“nice boutique hotel in a quiet area”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

We stayed 3 nights at Hotel Hoa Bien, a charming boutique hotel in a quiet upscale residential area, a few blocks from the restaurant Hoa Bien . We have room 204, with a balcony overlooking a small park . The room is cozy, very clean, with large windows, a bathtube, AC, and wi-fi. It take about 15 minutes to reach the central area. The manager, Mr. Chau, used to live in the USA, and is a good source of information, always eager to help and directs us to the safe places to eat

We stayed here for two nights before our flight to Phu Quoc. The hotel is in a quiet part of the city with residential housing and only a short walk to the ferries and shops. The staff is kind but speaks no English. The owner who speaks English was away at the time but they phoned him to translate if there was a problem. The rooms are a good size and clean - and serviced daily. Breakfast is not included but can be arranged for 2.5 $ per person.

My boyfriend and I flew into Rach Gia from HCMC to begin our land journey to Cambodia (Rach Gia - Ha Tien - Kep). We arrived in Rach Gia at 7:00 AM, grabbed motos in the rain (quintessential Vietnam!), and headed to Hotel Hoa Bien. Even though we didn't have reservations, the owner, who speaks English (he previously lived in Texas), came to meet us out front and helped settle up our moto tabs. He gave us a clean, spotless room even though it was hours before check in, which was a blessing, since we had been traveling on international over night flights non-stop for 4 days at that point. We grabbed some pho in Rach Gia town center, then crashed for a few hours in our spotless quiet A/C room. We spent a day and 1/2 exploring Rach Gia, which was a great chance to explore a non-touristy slice of Vietnam. I highly recommend leaving the waterfront area and heading into town from some food and coffee. The language barrier can be a challenge, but with a little patience and gesturing, you'll quickly get to see the hospitality and warmth of the town. Finally, when it was time for us to leave, the owner helped coordinate our bus tickets to Ha Tien, and made us a delicious breakfast (including lovely Vietnamese iced coffee - "cafe sua da"!) I can't recommend Hotel Hoa Bien and the town of Rach Gia enough for those who are interested in getting off the beaten (touristy) path in Vietnam!

Clean, comfortable, cheap etc etc. Exceptional service and very friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. Easy walk to the ferry for Phu Quoc Island. Great place.

We spent one night at Hoa Bien Hotel on our way to Phu Quoc (the hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of the docks from which the ferry to Phu Quoc leaves). All the great reviews we had read about it on TA were soon confirmed: beautiful, modern interiors, large, well-furnished rooms, spotlessly clean, with all the comforts you would expect in a four-star European hotel. The location of Hoan Bien is of equally high standards: a quiet, elegant neighborhood with pretty houses, clean streets and a well-kept small park where kids play. We slept like kings. The owner is extremely nice and helpful (he can provide ferry tickets to Phu Quoc, for example), speaks excellent English and prepares a very good breakfast, Vietnamese or international according to your preferences. The quality/price ratio of the hotel is immense.
