“Pleasantly Surprised”
Reviewed May 12, 2011

Hard to beat this hotel as a place to stay in Vung Tau. Was pleasantly surprised. Didn't use any of the facilities, or restaurants as we ate out both nights we where in Vung Tau, but the rooms where very good, and the staff excellent. Would definitely stay here again if I was traveling to Vung Tau. The hotel is well located with a good spread of bars and restaurants within easy reach. Taxis are generally lined up outside, so issues there - just make sure you pick one from the line, and not one trying to jump the queue, which did in our case - always good to watch people argue in a language u don'r understand

I have now stayed twice at Petro Hotel. Location is decent and pricing is very competitive for a hotel of this category. Only the Imperial hotel is better than this one, but the price is almost double. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable, spa service is professional and clean, and restaurant is decent. Buffet breakfast is not up to Western standards but still does the job pretty well. For business travelers who are looking for a centrally located hotel with good quality/price ratio, this is it. Compared to the Rex Hotel and the Palace Hotel, this one is way above in terms of standards of quality and cleanliness, I recommend for anyone going to Vung Tau.

We had fairly low expectations of Vung Tau but were pleasantly surprised by both the town and this hotel. Definitely good value for the price - a seaview room is a little more expensive but does have a great view! Rooms are very large, clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast is good quality and the spa is good too. A lovely pool overlooks a green hill and the dog racing track next door. Only a short taxi ride from the hydrofoil stop approx. 30,000 dong for metered taxi (don't believe the other taxi's when they ask for $10 to the Petro!).
