Hanoi Emerald Waters Hotel Trendy: 1-Min Walk From Hoan Kiem Lake, From Only VND550,000 Per Night

Hanoi Emerald Waters Hotel Trendy

Hanoi, especially the Old Quarter, is home to plenty of hotels and guesthouses, but not always budget-friendly and quality ones. For the rate of VND500,000 (~USD21.67) or less per night, you might have to share a dorm bunk in a hostel nestled in a dense and narrow alley with barely enough space for a cab to get through. 

Hunting down a budget-friendly, modern, and amenity-filled hotel with soundproof rooms and a stone’s throw away from Hoan Kiem Lake is like finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. However, we successfully found one. 

Whatever your requirements are, Hanoi Emerald Waters Hotel Trendy is the whole package. 

Location & proximity to a main road

Hanoi Old Quarters street

Among the main problems visitors encounter in Hanoi is accessibility. Many hotels, guest houses, and dorms in the Old Quarter neighborhood are situated inside alleys or narrow streets that are barely accessible by cab.

Most of the time, cab drivers have no choice but to drop you off on the main road closest to your hotel, and have you walk the rest of the way there yourself.

However, this is not the case with Hanoi Emerald Waters Hotel Trendy. Situated on the streetfront of 38 Lo Su Street in Hoan Kiem District, the hotel is easily accessible by vehicle.

This means that upon arrival, you will be conveniently dropped off right at the hotel entrance instead of having to plod your way to your hotel from the main street with tons of luggage.

Proximity and surrounding amenities 

Hoan Kiem lake

On weekend evenings, Hoan Kiem Lake’s banks become pedestrian streets, showcasing unique cultural performances and a vibrant lineup of street food eateries. For this reason, this area usually draws the biggest crowds coming over for festive activities.

Prices for short-term and long-term guests

For the smallest room – Deluxe Junior or Twin Room, the hotel currently charges VND550,000 (~USD23.84) per day at the time of writing, a very rare price to come across in any hotel or guesthouse in the Hanoi Old Quarter neighborhood. The average rate per night even in a homestay nestled in an alley in the area is in the range of VND700,000 and VND800,000 (~USD30.34-USD34.68), while VND550,000 (~USD23.84) per day is the rate you usually expect at a dorm.

The largest room, the Family Suite, is currently priced at VND1,200,000 (~USD52.02) per night, also a surprisingly low price for a hotel room with a city view. According to the hotel staff, the pre-COVID-19 rate for this room type averaged at the VND2,000,000 (~USD86.69) point per night, but has been reduced temporarily due to the economic crisis. 

Due to the adverse economic effects of the COVID-19 crisis, the hotel also offers more reasonable prices for guests who opt for long-term stays. Long-stay tenants, for instance, enjoy a monthly rental rate from VND7,000,000 (~USD303.42) for the smallest room to VND12,000,000 (~USD520.16) for the largest room. 

These costs already include electricity and water bills, daily cleaning, and parking fees. Do note that all prices are subject to future change.

Hotel services include airport pick-up and laundry

Since Noi Bai Airport is 20KM from Hanoi city center where the hotel is located, the hotel also offers pick-up services between the airport and the hotel. For a private and comfortable drive from the airport to the hotel, you’ll pay VND350,000 (~USD15.17). Meanwhile, a hassle-free drive from the hotel back to the airport is VND250,000 (~USD10.84).

To offer guests with a comfortable stay here, the hotel offers laundry services at USD3 (~VND70,000) per KG. All you have to do is dial 0 on your room phone for laundry collection and drop-off at your doorstep, or bring your stuff down to the reception desk.
