Tourist area. Most tourists settle in Hanoi in the lake of the Returned Sword (Hoan Kiem Lake), North lake (see tourist district on the map). This place is considered a tourist area, and here are the cheap hotels in the city.
In our opinion, this is the perfect place to stay. Many of the hotels are located from the other side from the lake, but the most part of cheap hotels and guesthouses are located in the North of the lake. In this area you can find as quite a decent mid-priced hotels ($50) and good low-standard hotels from$ 15 for two. You can also find guesthouses (hostels) with space from $4.
The fundamental difference of where to settle in the North of the lake or from the other side of him, no. Here everything is very compact and close, so that, from either side near the Returned Sword lake, you will always be near the center of events. On the other hand, keep in mind that the tourist area North of the lake, especially its most intense part, can not be called clean and quiet. Even if you are located in a clean an expensive hotel, coming out of it you will still end up on the dirty streets, crammed with trade and its waste.
High-class hotels scattered around the city. Several luxury hotels are centered around West lake (Western lake).
