What we say:
Right across the alley from Cafe on Thu Wheels, the Phong Nha draws in a steady custom and is very popular with Japanese tourists. We can't say we were thrilled by the rooms we saw here -- they seemed a bit dank and airless. Also, badly lit. The over-eager staff were a bit of a turn-off, too -- we hear it's hard to leave this place without booking a motorbike tour at Cafe on Thu Wheels. Luckily, for most people, this works out well since they want to take the tour anyway, but on the whole, head to the Binh Duong down the alley.

I took an open tour bus to Hue from Hoi An. As soon as I got my back pack on, I was herded to this hotel by TWO of their overly enthusiastic, always smiling, always talking staffs. Everything seems fine upon inspecting the room so I decided to stay here without much hesitation. The room itself is clean and spacious. Although hidden from the road, the location here seems to be good as it is quite central and it is close enough to enjoy a romantic walk down the riverside at night.

The hotel itself isn't anything special. We paid the extra US$2 to get a balcony, simply for some more space! The staff are friendly enough, although didn't seem too impressed with us after we booked tours and bus tickets elsewhere. Our bed was really comfy and the rooms are really clean. Cafe on Thu Wheels is about two steps away and is amazing. I'd definitely recommend the motorcycle tour, its only 110 Dong and it's well worth it. You get taken off the beaten track, through the countryside and arrive at all the touristy places before the large groups on air-con buses. It's amazing!
