The receptionist is very friendly, so is the hotel manager. They are always smiling and helped me organise tours ( moto taxi who took me around the city for a good rate), bus, train to Hoi An.
The breakfast is very good. You can choose between a variety of items. I has french bread, fruit plate, orange juice and fried eggs.
Can't complain at all.

On the poor side is the cleaning standards and the mal function of the toilet.
When i arrived I found a dead ( thak God it was dead) cookroach on the floor. The toilet was overflowing ( nice, uh?) the shower could be better. The water was weak and the head piece very low.

I had a shower wearing my sleepers and slept inside my silk sleeping bag - just in case.

I paid 16 dolars for a night and thougt it was very cheap - only to find out you can get a much better place for a similar rate. :-( And it seems like I was overcharged as everyone is talking about 8/9 dollars.

As budget travellers, we were very impressed with Bao Minh. $8/night (double - $4 for a single) gets you super clean room, hot water, tv, wifi, fridge etc. Breakfast not included, but available very cheaply. As prices have gone up on Hue, this is an excellent deal. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 1 night in July and at the beginning we were we quite happy with our choice, 9 usd for a double room so a good price. The location is good as you're in walking distance from the citadel, river, restaurants....

However, as our time went on, the owner's insistence on tours became more and more grating. We didn't really want to do a moto tour as we'd done this in another place very recently but he kept on at why we should do it, very pushy. His English was pretty good, until we tried to tell him we'd seen a rat which he didn't seem to understand??

The rooms were OK. We had an A/C room but the A/C was awful, we eventually just left it on all the time even when we weren't in the room (sorry environment...) and even then the room was still pretty warm.

Our washing was later to come back than they'd said which was pretty annoying as we couldn't get dressed 'til we'd got it back. The woman who works there is very nice though, English not very good but she's friendly.

Overall it wasn't a bad experience but everything was a bit of an effort...wouldn't stay there again.

I stayed at the Bao Minh hotel with my boyfriend for two nights on our way down Vietnam. After reading the lonely planet books which advertised good places to stay in the guesthouse alley we gave it a try we looked at a few other hotels in the street which offered the same room for 5-10 dollars more. The rooms are fairly clean and large
with all the amenities fridge AC private bathroom. The AC wasn't
great and the rooms could gave been cooler but it did not ruin
ourstay. The staff are friendly and helpful and we did a motorbike tour of the city which was great and the best way to see everything. Stay at the boa minh hotel if u want to be in a great central location on a budget!

This hotel is good value and has nice rooms for $7, however, they will push tours on you. I caved in and agreed to a city tour with the young guy who worked there. I agreed $8 and went on the back of a motorbike. I thought I'd get a bit of insight into the history of the city but apparently it turned out that $8 only buys you the services of the a motorbike driver and fuel! The first stop was an awkward visit to a village that makes and sells incense where you're hassled to buy stuff whilst the guide...er driver....smokes and drinks tea. The rest of the time I had to put up with him insinuating I should pay him more if I wanted to know any history and when I tested him on one or two things I did know, his knowledge was questionable anyway. When I asked him 'where next?', he'd just say, 'up to you', at which point I'd have to consult my Lonely Planet.
I would recommend staying at this hotel, but not the tours.
