“Booked through a tour from HCMC”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We were really short of time when we were in HCMC so had no real choice but to book a group tour through the Mekong Delta through to Cambodia as we couldn't risk getting stuck somewhere waiting for a boat or transport on. We were booked into this hotel as part of the tour and it was pretty average. The whole place looked very run down and empty, blank walls, very sparse. We had little to no contact with the staff who spoke little to no english. The room was similar, not particularly clean, definitely saw a bug or two. I mean it wasn't that bad, and there was a tv with cable, but we slept reasonably well and it wasn't the worst night we had!

We were staying at the Xuan Mai 1 (50 meters from the Xuan Mai 2 but not available on Trip Advisor). The room was good (big, with air co, sunny) but the global service of the hotel was so - so:

- No breakfast served in the hotel
- The person taking care of the "travel agency" misled us: We paid the boat trip to the floating market way too high and he sold us bus tickets to Ha Tien 5 times the price telling us that it will be a big bus with air co to finish in a minibus without enough seats for everybody and no air co. On top of that, after half of the trip the driver ask us to pay (again) which we didn't do but we had to argue.

Unfortunately, we had terrible experience while staying one night at this hotel. Not only it wasn't good value for money (we stayed in beautiful hotels for $20 with amazing service and breakfast but you don't get any of that here), the room was basic and no one with English to ask any question, no one even at the reception, it didn't feel comfortable and welcoming... also we had this incident with the man from the hotel that you rent the motorbikes from. At the end of the day we had an argument over the payment of the motorbike and this man lost it and tried to attack me ( a girl) on the street in front of everyone!!! Not joking. He seemed very violent and my friends stopped him with other people on the street. This incident ruined our stay at Can Tho. Save yourself a trouble and pick different hotel, there are many better once! I am still very upset about the incident as it was serious! Be aware!

We stayed in Xuan Mai I hotel for one night.

The hotel itself was ok, kind of what is expected for a budget hotel in Vietnam. Cleanish, had AC but we got stuck next to a guy with his tv blaring all night so didn't get much sleep.

We got talked into buying trips from the hotel, and please don't do it. You can get them much cheaper elsewhere.

We took a 4 hour sunset boat trip along the river, this was pleasant. We also did a 4 hour trip the following morning to see the floating markets. Apart from the markets being a bit rubbish the boat driver kept getting lost, farting and crashed into a tree! We were told we would have an English guide to explain things but this did not happen.

We also took the homestay trip. This cost us a whopping $70 each. We were told we would get a private car with a tour guide. We would go to villages to see incence getting made and also tofu. We would get a ferry over to the homestay, then we could hire bikes, we would get a cooking lesson, have dinner, accomodation and breakfast.

The trip to the ferry, had the car not stopped would probably have taken about 45 mins top - they tell you it is 2.5-3 hours. The tour guide was a hyperactive 21 year old girl who kept taking our photos to put on facebook. Her English was very good, it was just unfortunate we couldn't really understand what she was saying.

The incence factory was not working that day as it was raining so we got to stand in their garden and watch them playing cards, getting eaten by mozzies and trying to interpret what the guide was saying.

The tofu factory was better, at least we actually saw something for 10 mins!

We arrived at the ferry, saw $10 each getting passed to the homestay guy then getting abandonned and not being sure what was going on.

The homestay was great, good value for money(if you had actually paid $10). The beds and bathroom facilities were good and clean. The accomodation is basic, kind of dormatories seperated by bamboo walls and curtains. Each bed has its own mozzie net and there are fans, it was quite warm through the night. The dinner they provided was lovely - a real feast, and breakfast was also good. The cooking lesson did not materialise. They have loads of bikes to use and could not do more to help you to pump up the tyres, etc.
There was also a guide at the homestay who was lovely, very helpful.

In summary, I would reccomend a homestay as part of your travels but organise it yourself - don't get suckered in by the sales people at the hotel! I still cannot believe we paid that much - Never again!

We stayed there one night with the Mekong tour. The room was all right (on the 5th floor), but extremely hot, so we had to pay extra for A/C for a small part of the night to cool the room down. At around 4am, the rooster started to sing and never stopped until we had to get up at 6. Short night. Staff was nice.

This is a budget hotel and you get what you pay for. The rooms are past there prime but clean and the staff are some what disinterested. I think you can do much better in Can Tho however the location is great.

Stayed there for a night, it was part of an organized package tour down the Mekong. The accommodation was fine. Good spacious room, good wifi and air conditioning, clean and the staff were helpful. Has an elevator. Cold beer is in the back fridge behind reception, the beer in the main fridge is normally not cold. Interesting part of town, plenty of hardware and bike repair shops around. Well worth a visit.
