Smart modern four-star digs
Easily the flashest (and newest) digs in downtown Vinh Long, if it fits with your budget the Saigon Vinh Long is really difficult to walk past.
Enjoying prime river frontage towards the western end of Vinh Long, the hotel has at least a half dozen floors of well kitted out modern hotel rooms rising from a multi–floor dining and (we think) convention centre. Rooms are well oversized with enough space for a game of indoor cricket and the views, especially from the higher floors, are impressive. Many of the rooms—not just the pricey “river view” rooms, enjoy an outlook over the river.
Fit out includes a good sized bed (with real linen, reading lamps and bedside tables) a desk and a small lounge set from where to enjoy the view. Rooms are air-con throughout and come with typical amenities including free WiFi and a minibar. The bathroom, like the room, was spotless. The hotel also has a swimming pool, though we were unable to see it.
We found the staff friendly and very courteous (even if they seemed a bit surprised to see us wander in). The location is right bedside the night market, so there may be a little noise in the evening, but we wouldn’t expect it to be too bad. If it fits your budget and you’re comfortable in a large hotel, this is a good option.
