“Simply the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2007

Situated on the river and a short walk from town, this hotel was a former French Governor’s residence in the 1930’s. It is now a stylish hotel, sympathetically restored and extended in Art Deco style and piped music to match. The whole place is immaculately clean, and the staff are friendly but inobtrusive. There is a large swimming pool in beautifully maintained gardens overlooking the Perfume River, opposite the Citadel. The breakfasts and dinners were excellent, however a traditional Vietnamese drip coffee was lacking. There are computers available to guests any time. You must book ahead and it is usually full of tour groups.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for its location and ambience – one of the best in Vietnam.

Stayed March 2007

Beautiful hotel. Full of character as used to be French Governers residence. The room was lovely and had really good quality toiletries. We only stayed here 1 night but wished it had been longer. The tour manager told us that if we only ate in one hotel restaurant during our tour to make it this one as it was so good. He was completely right. The service was impeccable and the meal was absolutely fantastic. The chef who was German even came out later on to speak to guests to ask what they thought of the food. We couldn't fault it or the service. The restaurant is called Hemisphere. the pool area was also very good even though we just had one afternoon to enjoy it and some of the tour had spa treatments which they were full of praise for. All in all we had a brilliant stay.

Just returned from Vietnam...stayed in this beautiful hotel for 2 nights...wish it had been longer. We had a room on top floor (only 3 floors) overlooking the pool and river. Large balcony to sit on and watch the daily activities on the river. The room was excellent , bed extremely comfortable. Dining in the restaurant was one of the best dining experiences I have had in a long time. The staff at this hotel were the nicest we came across in Vietnam very helpful . The manager was present at breakfast and dinner always checking that guest were happy. Lovely pool, snack bar . The hotel travel desk organised a tour for us on perfume river by boat - 2-3hrs and the private car back with more sightseeing. All for US$60 for 3 of us...excellent value. Would only stay at this hotel if in Hue again.

Simply a beautiful hotel. We booked a riverside room which I would reccomend as the views are amazing. The main building is the old governors house and very art deco. There are 2 new wings that contain the majority of the bedrooms and these have been done in a similar fashion.
The pool area is beautiful - right on the banks of the Perfume River and overlooking the Citadel. Staff are attentive and delightful.
Not in the main drag of Hue but just a short cyclo ride which is a lovely way to end an evening eating in the local restaurants.
I first went to Hue 15 years ago and this hotel just makes the place extra special.
We got a fantastic rate through a Hanoi travel agent ($110 all in) which is great compared to the rack rate of $250!
