Hotel Name: Ha Tien Happy Hotel
Address: 13-14 Hoang Van Thu, Ha Tien, Kien Giang, Vietnam.
I stayed at Ha Tien Happy Hotel in Ha Tien, Vietnam. I booked it online at the rate of 281,879 VND ($12.17 USD) and I picked this hotel for its price and location in Ha Tien. This price includes 10 % VAT and 5 % Service charge, so it was a great deal even by Vietnam standards.
Ha Tien is more of a transit hub, with most people passing through for the ferry to Phu Quoc or a bus to the nearby Cambodian border. If you have the time then it’s worth stopping in Ha Tien to see life in this provincial city. This was my first time Ha Tien as a visitor (passing through on a bus doesn’t count), so I didn’t know what would be the best area to stay. I figured that somewhere near the riverfront would be the best option. The Ha Tien Happy Hotel is near the riverfront and around the corner from the central market area.
The hotel is also branded as Ha Tien Hanh Phuc, though Happy Hotel is also written on the building and my motorbike taxi from the bus station knew the hotel I was talking about.
The reception area is spacious, and after a warm greeting, I was shown to my room. There is a lift here as well.
I got a Standard Double Room, which includes a private bathroom. It’s always worth checking your booking details with cheap hotels in Vietnam and Southeast Asia, as sometimes it is a shared bathroom. My room was bright and spacious, and it felt new (or it’s just been kept in good condition).
The bed was comfortable, and it had a bedside table and a fridge acting as another bedside table.
There is a table and chair set, but not useful for sitting down to work. There is free wifi in the hotel and I got a good connection in my room. I just did my work at leisure from the bed.
The bathroom was also clean and spacious. The hot water system took a while to get started.
At the time of booking online, a breakfast service was offered for an additional 50,000 VND. I opted out because I wanted to try the local street food. There are plenty of places to eat nearby as well. There isn’t a lot of options for international food in Ha Tien, so make the most of your time eating Vietnamese food until you get to Phu Quoc.
Overall this was a great place to stay in Ha Tien if you are looking for a cheap hotel. The location was ideal for exploring Ha Tien, and the room was of an excellent standard for a budget hotel considering the price.
