Hotel Name: Hoang Chau Motel
Address: 45/18B Thuy Van, Vung Tau, Vietnam.
I stayed at the Hoang Chau Motel in Vung Tau, Vietnam. I booked online for $10USD a night and booked it for its location on the backbeach area of Vung Tau. I have stayed at a hotel on the backbeach before and I just wanted something near the beach.
The hotel is down a little alley of the main beach road. There are lots of budget guesthouse-style hotels in this section of the backbeach, so you could just walk around and find a place. I prefer to just book something in advance.
The hotel is your usual skinny Vietnamese building but not too tall for an arduous climb up stairs. As I arrived the landlady of the hotel saw me coming and gave me a warm greeting.
I got a double room with private bathroom. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean and tidy with everything in working order. I must say for such a chaotic country on the streets, Vietnam does he clean and simple guesthouses very well. This was one of those.
The bathroom was also a clean and basic room. The shower had a place on a wall so it wasn’t just a handheld operation, and there was hot water.
The room was air conditioned but no fan, which would have been a good addition as I prefer sleeping with a fan. The internet was solid in my room. There was no breakfast service here.
Overall this was a great budget room. Clean and tidy and friendly owners made it a good stay.
