Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We stayed here for two nights, the quality of the room was very good, with a great bathroom and very powerful shower. The hotel is very good value for money, with extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Good location, very near all the restaurants and shops. Would defiantly recommend staying here. The staff were excellent

Looking at the photos I think we got the worst room in the hotel. It was clean but small, not too much space around the bed. It had a fridge, wifi and air con (the air con wasn't the best but we told the lady when we were leaving and she said they would look into it). The breakfast was good; coffee, eggs and a bread roll. The hotel is in a great location in the backpacker area and the staff were friendly and very helpful, they gave us a good map and showed us points of interest.

We stayed here one night, and one night was enough. We ended up changing as out room had an abundance of ants (in and around the beds) and cockroaches. It was such a shame as the staff were really lovely and were helpful, but the quality of the accommodation was just poor. The bathroom didn't lock, has a hole in the door, and you shared it with a cockroach. All in all, wouldn't visit again.

Room Tip: We had what what classed as one of the better room, and it still wasn't very good.

Excellent ! Rooms are immaculate and have balcony and the property is well located. But this is nothing compared to great hospitality of the wonderful team there. Hang, Hong and Ly have been so accommodative and helpful and made my stay in Hue so enjoyable.I recommend this hotel for every traveler !!!

The very friendly staff arranged a taxi pick up from the bus stop after a very long journey which started our stay very well. On arrival our room was very spacious and comfortable and an added bonus was the balcony which over looked the quiet street, away from the backpacker area, although this is a short walk away if that is what you are after!

When staying here unfortunately I was quite ill and Hong was lovely making me hot lemon juice and food to settle my stomach, and even checked on me in the morning. Such a lovely lady and cook and kept my boyfriend well fed!!

The hotel organises tours as well, but if you are wanting to see only certain things they can organise a private car which is a lot cheaper if you are in a group.

Hotel 2 is more the budget option rather than hotel 1, however you can use the swimming pool after one call from the reception staff, another added bonus at no extra cost :-)

Not a bad word to say about the hotel. We were collected from our bus free of charge and greeted by the lovely lady at reception who offered us a banana and cup of tea which was nice. As we were only staying 1 night we didn't book any trips but again the reception lady was more than accomodating without you feeling pressured. The room was big and clean with a nice little balcony. Tv was modern with a good signal and wifi free in your room with access to a computer downstairs. The staff were simply lovely, thanks for a great stay.

I slept well, and the staff was very helpful. They pointed me toward good vegetarian places to eat and helped me get around town. Rooms are clean and cleaning staff is very friendly. They booked me a bus to Hoi An and picked me up from the train station. Cheap rooms too, which is awesome. I recommend to travelers!
