Right downtown overlooking the Mekong with good access to, the market and other city attractions.


If you're looking for an international style 4 star hotel in Chau Doc, you on have one option, the Victoria Chau Doc.

The Victoria Chau Doc opened in 1999 just before the opening of the river border crossing to Cambodia. The building was built in the late 90s but draws on the architecture and interior design styles of the French colonial period with distinctive lemon colouring, timber floors and airy common areas.

The hotel makes great use of its riverfront location with a nice pool and a spacious terrace for viewing river life.

There are 92 rooms spread across three room categories. The 4 suites are a spacious 42sqm and have river views. Deluxe rooms are 32sqm and also have river views. Superior rooms are 24sqm and have look back across Chau Doc.

City view superior rooms suffer from street noise and the clatter of old boat engines can also penetrate the river view rooms. Avoiding noise can be quite a task in Vietnam.

Wifi, pool, breakfast, restaurant, spa.
