Every year, more and more new boutique hotels in Hanoi come to being. This result is due to the rapid expansion of tourist industry in Vietnam recently leading to the high desire for rent accommodation. Meanwhile, simple conditions for the establishment of a hotel are also the main contribution to this development. In order to gain competitive advantages from the current rivals, such hotels frequently offer special packages for tourists. Some of these packages are discount, impressive services or different amenities. However, there are quite many hotel which lower down their quality to earn profits from the packages. This is owning to the lack of the hotels’ capacities and capital. That’s why it is untrue that all new boutique hotels in Hanoi are good choices.
This touch situation may cause you to need a great deal of time to seek necessary information about new accommodation in the Old Quarter because most boutique hotels in Hanoi these days present there. Consequently, I have contacted my friends, experienced travelers and tourism consultants, to give some suggestions below so that based on them, you could solve the problem quickly. I hope that one of these hotels would fulfill all your demands.
The Noble Swan Hotel & Spa
Address: No.20-22 Chan Cam Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi
Price: At least 54 USD
As you wouldn’t realize, the first one I want to mention is The Noble Swan Hotel & Spa, interestingly, a 4-star hotel established in 2016. Compared with other 4-star ones in the Old Quarter, this landmark offers you with a much lower price. I recommend that it would be better if you book a room and spa packages on the hotel’s website directly to receive a discount of 10% for any service. Although its facilities are not really diverse, the two most prominent are enough to gratify even discerning customers. Firstly, Swan Spa & Treatment is where you are exposed to massage techniques mainly from Vietnam, Thailand and Sweden, plus an abundance of body care services. Secondly, you should not miss countless tasty cakes and savory Vietnamese and Western dishes produced by Hanoi Jade Restaurant & Patisserie.
Apart from this, all bedding in your room is handmade and perfumed for a healthier sleep. Moreover, the hotel is favorable to travel, only a 3 minute walk to Hoan Kiem Lake, Hang Da Shopping Mall and Hanoi St Joseph’s Cathedral without impediments made by people and vehicles.
O’Gallery Premier Hotel & Spa
Address: No.122 Hang Bong Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi
Price: At least 78 USD
The second in the list of new boutique hotels in Hanoi you can have a knack for is O’Gallery Premier Hotel & Spa. It’s also ranked as 4 stars, but sited in the southern west of the Old Quarter, and quite near to Ba Dinh District. As a result, if you aspire to walk to Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi Opera House or Ba Dinh Square, it would take you up to 10 minutes to finish your route. In that case, I advise you to rent a bike. Hopefully, Hang Bong Street can lead you to the lake directly, so you don’t need detailed direction for that short journey.
Looking inside the hotel, you will figure out that there are up to 55 guestrooms, one restaurant and one spa all of which are decorated with characteristic Vietnamese style. This is shown up clearly in a charming space created by black ornaments and brown furniture. A large balcony is appointed in certain rooms to let you have a more wonderful city view, while the hotel’s spa, O’Spa, provides you with the majority of Vietnamese massage methods for entire relaxation.
Hanoi HM Boutique Hotel
Address: No.3 Hang Dau Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi
Price: At least 49 USD
In fact, Hanoi HM Boutique Hotel is one of the new boutique hotels in Hanoi established in 2016. In comparison with other middle-rank rivals, this 3-star hotel’s prices are a bit higher. Probably, the main reason for this is that the hotel consists of HM Spa. When you see the spa menu, all basic cares, including body care, facial treatments, foot massage, are displayed, but not luxurious packages. Also, online booking is unavailable. But this is value-for-money since the hotel hasn’t reached the standards of 4-star hotels yet.
Notably, you can have a chance to view the city from above at Sky View Restaurant sited on the 9th floor, where you could observe the exhibition of Western and Vietnamese culinary arts in the styles of a la carte or set menu for all meals. But that is not the most outstanding feature of the hotel. As you stand at the entrance, you might be astounded by such a domed gate like 5-star hotels’ one. However, you should notice that because the hotel is pretty close to Hoan Kiem Lake, the environment is frequently noisy, not beneficial to people who like tranquility.
Hotel 1-2-3 Hanoi
Address: No.34 Nam Ngu Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi
Price: At least 49 USD
Different from some new boutique hotels in Hanoi, this 3-star one, actually, is renovated from an ordinary hotel by Japanese investors. This is the reason why the hotel has got typical Japanese properties lying in its amenities. The first point is a public bathroom where people can bath together and soak themselves in a large hot tub. Fascinatingly, they could see the scenery of Hanoi outside through a spacious glass window there. The second feature is what the restaurant will serve you with later. Aside from intercontinental and Vietnamese food, it also supplies conventional Japanese dishes for breakfast and lunch. To some extent, Hotel 1-2-3 Hanoi is a great place for those having an affinity for Japanese culture.
Anyway, you need to pay attention that the hotel is in the western edge of the Old Quarter. It’s quite close to Hanoi Railway Station and the French Quarter. So, if your itinerary is to move to Dong Xuan Market, or to engage in outdoor activities at Hoan Kiem Lake after you check in at the hotel, using bike is advisable. Because you will be very tired in the case of going on foot.
Hanoi Emerald Waters Hotel & Spa
Address: No.47 Lo Su Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi
Price: From 60 USD
Another 4-star hotel in the vicinity of Hoan Kiem Lake is Hanoi Emerald Waters Hotel & Spa. Thanks to its special location, what you will need are only 2 minutes to attend Jade Mountain Temple and The Huc Bridge. In spite of that, you ought to remember at the weekend, vehicles are unallowable. The reason for this is a part of Lo Su Street converted into pedestrian zone, while the rest of the street is for car park. This makes the road become so overcrowded and rowdy, contributing to annoyance for introverted tourists. But for active people, that wouldn’t really problematic.
By the way, you can forget everything upon entry into Salmon Run Restaurant inside the hotel. Not only scrumptious European, but also local meals are always available within a short time. After gratifying your hunger, you should to visit EF Spa or Nexus Café to be more laid-back. Nevertheless, it’s regrettable that the hotel’s website has still been incomplete. So you can merely view a few spa services, but not make reservation for them.
In conclusion, 5 hotels I’ve given to you are all new boutique hotels in Hanoi with high quality and good review from loads of tourists. Just become their guests, and after that, they will show you more surprising gifts to help you build a striking holiday in Vietnam.
