We spent five leisurely days here. We are jaded international travelers, and this place exceeded our expectations. We have decided to return annually just to experience it again. The art deco has been tastefully restored, the staff have just the right touch of personal service and care where you feel you are a personal guest. The food and beverage is superlative - presentation, taste, freshness, service. Dinner at La Parfum is fine dining. The Vietnamese cuisine is authentic and delicious. The swimming pool size, location, view, and ambiance is stunning. The location is perfect - away from the touristy town center, near to a neighborhood of old academies and mansions of historical significance. We felt we were like guests of the old French Resident Superieur which this building was the former residence of. As a smaller boutique hotel, one never felt crowded or jostled. We cannot say enough good things about this visit. For the discerning traveler, this is the place to stay in Hue. A note: we booked a suite with a terrace, which made the stay much more enjoyable, and keep in mind our stay was relatively long. Pay attention to the room you book and the length of your stay - we recommend some of the historical rooms and suites - it is worth the extra cost and experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Perfume River

We arrived at this hotel tired and exhausted after an overnight train from Hanoi. We had told them in advance that it was our honeymoon and from the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. We were allowed to check in at 10am (which allowed us to go back to bed for a little sleep), they welcomed us with iced tea and a refreshing cold flannel and we were upgraded to a room with a view of the Perfume River. We were also presented with a lovely desert in a room later that evening. We were given some vouchers as an apology for the renovation works going on (which didn’t affect us one bit) so we had a free lunch in their restaurant before heading out to the Imperial City. We enjoyed the hotel and lunch so much that we decided to spend the afternoon relaxing by the pool and then had dinner in the hotel restaurant which was very nice. Breakfast was delicious too. We wished we could have stayed longer than one night!

We were enchanted with our stay in la residence. We have had the feeling to stay in a unique place! The historical building is so beautiful and very well renovated . The staff is extremely helpful, nice and very professional. The pool and the view on the perfume river is a must. The restaurant is the best we have tried during our stay in Viêt Nam . The manager arnaud was very nice and friendly .

We ate here twice for dinner. The service and food was outstanding. The trio of Vietnamese soup
Really delicious as was the pork belly, duck , snapper , pizza and pumpkin soup ! Desserts were next level so pretty and delicate to eat.
The staff are simply beautiful and really care that you have a wonderful experience. A highlight of our trip to Hue.
Cheers

We stayed in Hue for 2 nights staying in a suite on the 1st floor. The hotel is charming and nicely decorated fitting wiith its style. There were renovations going on, we were forewarned, but it also did not affect our stay. Breakfast service was very good and overall we found the staff service exemplary. The hotel is central, on the river across from the Imperial Citadel. They assisted in arranging a boat and taxi your to the tombs which I would recommend. Overall- very good and we are likely to return.
