Travel Blogs from Hue
After returning to Hanoi to catch a train south we discovered that there had been a mix up with our train ticket. We had emailed 'Zoom' - the charismatic hotel assistant from the Little Diamond Hotel to book our train ticket to Hue as we didn't really trust the man in Cat Ba. As it turned out, there was a mix up and although we had paid online for …
We arrived in Hue, hot, sweaty and generally in a bad mood ready to moan to anyone who would listen about our nightmare train journey. As it was our bad moods were lifted immediately as we arrived at our hotel. We booked The Orchid as it had more amazing reviews on trip advisor than we had ever seen and we were quickly going to see why.
Today started in a happy way, being International Women's Day in Vietnam they really celebrate. flowers and every one wishing you a happy day. It was lovely over breakfast seeing listening to the staff welcoming all the women with a greeting made everybody smile.
Mr Tung our driver arrived right on 7.30am and we were off on our DMZ tour. …
We got on the train in Hanoi. To our surprise, most of the other passengers seemed to be tourists too. Entering the cabins we noticed that it was very roomy, with four big bunks in each cabin and plenty of space between them. As usual, the soft in soft sleeper is more of a relative term, consisting of a thin mattress on a hopefully sturdy wooden …
Hello again dear reader, tis I, your tour correspondent back on the
blogs again updating you about another leg of our trip. This is
actually a bit of a controversial one for Ratty and I as it is the
first time that our opinions have really differed about a place we have
visited. Ratty claims that she liked Hue (pronounced Hway - but …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We stayed for three nights at this hotel as part of our tour of Vietnam. This was the best hotel we stayed at for the money. We received five star treatment. The room ( we opted for deluxe) was absolutely fantastic - large bed, three windows, desk computer TV, DVD (a large selection of movies available free to guests), minibar, silk kimonos, slippers and complimentary fruit each day - like a honeymoon suite. To add to this, the breakfast was phenomenal and staff could not have been more helpful in arranging both our pick up and onward transit. In fact, a member of staff waited at the train station in the rain at night for over an hour to meet our late-arrival train from Hanoi. In all respects - service, facilities, amenities and going the extra mile this hotel far exceeded our expectations. They couldn't have done more.

We stayed in the honeymoon suite and it was great! A total experience and we were treated so well from the minute that we arrived, fresh fruit and a drink was much appreciated. The staff were polite and enthusiastic and nothing was too much trouble, when we mentioned it was our anniversary they delivered flowers and a cake to the room, it was amazing. Great breakfast, don't hesitate in staying here!

Historical Traveler Reviews ORCHID HOTEL Hue
5* Service & Accomodation
Where to begin! The staff and service is at a 5* level. They picked us up at the bus station, had welcomed drinks in the reception and carried our bags to our rooms - wow such unexpected and unncessary service for just $30USD a night.
The room came with a DVD player, hair dryer, nice duvet and you could borrow as many DVD's as you wanted for free. The free internet was also very much appreciated.
The staff and manager were extremely friendly and helpful - they got us (2) scooters for our entire stay - fantastic.
We stayed at the Orchid Hotel for 2 nights in January 2007. This is a fantastic hotel and I would recommend it for anyone who is staying in Hue. The location is really good, the breakfast was excellent and the staff were really helpful. The rooms are really nice and are spotless.
We were extremely happy with this hotel - it was much much better than other hotels that we have stayed in for around the same price.
Ci è piaciuto molto
Č stato un albergo favoloso. Il servizio offerto dal personale č stato da cinque stelle. Le camere sono ampie, ben arredate e molto, molto pulite. La colazione compresa č un buffet semplice. Il collegamento a internet č gratuito e relativamente veloce. Ottima posizione rispetto ai ristoranti. Consigliamo soprattutto il Club Garden girato l'angolo - chiedete informazioni al personale dell'albergo. Ci č dispiaciuto non rimanere piů a lungo.
Loved this Hotel
This was a fabulous hotel. We had five star service from the staff. The rooms are spacious, beautifully appointed and very very clean. The breakfast included is a simple buffet. Free and relatively fast internet service.
Great location to restaurants. We especially recommend the Club Garden restaurant around the corner - ask the hotel staff. We were sorry we weren't staying longer.
A Gem of a Place
I agree with all the glowing comments on this great hotel.
In addition to the very good facilities, Chi plays a big part in making this place such a success. She seems to be the 'second in command'. We met the manager for a few minutes and gained the impression that he too had a good eye for detail. They both make a very good team and this is, perhaps, the secret of the success of this place.
We arrived at about 8 a.m. on the Hanoi to Hue 6.30 flight. We were told that our room would not be available until late morning and Chi suggested that we take the full day City Tour by mini bus and boat leaving at about 9 a.m. She booked this, put our bags in safe storage and gave us a complimentary breakfast.
Best Budget hotel.........
Unfortunately one of their rooms had a plumbing problem and we stayed in another local hotel until the problem was rectified and that is where the problems finished.
The difference was phenomenal when we stayed their on the 2nd night. The service, decor and nice little touches make this hotel standout above all the other budget mid range hotels. The CD and DVD library are one of those nice touches at this level of hotel.
This is not your Hilton and nor does it pretend to be. It is however a very clean, well kept and well serviced hotel.
Great place to stay: excellent
This hotel is superb. The friendly staff is always there to help and advice you. The room we had was very clean and luxureous. It serves a very nice breakfast buffet with all different kind of things (Vietnam food, western food, fruit). You can borrow free DVD-movies at the reception desk and watch them in your room.
We can recommend this hotel to anyone. You don't have to have any doubt whether this is a good place or not: this is a very good place to stay in Hue.
We had 2 nights in Hue, after traveling a long time on an overnight train. We were blown away by the excellent and personal service. For the 3 star price, we received 5 star treatment from start to finish. Personable and friendly staff top an already fantastic experience. We would easily, happily, and readily recommend a stay at this hotel.
Just the luxury we needed
We had two nights in Hue within our month travelling around Vietnam. A friend we made on our travels had recommended this hotel and we are so glad we took their advice and cancelled the reservations we had at another establishment and rocked up to the Orchid.
Chi and all the staff were fantastic. The bedroom was luxury for two backpackers and the cost included a great breakfast and the total cost all fit in our budget.
We didn't find Hue as interesting as we thought we would however, The Orchid Hotel is a fantastic place to rest your head & body and base yourself to do a day trip up to the DMZ.
Thanks again and we will be recommending this hotel to all our Aussie friends who are travelling to Vietnam in the near future.
Me senti como en casa...o mejor!!!
Me llamo Rosa. Acabo de llegar de Vietnam, maravilloso, y desde luego el hotel Orchid...GENIAL!! No solo su equipo que son encantadores y te hacen sentir como en casa, sino todo lo demas: las instalaciones, el desayuno, etc...TODO!!
Además, nos facilitaron todo al máximo, nos dejamos en otro hotel de Hanoi un montón de ropa y el personal de Ochid se encargó de que a los 2 dias toda nuestra ropa (que dabamos por perdida), llegara a nuestras manos. MUCHAS GRACIAS POR TODO.
