Rating 9.0, $15 for a double, breakfast not included

We stayed here and loved it. I loved the Sunny B Hotel so much I stayed here twice. The rooms are big and include a balcony and excellent, professional plumbing in the bathroom. If you’ve travelled in Asia for a while you’ll know just how rare good plumbing is. The location is also good, if a little outside of the action, with the highly-rated Family Home Restaurant just across the street.

Note that the map location on for Sunny B Hotel is incorrect (as of Jan 2017). Google Maps has the correct location, though it says Original Binh Duong 3 (Sunny B Hotel) for the name.

If you’re hankering after a little bit of inexpensive luxury, this place looks outstanding. It kind of makes me want to cry to think about the horrible room we got in India for the same price.
