This low-slung French colonial–style property may be compact, but it packs a punch, from the pillared, open-air lobby to the lushly landscaped outdoor pool, a refreshing place to end a long day of exploring the labyrinthine canals of the Mekong Delta. The riverside location gives guests front row seats to the wonders of the Mekong, from floating fishing villages to waterborne markets.
Bed and Bath
Each of the 92 rooms has gleaming hardwood floors, handsome colonial furniture and a muted palette of cream and gold. Upgrade to a Deluxe Room or Suite for views of the bustling Bassac River, or gaze upon the riot of activity in Chau Doc from the Superior and Standard Rooms.
The hotel arranges excellent excursions, including cooking lessons in a small Cham village, water safaris in the Tra Su Nature Reserve, river journeys in traditional sampans and hikes among the cave pagodas of Sam Mountain. Afternoons and evenings are spent on more leisurely pursuits, including herbal massages on the rooftop spa or games of billiards, backgammon or bridge. But the best seats in town are at the hotel’s riverfront café tables, the perfect place to sip beer as the sun sets over Chau Doc’s busy watery highway.
How to Get There
This is a classic hotel, with a classic cuisine and a great terrace, Rooms are clean, easy to access. THe F&B are great. Doing both Vietnamese and International cuisine. Reception is friendly and efficient, and so is room service.
Comfortable hotel with good sized room which included fridge, coffee, free wifi and easy to use safe.
Shower was too low on the wall, though could be hand held. Adequate, but not very powerful. Unlike most hotels on my trip there was no bath. Bathrobe too small.
Duvet on bed too thick / warm.
We stayed here two nights and found the staff excellent the room was very nice with a view over the river, the only issue was the mosquitoes we were told to keep the windows closed which we did but there was still quite a few in the room. On the second day we found there was electric mosquito device in the draw, would have been better if they had let us know. The elevators were a huge problem whenever we went to use them particularly in the mornings when the were full of them and if the staff sprayed the lifts a couple of times a day it would be a lot better.
Did a boat tour of the floating market, local fish farms and to an island where we purchased scarves and rugs fantastic quality and value.
Used the hotels boat service to Phnom Penh and it was excellent no issues whatsoever.
From the moment you step into this quant hotel there are smiles welcoming you everywhere. Whilst our stay was all to short the hotel service, quality of the rooms and the food and beverage area all did the very best to make you feel special and at home. Positioned on the river there is no end of things to look at. Victoria Hotels seem to be good quality without all the fuss of the big star hotels. We loved this hotel💕
This is a nice hotel right next to the river. The staff are helpful and friendly and the room was nice and clean. The manager, a Frenchman who spoke excellent English would not give us any advice on local restaurants so we had to eat at the hotel. The food was good, the portions a little small and quite expensive. Although there are millions of mozzies on the terrace this was a good part of our disappointing TUI Mekong Delta tour.
