Boutique hotel in a quiet location
Joseph's Hotel is not a budget option but offers 10 simply decorated, comfortable rooms in a quiet location on Au Trieu St, near the cathedral and away from the hectic pace of central Old Quarter.
It's easy to miss as their signage is simply the hotel name etched on the glass front doors, so look out for a glass-fronted building about halfway down the street on the cathedral side. Although it's not quite as fresh and new as when we last visited, just after opening, it's been well maintained, with tastefully decorated rooms, wooden floors and springy beds decked in quality white linen. Bathrooms are compact but have a shower cubicle. Superior rooms are of similar quality to the deluxe, but slightly smaller. Breakfast is served in a clean and bright area at the back of the ground floor; their chef will freshly prepare eggs, bacon and sausages or, if preferred, pho. Definitely worth a look.
