 Hanoi (VNA) – La Residence Hotel & Spa in Vietnam’s central province of Thua Thien-Hue has been ranked by the US’s Conde Nast Traveler magazine as the eighth best hotel in Asia.

This is the fourth consecutive time the hotel has received the magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards, one of the most prestigious awards for hostels, resorts, cities, islands, airlines, and cruise lines in the world.

La Residence Hue is a boutique hotel on the banks of the Huong (Perfume) River overlooking the former Imperial Citadel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The hotel was painstakingly restored in 2005 and redeveloped as an exceptional design hotel, with architectural features of the the 1920’s Streamline Moderne school of art-deco architecture.-VNA
