Stayed 2 nights in July with friends and family. In fact, I am a returned guest and I must admit the hotel has tried hard to improve and upgrade many things from last year's very low expectation. This year, I happened to stay in the same room type looking down the wonderful Houng River. The room is better this year with magnetic card lock, cleaner bed and bedsheets and toilets etc. I think with only around 50 dollar a night for a river-view room, it is a very good bargain. The bathroom is clean and well functioned with clean towels. The only complaint is the shower is so weak. I would take my complaint back if it is hotel's policy to conserve water. The breakfast restaurant is the most improved part of the hotel. It is now rather like 3-4 star break fast, not so bad as last year. Now you can have fairly good breakfast. Another bad thing is the pool was under reconstruction the week we stayed so no swimming, very bad. Nobody informed us of the situation in advance! Anyway, this is a very good location again. Across the street, there are plenty of good restaurants. For a 40 thousand dong taxi (about 2 dollars), you can reach the Forbidden City where kings of Vietnam used to stay and where you now can find lots of things for your own interest from craft to food to ancient houses etc.... all within walking distance. I like the place

Room Tip: Do book a river view room as it is only a few bucks different

My family and I stayed for two nights at the Century Riverside hotel in Hue. Hue is a great place to visit with lots to see. The hotel is conveniently located in the centre if town with easy access to lots of great eating places. Location 10/10. Unfortunately the hotel is well short of a 4 star and is very tired. The showers were difficult to operate and needed to be held in place to prevent water spraying all around the bathroom. The toilet in one of our rooms did not work. The pool was und repair and unavailable during our stay when the days were 36 degrees. Breakfast was satisfactory. The air conditioners sounded like a freight train! Staff were pleasant and helpful. Overall, two star at best.

We were in Hue for 2 days and found the Century to be a fine place to stay.
Our room was on third floor with great view facing the river.
Facitity was quite old but suitable with price.
Buffet breakfast was not very good but ok.
Swimming pool was not big but very nice.
The staff was friendly and helpful.
We booked a City Tour to visit this peaceful city in Information Desk next to the door. The staff here spoke English very good, helpful and humorous. The tour was interesting with good tour guide and good price.

This hotel was once gorgeous, now aging but at approx $40-50 a night, worth it. Positives: rooms clean and big, nice amenities, pool relaxing and pretty (even if tiles falling in places), diverse breakfast, great location near river market and restaurants, staff friendly and helpful. Negatives: the carpets in hallways have an odor, building itself has seen better days, prices for excursions are high ( use " why not?" down the road, they got us a fabulous car to Hoi An with a great driver for $60 with multiple stops).
