Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 30, 2013

When you arrive at the victoria the open passage just haunts you in!
The spacious entrance is very inviting, so is the pool, that lines up with the Mekong river a small distance onwards.
Rooms were good, food was excellent, the hotel very well taken care of by amiable people.
A special experience, really. Surely in comparison with life outside...

Room Tip: Room with view to the pool

I've stayed in the Mekong before and this place really exceeded my expectations. I did not have high expectations despite the 5* rating but it was great! Beautiful building and fantastic rooms.

It's very clean and the rooms are a nice style. Quite a clean style but very comfy.

The hotel is right on the Mekong and I was concerned about the location away from Can Tho. The shuttle boat is fantastic! The staff arrange for it to collect you and it zips back and forth to the town. The journey is 5-10 minutes so it's really no inconvenience. In fact it became a real bonus as the boat trip is great!

Spa is nice and good value. It's quiet and under used - I'd recommend it as it has lovely little huts where they do the treatments.

Really good place - our private tour boat picked us up at the hotels own jetty. We only stayed one night but I can see why people stay longer.

The hotel is located just outside the center of town, but provides free boat transfer morning and evening to the city. The rooms are very nice, spacy and clean. The building is Victorian and gives you a feeling of staying at a resort from the old days. From the garden you can see the Mekong River. A large pool with good sunbeds. Breakfast is very good with a large selection of hot and cold items. We had a very nice stay and will stay there again. The service is excellent.

We wished we'd booked a few more days in this hotel as it was fantastic and the Mekong Delta one of my favourite places in Vietnam. The hotel isn't in the centre of Can Tho however is situated on the river and the hotel runs a free shuttle bus in every 15 minutes which worked well. The hotel is colonial in style and the public areas are largely open air. The pool is beautiful and the spa treatments, although not cheap, are very relaxing using beautiful products and with attention to detail such as free drinks on arrival.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Through them we booked a private trip on the Mekong Delta which was one of the highlights of our trip. We had a very nice and knowledgeable guide who spoke excellent english and a boat to ourselves. After a sunrise trip down the river we returned by bike cycling along some smaller parts of the river and seeing how people live by the river and use it for their washing, transport, everything. Children would run out and say hello to us on our bikes, it was truly memorable!

Our room was lovely with a balcony overlooking the pool however still very quiet. There were nice little touches in the rooms such as exotic fruits, a pot of homemade jam and chocolates. The food in the hotel, while not cheap, was tasty with a good selection of Vietnamese and western dishes. Breakfasts were excellent with a choice of fresh foods. In the evenings we enjoyed sitting out by the pool with a drink from the bar playing backgammon. Oh to be back there!

Most magnificent setting on the river bank, regular shuttle to the city centre is a great help. Friendly and efficient check in staff. The room is world class, genuine wooden floors ceiling fans and airconditioning. Comfortable beds with beautiful white linen. Massive swiming pool and a "taster" massage advertising the full facilities available. Definitely a recommendation in the area

Room Tip: The rooms above reception face on to the river, in the wings you face inwards to the pool

We passed a night here on our way from Ho Chi Minh City to Siem Reap in Cambodia. Strangely, the professional photo displayed here doesn't look like the hotel we stayed at. Be that as it may, the hotel is charming, very old school colonial. Our rooms had a panoramic view over the Mekong Delta. The beds were comfortable and the rooms clean and bright. I had a massage in the spa, and I'm afraid it wasn't that great compared to others I had in South East Asia. Apart from that, the hotel was totally acceptable.
The town of Can Tho is not that interesting.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Mekong Delta.
