Reviewed March 10, 2014

Our very large room was well furnished and close to the Hue sights. We loved that they maintained the historic features throughout. The bathroom was also nice, with excellent toiletries, but the lighting was terrible. I am not sure what to do about that, short of wearing a miner's lamp. That seemed to be a constant problem at all hotels, and I guess if you look at the huge bundles of wires hanging from posts and balconies throughout Vietnam, you might understand that they have electricity problems. Staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good, with plenty of choices. We were able to walk to a nearby restaurant that our guide recommended, but beware of uneven rather dangerous sidewalks.

Dear Mrs. Mxalpert,

Greetings from Hotel Saigon Morin, Hue!

First of all, I would like to thank you so much for staying with us and taking time to post your kind and valuable comments on TripAdvisor.

I am delighted to hear that you loved that we maintained the historic features throughout and enjoyed your stay at our large room with well-furnishment, excellent bathroom, near by Hue sights and good breakfast with plenty of choices . It is also glad to know that our friendly and helpful staff made your stay comfortable. I will share your compliments to my staff to keep them motivated.

Hotel’s colonial style and it’s history are typical characters so we will try our best to keep them and improve hotel service and facilities to be better in the next time as well.

We stayed at the Saigon Morin for two nights and were delighted to be given an upgrade on arrival to an executive suite. All the staff were overly friendly and helpful greeting us with smiles everywhere we went. Our suite was nearly the size of a small house complete with a personal library, grammaphone and glass cabinet with expensive whiskey bottles. The bathroom was a large room in itself with a spa bath, stereo system and all the amenities you would need. Each evening our turndown service would leave a bed time story on the bed to read. The hotel was built in 1901 and unfortunately our room had an old musky smell about it. Whilst the hotel prides themselves on a glowing review of their breakfast from a journalist in 2006 I found it to be fairly average with much of the fruit dry and tasteless and the eggs were overcooked and cold.

We found this hotel to be suited to our needs, it was clean and spacious and located in the perfect place to enjoy Hue town and market. Breakfast was fine and provided enough choice, we didn't have any other meals in the hotel as we like to get out and explore, and there were so many places to pick from nearby.

We stayed here recently for 2 nights during a tour of Vietnam and had a very pleasant stay. The room was large and the bathroom and toiletries excellent. We did find the room a little dark, but this was a minor matter of taste. The heavy window drapes are beautiful. It was also quite a long walk from our particular room to the stairs/lifts to the public areas.

The buffet breakfast is excellent, enjoyed indoors because of the weather on the first day, and outdoors on the second day. We also enjoyed one evening meal in the restaurant.

In general the service was very good, our only criticism being that service was rather slow and a little haphazard for our evening meal, but that was probably because at the same time they were struggling with a large party in the restaurant, and with a special Valentine's Night Dinner.

Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay here and would recommend this hotel..

How refreshing to find a hotel on our travels that met all of our needs. Superbly large room with lovelyFrench Colonial furnishings. Every amenity in the room, tea and coffee, and surprise surprise even a mirror in the room beside a socket! The breakfast is very good as is the evening meal. There is entertainment and staff are polite and helpful. If you ask for anything it is delivered to your room within minutes. Excellent location overlooking the river. I would certainly stay here again and recommend it.

This is the second time I have stayed at this French Colonial hotel. It is a "jewel" on the Perfume River in Hue. I took 13 people for two nights and everyone had a great time. The breakfast in the morning in their garden was great. Yes the beds are a little hard but that seems to be the Vietnamese way. This hotel has been well maintained and all of the rooms are very large. The historical pictures on the hallway walls are very interesting. The hotel is central to the downtown area. I will stay there again for sure.

Room Tip: Garden side is less noisy than front of hotel.

This was our second stay at this lovely hotel, it has a good location over looking the river and is just a short walk to the local restaurants and bars. The rooms are of a very high standard, we took a city view room this time, which is just a smaller version of the river view rooms and cheaper. The hotel give us an early check-in, 11am which was very good of them, with no extra charge.
Breakfasts here are excellent, a great range of local and western dishes and it's a lovely area in the garden to enjoy it.
The pool is very nice but the tiles around it are very slippery, so beware.
Love this hotel and Hue is a must to see in Vietnam.
