    Interesting accommodation!


    This hotel is in a lovely location on the banks of the perfume river, with many of it's rooms having great views. Our room was furnished top to tail in varnished bamboo furniture, which was a bit much really. The lobby area is more traditional and regal in style and provides a very good first impression.
    In general, our stay in this hotel was pleasant, but there were some problems. The restaurant, which looked like it seated 100, couldn't cope with a table of 8 people eating at once (the rest of the restaurant was empty), and we waited a very long time for certain items from our order. On check out, they mixed our bill up with someone else's, and it took a very long time to resolve the problem.

    For groups mainly


    Huong Giang is a hotel complex lying by Perfume riverside. It is an old fashioned complex undergone renovation but nevertheless the exterior shows its age (in style). The rooms are spacious, furniture in bamboo style, clean and with all amentities you may expect from a 4 star hotel. There is one unique advantage of this hotel. Its location. Lying next to Perfume river you can enjoy lovely views. Even though our room had pool view, we were able to enjoy the riverview from communal balcony in our floor which was seldom visited by tourists. The hotel lobby is spacious and very impressive imitating the interior of a Chinese temple in colors and decoration.
    Breakfast was buffet, served in the hotel restaurant overlooking the river but as there were a lot of groups staying it was also busy and hard to find a table to enjoy the view.
    The hotel offers a swimming pool which I strongly advice you against its use as the water in it was badly maintained.
    The hotel offers sauna/massage at a price of 12 euros (body and facial) for almost 1.30hour which is great value for European standards (excluding tip for the masseur which is expected). And here comes the funny part: whether single male or engaged, the masseur was happy to offer…extra services!!!
    The hotel mainly caters groups and it’s on the pricey side, so unless you book it through a tour, it’s more unlike that will end up there.
    It takes half an hour from there crossing the metal bridge to enter the old Hue city.

    Palace by the River


    Huong Giang Hotel has been constructed in 1962 and opened as a hotel in 1976; there are no informations about those 14 years; most probably it has been used for the governement.
    The hotel offers nice large rooms, most of them overlooking the "Perfume"- River, as Huong River is also called, or looking into one of the well groomed tropical gardens. Other amenities are plentiful, as a large pool, massage and beauty-parlour, a restaurant decorated with historical artefacts and 2 bars. There are frequently performances of Vietnamese dances and cultural customs as well as "historical dinners", where guests are clad in historical costumes, the hotel provides.

    Unique Quality: Most beautiful characteristic is the hotels location on the banks of Perfume River, where one can watch the many busy boats early in the morning or wonderful sunsets.

    Directions: near Trang Tien Bridge by the river (see photo #4)

    reasonable hotel


    Right on the Perfume River. The picture shows the back side of the hotel, facing the river, which is not as impresive as the front side, facing the street. Rooms are large and each has a balcony on the river. View is nice.
    The common halls are uniquely decorated. They offer massages at the health club in the hotel, but we had them nicer and better in other places.
    breakfast is crowded and very modest, as the hotel are popular by groups

    Unique Quality: Waking up in the morning looking out of the hotels window you will find yourself in the misty riverside and when the sun sets in the afternoon the colour of the river will turn purple

Vietnam Grand Tour

by galy

"Ariving at Hanoi -27.1"

27.1 We arived at Hanoi in the evening, 6 tired people, after a whole day on the way, airoplanes and aorports. We met our great guide for the area:Mr Tran Tuan Anh. I knew him only from the internet. We planned this tour together for about half a year. He was very pasionet and helpfull during the process and we were anxious to meet him at last. Supper at the night food market, and too our hotel. Melia Hanoi, nice 5 stars hotel

"Around Hanoi - 27,28.1"

The one and a half next days were spent in Hanoi. The HoChiMinh museleum, the park with his house, the One Pillar Pagoda, the Temple of Litraure, the old city, The market, a beautiful vegeterian restaurant, and strolling in the street

"Halong bay - 28,29.1"

Afternoon we started our way to Halong bay. The roads are not so good, many of them under constructuion. Nevertheless we (our driver) had to pay for going on them. Late afternoon we go to Halong city. in the evening we stroled the main street and had a nice seafood dinner. HaLong Plaza was a nice hotel to stay in. next morning during breakfast we met in the dinning room an Israeli fan. Good to know there are still some of them around. The highlight of the day was of course the boat sailing in the bay. A whole big boat for us, asstonishing scenary, so beautifull and peacefull, and wonderfull seafood lunch cooked fresh on the boat. What else can you ask for?
After the boat ride, back to Hanoi. through rice fields and markets on the way. In the evening, a special dinner at a vegeteria restaurant in the old city, and then, the night train to LaoCai. On the train Dany slept with the girls and Mike and Izo with Tuan Anh shared a cabin with a chunese guy

"Sapa - 30.1.2003"

Arived at LaoCai, at 6a.m. not with much sleep on the way (although we had a soft sleep cabin) We were 7 people, and there are 4 berts in a cabin so there was a chinese guy with us. the 40 km' from LaoCai to Sapa took more then 2 hours, mostly on gravel road. The sceneray as we climbed up was beautifull. The Victoria Sapa hotel was very nice, and after a short freshening up, we went to visit the market, and from their to the Catcat falls. That night we celebrated Miki's 60th birthday at the hotel's restaurant. It was fabulus. with all the food and the drinks, it cost abour $25 pp.

