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.
