La Residence Hotel & Spa

AZERAI — La Residence Hue

Ideally located opposite the Imperial Palace, along the quiet banks of the Perfume River, the hotel boasts outstanding views of both the Ancient Citadel and the Forbidden City. It was built around the renovated 1910 Art Deco 'Residence Superieure de L'Annan'. At that time, it was the administrative center of the French rule in central Vietnam, during the colonial era. The hotel has an Art Deco-inspired design of the 1920s and 1950s.

The rooms have every modern convenience, and some have private balconies. It is definitely worth opting for a room offering a river view; however, these are limited and extremely popular.

The hotel has a full range of amenities, including a riverside restaurant 'Le Parfum', serving creative Asian, Vietnamese and European flavors, an outdoor saltwater swimming pool and an extensive spa offering a complete range of treatments.

Rooms

There are six different categories of room. The Superior and Superior River Room are very similar in finish and size but the views are differing. The same goes for the Deluxe and the Deluxe River. These are bigger than the Superior options and have a private living area. The Deluxe Colonial rooms are in a different style as they are located in the old governors’ residence, they do not have a private balcony or terrace. There are three different suite options too – the Colonial Junior suite, the Colonial suite and the Resident suite. These are much bigger and have differing view options.

Location

The hotel is located close to the main tourist attractions of Hue and a number of riverside parks, which make for a lovely stroll. For those looking to venture outside the hotel complex in the evening, you might want to arrange a taxi with the helpful staff at the front desk as it can take around half an hour to walk to the where the restaurants are.
