Thuan Loi Hotel is the only budget accommodation in Chau Doc with a river view, so it was an obvious choice. After crossing the Cambodian border by boat, at Kaam Samnor, we arrived at Chau Doc’s small harbour. From there, we walked to Thuan Loi Hotel through a lively (and partially live) food market, which gave us a fantastic first taste of Vietnam. The hotel’s rooms were clean and comfortable and we enjoyed the river views from their restaurant. It was only the staff’s rather surly and unhelpful manner that was unappealing.
Cost: Ten US dollars for a double room with air-con, en suite bathroom, cable TV and wifi. Two or three dollars less for a fan instead of air-con.
Finding it: 18 Tran Hung Dao Street, about fifteen minutes walk from the dock. (See map below.)
