Hotel Information

It's a rare hotel that can transport guests back to a bygone era but La Residence Hotel & Spa pulls it off in spectacular style. Built-in 1930 as part of the former colonial governor's residence overlooking Hue's Perfume River, this architectural gem was restored and re-opened in 2005 as a luxury hotel. The Art Deco design aesthetic runs throughout the hotel from the central reception rotunda, flanked by two wings, to Le Gouverneur Bar, Le Parfum restaurant, formal gardens, swimming pool, and 122 guest rooms and suites.

Each guest and public room is a faithful interpretation of style during the heydey of Art Deco. Paris-based interior designer Brigitte Dumont de Chassart scoured design archives for inspirational touches throughout the hotel, from its high ceilings, terrazzo floors, handrails, balconies, light fittings, and furnishings.


La Residence History

In 1930, the mansion at 5 Le Loi opened as an addition to the residence of the colonial French Resident Superieure. This period was the hey-dey of the Art Deco school of design. No corner of the globe was beyond the bounds of this popular movement.

While Art Deco fever was especially fervent in Hanoi and Saigon, Hue also tapped the design current of the day for some of its landmark period buildings. The colonial authorities built the Cercle Sportif, a leisure club that still stands on the south bank of the of Perfume River. And they commissioned a grand colonial mansion, anchored by a rotunda and flanked by swept wings. The building's bowed façade, its long horizontal lines and such nautical flourishes as porthole windows are hallmarks of the Streamline Moderne school of Art Deco architecture.

In 1930s, Le Loi Street was known as rue Jules Ferry, thus named for a 19th Century French prime minister and imperialist. During the Nguyen Dynasty, the imperial navy governed the land along the river, from the present-day railway station to the Stone Bridge (Dap Da) 2.5 kilometers downstream. When the French assumed control of Hue in the 1880s, they ceded the northern bank of the Perfume River to the Vietnamese and redeveloped the south bank as their 'New City.
