57/3 Nguyen Cong Tru Street, Hue City, Hue, Vietnam.
This place was sourced and booked for me by my friends at Phuoc An River Hotel in Hoi An.
Here’s a tip. If you have a good relationship with the people at the hotel that you’re staying at then you will get a better price if they book your next hotel for you.
I’ve stayed at Phuoc An River Hotel a number of times now and get them to take care of everything for me.
Travelling by motorbike, speaking no Vietnamese and without GPS can be a little frustrating so, note to self, this place is down a lane way.
There's an advantage to this because it's in a quiet location and it has a knock out coffee place(Giao Mua) just across the lane.
Top attractions in the local area include the DMZ Bar & Cafe which is where a lot of foreigners gather and it's literally just around the corner.
This hotel is in an area with plenty of restaurants and plenty of sightseeing opportunities whether it's local or launching a trip further afield to Khe San, Vinh Moc tunnels, DMZ1 and The Rockpile.
Price is great($18 inc. breakfast).
Great staff who were very attentive and were very keen for me to make comment on Trip Advisor.
Tourist attractions nearby;
Thien Mu Pagoda, the major Buddhist Temple is just a half hour boat trip up the river(200,000d return booked via the hotel) and worth every darn dong.
The Imperial City is just a 5 minute car/bike trip away or an interesting 45 minute walk along the river.
I was in a standard river view room and it was quite comfortable as well as being well appointed and, most importantly, clean(although guys you really do need to check UNDER the beds just like I did before I left checking for anything that might have been kicked under).
As far as the "attentive staff" comment is concerned they really do TRY and because I'm in sales I like good service AND good after sales service and of all the hotels I've stayed in Vietnam this is the only one that's followed ME up so I thought I'd share the email I was sent on the afternoon I left 'cos I think this says it all;
