Cuu Long Hotel
Vinh Long's flashest digs

Vinh Long's flashest downtown digs, the three-star Cuu Long, has two separate locations, one a midrange affair and an older rundown property on the river.
The latter is far cheaper, but seems to be always full -- even when it is obvious nobody is staying there. If you do manage to score a room, ask for one on the upper floors which have commanding views of the river. The newer wing has large, motel-like rooms with air-con, LCD TV and hot-water bathrooms. It’s also one of the only places in town with an elevator. The hotel is popular with groups largely due to its convenient location by both the river and foreigner-friendly eateries. The bar on the ground floor was seemingly put there to satisfy the star rating as it wasn’t open the two times we went there. The rather friendly staff speak quite good English. A reasonable mid-budget option.
