Hanoi to Hue Destination Reviews

All fine - and outstanding help from the woman in charge at Hotel Mango in Hanoi, who went out of her way to help me recover a phone I’d lost on the way. (Thank you so much again for this help.) Having such an excellent speaker of English and communicator in general is hugely helpful.
Train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Jun 23, 2024
It was nothing special, quite cramped and the rooms were fairly hot. Only snacks provided, personally I would go by bus or air instead.
Train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, May 13, 2024
The bus was over an hour late on departure and the drop off was on the outskirts of Hue and not in the city where we would have a few steps to accommodation. If we wouldn't recieve the email with the licence plate number we would have missed the bus. And also the staff was ignoring us for the first part, even when we showed the voucher. We also had to show the email with the licence plate. They even tried to make us only take 2 beds. As we are a family of 3, but we booked and payed for 3 pax so they couldn't do nothing regarding that. And at the next stop they tried it with another group of 3 pax... The driver that drove the first part, was driving too agressive and they smoked, so the smoke was all over the bus. The comfort was ok, but with the agressive driving it all got lost as I was all over my space.
Bus VIP Luxury 22, Duc Duong Bus, May 9, 2024
Generally pleasant. Though arrived 20 minutes late due to holiday traffic and the pick up location was quite dirty. Only 1 out if the 3 usb charging ports were working
Bus VIP 20, Duc Duong Bus, May 1, 2024
Carriage, compartment and definitely the toilet had seen better days. "VIP"? Not one bit.
Train #SE3 VIP Sleeper 4x, NewLivitrans Express (SONG HONG RAILWAY TOURIST SERVICES COMPANY LIMITED), Apr 17, 2024
Unfriendly bus driver who screamed at us and touched us, even we were awake already. The bus was dirty and smelled like smoke.
Bus VIP 20, Vietnam Luxury Travel, Apr 4, 2024
This is a really good option for travelling from Hanoi to Hue, it was well organised and pretty comfortable for a train bed! There was a good selection of free things in the room and the food cart came round pretty regularly. It was on time and the toilets were clean, give it a go!
Train #SE19 VIP Sleeper 4x, Laman Express, Apr 3, 2024
One guy contacted me through WhatsApp and they picked me up from my hotel and dropp me off in my hotel too. Thanks very much!
Bus VIP Sleeper 34, Luxury Van Limousine (Luxury Van Limousine), Mar 25, 2024
Could’ve been worse. Any 14h train ride I feel wouldn't be ideal, especially when you’re on the top bunk and you can barely see out the window. The beds weren’t soft beds (by Vietnam standards anyway) they just felt like hard mats but was able to get sleep anyway. Toilets were filthy. Make sure you bring your own toilet paper. Staff weren’t that helpful helping you board like they say they would but they do alert you when it’s your stop. Overall, a very average experience and definitely the maximum amount of time I would take the train.
Train #SE7 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Mar 23, 2024
Basic comfort And be careful with suitcases or bags We found one of our bags torn in two layers + a T-shirt inside. I'm waiting for customer support to get back to us, and I hope they'll compensate me.
