Resort Review: La Residence Hue Hotel & Spa

Hue is a city rich in culture and history and is recognized by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage site, and La Residence Hue Hotel & Spa – MGallery by Sofitel enjoys a preeminent position in this mystic city

Set on the banks of the mesmerizing Perfume River, stretching over 200m along the river, La Residence has the perfect, peaceful location in walking distance of both the Citadel’s Ancient Forbidden City, and the City center.

The Hotel building itself has a history in keeping with the enchanting city in which it sits. The Hotel was constructed in the 1930s in the stunning stream-line Art Deco style of the time, and was then, the official residence of the French governor in central Vietnam until 1954, a bustling Command Centre for the Americans in the 1960s and a hospital that nursed North Vietnamese soldiers during the Tet Offensive of 1968.

The grand opening of La Residence Hue Hotel & Spa in 2005, in keeping with the original Art Deco design, has created one unique hotel complex that combines sensitively designed annexes to extend the original mansion to 122 luxury guestrooms and Suites, with the serene grounds and atmosphere unique in Viet- nam that evokes a certain dreamy nos- talgia. The extraordinary restored rooms have a unique set up and décor, which reflect the influence of the French archi- tects and designers between 1910-1954 such as Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann and Pierre Chareau, or the stunning Chambre Rouge in the movie La Chambre Rouge (The Red Room) of Jean Pierre Berck- mans in 1973. Walking along the hotel’s corridors of bowed façade, long horizontal lines and nautical porthole windows, you may hear whispered tales of a bygone era.
