Simple and friendly
Set right opposite the town square in the centre of Sin Ho, the Phuc Tho Hotel has a lot more going for it than just the location.
The gleaning facade overlooking the street and square offers up three floors of rooms, each with a shared though unfurnished terrace dotted with small palms and other greenery. From there you look over the square and Sin Ho market is just steps away.
Rooms (from 200,000 dong) are simple but clean, well kept and not of a bad size. The beds are as hard as the bathrooms are modest, but after half a day on a bike or in a bus, they’re welcoming enough. Staff were friendly enough but there wasn’t much English on hand.
If in the very unlikely situation the hotel is full or not to your liking, the larger but pretty charmless Thanh Binh sits towards the western edge of town, perhaps a ten minute walk from the Phuc Tho.
