We stayed here for 6nights. Our rooms was on the third floor but they mo d us to a lower floor when they could. The breakfast is good,to get you up,and going in the mornings. The beds are a bit hard but overall ok. The staff are friendly and very helpful and treat you l,e family at home. Please visit this hotel for a great stay.

Room Tip: Close to town. Walking distance to citadel and markets

We loved it from the first minute on, when the lovely Hong invited us in for a coffee and water while waiting for the room to be ready. She and her colleague Hanh made our stay a genuine "feel at home" stay and we ended up staying for 5 nights! Our room was spacious, nice and clean with two windows and a balcony. For breakfast i usually had a nice fruit salad with coffee which I found was really ok considering the price. The hotel itself is in a good location, not far from the citadel, so you can walk there easily. Of course you can also rent a motorbike or a bicycle to get around. Hong and Hanh will provide you with all the information you need, like where to eat, how to reach the beach and the tombs, or how to prepare and where to buy good vietnamese coffee. If you want you can also use the pool at Hong Thien 1 which is just 1minute away.
By now we have been travelling for 8 weeks through SEA and I would say it was the best budget hotel we stayed in! You want regret it!

Overall this place was great!! Our room was on the 5th floor, but the complimentary fruit and tea upon arrival prepared us for the steep hike to the room. The room was nice and clean, and more spacious then i would have thought, nice bathroom.
The pool was in the brother hotel, which was a tad annoying, but easy enough to find and use. Breakfast was basic but tasty.
Staff were AMAZING, so friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night but they left me feeling like family, i will miss the staff of this cute hotel.

good location, close to many restaurants. beds were hard but didn't seem to affect our sleep. bathroom was dated but for the price was acceptable. fan and air con was useful on hot days. staff were friendly, breakfast was minimal (not continental) but omlette in breadrool sufficed. if I return to hue we might try the newer hong thien 1 as it has an elevator rather than 4 flights of stairs and a pool.

The first night I stayed at the twice as expensive Houng Thien 1, for 20$ it had a more glamorous aesthetic but the bed was extremely hard and the desk person too much pushing tour packages for my taste though very friendly. Across the street is Houng Thien 2. I stayed happily for 2 nights. The room is minimal but has everything you need and half the price, only 10$. Soft bed, hot shower, wifi, minibar with correct prices on the items. No more than what you should pay on the street. The women at the front desk are very pleasantly low key and kind. Always asking about your day and how are you but never pushing sales or tours, only if you ask. I found this so refreshing. You can also use the same pool as HoungThien1 just across the street. Small but deep and clean. I really recommend if you don't mind minimal but cheap and good service!

I stayed 2 nights in that hotel and my time there was good. The staff try to help me as much as they can. The room was a really good value in terms price quality... no a 5 star hotel but a great price for the room (clean, internet, bathroom...). If I had to Hue again I would go back to that hotel.

Our family stayed in 2 rooms here. The kids room was on the top floor and was ok the bathroom wasfine and the beds were reasonably comfortable. This was the room we were showed before checking in. Upon checking in though my wife and I were given the room above reception on the first floor which was tiny, it had just one power point in the room which you either plugged the fridge into or the tv or maybe recharge a phone. The bed was so hard that we were going to change hotels but they put a thin foam underlay on it for us so we stayed the night. Insummary we hsd two rooms one was good the other terrible. The staff were nice and the breakfast was very basic.
My recommendation would be to not take the room above reception and just look at the room before you check in here as some rooms are fine.
The hotel is in a good location.
