Where to Stay in Hanoi, Vietnam

Artisan Lakeview Hotel

A great place to stay if you are looking for some comfort in a nice location close to the Hoan-Kim-Lake.

The Artisan Lakeview Hotel is located in a smaller side street of Hanoi, very close to the lake. The location is great for exploring the surroundings of the old quarter, one of the most attractive neighborhoods in the city. The hotel is nicely decorated and offers three different types of rooms, all including WiFi, air con and a complimentary buffet-style breakfast. The rooms are fabulous and we had a very comfortable stay here. If you do not know where to stay in Hanoi you should consider planning 2-3 days in this hotel to discover what the town has to offer.

  • nice location in the old quarter
  • great rooms and comfortable beds
  • WiFi included – great to get some work done!
  • delicious breakfast included


  • a bit pricey (for Hanoi standards), especially compared to some other hotels/guesthouses around

  • misleading name – not all rooms are facing the lake 😉

Deluxe Rooms (city view) – USD 45-50

Deluxe Rooms (lake view) – USD 55-60

Bottom Line

We enjoyed our stay here and particularly enjoyed the comfortable beds and great breakfast! We spent some nights in other, cheaper hotels around town and wanted to enjoy some more comfort before leaving Hanoi. Definitely recommendable for a short stay if you are on a budget but it’s a great place to relax and settle down before continuing your journey. Bathrooms are nice and everything was very clean and well prepared. The restaurant and cafe across are very nice as well and serve great breakfast but also delicious Vietnamese food. We tried the Pho before leaving and it was delicious!
