Anh Dao Mekong Hotel

Anh Dao Mekong Hotel

Conveniently placed not too far from the river

More on Can Tho

Centrally located Anh Dao Mekong Hotel is just 350m from the river, a convenient spot on a street lined with similar skinny local hotels that run to the river/tourist pier.

Travelfish says:

Compared to the lot, Anh Dao Mekong is a decent pick among them and the building goes deep, stretching further back than expected. The decor won’t win any style awards as everything is rather mismatched but it ticks all the boxes as the rooms have hotel-type furnishings and amenities like a desk, flatscreen TV, air-con and WiFi. Extras include a fridge, kettle and lift.

Typical of local hotels in Can Tho, the lobby is on the first floor accessed by stairs and the cheapest rooms don’t have windows. Higher categories have fancier bathrooms and more space, though the overall decor remains unfashionable and random, some rooms sporting dark furniture, others light furniture, a mix of wall paper and/or tiles.

Anh Dao Mekong is for the traveller who wants a convenient location and something a step above a guesthouse like Thanh Thuy or Thanh Ha. Just have modest expectations—Victoria Can Tho this is certainly not.

For something comparable, check out Ruby CT Hotel, on the same way and a block closer to the river. Ruby CT’s best rooms, which face the road and have windows, are still cheaper than Anh Dao Mekong Hotel’s cheapest windowless room.
