Hanoi is the second largest city in Vietnam after Ho Chi Minh. Back in 2009 when I first visited the city I was my first city to be visited in South East Asia. I don’t remember the hotel I have stayed but I remember that I got scammed as in Vietnam. Finding a gay friendly hotel Hanoi is the starting point for 2 main touristic destination in Northern Vietnam – Halong Bay and Sapa – the magnificent rice fields in the north.
As for the gay friendly hotel, after Ho Chi Minh it’s time to explore the best gay friendly hotel Hanoi.
Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is known for its centuries-old architecture and a rich culture with Southeast Asian, Chinese and French influences. At its heart is the chaotic Old Quarter, where the narrow streets are roughly arranged by trade. There are many little temples, including Bach Ma, honoring a legendary horse, plus Đồng Xuân Market, selling household goods and street food.

1. Hanoi Art Boutique Hotel – Gay Friendly Hotel Hanoi
Our first recommendation in Ha Noi for a gay friendly hotel is a popular hotel among all the travellers.
First important this is that the hotel has changed it’s name into Hanoi Trendy Hotel & Spa. It’s the same hotel with the same amazing stuff and facilities.
This extremely affordable hotel is well situated in the heart of the Old Quarter which is where you want to stay to experience the culture of everyday Hanoi. A short walk to the night market, lots of street food, vendors, Hoàn Kiếm Lake, the Hanoi Old Jail, 15 minutes on foot to the train station. The hotel lobby, eating area, and rooms are very nice, comfortable and incredibly clean – the marble walls literally shine.
As for the hotel, rooms are nice and spacious, cleaned and functional.
The breakfast buffet is set for a King. Literally. A standard spread of coffee, teas, juices, croissants, crusty buns, fresh cut pineapples, mango, passion fruit, cereals, toast, spreadable cheeses, yogurts etc. And then they bring you a menu to choose from an array of full breakfast jams like eggs and bacon, omelettes, crepes, pancakes, etc.
Few extra reasons to book Hanoi Trendy Hotel & Spa
– good clean room (with balcony) with a treat of fresh fruit provided each day
– amazing made to order breakfast from an extensive menu included
– arranged for a street food tour for us with pickup from the hotel.

2.La Storia Ruby Hotel Hanoi 3* – Gay Friendly Hotel Hanoi
Or Hanoi Elegance Ruby as you can find it on other websites as T ripadvisor. Don’t know why some hotels in Vietnam do change their names quite often; maybe it has to do with licences or not paying tax to the state.
Our next gay friendly hotel Hanoi we recommend is a 3* hotel is located in Hanoi’s Old Quarter, few minutes’ walk from Hoan Kiem Lake. It features soundproofed rooms fitted with internet-accessible computers. Free WiFi is also provided.
The hotel rooms are great and location was amazing (short walk to lake, food and markets).
The family suite with 2 queens is an absolute joy after two nights in a small and expensive Singapore hotel and the extra space meant we weren’t always in each other’s way. There are plenty of room for all our luggage and personal effects. Breakfast consisted of the typical buffet type choices as well as an a la cart menu to choose from.
There is still a good selection of yoghurt, Asian food, pastries and fruit and other amenities makes the stay very convenient
Our suggestion is to upgrade to the room with balcony.
Would definitely recommend to our gay friends and family and would stay here again in a heartbeat.
