Le Robinet Homestay

Putting the social in homestay

More on Hue

More of a guesthouse than a homestay, the curiously named Le Robinet welcomes with a smile and offers both smart private rooms and dormitory accommodation within the confines of Hue’s walled city.

Their business card reads “Get further away” and upon arrival here you will feel a world away from the more commercialised tourist district on the far bank of the Perfume River. Think shady laneways, limited traffic, and local residents just getting on with their day. Very close to the also very good Tam Family Homestay, this is an excellent part of the city to stay in.

The compound plays home to an original older building and a more modern two storey house which includes many of the rooms. Around this is a leafy and pleasant common area, with plenty of shade trees and a few spots scattered around to eat, drink, and relax in. Of the three homestays we tried in the old city, this was the most sociable with ample space to meet other travellers and chinwag with the staff and owners.

We were shown a smart private room (the dorm had been hired out by a single group when we swung through, so we were unable to see it) and we thought it was a comfortable affair with decent bedding, a small desk and plenty of light flowing in. Upstairs rooms would be quieter, so if you are a light sleeper, ask for an upstairs room. The location is excellent, and while they can assist with bicycle and scooter hire, the Imperial City is but a short walk away—as are numerous local eateries and cafes.
