Where to Stay in Hue / Best Hotels in Hue, Vietnam
The attractions of Hue are subtler than those of nearby charming Hoi An or bustling Hanoi, but visiting Hue is a traveller’s best opportunity to understand how typical Vietnamese people live. It is also a fantastic destination for vegans and vegetarians who want to try typical Vietnamese Buddhist cuisine – seriously, it is veggie heaven!
(Don’t miss our guide to Hue vegan and vegetarian restaurants.)
Hue is also an excellent jumping-off point for Phong Nha and points south. We’ve picked the best hotels in Hue so you don’t have to waste time trolling reviews! You’re welcome.
These are our recommendations for the best hotels in Hue, Vietnam.
All prices are approximate and current as of Jan 2017. Ratings come from Booking.com.
Rating 9.0, $10/night for a dorm bed, breakfast included
This is one of the most popular hostels in Hue and is located right in the centre of the tourist district, so you won’t need to look far for restaurants or cafes. They have a 6-bed female dorm and a 10-bed mixed dorm and offer an evening family style meal that you can join for only 40,000 VND (less than $2).
Rating 9.0, $15 for a double, breakfast not included
We stayed here and loved it.
I loved the Sunny B Hotel so much I stayed here twice. The rooms are big and include a balcony and excellent, professional plumbing in the bathroom. If you’ve travelled in Asia for a while you’ll know just how rare good plumbing is. The location is also good, if a little outside of the action, with the highly-rated Family Home Restaurant just across the street.
Note that the map location on Booking.com for Sunny B Hotel is incorrect (as of Jan 2017). Google Maps has the correct location, though it says Original Binh Duong 3 (Sunny B Hotel) for the name.
You can also try Sunny A Hotel, their sister property right across the alley.
Rating 9.8, $38-44 for a double, breakfast included
If you’re hankering after a little bit of inexpensive luxury, this place looks outstanding. It kind of makes me want to cry to think about the horrible room we got in India for the same price.
Rating 9.3, $100 for a waterfront double, $125 for a bungalow, breakfast included
Want to completely spoil yourself? Head out of Hue to this lagoon-side luxury resort. You can stay in a villa or bungalows and be treated to massage, Tai Chi, and yoga. Sigh. Let’s go there now.
