If you are looking for the best hotel in Hue - then La Residence Hotel and Spa would definitely fit the bill. It is a beautiful hotel right in the city centre - with a storied history and elegant Art Deco French Colonial architecture. It was once the residence of the French Colonial Governor of Hue. The buildings have been carefully restored, and the large garden compound provide an elegant and relaxing retreat for the guests.
The interior is just as impressive. Art Deco and neo-Classical style carry through from the outside to the inside with soothing colours and graceful lines. Only in the bar does the colour scheme get amped up a bit for some excitement. If you have the cash to spare - this would be the most stylish base to explore Hue.
