Budget option in town
This local modern guesthouse is located in town close to the Superdong Ferry booking office and the nightmarket.
Similar to our advice for Lien Tho Guesthouse, another Duong Dong town accommodation option, if clean and inexpensive is more important than location, then Ngoc Tuyet is a decent place to stay and a base for island explorations rather than a dream beachfront vacation. Ngoc Tuet Guesthouse feels new and rooms have freshly painted walls, windows for natural light, shiny dark wood furniture including a desk and wardrobe, air-con, fan, flatscreen TV, WiFi, a large bed and a clean tile bathroom with a countertop, towel rack and shower curtain.
It’s certainly not the cheapest local guesthouse in town – the truly frugal can walk around to hunt for a no frills bargain. You could save a couple dollars at the older and more basic Hiep Phong Guesthouse just across the street. The helpful and friendly proprietress there also speaks excellent English. Both Ngoc Tuyet Guesthouse and Hiep Phong are good options for those who want to stay in Duong Dong town. However, if you’re a budget conscious traveller who has been told it’s impossible to get a cheap private room close to Long Beach, that’s not true. Check out clean and reasonably priced Hiep Thoai Hotel. Even cheaper are Sunny Resort and Phu Quoc An Guesthouse.
