Hotel Name: Phan Rang Hotel
Address: 135 Tran Quang Dieu, Phan Rang-Thap Cham, Vietnam.
I stayed at the Phan Rang Hotel in Phan Rang-Thap Cham, Vietnam. I booked it online at the rate of 221,850 VND ($9.65 USD) per night, and I booked it for its price and location in Phan Rang.
This was my first trip to Phan Rang-Thap Cham so I wasn’t familiar with where to stay. There is also a beachfront in the city which I had considered staying at, but I went for the cityside instead. There didn’t appear to be a central point of the city, so I picked a spot near what looked like to be the main park of the city.
Even though the hotel is close to the park and the provincial museum, I was surprised to find that this was a new urban area that was still in development. This is a new area, with lots of empty lots yet to be built on. I figured that with the hotel name being “Phan Rang Hotel” that is must be an old hotel, as “city name” + “hotel” is usually the first name for a hotel.
I was checked in by a friendly receptionist and then shown to my room. I booked a double room with a private bathroom. The room had a big window facing the street, and the bed was firm but comfortable. Power outlets by the bed and the room felt new and spacious.
The room has the option of a fan or A/C, and there was a good wifi signal in my room.
There is a fridge and kettle in the room, and some free bottled water.
The room has a little table which looks most useful for having a cup of tea by, but not good for working.
The bathroom was small but in good condition with a good hot water system.
There is no breakfast service here, but there is a menu for food that you can order. I went to one of the banh mi stands opposite the park. There are also cafes and restaurants around the park area, so it turned out to be a convenient place.
Overall this was a good spot to stay in Phan Rang. I was able to walk around the city from here, and being near the park was a nice bonus. The hotel is good value if you are just looking for a cheap budget hotel.
