The imperial city of Hue offers a lot in the way of accommodation options. But for travelers who prefer to find their beds with the help of Airbnb, it can be quite painful to sift through the clutter of hotel and guest houses listings. We’ve searched and complied this list of the coolest and best airbnb in Hue just for you.

1. Pool Family House with kitchenette

Possibly the embodiment of a perfect family abode, this villa is absolutely stunning! ‘Nestled on the shore of a peaceful lagoon’, with spectacular views across one of the largest lagoons in Southeast Asia, blends in the right amount of its natural surrounding with the services, comforts and interiors of a 5 star resort. It is after all one of the signature houses on offer from the Vedana Lagoon Resort and Spa which comes with its own swimming pool, a large patio and 2 large rooms to comfortable accommodate 4. The only downside might be that the villa is located quite a distance from the main city center of Hue.

While the price tag might be daunting at $304 a night, the promise of an absolutely relaxed holiday might make it worth while.


2. Appartement Vu Tri Vien

This listing, offered by host Quynh and her family is one of those gems on Airbnb where you have the opportunity to interact with local hosts who are genuinely interested to host travelers. Situated at the heart of the citadel and a stones throw away from the imperial city, it is perfectly located to explore the rest of Hue without being too much in the center of the tourist bubble. This is one of the more authentic Airbnb options in Hue where hotels and guest houses have inundated the Airbnb pages with their own listings.

The host offers this apartment either as a full 5 bedroom option that accommodates 12 for $150 ($12.50 per person) or as a private room option which can accommodate 5 for $60 a night.

3. Riverfront house in the city center

This centrally located waterfront house is big value for your money. At just $17, you get a large private room that accommodates 3, a private balcony overlooking the river and all the modern amenities (cable tv, wifi, airconditioner). At just $6 per person, this Airbnb listing is a steal and why wouldn’t it be. Its located well, your private room comes with a private balcony overlooking a river, the host has tremendous reviews and it’s all for just $17. Its really a nobrainer.


4. Honeymoon Bungalow

This truly delightful listing offered by Pilgrimage Village boutique resort is located in the serene countryside village 30 mins from the Hue Airport. Although some might find this place a bit off located, if you are looking for day trips into the city and return back to the comforts and luxuries off a resort, there is no better option. The warm natural surroundings, the peace of the countryside and the comforts of a resort combine to give this place a stunning atmosphere.

All that for $120 a night is not too bad if such a retreat is what you’re after.

5. Green Garden Villa-1 deluxe room

This is another of those listings which are rare to find nowadays. Managed by Nu and Kevin, your stay here promises a lot of local interactions with the hosts. Nu offers to cook guests a traditional Hue meal for a additional fee, which might be an interesting experience to get up close and personal to a typical local meal prepared in a household setting and not in a restaurant.

The house itself features traditional Vietnamese elements in a simple house with comfortable bedding and all the basic necessities. Each night also comes with a complimentary breakfast serving. You can reach all the major attractions within 15 mins from the house. The host also offers bicycles for rent if you’d rather explore the city on two wheels.
