Flashest in town
Dien Bien Phu St, Gia Nghia T: (050) 544 665 F: (050) 546 345
This brand new three-star place racks up its demerits by being very inconveniently located outside of town, in the shadow of the nearby military base.
It's an impressive place for little Gia Nghia -- the rooms are of three-star quality, and the lobby is decorated in that wonderfully overblown Vietnamese rococo style we've all come to love. It's the only place in town with cable TV, but still no English-language channels. Still, the rooms are very new and very clean, and if you plan on using transport during your stay anyway, it's not a bad choice.
