Green Lotus Hotel

Green Lotus Hotel

Convenient to the market and bus station

More on Cao Lanh

Where Lan Thai Ngoc is convenient to eating and boozing, the Green Lotus (also referred to under its Vietnamese name, Khach San Bong Sen Xanh) is better situated for the bus station, Cao Lanh market and the generally more developed area of town.

The four floor hotel felt very new, with bright and very clean rooms, which were spacious and offered quite decent views over the surrounds of southern Cao Lanh. Facilities were simple. The hotel is air–con throughout, with hot water showers (with a glass enclosed shower cubicle), a minibar and a bed side table, but lacked a bedside light (at least in the room we were shown).

The very friendly front desk staffer said there was WiFi throughout, but some online reviews say it can be patchy, so if this is a big deal, check the signal in the room before accepting it (the hotel has plenty of rooms). Aforementioned staff were friendly, though English was limited.

If you’re just in Cao Lanh for an overnight stay, this is the better option as it is easy walking distance to the bus station and a few eateries. We did prefer though the area up around Lan Thai Ngoc Hotel for the better range of evening eateries and drinking holes—but, as mentioned the laneway that hotel is on is unlit.
