If you want to spoil yourself when visiting or travelling through HUE, then look no further than this hotel. As clean as you would expect, the rooms are tastefully and expensively decorated. The staff are well dressed, exceptionally well mannered and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Dining was a rich experience with tables spaced at discreet distances from... More

My wife and I don't normally splurge for a place like this (and there are, of course, so many very nice, cheap hotels in Vietnam) but we were very glad we did. Nicest place I've ever stayed, in short. Beautiful balcony overlooking the lovely Perfume River. The entire estate, top to bottom, is dripping with character and tiny touches. And... More

We spent part of our honeymoon at this hotel and thought it was absolutely beautiful. The Art Deco design is so classy, the staff are lovely and the pool and gardens are picture perfect. We also did the cooking course and would highly recommend it - we had a great teacher and the food was delicious.
