Hanoi La Siesta Diamond Hotel & Spa

Hanoi, Vietnam

The Hanoi Elegance Diamond is an upscale boutique hotel that sits on a side street just off of Hoan Kiem Lake. It is a quiet spot, with easy access to the restaurants, bars, shops, and sights of the Old Quarter in five minutes on foot. The hotel's 34 stylish rooms are decorated with handsome wallpaper accent walls, wood floors, and plush velvet cushions, and come with modern amenities like free laptops, DVD players, and flat-screen TVs. The hotel has a small spa, as well as a rooftop restaurant and bar with excellent views of the lake and Hanoi (plus an outstanding free breakfast). Prices here are comparable to nearby Old Quarter properties like the Tirant Hotel, yet the Elegance Diamond offers larger and nicer rooms, though it lacks the Tirant's pool.

Serene Premier Hotel

Hanoi, Vietnam

The Hanoi Serene is a sharp mid-range hotel with 32 rooms set in a narrow market alleyway in the heart of Hanoi's Old Quarter. Rooms here are a bit bigger than nearby competitors, and have free computers, free Wi-Fi and breakfast, and even include free bottles of wine for most bookings. Like most Old Quarter hotels, the Serene has a small restaurant which is open only for breakfast, but there are countless numbers of restaurants, bars, and shops in every direction. The market alleyway is crowded and chaotic by day, but quiet at night, and those who want to be in the midst of traditional Hanoi life will like it here. Compared to the Elegance Ruby and Cheering Hotel in the same alleyway, the Hanoi Serene offers the best size and value for its rooms.


Hanoi La Siesta Hotel Trendy

Hanoi, Vietnam

From its eighth-story restaurant to its moody basement bar, the upscale Hanoi La Siesta Hotel Trendy offers a stylish, modern, and upscale boutique feel that’s still fresh from its 2016 opening. Indeed, past guests rave about the food (including a free breakfast buffet), the trendy bar, and the impeccable service. The hotel’s 70 rooms and suites are stylish with wood floors and furnishings and details like mosaic tiled entryways and tray ceilings, though bathrooms tend to be narrow and entry-level rooms lack exterior windows. There’s no on-site pool or gym, but the hotel has a spa with six treatment rooms. The property's Old Quarter location is excellent, in walking distance to eateries, markets, sights, and Hoan Kiem Lake. For similar amenities, travelers may want to compare rates with the nearby O'Gallery Premier Hotel & Spa.


La Storia Ruby Hotel

Hanoi, Vietnam

The Hanoi Elegance Ruby is a mid-range boutique hotel that sits in a tiny alleyway in Hanoi's Old Quarter. It's near all the tourist sights and tons of restaurants and bars, in an ideal location. The 20 rooms here are small, with wood floors and bright decor, and have free laptops for use, plus rainfall showers in the bathrooms. The hotel lacks much beyond its small restaurant, which serves free breakfasts and then closes for the day. Staff are knowledgeable and helpful about the area, and can direct guests to favorite local spots. While the rooms are a bit more cramped and pricey than the nearby Art Trendy Hotel, they are still a good choice for an Old Quarter stay.


Hoi An Holiday Villa

Hoi An, Vietnam

Hoi An Holiday Villa is a tiny value boutique offering a five-minute drive from the center of Hoi An. Its 10 rooms are large and airy, with big windows, comfortable beds, and amenities including air-conditioning, electric kettles, free Wi-Fi, minibars, and flat-screen TVs. Bathrooms are clean and have rain showers, but the water boilers are tiny, resulting in limited hot water. The a la carte breakfast is free and varied, and tasty, inexpensive Vietnamese cuisine is served for lunch and dinner in a lovely open pavilion made entirely of wood. The outdoor pool is a good size and pleasant, and offers a handful of loungers, umbrellas, and self-service towels. Although the hotel is not centrally located for walking, guests can borrow bicycles to ride into town or go to the beach. Muca Hoi An Boutique Resort is another value option worth considering. 


Golden Sun Palace Hotel

Hanoi, Vietnam

The Golden Sun Palace is an 18-room boutique hotel located on a quiet street in Hanoi's Old Quarter. This value hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants and shops. The charming rooms can be small and some lack windows, like many in the Old Quarter, and they feature with fine wood floors, homey white furniture, air-conditioning, large flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. The hotel serves a good free breakfast in a quaint lower-level dining area on site, while the small lounge above the lobby has free computers for guest use. Travelers looking for larger guest rooms might want to check out the hotel's sister property, Golden Sun Suites, which has slightly higher rates and is right next door. 


Golden Sun Villa Hotel

Hanoi, Vietnam

The mid-range Golden Sun Villa Hotel is the nicest of all the Golden Sun properties in Hanoi. Located just a few blocks from Hoan Kiem Lake on the edge of the historic Old Quarter, the 29-room hotel is surrounded by restaurants and shops and is close to most Hanoi sights. Rooms here are far larger than other similar boutique hotels, and have eye-catching woodwork plus modern comforts like flat-screen TV's, minibars, and rainfall showers. The hotel has a small restaurant that serves only free breakfast, plus a travel desk in the lobby for arranging tours. The price-point is about the same as the other Golden Suns, but it's a far better value, and an excellent small boutique choice when compared to the best of Old Quarter stays in its category. 


JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi

Hanoi, Vietnam

Opened in 2013, the 445-guest room JW Marriott Hanoi is one of the newer luxury hotels in Hanoi and aimed squarely at business travelers. The hotel is situated in an ultra-modern glass building located outside on the campus of the National Convention Center. Guest rooms and suites are spacious and light-filled; they have chic, contemporary decor and modern amenities like 42-inch flat-screens, DVD players, and iPod docks -- but in-room Wi-Fi incurs a fee. On-site features do not disappoint, and include three restaurants, an indoor lap pool, a 24-hour fitness center, and a spa. Guests in Executive Rooms and Suites enjoy free breakfast, snacks, and drinks in the Executive Lounge. InterContinental Hanoi Westlake is a comparable five-pearl alternative with similar amenities, including an outdoor pool and kids' pool. 


Riverside Oasis Villa

Hoi An, Vietnam

The 10-room Riverside Oasis Villa is a cute value boutique, located a 20-minute bike ride from the city center. There's little on-site other than a small, pleasant pool and a tiny restaurant that serves free a la carte breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The hotel’s rooms are spotless and well-maintained; all have flat-screen TVs, minibars, free Wi-Fi, and air-conditioning. They feature small balconies with pool, garden, or river views. The villa is a quick drive from the city center, and guests can borrow bikes free of charge. The Riverside Oasis doesn't offer shuttle service to the beach or Hoi An, which is unusual for the area. Those looking to explore the Ancient Town on foot may want to consider the Hai Au Hotel, which is within walking distance of the main sights in Hoi An. 


Essence Hoi An Hotel & Spa

Hoi An, Vietnam

The 107-room Essence Hoi An Hotel & Spa is a four-pearl property located a 10-minute walk from restaurants, shops, and attractions in the Ancient Town. Rooms are elegant with classic decor that incorporates local touches. Free Wi-Fi, well-stocked minibars, and sleek bathrooms are standard. Most rooms have a balcony, and a few have spacious terraces with loungers and hot tubs. The focus here is on relaxation; there's a cute spa tucked away in the gardens, two beautiful pools with whirlpools and drink service, and lovely, lush grounds with lots of shaded areas and loungers. Food is tasty and reasonably priced (by upscale hotel standards), and an excellent breakfast buffet is included in all room rates. There are two kiddy pools and a number of Family Rooms, but those traveling with children may want to consider the Hoi An Historic Hotel, which has a kids’ club. 


Salinda Resort Phu Quoc Island

Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam

With a beautiful stretch of beach, excellent cuisine, and a gorgeous infinity pool overlooking the sea, the 121-room Salinda Resort is one of the most luxurious hotels in this part of Phu Quoc. Rooms are large and airy, with upscale decor and amenities, free Wi-Fi, and great bathrooms with rain showers. The spa, complete with a wide array of signature massages and treatments, is one of the best around, and the fitness center is equipped with a range of well-maintained cardio and strength-training equipment. Although the hotel's focus on relaxation makes it popular with couples, the Salinda also offers plenty of options for families, including a cute kids’ club, a kiddy pool, and babysitting services. In this price range, the gorgeous Chen Sea Resort & Spa Phu Quoc offers a more intimate but similarly luxurious stay. 


Hanoi Tirant Hotel

Hanoi, Vietnam

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. 


Hanoi Charming 2 Hotel

Hanoi, Vietnam

The 22-room Hanoi Charming 2 Hotel is located on the edge of Hanoi's touristy and atmospheric Old Quarter, near restaurants, bars, shops, on a busy street with heavy traffic. Rooms have traditional decor, with wood floors and polished wood cabinets and furniture. All rooms come with free computers and DVD players, and the highest-priced rooms have balconies and get a free bottle of wine at check-in. A free breakfast is served daily in the restaurant, but not lunch or dinner. This mid-range hotel, part of the Hotel Group that includes the Hanoi Holiday Diamond Hotel, is well-maintained and friendly, and a good choice for those wanting to stay in the Old Quarter, but travelers might also want to compare rates at the nearby Calypso Grand.


Hue Serene Palace Hotel

Hue, Vietnam

The 30-room Hue Serene Palace Hotel is a value property situated on a quiet side street in central Hue. It's within walking distance of restaurants, bars, and major tourist attractions, and is just two blocks from the Perfume River. Simple rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs, computers, and mini-fridges, and some have balconies with nice city views. The restaurant serves all meals, including a free breakfast, and most guests give it good reviews for its Western and local offerings. Other features, though, are few and far between. Airport transfers are available, and the hotel assists with a variety of tours. Travelers looking for more amenities at similar rates could check out the Moonlight Hotel Hue, which adds a fitness center, spa, and pool. 


Golden Art Hotel

Hanoi, Vietnam

The Art Trendy Hotel is a mid-range, boutique-style property located on one of the quieter streets in Hanoi's bustling Old Quarter. All 30 modern rooms have wood floors plus flat-screen TVs, free laptops, and Wi-Fi. Like many hotels in the area, there are no facilities beyond a small restaurant downstairs, which serves free breakfast plus drinks throughout the day. The staff are overwhelmingly friendly -- they've even accompanied guests in cabs to the bus station, in addition to booking tours and making local recommendations. Guests looking to stay even closer to scenic Hoan Kiem Lake should compare rates at Hanoi Elegance Diamond Hotel.
