Saigon Morin, Hue, Vietnam
Originally built in 1901, the hotel was the first of its kind in Central Vietnam and it still retains its French Colonial charm. With over a 100 years of history the Morin has played an active part in Vietnamese historical events, many of which are reflected in the fascinating black and white photographs displayed around the hotel.
After a significant renovation in 1997, the hotel has been restored to its former glory and now has a swimming pool and 183, spacious rooms with high ceilings, dark wooden floors and period furniture. The hotel has a choice of restaurants and bars offering European, Asian and Hue specialities. However its central location, overlooking the park and the Perfume River, make it extremely convenient to also explore the numerous restaurants options nearby should you wish to.
