“Great play to stay with great price”
Reviewed October 21, 2009

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.

Reviewed August 6, 2009

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.
