La Residence Hue Hotel and Spa has joined Accor's MGallery Collection.

The 81-year-old boutique hotel is the third property in Vietnam to become a member of the MGallery Collection, and the first in the country to join the MGallery roster of historic hotels, alongside establishments such as the Covent Hotel in Amsterdam, the Grand Hotel Beauvau in Marseilles, and the Hotel Frances in Santo Domingo.

Besides its heritage background, the hotel boasts strong design connections borne of its architectural roots. At the height of the art deco movement in 1930, the mansion at 5 Le Loi in Hue was built as part of the French Governor's official residence in the former colony of Annam.

Over time, the hotel, with its distinctive bowled faade, long horizontal lines and nautical flourishes, has become a Hue landmark and a destination in its own right. With 200m of frontage along the south bank of the fabled Perfume River, the hotel's terraces, gardens and ample banks of windows offer views of Hues Flag Tower bastion and Truong Tien Bridge.

Inside, the hotel's age-old ambiance is evoked by a fusion of art deco styles. In three linked buildings, the hotel's 122 guest rooms and suites feature louvered shutters, hardwood floors and lofty ceilings.

The Signature Suites -- including the palatial, 76-square-metre Resident's Suite -- are a collection of individually designed and uniquely decorated spaces.

In the centre of the hotel's main building is Le Gouverneur Bar, where a mural by Roland Renaud arches over the room, depicting scenes of Vietnamese daily life.

The hotel's fine-dining restaurant, Le Parfum, serves up a blend of Mediterranean cuisine with strong French overtones, plus traditional Vietnamese dishes.
