Modest city hotel with a good location Jul 10, 2013
The Festival hotel is a modest tourist class hotel in the center of Hue. It's only 2 km from the lake and the tourist quarter.

The entire hotel has wicker furniture: in the lobby, the restaurant and in the rooms. It gives the place a nice colonial feel.

Upon entering we get an extremely sweet welcome drink, while our tour rep is gathering our keys. The lobby is in the main building. Then there is a courtyard with a small pool and the breakfast restaurant. In the rear building are all the bedrooms.

We get a room on the 5th floor. It's a small and modest room with pretty wicker furniture and chandeliers. Apart from the twin beds, there is a small table with two chairs, a desk with a TV and a minibar. Two bottles of water are complimentary.

There's WiFi in the room, but the signal is not too strong. So it takes a lot of patience to check mail. Using skype is out of the question.

In this room there are no coffee or tea facilities and no safe either, but bathrobes and slippers are for grabs. Luckily there is individually controlled airco too.

The bathroom is compact and has a bath tub annex shower. The water pressure is reasonable but the shower head is not too functional. It has a lot of chalk that blocks the water from coming out. A hair dryer is available and as in all Vietnamese hotels, there's a large selection of toiletries too.

Our room has a connecting door, which to my surprise is unlocked! luckily there are two other group members in the room next door, but otherwise it would have been tricky. On the downside, the rooms are not very sound proof. Not only is there a lot of noise coming from the street, we also hear what's going on in the room next door. The rooms have wooden floors and we very much hear the people walking in the room above us. Especially if they are wearing high heals. Also when they flush the toilet nearby, it sounds as if someone is emptying a bucket in our room.

Breakfast is served in the restaurant by the courtyard and has apart from the Asian buffet, a good selection of western items. On top of the usual stuff, there is French baguette (which needs to be put through the toaster to make it crispy), "la vache qui rit" cream cheese and even yogurt. What a luxury! Make sure you bring your breakfast coupon - it is checked by the door.

In my opinion, the Festival hotel is a modest but decent city hotel with a nice breakfast buffet. Too bad about the noisy rooms... Otherwise I would have rated the hotel much better.
