“Great location, friendly and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights. The staff are lovely and helpful with tours, taxi, etc ! The location is great, easy to get about. The first night we had a room near the lift and stairs and unable to open any window. Don't stay in these rooms. The next night the moved us to the fourth floor, we slept so well. Away from lift and stairs, was a great room. The shower was hot however seems both nights that after about about two minutes the water temp cools off and your standing washing hair with temp going down and on maximum hot. This is a first world problem I know!! The hotel and rooms are very clean, and overall it was great.good value for money, good location and clean.

This is a fantastic hotel for the price, much better then we expected . Than Thien hotel was the cheapest of all the hotels we booked for our stay in Vietnam.If your looking for value for money it was one of the best.. Our room was clean and comfortable. We booked a Deluxe Double room with a window , so we had natural light .Breakfast was ok, freshly made eggs of choice [very good],but all other hot food was bland . Staff were very friendly and helpful, they helped us book onward travel to Hoi An also some tours in Hue , [a great service ] .They also noticed that it was my wifes birthday during our stay and brought a birthday cake to our room as a gift, a very nice gesture.The hotel also has a Laptop in the lobby for guest use . This hotel is in a very central location in Hue and the owner is on site if you need any help ,[ a very interesting and friendly man] We would highly recommend this hotel .

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a room with a window and view , if you want natural light.

I wish my stay at Than Thien Friendly was better than it was. Check in was fine, and staff friendly (as the name suggests) but my main bugbears were that the non smoking room smelt of smoke, the bathroom fan made a horrible rattling noise and breakfast was ordinary.

Extremely good value. Nice hotel and good breakfast. The hotel is situated in the area where almost every backpacker or tourist has a hotel. Just take a moto if you want to visit the market or the purple forbidden city. We would highly recommend this hotel.

breakfast is good. staff is helpful and friendly. room is very clean. bed is really comfortable, and have free wifi in room. the hotel worth the value.
However, I felt a little bit disappointed with our Deluxe room, which without outside window (only has a inside window face to elevator ). there is no natural light and there is no privacy if we open the inside window.

Firstly the position of the hotel was great, everything within easy reach. The room was excellent with an extremely hot shower whatever the time of day. Breakfast was buffet style but unlimited eggs cooked freshly to order. We would definately come back. Staff very helpful & willing to assist.

Arriving at the hotel quite late we were greeted with several smiling and happy staff which was great after a long trip from Mui Ne to Hue. We were shown to our rooms (fourth floor) and quickly shown the facilities. For the price we paid (around $17 per night for a standard double room) this room was incredible value. If someone had told us it was $50 per night that would have been fine!

The room was spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom which was also excellent and very well fitted out compared to some other hotels i've stayed in (internationally and within Vietnam). The room itself had a good selection of cable TV channels (even catering for some European languages other than the ubiquitous English channels) as well as a good wi-fi connection throughout the hotel. Along with these facilities, the room was furnished with a small desk, two comfy chairs and a great quality (and incredibly comfy) bed completed the room. While the overall room size is smaller than some rooms I stayed in while in Vietnam, the quality totally made up for this.

Outside the room the corridors and foyer within the hotel are also spotless and seemingly filled with incredibly happy and friendly staff who cannot do enough to help you, whether this is for booking a tour (they have a great set list of tours, would recommend the private car tour of the Highway 1 DMZ area as it's only $60 and a lot better than a group tour!).

Finally the restaurant itself, I had two breakfasts in here and both were great. A wide variety of food suitable for anyone really, along with some freshly cooked Vietnamese specialities, fresh fruit, coffee and fruit juices. The fact that this also comes within the room rate just increases the value of this incredible hotel.

I would love to come back to Hue again as it's an incredible city and I would never stay anywhere else after my two night stay this time. Anyone who stays anywhere else is missing out to be honest!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor if available, the road isn't exceptionally busy but in Vietnam that still...
