We had received confirmation of our booking for two doubles rooms. When we arrived at the Golden River Palace Guesthouse in 35 degree heat after a full days travel from Chau Doc in Vietnam we were told the rooms were not available and they could send us to their "partner" hotel just around the corner for the same price.
Even though we had read about this method of sending travellers to substandard accommodation we forgot as we were hot and tired and just accepted it on face value.
The Modern City Hotel on the surface was ok, but was not up to standard, aircon didn't work in one room and was poor in the other, windows didn't shut, toilet door didn't shut etc etc.
Also, breakfast was meant to be included but was not available at the second hotel.
Please note: We did not see the rooms at the Golden River Palace Guesthouse so can not comment on the standard of those.
