Accommodation: Chau Doc

Khach San Han Phat Hotel

This hotel is located in the center of Chau Doc, on Bach Dang, overlooking the park and the temple.

It looks much better from the outside as most of the smaller hotels in the area. The reception is rather big and looks welcoming, and the staff is very helpful here. The standard room cost 650.000 per night, including breakfast.

The room itself was nice, with a double bed, a desk, fridge, A/C and a bathroom with a nice large shower. This is certainly a step up from the standard hotels. The bed is actually very comfortable. And for me the room as something else very important – a window overlooking the alley next to the hotel.

They have a rooftop bar where you can enjoy a coffee during the day or a cocktail in the evening. The view is very nice, and as there are no other tall building you get a ice breeze there. The cocktails were not bad, but quite strong. Unfortunately the bar closes at 10pm. But it is a good place to finish the day.

Breakfast is served on the first floor. It is a buffet that contains typical Asian food, like pho, dim sum, banh cuon etc. They also serve bread and croissants with jam. I found the breakfast good enough.

The location of the hotel is actually very good, as it is in the center of Chau Doc. It is easy enough to explore the park area or walk to the river front. On the right hand side of the hotel is a square where at night you can find food stalls selling soup or rice dishes. At night you can also find smoothies or coffee stalls around the park.

Overall I think this is a good choice. It might be a bit more expensive when you are on a budget, but they offer a clean, spacious room, decent breakfast, good location and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I would probably stay there again
