Loads of rooms

More on Tra Vinh

The Tranh Tra is another centrally located hotel in Tra Vinh, but this one is a bit older school in look and standards.

Travelfish says:

Being an old school hotel isn’t necessarily a bad thing—the rooms are generously sized for one thing—but otherwise this feels like an 80s property which has had a few coats of paint over the year. The receptionist who greeted us spoke quite reasonable English and walked us through a couple of rooms without complaint.

As mentioned rooms are of a reasonable size and come with a desk and chair and an old box-style TV. Rooms are air-con throughout and there is WiFi as well apparently. Bathrooms are aged and not looking the best—about on par with the Gia Hoa 2.

One advantage of staying here is they have a tonne of rooms spread across their floors (there is an elevator) so if you’re in town during a festival or conference and hotels are filling up, this is a good bet. Location is excellent—a short walk to the market and there is both a noodle joint and a cafe metres from the lobby.

This wouldn’t be out first choice in Tra Vinh, but it is an inoffensive choice in the middle of town and the rates are not unreasonable. They have quite a confusing price system, take the listed rates as indicative only as we were quoted 340,000 as a walk in—a price not listed at all on their rate card.