"Sapa - TaVan - 31.1,1.2.2003"

We starte the day b decending from Sapa to LaoChai, a Black Hmong village. Our local guide was Viet who was very knowledgable about the area. We crossed the bridge over the river and trecked our way through beautiful scenary to the village of TaVan. Viet and our hosts were preparing dinner, while we were resting at a banks of the river.

"BacHa 2.2.2003"

The ride to BAcHa took 3 hours, although it is only 70km away. The roads are bad, but the scenary is beautifull. We stayed at the best hotel in BacHa, which is about 2-3 *. Hot water in the bathroom is limited, so we had to take turns showering. We had a dinner at the hotel restaurant, some speacial Tet soop, with pork meat(and fat)and bambooshots, and ofcourse the usual springrolls, which we love so much. Next morning we went out for a stroll in the village. Because of Tet, the famouse market didn't take place. On the fravel road, hundreds of people, especialy Flower Hmong, were heading to the village center, all in new beautifull dresses. The plum trees blooming around on the teraces, were beatifull. One family invited us to their home, and we had to drink alcohil again. Cooming back to the village center, it was full of celebrating people, enjoing the beautifull day. In the afternoon, bac to LaoCai, with a stop for a boat ride in the river, and then the night train back to Hanoi

"Vilages around Hanoi 3.2"

That was a prety bussy day, we started with a potery village, where we bought some more presents, to aother pagoda, then to the snake village for a snake meal, and in the evening the water puppet show. Next morning to the airport, we flew to Hue

"Hue Marble Mountain to Hoi An 4.2, 5.2.2003"

Inn the morning we flew to Hue.Lan waited for us and after a lunch in a tourist restaurant (awful) we visited the forbidden city. In the evening we asked Lan for a local dinner, so she arranged a dinner coocked fresh for us on a boat sailing on the Perfume river. It was pouring rain outside, but very nice and cozy on the bouth, and the owner family was very freindly. Dinner was greeat, and the whole aveture cost less then 10$p.p. We slept at the Huong Giang hotel, and when Izo took his massage they offered him (again) another type of massage.
Next morning we went to Visit the TuDuc Tomb and the pagoda of Thien Mu during a guided boat trip on the Perfume River. At noon we went for a stroll in the market and bought some "neckleses" of lotus seeds. After lunch we left Hue and drove from Hue to DaNang via Hai Van mountain pass, to the Marble mountain. Visited a local marble shop, and argued, if the sculptures where reak marble or some plaster coated with marble dust. Anyway, they are beautifull. We went in to the Marble mountain site although Lan tryed to discourage us because of the many steps. It was very nice and we were glad we visited it. Drove further into the night through small villages, with small (empty) houses, all with open dors so we could picked inside. Arrived at Hoi An to the Victoria Hotel

Hue Hotel - Century riverside, saigon morin or Huong Giang Hotel

by noddapood


I'm going to Hue next week. Which hotel do you recommend?
Century riverside, Saigon morin or Huong Giang Hotel?

I only have 1 day there. Where should I visit?



RE: Hue Hotel - Century riverside, saigon morin or Huong Giang Hotel

by stedeb

Providing you have a full day I would suggest taking the river cruise this will give you a good overall view of some of the important places around Hue. Alternately you could spend most of the day at The Citadel whih is very interesting but you will need a Lonely Planet or similar as we found there was no information we got all the info form the LP guide. There is also a very good market just over the bridge and watch out for the lights being turned on we were almost blinded as we were crossing the bridge at the time the lights went on.

RE: Hue Hotel - Century riverside, saigon morin or Huong Giang Hotel

by iwys

I agree, you should take the 1-day dragon boat cruise down the Perfume River and then get them to drop you off at the Citadel at the end. I have just been there and put details of this and all of the places to visit, on my Hue pages this week. I really recommend the Phu An Hotel- it is amazing value for a brand-new hotel.

RE: Hue Hotel - Century riverside, saigon morin or Huong Giang Hotel

by globe_trekker

I recommend Saigon Morin Hotel which locates at the center, across the Truong tien bridge. From there, you can even walk to Citadel (turn to left after crossing the bridge), Dong ba market (turn to the right after crossing the bridge), very close to the tourists/backpacker services area. There are several good restaurants a short walk away from the hotel ( to the left as you exit the main door of the hotel).
