Hanoi, Vietnam

Accommodation

 
 

Budget Accommodation
Hanoi's Old Quarter is littered with guesthouses, hostels and budget hotels catering for budget travellers. A venue down an alley will not have the constant traffic noise, but check for construction work happening next door, it can wake you up just as early. If you leave food in your room keep it covered or sealed, poor hygiene in the neighbourhood can bring rodents through the smallest of holes in search of sustenance.

A one night stay at a hostel in a dormitory-style room (usually four to six people in a room) costs USD7-9 per bed while a private room for two costs USD10-16 per night. Up the scale, a night stay in a 1 to 2-star budget hotel would cost you USD15-20 for a standard room and USD20-25 for a little luxury and more room space. A standard room in a guesthouse with air-conditioning and attached bathroom would cost you USD15-20 per night but can be as high as USD50 for a large family room at a higher end guesthouse.

Mid-Priced Hotels
Hanoi offers a choice of more than 200 mid-priced (3-star) hotels. These hotels are mainly boutique or locally-owned hotels with rates for standard rooms costing USD20-30 per night. However, rates can be as low as USD15-17 per night during the low season, special promotion or when hotels need to fill-up their empty rooms. Further away from the Old Quarter, rooms rates generally trend lower. Check with the various online travel booking sites for hotel deals in Hanoi. 

Top-End Hotels
Though not as numerous as the budget stays and mid-priced hotels, there is no difficulty in finding a 4 to 5-star hotel in the city - there is around 40. Though many are locally-owned, several belong or are managed by large international chains including Daewoo Hanoi Hotel, InterContinental Hanoi Westlake, Melia Hanoi Hotel, Sofitel Metropole Hanoi Hotel and Somerset Grand Hanoi. Room rates start from USD60 though many are from USD70 to USD120 per night.

Advice
Be aware information about a hotel from a tout may in fact be different from what the hotel offers. If ever in doubt, speak directly with a staff member of the hotel.
Check and verify before partaking a "free" product or service offered by the hotel. If at any point during your stay you decide to keep your valuables in a safe box with the hotel management, avoid giving them your credit cards. Some hotel owners have been known to use the credit card information to book rooms at their hotels with your cards after your departure.
