“Just Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We booked the hotel for one night but ended up staying three nights and to be honest, we did not want to leave at all! The staff is really nice and helpful and the rooms are clean, spaceous and the beds are heavenly. There is nothing to complain about. I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody.

Room Tip: there are rooms without window, so if it is important to you make sure you book one with window .

Good location (less then 10 min walk from the Sinh Tourist Office). The room was clean and worth the money. They served good breakfast with good variety.

Very friendly and helpful staff. They suggested us a very good Vietnamese Restaurant in Hue and we enjoyed excellent food there. Moreover, due to insufficient time, the staff has arranged private car service for us to visit the Citadel, palaces and magnificent tombs.

Highly recommend this hotel to all.

Brief Review
- Very clean hotel, linen, rooms etc. Spotless!
- Lift (unlike most hotels for the price), decent WiFi in rooms and a computer to use downstairs
- Buffet breakfast included, lots of choice (over a dozen) with exemplary service
- Good size rooms, flatscreen TV, fridge, toiletries, towels etc
- Owner runs a 'Tea & Talk' not-for-profit program to help students learn english - Sign up!!
- Hilton standard everything! But for a lot less money
- Super friendly receptionist, helpful one first arrival. Map given plus directions.

Detailed Review
My g/f and I stayed here for 2 nights initially at the end of September, and extended for a further night after we saw the hotel. We were given a free pick up from the bus stop by the owner, who's very nice. Upon arrival at the hotel we're greeted by the receptionist, who is amaingly friendly, always talkative and helpful!

The hotel also owner runs a 'tea and talk' not for profit program, where guests can volunteer 60-90 mins of their time to talk to a small group of students who want to improve their English. We would stringly recommend you do this, as its a nice way to get to talk to some locals while also helping them! We chatted for over the 90 mins :-D

Our room was spotless, full of everything you'd expect from a top notch room. We got a deal on booking.com and only paid $12 per night for the room!!

Buffet breakfast is the best we'd come aross after 3 weeks of being in Vietnam...in fact....the hotel is the best, and most genuine we'd also come across as they weren't trying to sell sell sell everything to you.

Defintely recommend a stay. Its also well located, 2 streets (3 min walk) to the main tourist street.

Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: They are all good

Loved the staff here, just what we needed after getting off the night bus from Hanoi. Offered us rooms for 22 or 15 dollars but we ended up being upgraded to the better room for 15 usd when they heard we were on honeymoon. Good breakfast included and exceptionally helpful staff. Room was lovely and great location. Shame about the weather but can't fault the hotel, s great budget hotel

We have 2 main kinds of rooms Superior and Deluxe. Some times if Deluxe rooms are available you will be upgraded, why not? Because you are our King. We have advantage with our hotel buffet, which has more than 20 dishes with bacon, sandwich, jam, eggs, noodle, cook rice, dumbling, banana pan cake, rolling cake, pineapple, water melon, passion fruit, banana, coffee, tea, milk... I got knowledge from Business Management Course in Coventry, UK so our breakfast like English breakfast.

I love this hotel the moment I arrived in Hue city, the staff welcome us warmly and give us really good rooms. They speak reasonable good english compare to another hotel I stayed in Danang.

When we arrived, the staff of the hotel was very friendly (like the name of the hotel). The rooms are big and the airco works very good! In the morning, there is a breakfast-buffet so you have a lot of choice. When you visit Hue, you must stay at this hotel!

Room Tip: Take a room whit a balcony because that way you can enjoy the city, also by night
