With it’s position right on Highway 1A, the honking never stops but frugal travellers may be willing to plug up those ears for the location.

Photo of Ngoc Huong Hotel
The Ngoc Huong is one kilometre north of Quang Ngai bus station, and there’s a bus stop around the corner for the cheap regional bus that goes to Son My Museum (site of the My Lai massacre), My Khe beach and Sa Ky port, gateway to Ly Son island.?

It’s a bargain price and along with the sound of trucks blasting their horns, you get the bare basics with private bathroom, air-con and considering it’s a Highway 1A accommodation, a decent level of cleanliness. The hotel looks promising on the outside, a little long in the tooth on the inside. Rooms have a window, air-con and fan, a mini-fridge, mirror and bed with rock hard mattress–there’s no top-sheet, just a blanket. The door has an inside door latch for extra security.

Tall and big folk will struggle with the bathroom as its ceiling is lower than the rest of the room. The bathroom is a functional wetroom with shower, the hot water lasting a respectable 15 minutes before starting to turn lukewarm. The reception is welcoming and though no English is spoken, they seem to be better with communicating by writing it down. As soon as we mentioned “Ly Son” the receptionist wrote out instructions on when and where to get the early morning 05:30 bus to Sa Ky—which unfortunately turned out to be incorrect. Mai Linh Bus #3 to Sa Ky port (Cang Sa Ky) departs from Quang Ngai bus station. To get to the closest stop to Ngoc Huong Hotel, walk to the intersection, turn left on Le Thanh Ton St, take the first street (Duong Nguyen Du) on your right. Just a few metres up is a blue and white bus stop sign. This bus will take you to My Khe beach, Son My museum and the port for Ly Son island.

Ngoc Huong is fine for a one night pit stop. Perhaps an independent traveller on a motorbike would welcome it after a long day of driving and would rather not navigate into town—there’s a parking garage and plenty of eateries within a 10-minute walk radius.

If you don’t need to be on Highway 1A or close to the bus station, you’ll find more comfort and less noise staying anywhere else. Ngoc Huong is four kilometres from the train station (about 55,000 dong by metered taxi), and a kilometre north of Quang Ngai bus station. It’s Vietnam so the truck honking is relentless and continues into the night. Taking a room at the back makes no difference. Light sleepers: Avoid.
