Stay Hotel

Great for insiders tips

What we say: 3.5 stars

Formerly the Hoan Thien, this six-storey giant (don't worry, it has an elevator) was taken over in early 2014 by French brothers Arnauld and Gaulthier and given a bit of a makeover. Rooms are elegant and understated, and comfortably furnished with cable TV, fridge, complicated air-con system and fan. Bathroom quality varies room to room, but you can be assured of hot-water showers and bath tubs in the higher rated rooms. Included breakfast is served from a huge open kitchen in the lobby. When we stayed they had only been (re)open a few months and were experiencing a few teething problems – they claim that all rooms are soundproofed, but we don't believe there is a soundproofing system in the world that can protect you from the dawn rise of a large Vietnamese tour group. To avoid early wake ups, go for an upper level room or head across the road to the Friendly Hotel. Despite little annoyances, staff went to an awful lot of effort to sort problems out quickly. The main thing we were drawn to is a new concept the brothers are trying to introduce: employing the services of good street motorbike guides and helping to introduce their guests to a side of Hue you don't get to see without insider help. The street food recommendations they gave us were excellent, as is the new Italian restaurant Risotto opposite. They also have three-bed mixed dorms which are a little too cosy unless you are bunking up with friends and be warned that the pool listed under facilities is a table, not swimming!
