Mid-priced and luxury hotels in downtown Hue are nearly full for the three-day Hung Kings weekend.

This year, the commemoration of the Hung Kings, the mythical founders of the nation, falls on Sunday (April 10), which means people have three days off.

The VnExpress Marathon Hue, a major sporting and tourism event that has attracted nearly 4,000 runners, will take place this Sunday.

A survey by VnExpress found that mid-range and upscale hotels in the city center are nearly full, and visitors are now stuck only with hotels or homestays in other neighborhoods.

On two major booking sites, Booking.com and Agoda, 70% of accommodation establishments in Hue are fully booked between April 7 and 11.

The four and five star hotels are comprehensive and popular resorts like Vedana Lagoon Wellness Resort & Spa, Ancient Hue Garden Houses, Alba Spa Hotel, Pilgrimage Village Boutique Resort & Spa and Century Riverside Hue Hotel also reported that there was no no rooms April 9-11.

High-end hotels and resorts with rooms costing nearly 10 million VND ($437) per night are nearly full.

On Booking.com, three-star hotels costing between VND 1 and 3 million are booked at 94% capacity.

Ngoc Han, a receptionist at Midtown Hotel Hue on Doi Cung Street, said the hotel had hired more staff but everyone would still have to work overtime to serve guests from April 7.

“This is the first time that hotels in Hue are full after almost two years.”

Plane tickets from Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi to Hue cost 5-7 million VND ($219-306), three times the normal price, and flights are nearly sold out between April 8 and 11.

Hue, seat of the Nguyen Dynasty, the last ruling royal family in Vietnam, is famous for its royal tombs, ancient palaces and pagodas which attract millions of visitors every year.
