The accommodation offer in Hue is quite varied. New luxury hotels are under construction. Most of the places to stay are in downtown Hue, southeast of the river.
If you have not booked in advance, you will easily find a room, unless you come during the high season (Summer and Vietnam's New Year).
In my case, I did not have a reservation, but this was not a problem. A travel Agent I met on the train from Hanoi offered rooms in different hotels in central Hue. He wrote my name on a paper. When I got to Hue Train Station, a local guide was waiting for me. I got on a mini bus, and I was brought to the specified hotel. There was no compromise, but I liked the place, so I opted for staying there.
