La Residence Hotel & Spa
La Residence Hotel & Spa is really the only place to stay if you visit Hue! This charming boutique hotel, the former residence of the French Colonial governor, has been restored and refashioned and oozes 1930's Art Deco elegance. Its riverside location, a stroll from central Hue simply adds to its appeal.
The 122 rooms and suites are split between the original Colonial building and the New Wings (built in 2005) and combine dark woods and Vietnamese silks with art deco touches. Upgrade to a Deluxe Riverview Room for extra space and views of the Perfume River. The Colonial Suites are particularly spacious and glamorous with four-poster beds and large balconies.
Explore Hue on a bicycle, visit the Imperial Citadel by cyclo, or take a cruise along the Perfume River, before returning to the hotel and relaxing by the outdoor swimming pool. Don't leave without visiting Le Spa. The Vietnamese Rice Wine & Ginger Bath is ideal for unwinding and revitalisation following a busy day sightseeing.
There are a variety of places to eat in Hue but if you choose to dine at La Residence, Le Parfum restaurant serves delicious French and Asian fusion dishes in elegant Art Deco surroundings. Highly recommended are the sharing dishes from the "Vietnamese Discovery" menu
