Experience grandeur, opulence and style at the heart of a historic city
Step back in time with a stay at this art-deco colonial mansion on the banks of the Perfume River. Take tea on your balcony while Hue’s famed Imperial Citadel serves as a shimmering backdrop across the water. It’s the perfect place to combine elegant living with exceptional access to a historic treasure.
Originally built in 1930 as the French Governor’s official residence, a recent restoration has returned the hotel to its ravishing former glory. High ceilings and dark wood floors combine with luxurious furnishings to create a classic old-world ambience within the 122 rooms and suites. Ask for a room in the riverside wing for the best views.
But La Residence Hue isn’t just about the décor, there is plenty to keep you entertained too. Pick up a complimentary bike and venture out to explore the markets and pagodas. You can also cruise directly from the hotel by dragon boat to the Emperor’s tombs and mausoleums.
Once you’ve worked up an appetite, visit the hotel’s signature Le Parfum Restaurant for mouth-watering French-Vietnamese fusion dishes. From authentic Bun Bo Hue noodle soup to caramelised veal medallion with mushroom risotto, there are flavours to suit all tastes. The fragrant cuisine is perfectly complemented by ravishing river-views.
