Hotel Name: Bong Hong Hotel
Address: 251A Nguyen Sinh Sac, Sa Dec, Dong Thap Province, Vietnam.
I stayed at Bong Hong Hotel in Sa Dec, Vietnam. I booked it online at the rate of 396,000 VND ($17.20 USD), and I booked it for its location in Sa Dec. The hotel is near the central market area and within walking distance of the bus station.
The Bong Hong Hotel is a 3-star hotel, and it stands out from most other hotels on offer in Sa Dec is it’s a stand-alone building on a large block of land. Most of the hotels are the typical skinny buildings that are common in Vietnam.
The hotel is on a major road, and its size stands out on the road. The ground floor includes the reception area as well as a conference space. The building has an elevator as well.
I booked a Standard room, and I was allocated a twin room. This might have been one of the smaller rooms, but it was more than enough for my travel needs. The bed was comfortable, and the room was air-conditioned.
Tea and coffee making facilities are provided, alongside free drinking water.
The furnishings of the room are simple and uncluttered. The room has a functional work desk and chair, and space to place your bag.
There is free wifi in the hotel, and I had a good reception in my room. I was worried that there was not going to be wifi, because according to Agoda it said there was no free wifi in all rooms. Another section said there was internet access, so I figured there would be. Internet in Vietnamese hotels is so common now that I sometimes forget to check to make sure there is. I would not book a place if it didn’t have wifi.
The bathroom was clean and modern, though a bit small. It could have used some more useful space around the sink.
There is a breakfast service provided, which consists of the standard Vietnamese hotel fare of banh mi op la (bread roll with eggs), and Vietnamese coffee.
The hotel has a reception/conference space, and there is plenty of parking for motorbikes onsite. It seems to be a popular place as there were no rooms available on some dates that I checked.
Overall this was a great choice for staying in Sa Dec. Being in a big building was a nice change from the usual skinny hotels. The location was great as well. I liked that it was within walking distance to the main market and most historical parts of the city.
Sa Dec is on the Mekong River in the Mekong Delta Region of Vietnam, and I think it’s an underrated destination. I had booked this 7 weeks in advance so I had other options to choose from. The last time I visited Sa Dec I didn’t make a booking, and I couldn’t find anywhere to stay by doing same-day bookings.
