Hien Guest House

Hidden away spot, mixed value

What we say: 3 stars

Hidden down the end of a tucked away alley, Hien Guesthouse now has two properties, Hien Guesthouse and Hien 2 Guesthouse. The former has rooms with share bathroom only, while the newer has rooms with private bathroom. Overall the rooms are very clean and well looked after, but the pricier rooms do not represent great value. A few points clouded our stay here. The proprietor, while a friendly and polite English-speaking man, went into an extremely hard sell on the floating market boat-trips before we had even got our bags to the room. Secondly, if you opt to stay in Hien 2, you need to lock a heavy shuttered door on leaving yourselves, and we were a bit surprised to find upon trying to get out the following morning a second padlock was on the door for which we had no key. While Hien isn't the only guesthouse that locks their guests in, it's a very poor and unsafe practice. Those points aside, the rooms are only a short walk from the riverfront area.
