Bargain Vietnam Hotel Ft. Delicious Breakfast Buffets
A governor’s residence before the war, La Résidence sits near the city center of Hué, overlooking the river. A refurbishment in 2005 added two new wings and maintained the original art deco design and furnishings. The hotel’s travel desk can organize cycling trips to Gia Long Tomb and excursions to the garden houses of Hué and to Phong Nha Cave. It also has one of the best breakfast buffets of Asian and Western food I’ve experienced. And it’s hard to beat the price tag. It’s a splurge in Vietnam, but a great bargain anywhere else in the world. From $152.
