“Beautiful Boutiqe Hotel, Wonderful Service”
Reviewed June 12, 2007

We spent three nights in this hotel last fall. Soup to nuts this hotel was wonderful. Rooms were comparable to what you'd get at an upscale hotel like the Ritz or Four Seasons. The pool is gorgeous. Lobby is gorgeous. Service was great.... they set us up with a car w/ driver and a daytrip guide our Hue tours.. all in was well less than $100 for the day (and this was on the higher end by Vietnam standards) They also arranged a car to take us to Hoi An. Location on bank of Perfume River across from the Citadel is beautiful & getting downtown is a 5 min cab ride or 20 min walk.

Can't say enough about this hotel...and as always in Vietnam, the rates we got (I believe it was around $60-70/night) were unreal for this level of service.

Stayed at the La Residence for three nights at their Superior room on the 5th floor facing the beautiful gardens. The room we stayed at was on the small side, but it was just perfect for 2 people in my opinion. I really like the art deco design of the hotel, the modern salt-water swimming pool, and the reasonably priced good food at their restaurant. I love the river view from the restaurant everytime we have our meals. I also love the cookies (in a pretty box) that they put on our bed every evening (with a note card of sayings or quotes that changes from day to day)...my only regret was that I was not able to keep those delightful cards! Oh before I forget, I love the idea that internet use is for free at the business center on the ground floor (just behind the reception area), unlike other hotels that will rip you off with the internet fees. In my 4 day stay in Hue, I have never seen a better hotel than the La Residence!

We had 2 wonderful nights at La Residence. The hotel was beautiful, the staff excellent and breakfasts fantastic. We booked a boat tour , bikes and a train journey through the hotels tour desk; the guy there was really helpful. The pool was fabulous,and overlooked the perfume river. We would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for a bit of luxury and relaxation

After a noisy Hanoi and very bad experience with Sofitel Metropole hotel we arrived to "Residence and Spa".
This was a very nice surprise: lovely and colonial style decoration, very good bed and pillows! Just perfect for a good rest!
Even if it was raining outside we decided to stay 2 more nights in this very comfortable hotel.
Food is delicious and the "chef" from "Sofitel Metropole" could follow some classes from "The chef" of "Residence"!
Reception was very helpful, Internet club fully equipied and fast.
Spa was not very much of Spa as they don't really know what they are doing.
However just on bad point: the service in restaurant, they are just all the time around you and expecting the money. Doesn't give you a chance to eat delicious romantique dinner in peace.

La Residence is amazing!!
We stayed in the suite at the top in the main building and it is the nicest set of rooms I have ever stayed in! The balconies alone were bigger than the ground floor of our house!
Beautifully decorated, every convenience thought of, supremely comfortable bed!
Incredible gourmet breakfasts and very reasonably priced evening meals served by the river.
And what a setting! Right by the Perfume river. A lovely and huge pool with a peaceful sunning area around it right next to this romantically named river.
A beautiful, luxurious haven. The only problem is that you end up not wanting to sight-see because you just want to stay by the pool or in the hotel!

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.

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.
