Vietnam: Hanoi La Siesta Hotel Trendy Review (2022)

For someone visiting Hanoi for the first time with the Old Quarter as the center of the itinerary, Hanoi La Siesta Hotel Trendy is a good place to stay at.

The hotel is on a quieter street that’s a five minute walk to the busier streets. It’s walking distance to everything in the Old Quarter you want to look at — including the area where the train passes by.

I booked the Deluxe Room (without window) and it was averaging SGD 30/night which I felt was a steal to stay in a prime location. However, when I got to the hotel, they gave me a room with windows on the top floor. The only gripe was that it was twin beds not a queen. It also came with a welcome note.

The room was clean and the bathroom and shower are separate from each other. The room comes with all the basic necessities of most hotels.

The hotel has a restaurant on the 8th floor but it’s due to reopen only in July 2022 according to the staff I spoke with. There’s also a bar in the basement level called “The Den” but it’s also closed. Hearing that these will open again soon should be good news for the hotel and a sign of Vietnam welcoming tourists again.

Staff were great and very kind. Anne also gave me her number and suggested I reach out to her directly to get the best hotel rates. I noticed that two rooms can be combined to form one larger room so I think this is ideal when I bring the parents to Hanoi sometime in the near future.

Overall, it was a great stay at Hanoi La Siesta Hotel Trendy. This was a no-frills place to stay and did not come with breakfast. But who needs to have breakfast at the hotel when you can just step outside and grab a banh mi at a nearby street. There’s a wonderful coffee shop right next to Trendy called Tranquil Cafe — and there eateries and drinking spots all within five to ten minutes walk.

Hanoi La Siesta Hotel Trendy is at 12 Nguyen Quang Bich Street in Hanoi, Vietnam. I stayed at this hotel in June 2022.
