Bottom Line

The upper-middle-range Hanoi Tirant Hotel is one of the larger properties in Hanoi's Old Quarter. While most hotels in this area have no facilities, the upscale Hanoi Tirant has a small rooftop swimming pool, a tiny gym, and even a stylish rooftop bar and restaurant with the best views in the entire neighborhood. The 80 modern rooms here have wooden floors and furniture, and all rooms come with computers, flat-screen TVs, and decorative glass-wall bathrooms. Located right in the heart of the Old Quarter, the hotel is as convenient as it gets for restaurants, bars, shops, and tourist sights. The Tirant is definitely a cut above most of the surrounding competition, although it's also priced slightly above the rest. The rooms are not better than some others in the area (like the Calypso Grand), but the extra facilities are worth it.

Scene

One of the Old Quarter's most upmarket spots

The elegant Hanoi Tirant Hotel is one of the tallest buildings in the Old Quarter of Hanoi, and the imposing soft-yellow building greets guests with a large lobby. There are actually two parts to the lobby, as the hotel gets large groups who are accommodated in a separate room during check-in. Both areas are spacious, with large hanging chandeliers, black upholstered armchairs, and classic white and black flooring. One mirrored wall panel is painted with colorful fish, creating a faux aquarium effect, and there are artsy traditional masks throughout the space. Oversized pots of leafy green plants and colorful flowers sit on the floor and atop ornate, gold lacquered tables. While most hotels in this part of town feel much more like guesthouses, the Tirant feels like a proper upmarket hotel. Beyond the couples, families, and groups who stay here, the hotel also attracts those looking for the hotel's rooftop restaurant/bar, one of the most stylish in the area. It has rattan sofas and plush armchairs, and is a magnet for those who want to enjoy the outstanding views of Hoan Kiem Lake over a romantic dinner or drinks.

Location

Right in the middle of the Old Quarter, surrounded by restaurants and bars

Map of Hanoi Tirant Hotel

The Hanoi Tirant is located right in the middle of Hanoi's bustling and tourist-popular Old Quarter. The hotel is convenient for all tourist sights, just a five-minute walk to Hoan Kiem Lake and the water puppet theater. There are hundreds of restaurants, bars, and shops all around the hotel, and it is as centrally located as one can be. The views from the rooftop at the Tirant are the best in the whole Old Quarter as it is among the area's tallest buildings. The only drawback to this spot is that the traffic, chaos, and noise is non-stop throughout the day, and this continues in the evening when nearby Walking Street's bars and pubs gets going. From the Tirant to the international airport, it takes about 40 minutest to an hour by car, depending on traffic.

Rooms

Elegant, modern rooms; Suites have large balconies

The Hanoi Tirant is one of the more elegant hotels in the neighborhood, and all rooms have shiny wood floors and fine wooden desks and cabinets. Beds come with gold-accented bedspreads and pillows, and even the small Classic Rooms each have a couple of plush chairs for seating. White walls have a few token pieces of art, but higher level bookings have ornate carved screens and even more attractive design elements. Additionally, all rooms come with computers, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, minibars, safes, electric kettles, alarm clocks, and central air-conditioning. Some Classic Rooms don't have windows, or only have tiny bedside windows, and the Deluxe Rooms don't have views, but the Premium Deluxe, Executive, and Suite rooms all have views, while Tirant Suites have large balconies. Bathrooms have decorative glass walls with gold touches, and offer ample space. The Classic and Deluxe Rooms have sliding glass-door shower units with gold-tiled walls and rainfall showerheads, and the other room categories have shower/tub combos. Though the area is noisy, rooms do stay quiet. 

Features

Pool and fitness center are Old Quarter rarities; fantastic rooftop restaurant/bar with best view in the old town

Most hotels in the Old Quarter are small and have no facilities other than breakfast-only restaurants, so the Hanoi Tirant is a stand-out, and has some of the neighborhood's best features. The pool here is one of the few available in the old town; situated on the roof, it's lovely for a dip and sunbathing, though only has space and loungers for about 10 guests. There is also a minuscule fitness center with just three machines, but it's better than most local options. There are two restaurants in the hotel, including the Tirant Restaurant, which is downstairs and serves the hotel's excellent free breakfast buffets. The Skyline Rooftop Restaurant & Bar is the highlight of the hotel, with indoor and outdoor dining and drinking areas set on and below the roof, with the swimming pool right in between. As this is among the Old Quarter's highest buildings, there are fantastic views over Hoan Kiem Lake and of all of the old town, and one can even see the Long Bien Bridge and Red River from here. It's a truly outstanding spot, and is certainly the best place to get above it all in old Hanoi. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel and the front desk can arrange everything from child care to airport transfers and car services.
