The location was very good for visiting the forbidden city, but the hotel itself is depressing. There are 3 beds per room and the room decor is dated. The beds are uncomfortably HARD. The sheets are SCRATCHY. The restaurant decor/ambience reminded me of a hospital cafeteria. The bar room is old and tired and the staff is not keen on providing service. Overall, the hotel feels like a hotel in an Eastern Block country: institutional, dated, worn and tired.The only shower is in the tub, which has a very high rim and the shower mat does not anchor. I almost killed myself trying to step into the tub for a shower. Unless all of the other hotels in Hue are worse than this one, I would not stay at the Saigon Morin. On check out, the staff pursued a member of our tour group onto the bus,demanding the return of an allegedly pilfered washcloth (apparently the staff counts all towels on checkout). Why anyone would pilfer one of their poor quality scratchy washcloths is a mystery. Why any hotel would risk return bookings from a large tour agency over a washcloth is another mystery.
