      Beautiful Colonial Style Hotel

      We loved our stay at the Morin. The rooms are huge with high ceilings and comfortably appointed. The grounds have a tropical appearance where outdoor dining is available. Location is also great, just steps away from the Perfume River. We would certainly recommend it and would definitely stay there again should we return.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Saigon Morin Hue

      Very good Hotel, Great Location


      If you are use to staying in 5 star hotels and demand 5 star service, you may be a little disappointed in this hotel, but it would be your issue and not that of the hotel. Hue is not a large town, but a wonderful place to visit. This is an older hotel that is just fine for 97% of the people who stay there.

      Old French décor is great, especially since the hotel is 100 years old. The rooms are big and the furniture and bathrooms were more than sufficient. May not be the newest Sofitel, Grand Hyatt or Conrad on the marketplace, but this is Hue and not Hong Kong.

      Service was very good and breakfast was more than sufficient. Staff was very helpful and nice. I would not hesitate to stay here again or tell my friends to stay here. I think the location is the best there is in Hue.

      Mediocre Morin


      The old hotel has a pleasent exterior but was disapointing on the inside dispite the fact that our room was enormous and the bed bigger than a king size! What let the hotel down was its general decor, the rooms seemed drab and the stuck on paper decor on mirrors and doors did not help, seemed cheap and cheerful. Breakfast which we had outside in the attractive large courtyard lacked appeal due to the small choice. Perhaps we had been spoilt by our other hotels in Vietnam. This could be a great hotel if refurbished and someone had a quiet word in the chefs ear.

      Riding on old glory


      It is an old hotel with a great location and lots of history.

      THe rooms are huge but some need rennovation, ours did not. Our TV blew up and was replaced in 10 minutes.

      The pool is basic and the buffet for breakfast is acceptable.

      The hotel is overpriced and the one restaurant inside had porr quality food but great kids ate and watched mice running back and forth.

      It is probably the only acceptable show in town so they seem to still be able to get their price. There are unfortunately not many good restaurants around the hotel.

      Great location


      The other reviews on this hotel were varied and I was a tad apprehensive when booking it. However, it was one of the best hotels we stayed in when travelling in Vietnam. The room was huge and beautifully appointed and the marble bathroom was large with a separate tub and shower. Breakfast was served outside in a lovely inner courtyard and there was plenty of choice. The only slight issue was the size of the pool - it's on the small side. Overall, a great hotel with a real historical feel which is close to all the sites and a number of restuarants and bars (we booked the hotel (a deluxe room) through Direct Rooms whose website pictures do the hotel no justice but they provided a fast efficient booking service and I would recommend them).

      True colonial style


      This is a true colonial style hotel, with lots of charm.

      OK, so it has its warts - the doors to the cupboards and bathroom were warped, and the bathroom isn't the most modern, but the room itself was beautiful.

      Dinner was served outside in the courtyard - one of the best meals we had, candelight and traditional music. Lovely.

      Not the Best


      I stayed at the Saigon Morin Hotel in March 2005 for one night, and for me that was enough. I was only impressed by the size of the rooms, which was in fact very large. The hotel needs to update it's furniture/decorations etc. We ate breakfast at a nice outdoor buffet, which was very beautiful and very close to the pool. The buffet unfortunately did not have very many food choices. We arrived very late at night so we were very eager to get our suitcases to go to bed, but they took a very long time to be sent upstairs. Overall the hotel didn't blow me away but it was absolutely fine.

      Some Good/some not so good


      The rooms were large and comfortable. That's really all the good I can muster for this old hotel. The public spaces (lobby, business center etc) were all not airconditioned with temps at or near 100 degrees F. during the day. The restaurant and bar were pathetic and the staff seemed nice but totally disinterested. We won't return.

      The most beautiful hotel!


      I've traveled much these past few years and have stayed at numerous fancy hotels and resorts, but I have to say the Morin Hotel in Hue is my most favorite. It's beautiful and historical! The breakfast buffet was to die for! I don't want to stay anywhere else when I'm Hue! And that says a lot!

      Would not recommed the Morin


      We were not thrilled with the Morin. The rooms are overpriced and in need of revovations. Our room had a musty smell. We paid the same price to stay at the Caravelle in Ho Chi Minh City ($95) and it was a thousand times better than the Morin. I agree that the exterior of the Morin is charming, the staff is friendly, and the location is good. However, for $60-65 you could stay at the Century Riverside - it's not as pleasing from the outside, but seems nicer than the Morin from the inside, has better views of the river, and an equally good location.

      A classic in Vietnam


      We traveled throughout Vietnam in June, 2004, and we still rank the Saigon Morin as one of our favorite hotels. It has the old-world French charm, reminescent of the early days of Vietnam. The corridors are lined with pictures of its past. The rooms are exquisite; we occupied a second floor room with balcony directly overlooking the Perfume River. The staff was, as we found throughout Vietnam, extremely cordial, and wanting to please. The only drawback that we found was the lack of air-conditioning in the lobby and in the restaurant. The rooms were quite cool, but when it is 100 degrees outside, airconditioning in the lobby makes a big difference. The staff, did however, bring in an "industrial size fan" which kept us comfortable during a wonderful, and reasonably priced dinner.

      First off, we went to a factory/shop where they make/sell statues. A huge variety of stock, from major statues in marble to little pieces of jewellery. $7500 for a life size statue, including shipping. However my cynical mind couldn't get round the fact that there was one guy …

After around 200 steps up and 200 down and another 300 inside hunting for "animals you see with your imagination"; we stop for some amazing photo ops before heading back to our boat to be fed once again after checking out.
