Con Son Island offers plenty of local budget hotels but Red Hotel is the best, offering tidy and clean rooms with fresh linens, daily housekeeping and warm smiles every time you pass through the lobby.

Photo of Red Hotel
While the mattress is typical Southeast Asia (very firm), the other creature comforts make up for it: large fridge, kettle, air-con, fan, WiFi, TV (no English channels), hairdryer, bedside table and window, making the whole room light and bright. Everything looks to be in good working order. The clean bathroom has hot-water shower of medium pressure, along with hooks, towel rack and packets of shampoo. The bathroom also has a window allowing it to dry super quick.

No English is spoken but the sweet family go out of their way to help, whether you want to rent a motorbike for 100,000 dong a day or need some drinks, snacks or toiletries, which they sell in their lobby at a reasonable price. They even offered to wash some of our very muddy clothes for free after we returned from hiking. The town is small so nothing is very far, but Red Hotel does have a fantastic location just steps to the ocean, night market, Caffe Infiniti and main street of restaurants.

The only drawback of the hotel is the echo-y halls. When Vietnamese tourists return from their midnight pilgrimage to the cemetery/Vo Thi Sau’s grave, the halls echo with talking and slamming doors. If you’re a light sleeper bring earplugs. Overall, this is a wonderful simple place. Highly recommended.
