148-166 Hung Vung St, Ben Tre T: (075) 382 2408 F: (075) 381 0911
Set over three floors, the Hung Vuong Hotel has reasonable mid-range rooms with clean bathrooms (with bathtubs), comfortable beds and pretty good views over the river.
The staff though can be a bit odd, when we asked after the price of a room, we were asked why did we want to know! The rooms are basic but functional but be warned, the beds are rock solid. The location is good, right on the river and a short walk to the market. They also have a small gift shop in the lobby for all of your Ben Tre related knick-knacks. The attached restaurant that has a decent menu in English -- try the pork ribs, we had two plates of them. The hotel hires motorbikes for a steep 280,000 dong per day and can also arrange boat trips should you not find anyone by the river. Free WiFi throughout.
