Somerset Grand Hanoi Serviced Residences5 stars

Why this hotel? Apartment style. Well-appointed rooms. Great location. Free WiFi.

Most gay travellers will be familiar with the Somerset’s aparthotel concept. 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 off the edge of our preferred area, but the Old Quarter is within walking distance.
