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.
