Palace Hotel
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Rach Gia
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We stayed here for one night in transit from Phu Quoc to Can Tho to look at the city. The walk-in price was very good (550.000VND/night) and the room was very large, nicely decorated and clean. There was no breakfast included but directly next to the hotel you can find a cheap "restaurant" to eat and drink. They also book you the transfer to can tho by bus (Phuang Trang Company) with free pick-up-service! The location is very close to the pier (10min to walk) and perfect to have a sightseeing trip in the city. Recommendation!

Visited this hotel for couple of days as stop over on way back Island trip. Basic but clean. Close to ferry and down town. Never ate there but restaurant appeared very simple. Cheap & Cheerful.

Restaurants nearby also shops to buy basics. Not a lot in Rach Gia itself. Hotel located 20 mins from airport as its morning flight from there only and no traffic at that time.

Current November 2012 rates are VND 650,000 but a 10% discount is available if you are a large group and can negotiate in Vietnamese. Rooms are tiled and clean with daily laundry service. Drinking water is chargeable. The first floor restaurant is now a conference room but snacks and coffee can be had at the ground floor cafe and outside on the pavement. The menu is mostly Vietnamese but "eggs and sausage" with a baguette are available. Ask for the English menu. For other nearby eating there is the large Hoa Bien restaurant down the road jutting over the sea: and 999 on a nearby corner with beef, noodles and speciality duck eggs.

A bridge across the river to the southern town extension will be finished by end 2013 and the Hotel will then have an even more strategic location. In the meantime try climbing the nearby lighthouse or talking yourself onto the fishing boats moored on the river. Sunsets from here can be spectacular.

Room Tip: Corner rooms *06 and *07 are large with sea/river views and small balconies

We stayed at the Palace Hotel the night before we took the boat to Phu Quoc. It is close to the water and only about 5 minutes by taxi to the boat dock. Although it is on a quiet street in a newly developed area, it is only a block away from a busy thoroughfare with lots of stores. The hotel is new and fresh. Our room was clean and well equipped. We ate dinner in their outdoor restaurant. It was popular with the locals both for dinner in the evening and breakfast in the morning - and for good reason. The food and service were excellent. It was a delight to be able to walk along the waterfront in the evening without dodging the usual crazy vietnamese traffic. This hotel is great value for the money.

We stayed here for 2 nights before catching the ferry to Phu Quoc and had a lovely surprise. This is a gem of a hotel- one of the best we have stayed at in Vietnam. It's brand new, very clean, with beautiful fittings. The reception staff were very helpful and could speak good English. Location is great too - quiet area but only 5 mins walk to town & ferry. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.
