Some of Hue’s best accommodation

La Residence Hue Hotel & Spa: “Formerly the residence of the French colonial governor … its Art Deco feel extends far beyond the striking bowed façade and porthole windows: vermillion club chairs grace the on-site Le Gouverneur bar, while the 122 rooms are appointed with vintage-style light fixtures, ceramic-tiled bathrooms, and photographs of old Hue.” (Travel and Leisure)

Hue Riverside Boutique Resort & Spa: “The 4 hectares property is surrounded by Pomelo trees, gardens and flowers … every room has a view of the Perfume River on either the ground floor or the first floor of the five elegant and traditional buildings, has a privileged view on the Perfume River.” (AFAR)

Phong Nha Farmstay: “On the edge of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, Phong Nha Farmstay is surrounded by vast rice paddy fields and imposing mountains … the hotel looks chaste with typical Vietnamese housing architecture; you can just simply experience local village life or chill out in a hammock by the pool … the staff is genuinely friendly and willing to give out the best advice on where to go and what to do.” (Maze Vietnam)

Stay Hotel: “Formerly the Hoan Thien, this six-storey giant (don’t worry, it has an elevator) was taken over in early 2014 by French brothers Arnauld and Gaulthier and given a bit of a makeover.” (Travelfish)

Canary Boutique Hotel: “A budget price for such cleanliness, professional staff, a great breakfast menu with free seconds, and competitively priced tours, a bath-tub is just the cherry on top after a long day at the Citadel or nearby bars.” (Lonely Planet)

Pilgrimage Village Resort: “It's close by some of the imperial tombs and it's a great base for country cycling too … it's also a good escape from Vietnam's cities … but if you see yourself wanting to be downtown a lot, and you want to eat in town, the 15-20 minute journey back and forth might become a drag.” (Rusty Compass)
