La Residence Hue Hotel & Spa

Enchanting hotel next to Perfume River

This unique art deco style hotel provides a fantastic place to stay in the old Vietnamese capital of Hue. Located on the bank of The Perfume River which is alive with activity throughout the day.With expansive and beautifully maintained frangipani scented gardens – this is the perfect place to relax in a tranquil setting after a busy day sightseeing in the city.

The former French governor's grand 1930s residence is just a 20-minute walk to the Imperial Citadel and a 10-minute drive to the imposing Tu Duc Tomb – both must-see sights when in Hue.

The rooms are beautifully light and airy and most have views across the river. Facilities include an enormous outdoor swimming pool, spa and many dining options. Unique gastronomic experiences can be arranged for guests who are keen to explore Vietnamese cuisine and delicacies, such as cooking classes, dinner cruises, and the very popular Governors Colonial Dinner.

Wonderful hotel and service

Auckland Central, New Zealand

This updated hotel retains the wonderful Art Deco features from the time when it was the residence of the French Governor. Lovely furnishings and lamps in public areas. Very nice rooms and comfortable beds. What stands out is impeccable service from well trained staff who speak excellent English

Fantastic hotel

I arrived at Le Residence with my family as part of a touring trip organised by Audley Travel. We stayed for 3 nights. The hotel and its location are superb. The pool overlooking the dragon boats on the Perfume River. Food and service excellent. Friendly and attentive staff especially Tung the pool bar guy. The spa treatments were the best I have experienced - amazing Thai massage and excellent manicure and pedicure.
