“First Class location but Third Class Rooms”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2009

I stayed here for 5 nights because I was able to get one of the front rooms with a view of the river from the shared balcony. This may be the best location in Can Tho because it also looks over the park with the statue of Ho Chi Minh where the good folk of the city gather each night to relax - they also go there at sunrise to exercise. Being able to observe all this from the balcony is the major draw of the Tay Ho.

Unfortuanately that is where the good points end. I must agree with the previous reviewer about the cleanliness of the rooms. Cleaners do not look up or under anything. There are cobwebs throughout the room and bathroom, dust on chairs and tops and if you move something you will likely see 2 years of accumulated dirt.

Apparently this hotel was renovated in 2005 but the bed and furniture appear to be much older than this. The hotel is owned by the Can Tho Tourist company who should take more care in ensuring that standards are maintained.

The reception staff are friendly enough and I was even offered a discount when I went to enquire about a room, without having to ask for one.

The location is noisy being on a busy road close to the river but I was aware of this and so do not mark down the hotel because of this. Although the room was poor I would consider staying here again just because it is so nice to be able to sit outside and take in the view. This is the only budget option hotel in Can Tho where this is possible.

This hotel has a great location right by the river, with a nice shared balcony overlooking the water, but that's all that's going for it. Our room was large but looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. The bathroom had mold and spiders in the corners. The whole room was crawling with ants!
Our first night there was disasterous and I didn't sleep at all. The window in our room looked out into the hallway and the light was left on so light streamed into our room all night. The rooms aren't very sound proof and there were very loud guests downstairs yelling and banging doors through all hours of the night. The hotel staff didn't do anything about it and we were too scared to try to do anything about it.
The staff were pleasant but not friendly. A woman associated with the hotel wanted to take us on a boat trip but she asked for more than double the going rate if you arrange your own boat trip by the river, which is easy enough to do.
There don't seem to be many good budget options in Can Tho, but I'd definitely try someplace else.
