Good little rooms with balconies in an alleyway just near the River and main backpackers area with bars and restaurants. Great value for $. It felt very homely. Run by a lovely family always willing to help. They even took our bags to the car in the pouring rain and made sure we had umbrellas. They can organise tours/scooter hire/airport... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was excellent. The family who run this guesthouse are amazing and will go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. They made sure we had everything we needed, provided excellent maps of the area, and were able to book a tour to the DMZ. On the... More

We stayed at Phong Lan guesthouse for three nights in a double room with balcony. The room was big enough and clean, and so was the bathroom. The staff was very friendly and spoke good english. The location is perfect, in a small quiet "hem" just off the main road. Not our best stay in Vietnam, but highly recommended if... More

Good situated - close to train station ( by taxi 20.000 VND) and Imperial city. Really clean and big room, nice dining area. But the best were the hosts! They were really friendly and helpful. Moreover, they spoke english pretty well. Sometimes it had even homestay character. But you never felt pushed to attend something.

I struggle to see what people write such gleaming reviews about. Yes it was clean and comfortable, which is to be expected I suppose. The food was not great but not bad either. I would happily stay here again but also nothing to write home about. The view from our room was nice. But that's it really.

Definitely the best place we stayed in Vietnam. The family that run the hotel are so sweet, and really looked after us during our 3 nights with them. Tree helped us book a river boat tour and also a day trip to some hot springs. Breakfast was delicious each morning with Omelettes, fresh (still warm) baguettes, 6(!) home made jams,... More

I really enjoyed my 2 nights at phong lan hostel. My room was clean, staff is very friendly and charming and breakfast ... yummy! The only reason for which I only put 4 stars is that my room was really noisy ( bar and music the evening and work the morning ) ... but really I don't regret to stay... More

Phong Lan is owned by one of the sweetest families in Hue. Their service is impeccable. Whether you need a tour, motorbike, or private car, Phong Lan goes above and beyond. Our daily breakfast was delicious! We had omelets that came with bread and an assortment of homemade jams. On Christmas Eve, they were kind enough to bring homemade egg... More

Cannot be better. Clean, friendly, good advices, interesting area. No international boring place. But genuine vietnamese hospitality. I recommend to those who appreciate the real life instead of boring international hotel life. Postoffice nearby for postcards and stamps. I wish Phong Lan good luck and prosperity!

As is mentioned in many reviews here, it is the staff that make this place a bit special. Exceptionally friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. We here having problems with the internet compnection speeds ( par for the course in Vietnam) and they called the provider to try and sort it out. Breakfast is simple but good and... More
