Hotel Review: Phung Hoang Hotel, Vinh Long – Vietnam

Hotel Review: Phung Hoang Hotel, Vinh Long - Vietnam

Hotel Name: Phung Hoang Hotel
Address: 2H Hung Vuong Street, Vinh Long, Vietnam

I stayed at the Phung Hoang Hotel in Vinh Long, Vietnam. The night before I had stayed at the Nam Thanh Homestay across the river from the town of Vinh Long. I checked out but ended up staying in Vinh Long another day, so I just stayed in the town instead.

I found this hotel via an old Lonely Planet guide and just walked in without a reservation. There are a few other guesthouses on this street as well so it is a good place to go if you find yourself having to stay in Vinh Long.

I like staying in provincial Vietnamese hotels as the rooms are almost always decorated in an eclectic way. I got a huge room with three windows! Granted, one of the windows was blacked out, but the illusion of having a three-sided window room was a nice change after having recently stayed in a windowless box. I had to wake up early as so I appreciated the well-lit space. The room looked like something your Vietnamese grandmother would decorate.

Attached bathroom comes with hot water, which is always a bonus when you are paying less than $10 for a room.

My room was 180,000 VND (about $8.40 USD). I saw on the room menu that there were rooms from 120,000 VND ($5.60 USD) but it wasn’t available at the time.
