Located right on the main road, Phu Quoc An Guesthouse offers large, bright, clean rooms with private bathrooms.
The tile floors sparkle and though there are only a few pieces of furniture, everything is kept orderly and tidy. Budget travellers can look forward to WiFi, air-con or fan and new-ish hot water bathroom. The room we saw even had a foot rinse area, handy since you are walking distance to Long Beach. This one would please most flashpackers.
When we visited in December 2015, heavy construction was underway on the main road and on neighbouring land. Any accommodation, be it budget or high-end, is at risk of construction noise as Long Beach is undergoing a sweeping building boom, so the inconvenience may be worth overlooking for the price.
