Beautiful Art Deco style hotel which retains all the charm of a bygone era. It really adds to the sense of history of this town. When u enter the hotel, u get an instant sense of serenity from the hustle and bustle outside. The staff are exceptional, knowledgable and friendly. Had a deluxe room on the top floor and the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

La Residence is a delightful, rejuvenated art deco confection overlooking the Perfume River towards the old citadel of Hue. It was the former French Governor's residence and has been restored and sympathetically extended to make a charming hotel. Our room (207) had a terrace looking towards the river and was very comfortable. The bathroom was fine, once one had mastered...

We arrived here after a bad experience at another hotel in town. This place was more expensive, but it was worth the money. We had a great time. Pool was nice. Room was fine. My understanding is the hotels in Hue are not great. This place was not the best ever, but it was certainly adequate for our needs.

We stayed for 2 nights in a deluxe river view room and took advantage of the many services and facilities that the hotel offers. While it's not perfect, it's close. Location: The hotel is located away from the tourist area in the northeast, which is good and bad. It's good in that it's quiet and away from the souvenir shops...

What a fabulous place if you are an Art Deco fan as I am! The hotel is kept beautifully and upgraded sympathetically. The site is on the river with lovely views over the water and breeze by the pool. Quiet and peaceful. Well run though a bit pushy with extras and not cheap. Worth it though. We could have stayed...

Compared to elsewhere in Vietnam this is definitely Western prices... but if you want a treat, this is the place to go. Old world colonial style with all the luxury of modern service, lovely pool and delightful groups. An oasis in the city!

This hotel is located on the river and has a lovely pool area overlooking the water. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The breakfast room is nice with a lot of choice.
