Arriving in Hue after a four hour ride from Hoi An I hopped on one of the many motorcycle taxis which surrounded our bus when it arrived. The driver passed the hotel twice before we found it - it's down an alley and while there is a sign on the main street it's not particularly prominent.
Having "splurged" for a $25 river view - and by the way the river you see is NOT the Perfume but a tributary, but - hey! - it's still water - I was directed to my fifth floor room which was large, had a great double bed, TV and good shower.
My three night stay was a tad eerie in that I only saw one other guest at breakfast the whole time I was there. Eggs are cooked to order at breakfast.
You're a five minute walk from Le Loi - the main drag - and there are plenty of shops and restaurants in the neighborhood. The staff was particularly pleasant and efficient. They arranged a motorcycle tour - and by the way motorcycle tours are the BEST way to see Vietnam - for me to the tombs of the Emperors and The Citadel. The driver showed up on time, was knowledgeable and careful. They also picked up a train ticket to Hanoi for me at a charge of 10% of the ticket price which worked out to be about what it would cost me for a moto taxi to the station and back.
All in all a very pleasant stay.
