Vietnam imperial capital gets first five-star hotel

The Vietnam Administration of Tourism Thursday conferred five-star status to the Imperial Hotel in Hue.

Located in the heart of the former feudal capital, by the Hương (Perfume) River, it becomes the city’s first five-star property, and the country’s second to be managed by a domestic company.

The hotel, opened May 25 this year, has 198 rooms, including 168 deluxe rooms, three imperial suites, and one presidential suite. It boasts a combination of modern facilities and the cultural and architectural values of Hue besides a harmonious combination of Western and Oriental architecture.

The only other domestically run five-star hotel is the Windsor Plaza Hotel managed by Van Thinh Phat Co. in Ho Chi Minh City.
