Victoria Can Tho Hotel****

Our brief comments:The imposing facade of, and entrance to, the Victoria Can Tho
The elegant French-Colonial style Victoria Can Tho is arguably the most attractive of the five Victoria hotels currently operating in Vietnam. A classic avenue symmetrically fringed with tall palms frames the hotel entrance. Add the graceful facade, polished wood floors, wooden glazed-panel French windows, period overhead fans and a host of other details, and the effect is that of a large plantation house.

Apart from the impression of stepping back to the days of opulent colonialism, the rooms areThe well-appointed rooms combine comfort and elegance successfully comfortable with all the facilities of a modern hotel.

Each room has a balcony - 36 of Deluxe rooms and the all the Suites have direct views of the Hau River. The remaining Deluxe rooms and the Superior rooms have partial river views, or overlook the lush tropical gardens in front of the hotel.

The open-air Cuu Long Bar provides cocktails and other drinks, light snacks and a variety of board games and similar pastimes. Unusually, the poolside bar bar offers fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

The hotel also operates a sunset cruise on the Hau River through the countryside around Can Tho.

There's also a selection of recreational activities from which to choose. Although there's no fitness centre, a sauna and massage facilities are available.

Apart from a 4hr road journey, a hydrofoil link carries travellers from Saigon to Can Tho city's jetty taking about the same time. For those who want the most convenient means of travel, the Victoria's private 11-seat speedboat and jetty are available.
