This friendly, family-run guesthouse is a five minute walk from the train station, on Hue’s south bank, and has well-priced rooms that are clean, comfortable and of a decent size. Minh Quang offers more than most Vietnamese guesthouses in this price range: air-con, fridges, hot showers, cable TV and WiFi in some rooms, or the lobby. The peaceful location is far enough from Hue’s backpacker ghetto to avoid going there at all, though the walk to the citadel takes at least twenty minutes. The family can prepare egg baguette breakfasts and Vietnamese coffee and, sometimes, bicycles – but unless you speak Vietnamese, you’ll have to get by with sign language.
Cost: US$10 for a double room with en suite bathroom, air-con, cable TV and fridge.
Finding it: 16 ð phan chu trinh, South bank, five minutes east of the train station. (See map below.)
