Ngoc Huong Hotel
Ranked #92 of 122 Hotels in Hue
Reviewed 20 August 2012

First impressions: Nice, decent, family-owned, multi-storied hotel. Averaging 40-55 GBP pp per night, it's a tad overpriced among its peers for its 3-star rating. (Some hotel booking websites offer a 50% discount.) Grade A-minus.

Pros: Though situated close to the outskirts of Hue, it is still within walking distance to Thuan An Beach, Dong Ba market and the Old Imperial City. The presence of a rooftop pool, though small, doesn't hurt either. (It is more a wading pool, rather than a swimming pool of sorts.) Desk service is accommodating and friendly. They arranged for a motorcycle tour of Hue for me and my friends. Complimentary buffet breakfast is included.

Cons: Not exactly the hotel's fault, but the entire length of Le Loi Street is "littered" with taxi and motorcycle drivers who are loudly competing for your business.

Verdict: Nice place to stay. Adequate for a few nights but, for longer stays, there are better offers in the city.

We stayed here twice, once a couple of years ago and more recently. It was lovely both times. quite, good and professional service. A family owned hotel.
Amazing pool on the roof is a bonus after along hot day wandering around.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony.

We stay there 3 days during my trip to VietNam. It has well location in Hue business center, we use to walk to Dong Ba market from here. For a 3 star hotel, it's very well done with friendly staff looking over cleaned room and pretty good breakfast. They are friendly, enthusiastic and always ready to give the us the best information. Good value for money,I'd like to recommend this hotel for other traveller in Hue. Thank you Ngoc Huong

Basic and clean. Location is right in the centre, short walk to the 'Huong' river & 'Trang Tien' bridge. Average room with balcony. Best part is breakfast with a good selection of Vietnamese dishes, served on the top floor with panoramic view of the river. Helpful and professional staff.

Call me an old sceptic but when all the other reviews are so good I wondered if they were actually real or a set up, but fortunately they are all true. Hotel is perfect, service is excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone always smiling. Pay the extra $25US and get the executive suite with the balcony !

This is a lovely hotel right in the centre of Hue, so it is easy walking distance to wherever you want to go. We got upgraded to a suite as we were on honeymoon which was extremely spacious and had a jacuzzi bath. The swimming pool is on the roof with excellent views of Hue. Would definitely recommend.
