For travellers looking for comfort and value, The World Hotel is worth the kilometre distance from the pier/river.

It’s quite a worldly budget hotel for a pokey town like My Tho. The clean modern rooms, accessible by a lift, are well furnished and equipped. Done up in pleasant light grey and blue hues, rooms are fitted with a contemporary furniture set (bed, bedside table and wardrobe), thick comfy mattress, cotton linens and a table and chair along with wall mounted flat screen TV, mini fridge, air-con, Wi-Fi and kettle.

Comfy with complimentary loo roll beside the bed.

There’s no shortage of light from the bright pot lights and the windows, which can be opened for fresh air. The tile bathroom is also brightly lit and ours had a bathtub/shower combo with hot water. Drinking water is not provided and breakfast is not included.

The hallway floors are dirty, which is not uncommon for budget hotels in Vietnam but an eyesore nonetheless. We had to get rid of a a number of mosquitoes in our room. There was no English spoken when we stayed there. The World Hotel is not perfect, however, it’s one of the best budget accommodation in My Tho and considerably better value compared to what else is available.

Yet another enormous TV.

It’s a good place to hole up for a night if you don’t mind being away from the river and market, which are the main areas of interest. It’s about a 25 minute walk or 18,000 dong by meter taxi from the river to the hotel.

The World Hotel is located down a narrow lane off of main road Ly Thuong Kiet. To go from the hotel to anywhere, the hotel can call you a Mai Linh taxi and it will come to pick you up at no extra charge.
