Photo of Viewkong Hotel
From the dark-grey tiled hallways that reminded us of our long-since torn-down elementary school to the massive yet dreary lobby with music that made us feel like we were on a carnival ride, it was all very dated at research time. And yet, the rooms just might be worth the price simply for the tremendous Mekong views. Reached by a lift, the one that we checked out sported a firm bed, TV, old air-con unit and fridge, dark bathroom with tub, a couple of wicker chairs, a painting of Mt Fuji and glass doors opening onto a balcony that wasn’t furnished. We noticed a few scuffmarks on the walls and all of the furnishings appeared to be from a bygone era, but still it’s reasonable value for the view and a complimentary breakfast served on the hotel’s enviable riverside dining terrace. Receptionists spoke limited English and didn’t seem overly thrilled to do their jobs. We were told that the Viewkong will undertake major renovations in the not-so-distant future. The hotel is a little out of the way -- around 1.5 kilometres south of the clock tower. If you don’t mind spending considerably more cash on a riverfront room, check out the River Hotel, about a kilometre further south down Highway 12.
