Many tourists prefer a hotel consisting of a spa. Because their demand for beautifying can be gratified. If you also have this ambition but cannot afford the accommodating cost paid to a 5-star hotel in Hanoi’s center, which hotel to stay in Hanoi Old Quarter will be suitable to you? To answer this question, just read the list of spa hotels I advise to you below. Certainly, all of them will never upset you.
THE NOBLE SWAN HOTEL & SPA
– Address: No.20-22 Chan Cam Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi
– Price: From 54USD
Perhaps, you might not believe that a 4-star hotel like The Noble Swan Hotel & Spa would offer such an affordable price of 54USD. But it is true! In fact, compared with some 4-star hotels I’ve stayed, this one has the same quality. From appliances, guestrooms to other necessary facilities are amazing! That is the reason why I place it in the first position. Moreover, the hotel is near Hoan Kiem Lake and Hang Da Shopping Mall. Meanwhile, all streets around it are quite spacious. So you won’t need to worry about long journey time or traffic congestion.
Interestingly, the spa of the hotel is outside the main building to have more spaces for treatment functions. Especially, there are a wide range of special packages and treatment techniques there. I advise that you should book online spa packages and accommodation on the hotel’s website for a huge discount of 10% to save up your budget.
ESSENCE D’ORIENT HOTEL & SPA
– Address: No.22A Ta Hien Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi
– Price: From 60USD
In the north of Hoan Kiem Lake is Essence d’Orient Hotel & Spa. Thanks to its location near the central point of the Old Quarter, you can travel to Bach Ma Temple, Dong Xuan Market within a few minutes. But in the case you want to move to Hoan Kiem Lake on foot, it would take you a great deal of time to do this, while you are likely to feel a bit tired.
Turning to the hotel’s facilities, I have to say that they have a quintessentially modern style – the combination among many cold colors such as grey, dark blue and brown. Apart from restaurant, the hotel gives you a chance to enjoy treatments at its spa which specializes in natural techniques. Two of the most well-known methods are Ancient Fire Acupuncture and Himalayan Salt Stone. However, booking online is unavailable, although the price for dwelling there is pretty affordable.
SERENE BOUTIQUE HOTEL & SPA
– Address: No.16-18 Bat Su Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi
– Price: From 56.25USD
Next in my list of hotel to stay in Hanoi center is Serene Boutique Hotel & Spa. Actually, the hotel is quite far away from the center of the Old Quarter. But it’s near Ba Dinh District. Therefore, if you want to move to Hoan Kiem Lake or Night Market, you should prefer vehicles or, at least, rent a bike to do so. Of course, traveling to Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and One Pillar Pagoda from the hotel is advantageous.
As you could see from the name, due to its site, the hotel has gained a serene space in Bat Su Street. So it enables its guests to unwind entirely. While most of the corners inside it show dark blue shades, the hotel provides some rooms with red furniture to heat the ambiance and blow away the cold surrounding its visitors. The spa is serviceable too, but only open from 8am to 1pm and from 3pm to 8pm.
HANOI MARVELLOUS HOTEL & SPA
– Address: No.55 Duong Thanh Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi
– Price: From 68.25USD
Another elegant hotel to stay in Hanoi Old Quarter with acceptable prices is Hanoi Marvellous Hotel & Spa. Indeed, this newly-established hotel is in the vicinity of Hang Da Shopping Mall, very well-suited to shopaholics to have a discovery of all amazing objects displayed in colorful stores. But you need to pay attention that near the hotel is a parking area for cars and taxis. Consequently, in the evening and at night, the time when a great number of vehicles gather there, your travel could be obstructed by them.
Probably, this annoyance might be offset by the grandeur the hotel grant to you. This one is adorned with traditional Vietnamese style that can be seen from the lobby, the staff’s outfits to the restaurant and guestrooms. Regarding the spa, you can suffer from Vietnam’s ancient methods with herbal remedies. After that, you are allowed to lie down on a bed in a large balcony to rest and sunbathe.
ORIENTAL SUITE HOTEL & SPA
– Address: No.58 Hang Dao Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi
– Price: From 72USD
One more conventional-Vietnamese-style hotel to stay in Hanoi Old Quarter is Oriental Suite Hotel & Spa. Occupying an area on the side of Hang Dao Street, one of the main roads heading to Hoan Kiem directly, the hotel enables you to travel to the lake within 3 minutes and then part take in hundreds of fascinating outdoor activities held by local and foreign people at the weekend. But you need to notice that at that time, all vehicles are banned but the street is still very uproarious. As far as I’m concerned, some introverted tourists usually dislike the hotel due to this problem.
Looking at the hotel’s facilities, you will not be disappointed with them since they all reach the European standards of luxury. Aside from this, they are harmonized with Vietnamese-style ornaments delicately, which is highlighted so clearly in O’Spa, the spa utilizing Vietnam’s ancient methods to let guests make themselves become prettier and healthier.
– Address: No.38 Gia Ngu Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi
– Price: From 66USD
If you have an affinity of French colonial buildings in the French Quarter, there is a hotel like them in the Old Quarter which can be your admirable accommodation. It is Tirant Hotel, an illustrious 4-star hotel in this area. Its French style is exhibited from the exterior surface to your room, and even its first-rate spa called Ciel Spa. Again, the hotel is close to Hoan Kiem Lake. But similar with the case of Oriental Suite Hotel & Spa, you would face countless hordes of noisy tourists walking on the street at night and at the weekend. So ensure that you can resist loud sound and blockages well.
What makes the hotel more prominent is that it has got an outdoor restaurant, and excitingly, an open-air pool. Nothing could be more restful than standing there to enjoy the wind and city view from above. Nevertheless, the price for this experience may be quite exorbitant for some budget travelers.
HANOI EMERALD WATERS HOTEL & SPA
– Address: No.37 Lo Su Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi
– Price: From 55.23USD
When someone talks about the renowned spa hotel to stay in Hanoi Old Quarter, he/she could mention Hanoi Emerald Waters Hotel & Spa. This is because its in-house spa offers a treatment packages very useful for men with the cost of only 30USD, apart from countless peculiar treatments only for women. Besides, for the first time you dwell there, you will be surprised at its decoration with mainly dark and light blue colors like its name – oceanic water.
The hotel is also a propitious starting point to have a short adventure around Hanoi’s historical destinations, given a fact that it’s not far away from Thang Long Water Puppet, where tempting performances can attract to young children and teenagers, and of course, Jade Mountain Temple and The Huc Bridge. Nonetheless, you should avoid to travel after 5pm on the condition that you have an aversion to the noise and stoppage made by human and vehicles.
Overall, after such information I’ve given to you, I think you are able to answer the question: “Which hotel to stay in Hanoi Old Quarter is preferable for you?” Just accommodate at one of the aforementioned hotels once, and then you will have a desire to go back there again.
