“Not THE ideal hotel but good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Ideal hotel Hue
Its strategic location is very much appreciated throughout our group’s 3days 2nights stop at Hue. Restaurants, bars, café’s and individual shops are all within walking distances (e.g. DMZ Bar, La Carambole, Why Not Bar & Café, Ushi are just one street away).
The staff is friendly and eager to help. There’s no electric kettle in the room though, you’d have to get it from the lobby or make a call to the reception desk. Air conditioning works well (especially important during summer in Vietnam) but there was a slight hitch in the 3rd morning of our stay - the water supply in the bathroom was cut off all of a sudden – my friend was bathing half way and had to get to the ground floor’s lobby’s public toilet to finish up. The plumber was sent to our rooms in the next 30-45minutes to set things straight.
We feel that the breakfast was quite terrible as compared to all of our hotel stays in Viet (even the smaller hotels provide much better and fresher breakfasts) - other than the fruits, omelets and noodles that are prepared on the spot – the sponge cakes, bread and pastries tasted stale, fried foods were very hard.
Swimming pool:
We were delighted during the 1st day of checking in when the receptionist told us that a swimming pool’s available on the top floor. A dip was perfect in the hot summer, so you could imagine how disappointed we were when we reached the pool. It was dirty; the bottom of the pool had debris and dirt. It looked like a pool which hasn’t been cleaned for months.
In short, the location is really good, the rooms are clean. Perhaps you’d find the breakfast edible if you stick to omelets and tea.

We just lived for 1 night, but we enjoy the stay very much. The reception waiter and waitress helped us to book the ticket for the Hue touri and the bus to Danoung, and we also had a nice breakfast and very good time at 8th floor's swimming pool. 3Q 4 your reception sincerely.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side have better senery.

Staff very friendly, located near the river - which is beautiful at night. Rooms clean, air-conditioning worked, city views, breakfast good with freshly cooked omelettes available. An easy walk over the bridge to market area and some interesting shops nearby. Overall, very good value and comfortable vibe.

Good Afternoon Tripadvior Team.
We are writing to this mail send to you with the following contents.
- We were of good Review you to down a lot, but we do not understand why this is so. Us to track our customers review writing for us, at first you also down of good the ones we do not review send an email saying that it is technical errors. But now that of you lower a lot of good review down make us very frustrating. Specifically, the 101 review a few days ago, now the rest is 89. As you know, every time a good customer care, our new customers paid off a compliment to the hotel. But the rewards of our customers come to us have been down that you removed for no reason. Therefore we urge you to consider and finalize a good review but we have to actually be a website tripadvior justice for all. We are pressing this issue, so we urge you to resolve satisfactorily. Otherwise we do not want to work with a partner like this is unfair.
Looking forward to replies.
Thank you very much
Best Regards

Ideal Hotel Hue Team

We stayed at the Ideal Hotel for 2 nights. We had a room at the sixth floor and everything was really clean and tidy. Breakfast was included and the staff was helpful. We booked a nighttrain to Ninh Binh, but we could leave the bags in the lobby and still use the shower after check out (without an extra fee).

Room Tip: Choose one of the bigger rooms (with balcony) it's worth the couple of extra dollars.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nts during an Intrepid Tour through Vietnam. The Ideal Hotel was well located among many restaurants and shopping in the area. It was close to the river and touring the city. The room was a bit old & dated. It had a safe in the room. The air conditioning worked well. I thought the vacuuming in the room could be improved as this leads to overall cleanliness. The WiFi worked well. Our room had a nice balcony. The breakfast was average. There were computer terminals available in the reception area. But the staff were very friendly and did their very best at providing a good service for hotel patrons which was appreciated! Overall, the hotel was satisfactory but not ideal!

Mr Hoa manager and his staff welcome you to their hotel which is situated in the centre of town close to all the main sights, restaurants and various markets. The hotel has comfortable rooms and good working amenities with a buffett style breakfast.

Room Tip: Good size balcony to view local area and to have a quiet drink with friends,
