“River View?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

We booked a room with a " balcony and a river view". There are no balconies at this hotel.You need binoculars to see the river.We just managed it by standing on the bed but had unfortunately forgotten to pack the high power navy binoculars.

It claims to be three star...no way!

Enjoy sweating? Then you'll enjoy sitting in the micro lobby that has no air conditioning and only one fan over the two breakfast tables which the staff monopolize to keep from feinting in the heat.

Or

Room Tip: Ask if the room has a balcony at reception(as per webpage)

Though the staff is ok, let's start to say, the intrinseque qualities of the hotel are very poor. The building design is entirely flawed, the carpets, the windows, the tiny swimming pool (or the bath I should say) are dirty and sickening.
Pass the way.

Room Tip: No one, absolutely

We had booked into this hotel for 3 nights, but thankfully only had to stay for 2 before being able to get a flight out. The hotel is disgustingly dirty. We went out in the morning, returned at 3pm and found the room had not been cleaned, rang reception and they said they would send someone up to do it. Housekeeping arrived, gave us clean towels, roughly mopped the bathroom floor and that was it - no vacuuming, no dusting, they didn't even make the bed! The bed had no top sheet only a thin quilt with no removable cover, I wonder if the whole quilt gets washed after every new guest???? The shower curtain had at least 8 inches of filthy black mould rising from the bottom of it. There must be better places to stay.

- stayed there fortunately only for one night
- booked it in advance, seemed okay on hotel site, 25$ per night
- view of the river is nice, but that's all
- bathroom is not clean, bed sheets neither
- bugs and mosqitos in the room
- no mosquito net
- the worst: club in the basement is even heard on top floor, almost no sleep at night

The benefit of large availibility of internet is that we can find any usefull activity when it is impossible to sleep. So it is why I am using my night to write these comments insted of sleeping.

I am making a tout in Vietnam with my spouse and have had no problem until kmow with rooms and am rather used to book all kind of hotel. But in this one I had first the surprise to notice that there were no bath foam in the bathroom, only used soap piece. It seems the bathroom has not been cleaned. After informing the reception, I saw a guy runinng up to the lift. I went to the restaurant thinking that my bathroom will have been cleaned, but I found it in the same status coming back.

The only difference was that the Night club in the basement had started is business and it was obvious in the lift. But at the heightth floor, I felt as inside the nightclub. So it is why I spent some time to write these comments as I have not succeed to sleep.

Another point, my english is not so rich, but it seems also that it is usefull to not understand.

I stayed here for almost a week when I travelled to Hue. The hotel is in good location and very close to all the famous places in Hue. With walking distance to the river, restaurants... Room was clean and reasonable for the price that I paid. Front desk was nice and respectful. I would recommend this hotel.

We had originally booked another hotel in Hue but were told on arrival that it was full, but that they could recommend another excellent hotel, the River View. We were told that we could have a room in the River View for the same price as expected to pay the other hotel (approx USD23-25 per night), but that usually, the River View charged USD40 - 80 a night. We were shown a brochure of the River View hotel which looked lovely, and agreed to move there. On arrival at the River View, the exterior of the hotel looked ok, although not really like the exterior picture on the brochure. We were taken to room 309. The room was dark, smelly, dirty, airless, the bathroom looked as if it had never been cleaned, and the carpets in the hotel corridor were in dire need of a clean. Sure, the room looked out onto a balcony, which was 2 inches wide with the balcony door "locked" by a rusty nail / long screw! Take a look if you don't believe us. We asked to move rooms, and were moved to a slightly better room, 401, which we were assured had been recently cleaned. However, there was a used sanitary towel on the bathroom shelf over the sink, and leftover cosmetics from a previous occupant. For good measure, there is no stairs going to the 4th floor, and the couple of times we had to use the lift we were waiting what felt like 10 mins. A definite fire hazard.

The brochure which was shown to us included a picture of a lovely swimming pool. This picture is not the pool in the River View hotel - it's not even the same shape!!! Of course, the pool was filthy and tiny and there is no way anyone would want to swim in it.

This hotel is not worth USD15 a night, never mind USD80. I would not recommend anyone to stay there.
