Lovely building with French colonial architecture. The staff were very friendly and were super helpful in organising everything from a tour, to dinner, to onward transport. Pool, bar and restaurant facilities are all very nice. It is walk-able to the city centre and the Imperial City as well.

Fabulous hotel in a great central location. Service was excellent and the ambience wasn't overwhelming. Our room faced the karaoke bar across the road and someone had been imbibing too much and thought they were a good singer - but that stopped at 10pm! We just laughed.

One of the hotels we used on our honeymoon! They were fantastic. Totally spoilt us! Hotel is amazing! Old colonial original building (modern-ish annex) with all the original decor. Staff could not do more for us (or any other cistomer to be fair) Food top notch and our room was amazing!

Some hotels try so hard to be elegant they end up being stuffy. Others try so hard to be fun they end up being a nuisance. In my opinion Hue is one of the most interesting cities in Vietnam and if your pocket book will allow, La Residence is the only interesting place to stay. It has a 1930's elegance...

We stayed at La Residence for three nights in early January 2017. With the main wing sited in the former French colonial governor's mansion, one can imagine happenings in an earlier time. Perhaps Annam's last emperor, Bao Dai, enjoyed an aperitif with la gouverneur on the terrace overlooking the Perfume River. The location is good yet quiet. We only had...

Unusually based on our experience in the other hotels we stayed at in Indochina, the welcome was lacking. We arrived with our Guide and were kept waiting for someone to deal with us — longest on our entire trip. The Manager spoke to us the next day to apologise and seemed to be trying to blame our Guide, saying the...

We stayed here originally four years ago as part of an organised tour and decided then we had to return. This trip we were a family group including two young grandchildren.
