour groups and weren't motivated by independent travelers.

Unfortunately the only major hotel in town. A smaller hotel is located less than a block away, in retrospect might have been a better deal. Compared to other hotels in VN, this was over-priced (520,000 dong/night) for a room that had threadbare sheets and towels, bare-bones furniture. Good location (next to the river and tourist office). The staff is not entirely friendly, but functional. Not a lot of nearby restaurants, though the night-time fish market was fun to walk through. Breakfast included. Free internet.

We looked at 3 places before landing here - they were dumps! Despite unfriendly staff and nothing special rooms, this seemed to be our best bet. Clean, big rooms, nice balcony - though I'd think twice about facing the river, as we did. There was a very loud karaoke outdoors right across the street until very late. Also don't bother with Cuu Long's travel services, they're horribly overpriced. Best part of this hotel was the breakfast, an ample and scrumptious buffet across the street. Good strong AC.
