Hung Vuong Hotel

Old but decent value

More on Ben Tre

If you want to stay on the river, on the Ben Tre side of town, the dated Hung Vuong Hotel is the most affordable option.

Rooms are set in a couple of floors above the ground floor, where you’ll find reception, a small travel agency and a souvenir shop. As with everything here, the rooms are dated, but they are no great shakes. Sizing is decent for the money and the views over the river are pleasant, but the beds are hard and the fittings are old, dating the room considerably.

The double room we were shown had a couple of chairs and a table (though not a desk), TV, minibar and a decent view over the river. It also had a door which we thought led to a veranda but it was locked and off–limits—a curious arrangement. Other rooms though do have a balcony and are worth the extra money.

Rates make this cheaper than the Oasis, so a good option for those on a budget wanting a river view. Staff can arrange scooter hire if you need to get some wheels. If you have the money though, and want to stay in town, the Viet Uc is a better option in pretty much every way.
