Centred around the Unesco-protected Imperial City, Hue was once the seat of Vietnam’s emperors. The city is split in two by the Perfume River, which fills with orchard blossoms every autumn. Home to the Forbidden City and Royal Tombs, it has history galore and is one of the best Vietnamese cities to explore by bike. Read on to find the Hue hotel that best fits you.

Modernists will relish the interiors at Azerai La Residence, a riverside hotel with distinct art deco styling on the banks of the Perfume River. The design harks back to the days of Indochina with its hardwood floors, French colonial tiles and furniture with smooth, streamlined curves. It’s not all looks though: there’s an excellent restaurant and an award-winning spa, too.

Built in 1901 by a French businessman, Hotel Saigon Morin is one for the history buffs. This relic of French Indochina has quite a history, not least because it survived decades of conflict, including the 1968 Tet Offensive. The rooms here remain fittingly old-school, outfitted with polished parquet floors and colonial furniture. One of the suites is named after Charlie Chaplin, who honeymooned there with his wife Paulette in 1936.

    Hue 1962 Inn is just a few hundred metres from the walls of the Imperial City, built in 1789 when Emperor Gia Long ascended the throne. Just like the Hue of today, the hotel mingles heritage with modernity; the architecture looks decidedly mid-century, but the wood-framed windows, lanterns and artwork hark back to pre-industrial Vietnam. Take it all in over breakfast served on the terrace each morning.
