Gay Hanoi – Hotels

Planning to visit Hanoi?  We recommend staying near the historical city centre as traffic is unbelievably bad.

Hotels located between the Truc Bach Lake and the Hanoi Opera House or west as far as Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum and Temple of Literature are in a great location.  All of the main places of interest in Hanoi are within this area, and many can be reached by foot.

8.6 Very Good based on 173 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Near the Opera House. Elegant design. Superb dining.

Set close to the Old Quarter and the Hanoi Opera House, the designers of this hotel have set out to recreate the glamour of an evening at the opera.  Each guest room is decorated with traditional silk drapes, parquet flooring and flamboyantly colored furniture.  The hotel’s restaurants and café are equally stylish, although you are spoilt for choice for places to eat nearby.  Free WiFi throughout the hotel.

9.1 Fantastic based on 724 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Historic building. Stylish design. Wonderful facilities.

The Metropole, the more stylish of the two Sofitel’s in Hanoi, has been welcoming ambassadors, writers, heads of state since 1901.  The French colonial-styled building is located in the heart of the city center close to the Hoan Kiem Lake and the historic Old Quarters.  Expect excellent service and a exceptionally warm welcome.

Even if you decide to stay somewhere else, we recommend visiting Le Club Bar in the afternoon for a fabulous afternoon tea and chocolate buffet.

8.4 Very Good based on 561 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Apartment style. Well-appointed rooms. Great location.

Most gay travellers will be familiar with the Somerset concept of building a 4/5 star hotel, but with apartments rather than rooms.  You don’t get the glitz and glamour of the Metropole, but you do get a washer & dryer, separate lounge and free WiFi.  If you are in Hanoi after visiting other parts of Vietnam or Laos, then the ability to wash and tumble dry your knickers without paying excessive hotel laundry charges could be attractive.

Location-wise, the Somerset is just of the edge of our preferred area, but the Old Quarter is still within walking distance.
