In case you haven’t heard of Huế, let it be known that the ancient city of the Nguyễn emperors, and the capital city of Vietnam for approximately 150 years during feudal years (1802–1945), welcomes well over 2 million visitors every year!
Those lucky enough stay at La Residence, a luxury riverside boutique hotel, and quite frankly THE place to call home while visiting the area.
With a complete set of amenities, La Residence was the former residence of the French Colonial Governor.
It is located along the banks of the Perfume River, across from the Imperial Citadel – once home to Emperors and now preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage.
Those crafty Emperors and French Governors sure chose the very best spot!
The patio breeze at La Residence would seem to support this fact…
There is hardly a better view in all of Huế!
The rooms are well-appointed, and especially the airiness is welcome.
At the bar and in the restaurant you will lack nothing.
In fact, you will be completely spoiled for choice.
Here is a YouTube video of La Residence:
Overall, La Residence is simply a lovely place, and we are fortunate that it has been preserved and developed into a five-star luxury hotel.
