Khach San Ngoc Phuong was the first of what is going to be many one-nighters on the second stretch of our road trip adventure.
So, why only one night in Bao Loc? We’ll tell you more in our Leg 10 blog. In the meantime, let’s tell you more about our over night stay.
Where to book Khac San Ngoc Phuong
If you haven’t met us before, first off, welcome. Secondly, if you had you would know we rave about the conveniences of using Hotels Combined. Especially when we are out on our road trip.
Khac San Ngoc Phuong was our winner. Not only did it offer the basic conveniences we look for but it had a couple of our ‘luxury items’ too. Bonus!
In addition to the above it came at a great price which was why we booked it on the spot.
(PS: those are affiliate links. You don’t pay extra to use them but we do get a small commission and that helps keep us on the road longer and to tell you about more places like this one!)
Our winner sat slightly past the town center at 184 Lam Sơn, Lộc Sơn, but this was on purpose. We chose this hotel because it sat just off the route we had mapped out for the next morning to Da Lat.
More importantly, it was close to a gas station and walking distance to a brand new Vincom complex. Handy for stocking up on water and Netflix supplies.
We also found a Jolibee inside and decided to have lunch while we were at it.
Khach San Ngoc Phuong had stories and no elevator on site. The staircase was semi enclosed which buffered a bit of the ground level noise.
They offer two simple options in room type, namely twin and double rooms.
For us the bonus was that they had free, secure onsite parking. In fact, it was so secure we couldn’t even get to them the next morning. LOL. It didn’t take much to free them so there was no hassle there.
They also have free WiFi but we didn’t end up using it so can’t tell you if it’s any good or not.
Our Double Room
We stayed in a nice light and spacious double room at the front of the property. Furnished in traditional Vietnamese furniture.
Initially we thought it might be noisy due to the busy road but as soon as we settled in, we realized it wasn’t an issue at all.
We had a large bed with a firm mattress which wasn’t too uncomfortable. The linen was clean and decent and included a light blanket.
The room came with a small fridge, kettle, large flat screen TV and cable channels. Basic but nice.
We had a private bathroom in the familiar all-in-one style we’ve come to know so well. And it came stocked with clean towels and basic toiletries.
Unfortunately, the hot water didn’t last long but the pressure was good. Thankfully the small water heater worked fast and we didn’t have to wait too long to take showers.
The check in process was easy.
I simply showed my passport, he took a photo of it and gave it back to me.
That was a first, as they will usually hold your passport until check out. Not sure why this was different, but if we find out, we’ll let you know.
Apart from the above, our only other interaction with staff was when they asked us to park the bikes in the garage.
They were very friendly and easy to interact with, even with the lack of English. We just used Google translate and that worked a treat.
Our one night cost us VND250,000 (~USD11.00 / ~AUD15.00). Not a bad deal at all.
Khach San Ngoc Phuong lets you book a room without using a credit card and you can pay in cash on check in or check out.
That’s our stay at Khach San Ngoc Phuong
The only thing that marred our stay a bit was the weird artificial bird song coming from the balcony.
The same song played continuous. It didn’t stop until around 11PM and fired up again at 5AM. It just wasn’t happiness.
But as I said it was the only thing that was frustrating and it’s small in the grand scheme of things.
The rest our stay was very enjoyable. We would happily use it again if we need another reason to overnight in Bao Loc. Next time in a back room though, ha-ha!
