Best (Girl-Friendly) Hotels Near Hanoi Nightlife

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars)
A strategic location to stay near Hanoi nightlife is around the Saint Joseph Cathedral. It is very central, near from all the tourist sites, 200 meters from the airport bus shuttle, 1 kilometers from the train station, and walking distance from 70% of the night spots of the capital.

I was staying in a mid-range family-owned guest house called Hanoi Old Quarter Homestay. The value for money was great (35$ for a large, modern room with double bed), but it is a small property so you don't get a lot of privacy.

The following are also highly recommended (but not girl-friendly - check below):

5-Star and Luxury 
Apricot Hotel: New property in a renovated colonial building, rated 9/10 on Agoda, just in front of Hoàn Kiếm Lake. On its basement, there is a posh gentlemen's club called Playboy Establishment. Price: Starting $120/night on HotelsCombined.

4-Star
The Chi: A boutique hotel with 42 rooms offering great value for money. You can get a double room for only $60 on Booking.com.

3- Star and 2- Star
Church Legend Hotel has small but clean rooms for less than 25$, just behind St Joseph Cathedral.

Budget (under 10$)
There are plenty of backpacker hostels in Hanoi. A few are particularly recommended for party people such as:
Hanoi Backpacker Party Hostel

In both of these, there is a bar in the lobby with cheap beers and a lot of travelers.

Girl-Friendly hotels
You should know that many hotels in Hanoi (or in Vietnam in general) are not girl-friendly or guest friendly. This means that they will not accept if you bring a female guest in the middle of the night if she was not part of the initial booking (and especially if she is Vietnamese).

For instance, among 5-star hotels, the Pan Pacific is not girl-friendly (but the Intercontinental and the Sheraton are OK).

If you can't afford these, I recommend you to choose the A25 budget hotel chain. There are at least 5 of them in Hanoi's city center, and not only they are girl-friendly, they even allow guests to book a room by the hour (short time).

Here is my selection of the best ones:

Near from Ha Tien street (heart of Hanoi's nightlife), rated 7.5/10, $32 for a double room.

100 meters from the Old Quarter, rated 7.6, $33 for a double room. Fast Wifi.

Cheaper property (25$ per night) but at least 10 minutes by taxi from the action.

In between the West Lake and the Old Quarter, rated 8.5/10 and with price of only $26 for a double room.

For all properties, the price for renting a room short time is VND180,000 for 2 hours. More information on their

Hotels with Massage/Spa ++
Some hotels in Hanoi have an in-house massage parlor where extra services are provided. A second advantage with these is that they are naturally girl-friendly.

Fortuna Hotel ($160 per night) is the most reputed with its naughty karaoke (Boss) and its spa (De Palace).

Oasis HotelBaoson Hotel and Hanoi Hotel are cheaper (around $80 per night) and each of them has a spa with happy ending services.

If your budget is really tight, you can go to Windy Hotel ($40 per night).

NOTE: If you book using one of the links above, I will receive a small commission from Agoda. It does not affect the price you pay and it helps me run Jakarta100bars.
