Fanciest in town
Easily the flashest digs in downtown Ben Tre, the eight floor Viet Uc (Vietnam Australia) Hotel is the towering edifice on the river a little to the west of the market.
Rooms are immaculate, and we mean immaculate, and the views over the river and the surrounds are easily the best in town. Along with the great views, air-con, LCD TV, mini-fridge, safe, hairdryer, free WiFi and a desk are standard throughout. We found the staff to be professional and helpful, happy to give us a walk through the hotel.
The hotel appears to attract a more business–orientated clientele and these views and better standards do come with a price tag to match. You’ll be paying close to triple (depending on the standard of room you choose) what you would pay at the nearby Hung Vuong.
If you’re comfortable in a modern hotel style property and are hankering over an elevated view, then the Viet Uc is really hard to beat. You’re also just minutes walk from the museum and Ben Tre market. Do shop around for a competitive rate online.
