French Quarter

This covers southern Hanoi - everything south of Hoan Kiem Lake, or more specifically, everything south of the road that abuts the southern tip of the lake, marked by the road that is referred to as Trang Thi, Hang Khay and Trang Tien from west to east. It also wraps around the southeast corner of the lake to include the Metropole.

Old Quarter - budget

This covers the area roughly to the north and east of Hoan Kiem Lake, so everything north of Hang Bong, Hang Gai Roads and everything east of the lake. This is the heart of the backpacker district. For more mid-range places, see Old Quarter - midrange.
