Hung Cuong Hotel

Hung Cuong Hotel

Central and comfortable

More on Chau Doc

If Hotel Trung Nguyen is a bit too back to basics (though we wouldn’t describe it as such), then the towering Hung Cuong Hotel may fit the bill.

Travelfish says:

Owned by the same–named bus company, the hotel is poised over the central square of downtown Chau Doc, and, with their buses stopping out front, you can get a bus onwards from here without needing to head out to the bus station (obviously you don’t need to be a guests to use the buses).

Inside, the rooms are smart and clean, of a decent size, and come with the typical fittings such as air–con, LCD TV, coffee and tea and a kettle, Thai prawn crackers (yes, we ate both packs) and a comfortable bed. One point worth noting is there is a temple right beside the hotel, and it can be a bit noisy with chanting and bells.

Staff speak some English and we found them to be helpful. If you’d like to spend a little more, the brand spanking new Hanh Phat Hotel is diagonally across the park from here. We felt the rooms were not such good value—they do have a high floor bar though (8th floor if we remember correctly) which has outstanding views over downtown Chau Doc—drink prices are a bit higher than what you pay at ground level though.
