“Exceeded expectations. Best value in south east Asia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2011

The Than Thien "Friendly" Hotel, Hue was by far the best value that I discovered in six months of travel in all of south east Asia. I talked to other guests, too, who had a similar opinion. What a pleasant surprise it is, when expectations are exceeded!

The location is a few minutes walk from the main tourist area. I found it quiet at night and appreciated the Vietnamese ambience in the daytime. 

My wing of this small hotel was brand new and completely up to date. Glass shower door, granite sinks, granite hallways, excellent lighting, plugs galore, updated wireless, very good air. The design showed an attention to detail. Things were clean. 

The staff were, as the name implies, very friendly and helpful including the booking of bus and airline tickets. They made me feel at home, away from home, which is one of reasons for my return visit. 

The owner welcomes feedback and it is easy to tell that he cares about his guests and his staff and improving his hotel. 

I hope to return to Hue and definitely this hotel will be my first choice.

We booked a room at Than Thien through agoda, and it was a great choice in Hue! The location of the hotel was good - near the river, bridge and restaurants. The room was very clean and new, with TV, AC and a nice shower. The bed was one of the most comfortable we slept on in Vietnam. Staff was nice and helpful. Breakfast was good, with a choice of eggs made to order or soup. They are still working out the service for breakfast, though, so one morning our coffee arrived after we ate and was cold. The only other problem we had was that the wifi didn't work all the time. For the price, though, those were minor issues for us, and we'd stay there again.

I live in Da Nang and visit Hue every few months. I have stayed at many hotels in the area and feel very lucky that a friend told me about the Than Thien Hotel. Location places it within easy walk to central Hue restaurants, shops, and bars. Easy walking distance to the Perfume River.
Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was excellent. (Maybe the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in, in Vietnam). A very nice glassed in shower with lots of hot water. Most amazing was that everything in the room worked, no missing light bulbs, door latches, cabinet doors, windows, phone, television. Nice restaurant on first floor but menu is not extensive and they are still working out breakfast buffet, but staff is friendly and accommodating.
It is unlikely that I will be staying at any other hotel in Hue for a very long time.

Fantastic service and room. Strong recommend as I went door to door at number of hotels and this one was awe inspiring fantastic. Best hotel I have stayed in any continent! And it was only $15 a night for such amazing quality and service. The manager helped us personally with a slight problem with the wall mounted plasma tv.. The receptionists deserve a special commendation for their smiles and out of their way help... I wish I could take this hotel with me for the next two months. It is worth coming to Hue just to stay here haha!

The hotel is very clean. The room is the same as in the picture. What I like best is the bed. It is very comfortable. The thing missing from the room is hairdryer. Although you can ask for hairdryer at the receptionist desk, I think it is better if they provide it at every room. The staffs are very helpful. They speak English fluently.
The location is about 3 km away from Citadel and few meters away from Perfume River. There is a small pier near the hotel where we can take a boat. You can also rent a bike at a shop few meters from the hotel to go around the city.

The cleanest and friendliest hotel we've stayed in in Vietnam. The room was modern and immaculately clean, it included cable tv, minibar, wifi, a very comfortable bed and a shiney new bathroom. Breakfast was straight forward, but in keeping with the overall standard of the hotel, it too was excellent. The staff were really friendly with a better grasp of English than me at times, they informed us that we could book a trip along the river through them, so we did, and this too was very good. We were in Hue for 4 days and neither the hotel or its staff put a foot wrong. Don't let the bargain price put concern you, this place is a gem.
