We thought this little place was simply precious.
Located on an alley off the main street, on the opposite side of the road from the Tuan Giao Hotel, the HongKy has prominent signage in English and seems determined to capture the interest of every foreigner passing through town. It's a small, family run place in an attractive house fronted by a pretty courtyard. The rooms are good and clean, with bright blue bathrooms, balconies, some good furnishings, and the obligatory lacy, canopy-style mozzy nets on the beds. It'll seems a bit incongruous if you arrive caked in dust and mud after biking all day. An internet station is available at 10,000 dong per hour and bike and motorbike rental is available. The owners also run a cafe on the main road — which doubles up as a photography shop — offering the same menu as is available at the house. If the gate on the house is locked when you arrive, try the cafe. Emails and the mobile number seem to be routed to someone who speaks reasonable English.
