Upside: Great location on the end of the UNESCO protected peninsula with stunning views of the Mekong River. The location of the hotel is in a quiet neighborhood and in walking distance to the center of town.

Downside: Since it is located on the edge of the peninsula and the UNESCO zone it cannot offer some extra amenities such as a swimming pool or gym.

Insider Tip: The hotel golf cart will take you anywhere in town and it’s super fun!
