Church Boutique Hotel: Nha Tho

Church Boutique Hotel: Nha Tho

Contemporary style

More on Hanoi

Church Boutique Hotel on Nha Tho is the original Church Boutique, but is now one of a chain of six in Hanoi. It’s a bit on the pricey side compared to what you can get for your money in terms of space on nearby Hang Trong, but if contemporary styling is to your taste, it’s a good option.

Enough to give you a headache over breakfast.

The hotel is located on Nha Tho, a (hefty) stone’s throw from St Joseph’s Cathedral. Large glass entrance doors – held open by a uniformed doorman – lead into a small reception area adorned with mirrored panels and an impressive chandelier. It’s not cosy but it is welcoming.

Elevator doors decorated with a black and white print of old Hanoi transport you up to the compact, smart rooms, where the “it’s very white and bright” first impressions are reinforced.

Rooms are grouped into four categories, with the standards named after saints, reflecting the name of the hotel and its location. St Augustin is the smallest room, with one double bed and not a lot of space; St Gildas is bigger with twin beds; and St Joseph’s has a street view through large windows.

Compact but attractive.

The heavy use of white and mirrors is an advantage when it comes to the smallest of the rooms; the rooms don’t feel at all claustrophobic, although they do lack storage. Furnishings are starting to get a bit tatty – the trouble with white — but the overall impression is still attractive, enhanced by the black and white prints adorning the walls.

Bathrooms are a highlight. Modern black and white affairs, some are compact, but still squeeze in a large sink, a big-enough shower cubicle and plenty of fluffy white towels.

More black than white.

Behind reception is a huge bar and restaurant area, complete with a non-offensive water feature and plenty of space. The buffet breakfast — included in room rates — is served in this area and it seems they are also trying to tempt in outside diners.

Overall, Church Boutique Hotel is well worth a look in if it’s within your budget, though if you’d prefer more space perhaps check out Golden Lotus or Golden Rice hotels on nearby Hang Trong.
