Hotels in Hanoi .If you already know me a little from more articles or from social networks, Vietnam is one of my favorite countries, and I have stayed in Hanoi in particular several times. I love this city!
And personally, I have traveled alone, as a couple, with my parents, with my children (being babies)… so if you want to know a little more about the security of the country, I will tell you the definitive guide to travel to Viet Nam . Where you will also find many tips.
In this article we are going to talk about the best areas to stay in Hanoi , practical first-hand advice and I will also add a series of hotels to make it easier for you to find your way around and find one that suits you and your budget.
As always, if there is a photo that catches your eye, with a single click you go directly to the hotel page.
Unquestionably, the best area to stay in Hanoi is the Old Quarter. This area is not only the most charming in the city, but here you will find a 24-hour atmosphere, restaurants, bars, shops, street food and plenty of accommodation (many boutique) and very cheap (although there are also all types of hotels and prices).
Inside the Old Quarter, we are going to differentiate the area into 3 parts:
Near Hoan Kiem Lake
The Old Quarter is quite large and the best option is to stay as close to Hoan Kiem Lake as possible. This lake with its famous Ngoc Son temple is one of the best known images of Hanoi with its red bridge.
Some great accommodation options in Hoan Kiem:
- Hanoi Hotel 4*
- The Oriental Jade Hotel 5*
- La Sinfonia del Rey Hotel & Spa 4* (Excellent location)
- Ja Cosmo Hotel and Spa 3*
If you are looking for something cheap (in Hanoi it is very easy to find cheap accommodation, you can even find 5 stars for 35 euros/night double room) one of the options that I use a lot is the hotel Hanoi La Selva Central Hotel & Spa 3 * usually around 12 euros/night room. double although I have come to pay 9 euros/night room. double. In addition, it has very good ratings and opinions.
Close to the Temple of Literature and Train Street
It is a very quiet area (within the chaos that is Hanoi) and you can find some good value for money accommodation. Hotels are usually close to Train Street and walking about 500 meters is the Temple of Literature. Right next to the temple, there is nothing, just some accommodation in private homes.
Some great accommodation options near the Temple of Literature/Train Street:
- O’Gallery Premier Hotel & Spa 4*
- Anchie Homestay – City Central 2*
- Golden Cyclo Premier Hotel 4*
Near the Hanoi Opera House
On the other shore of the Lake, we find places of interest such as the Hanoi Opera House and some museums. This area is somewhat more exclusive, but it is also a little further away from the old town and the chaotic streets that we like so much (night market, Ngoc Son temple…) even so, it is a good option and in a good area.
Some great options where to stay near the Hanoi Opera House:
- Hilton Hanoi Opera 5*
- Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi 5* (Excellent location, between the Opera House and the Lake)
