Hue Hotel

OK folks looking for some guidance here only spending a couple of days in Hue and would like some feedback on hotels. I know the Orchid is good but have read some TA's about rooms being double booked. Any suggestions I have been told that there is a new little hotel Thang Long 3 does anyone know anything about it

Thanks

Rasand

Hue Queen is where we have booked. (Allegedly)the Orchid booked out.

HQ looks to be a better hotel at almost similar rates.

I will do a report from there hopefully ehen there July 18-20.

Hi Rasand,

Enter "www.hotels-in-vietnam.com"----this is a booking agent I never use----However,it provides a list that gives the full range of hotels---it is out of date ---new hotels are being built by the dozens in Hue at this point in time!------The Orchid has been jumped upon by booking agents( a great little hotel).

Once you have a list of names of hotels---hunt their email addresses down on the web and approach direct----Hue is one of the easy places in VN to get good quality accommadation.

I have just spent 20 days there in 2 trips at the " Huong Giang"---a 4* hotel----more upmarket than I would normally travel in VN----first class hotel---I have stayed at the Dong Da many times---the Heritage also!-----I will not qoute rates as a lot of my accommadation in VN is booked by VN friends I have known for years and they gets top quality rooms at top rates!

In the vicinity of Orchard there are endless hotels----the Asia looks nice!---a few recommendations on this forum!

In my first trip in this year , I collected email addresses for at least 5 new hotels that I looked at!---but I left them in Singapore----I am on my second trip in now and I am unable to provide----Sorry!!!!!-----I have moved on from Hue 5 days ago!

On a note of caution,It is wise to stay at an hotel in Hue at this time of the year with a pool----Hue runs---35-39C regularly!------and I was glad of the pool!

The Thang Long 3 I know of but have never stayed at!

Good luck and don't worry-----Hue has plenty of quality space----Derlek might have a comment here as he is an old Hue man like me!

Hi Rasand,

I was in Hue in Jan 2007. Asia Hotel has normal room at US$30 and suite US$45. I also stayed at Truong Giang at US$22. These 2 are good and clean. I feel the Truong Giang is newer. Asia is a bigger hotel.

This hotel is a standard hotel (no stars)

Thang Long 3 Hotel

52 Chu Van An

Hue-Centre, TTH

Tel: 054-823-531

Mobile: 0903-586-396

E-m: -

Rooms: 12, largest is for 5 people, USD$20-35

Categories: 0*,Hotel,Hue,AC, balconies, coffee shop,NO elevator, InterNet

GPS: 16N28.13 / 107E35.77

Nothing special about this property other than it is just around the corner from the new office of the terrible Camel Opentour.

If you want a super friendly hotel that is close to all the action you might well consider:

Nguyen Tri Phuong Hotel

56 Nguyen Tri Phuong

Hue-Centre, TTH

Tel: 054-829-282

E-m: NguyenTriPhuong@yahoo.com

Categories: 0*,Hotel,Hue,AC, Balconies, coffee/snack facilities, FREE InterNet, NO elevator, Rooms: 16, largest 4 people, USD$8-12, 4 years old. (You won't want the USD$8 as it is on the top floor) Balcony rooms are USD$12.

GPS: 16N27.97 / 107E35.64

A 20 minute walk to the Citadel (down the road and across the bridge). Also close by are some decent restaurants.

If you want a classier joint - 2*3* - let me know, I have a special list of Hue hotels.

ABOUT DOUBLE BOOKING. The Orchid Manager is the only person clearing their e-mail for some reason. They have also experienced e-mail problems.

In other cases many of these 'on-line' res systems communicate with the hotels by e-mail and FAX by simply sending the 'booking' to the hotel and awaiting a rejection notice. Some hotels get sloppy and don't reply promptly resulting in 'double booking'.

It is always best to CONFIRM a booking through a res system with the hotel in question BEFORE you turn up. Many res systems do provide a telephone contact (almost never an e-mail) so you can call ahead.

You should never panic, though, as hotels usually have back-up arrangements with many hotels of similar class in their area.

The most important thing about VN hotels is location. As with real estate in most parts of the world the key element is location, location, location.

Many beautiful hotels are in simply terrible locations - the Hue Queen for instance. It is on a street running parallel to Ben Nghe and features police barracks, a street market (with its attendant noise and smell) but has minimal street traffic - other than buses parking in the police parking areas.

The pictures of the hotel are not accurate. But it is a real beauty of a property with a working fire escape. It suffered an 11 room serial break-in, along with Hue Heritage and a few others when a couple of Foreigners stole cameras, money, goodies, etc.

They got TV pix but they were of little use and the border is very porous landside.

We stayed at Hue Queen. Very nice hotel. We were on 7th floor (out of 8), so we had nice view of the city and mountians.
