On the shores of the West Lake, close to some of Hanoi’s most incredible attractions, La Belle Vie is perfect for those who want to explore the authentic side of the city. Great local restaurants are on your doorstep, and an easy 25 minute stroll will take you through the bustling Old Quarter, to the famous Night Market and onto the bright lights of Hoam Kiem lake.
This boutique hotel feels far more chic and upmarket than it’s price tag suggests. From the moment you walk into the spacious lobby and are greeted by the immaculately presented staff, you will know that you are staying in affordable luxury. The rooms are small and simple, but beautifully decorated with splashes of yellow and hardwood floors. A small rooftop pool – a rarity in the capital – enjoys beautiful views over the surrounding streets and across the waters of Ho Tay, giving a place of solace to retire from the hubbub of Hanoi’s traffic and crowds.
Make sure you enjoy a cocktail in the cute lobby bar before you head out into the city each evening to explore the rest of Hanoi.
