Hotel Name: Sunny A Hotel.
Address: 17/34 Nguyen Tri Phuong Street, Hue, Thua Thien Hue, Vietnam.
I stayed at the Sunny A Hotel in Hue, Vietnam. I booked online at the rate of $15.36 USD per night, and I booked it for its price and location in Hue. My room was a Standard Double, which has a private bathroom.
Sunny A Hotel is in the alley of 34 Nguyen Tri Phuong, which is one of the best places to stay in Hue on a budget. This alley is a mini backpacker area, with lots of cheap guesthouses. Unlike the main backpacker street of Pham Ngu Lau, this lane isn’t noisy.
I am familiar with this alley as I remember it from the first time I visited Hue. When booking a room in an alley like this (or any Vietnamese hotel for that matter) I always make sure to check that the room has a window. The buildings are often skinny and built against each other, so there are rooms with no windows. I know some people who like no windows so they can sleep. I prefer to see the outside.
The hotel lobby doubles as a parking area for motorbikes, which is totally normal in Vietnam. After a friendly check in I went to my room.
The building is skinny at the alley entrance, but there is more to this building at the back. There was an open balcony like a motel, so each room had access to open air.
My room was high enough to have a view of something other than an alleyway. The bed was comfortable as well.
The room had a fan and air-conditioning unit, which I like when hotels give you the option. A/C is needed in Hue in June, but a fan at night is a good alternative.
A little chair set in the room, but they weren’t suitable for working from. There is free wifi at the hotel, and the reception was strong enough in my room.
There was no problem with the bathroom or hot water. I liked how there was enough room around the sink.
There was no breakfast service here at the time of my visit, so I went to another place in the same alley.
