Chanced upon this hotel after seeing a promotion by Best Western for the dates of my stay and booked 2 nights with them. Turned out to be one of the best choices I've made, accommodation-wise!
The hotel itself is situated in the commercial part of town, south of the river and south of the imperial enclosure. The tourist area is about 10 minutes drive away. Nevertheless, the location can be described as very central, with a large supermarket just beside the property. Saw my name in their electronic bulletin board upon entering.
The rooms here are very well-furnished. It's like going back to the imperial age, with Indochinese motif inside the room. The beds are high and very comfortable. Excellent ambience overall. The bathroom setup here is a bit different but interesting. The washbasin area is separated by a small enclosure, with the bath and toilet being separated further with frosted glass doors. The bathroom is well-stocked with toiletries.
The breakfast selection here is excellent, with a healthy mix of western as well as local staples. I especially liked their local spread. Unlike other Vietnamese hotels which mainly have beef noodle soup and spring rolls, this hotel also has a specific focus on Central Vietnamese cuisine, including "banh nam" which is a personal favorite.
Service-wise, I would say it is excellent as well. I had booked for 8 rooms and our needs were well taken cared of. Check in was quick despite the number of rooms booked. At night, there is entertainment in the lobby lounge with a Filipino band singing the staples.
Facilities-wise, the hotel is well equipped with a pool and gym. Both were of reasonable size.
Overall, I highly recommend Best Western Premier Hue. For its price range, it offers great value and luxury.
