We just stayed for three nights, and there is no better place to stay in Hue for the money than the Morin- I simply cannot understand why it is not ranked number one here on Trip Advisor. Stepping into the lobby transports you back in time to an older age of pampered luxury only reserved for the wealthy upper class, and it’s exquisite charm and character perfectly matches Hue, once the home of the rulers of the country. Don’t make the mistake of choosing one of the newer hotels when in Hue, save them for other stops on your trip.
The location is the best in town. Open the double doors and step out onto your private terrace and soak in the view of the Perfume River ( do splurge and book a river view room) and the iconic bridge crossing it, which lights up in multi colors at night. Watch the dragon boats slowly cruising by at all hours of the day. Between you and the river is the riverfront park, which hosts a night market every evening. And it’s just a short 5 minute walk to the backpacker district, which has streets upon streets of restaurants.
The room itself is incredible large and well appointed and furnished. The hotel wraps around a central courtyard which contains the pool and outdoor dining area which is where you will be taking breakfast. Sitting there among the trees and beautiful grounds you might think you are in Europe. I just feel the ambiance of the hotel is the ideal complement to this part of your Vietnam trip.
