We have 5 places to stay in and around Vung Tau.
Accommodation in Vung Tau can generally be split into two: those closer to Front Beach (Bai Truoc) on the western coast and Back Beach (Bai Sau), the main tourist beach on the eastern side. There are also two rates. Weekday prices are charged from Sunday to Thursday. One Fridays and Saturdays, room rates go up, are not negotiable and the good hotels are often full – if you’re planning to be there on the weekend, book ahead.
We reviewed excellent Sakura Hotel, which is found in an enclave known as A Chau (sandwiched between Hoang Hoa Tham and Phan Chu Trinh Street), which is chock full of mediocre skinny hotels. If budget travellers want to hunt around on foot, we suggest you head to this area.
