“Imperial Hotel, Hue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

Super hotel in a great location.
The checking in was super fast with soft drinks or coffee served whilst it was happening.
Try to get a corner room with Perfume river view, on 10. 11 floor.
The bar on top floor serves great cocktails with a view of river and the city.
Breakfast and dinner of very good standard with super friendly and efficient staff.

We enjoyed drinks at the late afternoon at the rooftop terrace, which has a gret view over the Perfume River and Hue. Our drinks were delicious. We also had fried calamaries, which were a bit greasy.

Perfect spot in Hue.

We did not stay at the hotel.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Imperial for 2 nights in Nov. It wasn't our first choice, we struggled to get somewhere in Hue and in our late twenties definitely felt this hotel is suited to older guests. It is very nice though and was fantastic value.

It has a fantastic location, overlooking the Perfume river (we had a great view as we were pretty high up). It was 5 min walk from the start of the tourist area was great as it was a little crazy down there!

Room was very large as was the bathroom. The breakfast had all the usual Asian/Western buffet breakfast food with lots of choice.

They offer tours and we arranged a car to Hoi An through them as it was the same price as the local tour operators.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were kept spotless and cleaned twice a day.

The spa is on the ground floor (swimming pool on the third), this is not great planning but apart from that it's a great place to stay!

We stayed here for 2 nights. Firstly the plus points. The room was large and comfortable. We were on the 11th floor and had a magnificent view along the perfumed river. It is perfectly located close to the river and several good restaurants and bars.
On the downside; we only had breakfast . the range of food was limited compared to other hotels we stayed in during our holiday and the service was not great. We were provided with coffee and then left the table to go to the self service bar. On our return our coffee had been cleared away and another couple had been shown to our table. Nobody seemed to be in charge of the restaurant staff and as result service was a little chaotic.

When we arrived the foyer had been cordoned off and set out for a function. When we went to the bar the staff were far more intent in servicing the function guests than helping the other hotel guests

Room Tip: Get a high enough room to have a view of the river

We stayed here for just one night doing a quick visit to the Imperial City of Hue, the cultural and historical centre of Vietnam. We found the staff extremely helpful and friendly, and the room very comfortable. We would stay here again if we were to return. When we checked in we were even given a couple of coupons for free draughts at the bar, and ended up staying there with friends for the night after dinner in town. Really an enjoyable stay!

When we first arrived at Imperial Hotel, Hue, I was so excited. Such a beautiful building, such a glorious city. Unfortunately, the only staff members who were nice to us were the housekeeping staff! I do understand that hours worked are long and pay probably isn't great, I just felt disappointed as throughout my time in Vietnam, I've made friends at every hotel.
We went for a drink on the rooftop bar, which had the most stunning view of the Perfume River, but the staff were too busy elsewhere to offer a drink or even clear the table of the previous occupant's glass - we were the solitary customers. We ordered our meal from room service on our first night of occupancy and that was dismal, as was breakfast, especially considering the quality we went on to find in Hue.
Nevertheless, we were very comfortable and LOVED the city. The Imperial could be a great hotel, if only the management would motivate their staff to care.
