If you’re looking for a relaxing, comfortable place to stay in Hanoi then the small, boutique Cinnamon Cathedral Hotel is a great choice. Located right in the heart of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, this charming hotel is perfectly placed to explore the best bits of the city, yet it’s relaxing surroundings and quiet, luxury rooms ensure that you can escape the craziness of the city whenever you need to!
Why does the Cinnamon Hotel Make Our List?
The Cinnamon Cathedral Hotel is located right next to St. Joseph’s Cathedral in the Old Quarter, just 10 minutes walk to Hoan Kiem Lake and the famous Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. For transport in and out, you’re only a 10-minute drive from the railway station where you can hop on a train and continue your adventures in Vietnam or 45 minutes from Noi Bai International Airport. (Some of the rooms offer superb views of the cathedral.)
Fancy trying the traditional Vietnamese breakfast, pho bo (beef noodle soup)? Or do you prefer fruit and yoghurt or omelette and toast to start your day? Whatever you fancy, the Mint Café has a great selection of Vietnamese and Western dishes. A must-try is the creamy and delicious Vietnamese ‘egg coffee’ – your coffee and eggs in one!
The staff at the Cinnamon Cathedral Hotel really make this place what it is. From the moment that you arrive, you are greeted with smiles and tips for your stay in Hanoi. They’ll give you a map and a list of recommended restaurants and a very handy list of Vietnamese vocab which will help you get by in the city (if you can pronounce the words that is!). The staff here are so helpful and can arrange onward travel, tours, trips to Halong Bay, cooking classes and anything you need. The desk is open 24 hours for those arriving late.
The Cosy, Comfortable Rooms
You’ll feel right at home staying in one of the Cinnamon’s beautifully designed rooms with huge bed, spacious bathroom (with bath!) and private balcony.
