Anise Hotel

Anise Hotel

Great location

More on Hanoi

If you’re after a centrally located modern hotel away from the hubbub of Old Quarter — and in the hubbub of Ba Dinh — Anise Hotel may be for you. Although we weren’t completely wowed by the rooms, its convenient location and facilities make it worth a look.

Travelfish says:

Rooms at Anise are standard modern midrange affairs, kitted out with comfy beds, quality furnishings and the added extras you’d expect at this price, such as a safety deposit box and minibar. The cheapest rooms are windowless and spacious enough, but we’d suggest upgrading to a room with a window. That said, we have heard reports that front-facing rooms get noisy. Only one room has a balcony.

Our main reason for listing Anise is its great location, although the colourful reception, small on-site gym, bright breakfast room and handy bar on the ground floor contribute to its appeal. Anise is located on the northern border of the Old Quarter on Quan Thanh Street. Quan Thanh Street is a one-way thoroughfare running up to West Lake and ending at Quan Thanh Pagoda; at its eastern end it faces Hang Dau Park.

The park is pretty, as Hanoian green spaces go, with trees, a concreted area perfect for badminton and an attractive fountain. At its busiest in the early morning, when exercisers are out in force, it makes for a pleasant view at any time of day.

It’s also a good location to be to easily reach the main attractions of Hanoi. Old Quarter is a short walk to the south, nearby Hang Than and Hoi Nhai are good for street food and Manzi, a new contemporary art gallery-cum-cafe, and 54 Traditions Gallery are close by. It’s also not far to Truc Bach district, West Lake and the Citadel and Memorial Complex. On the same road, nearer to the temple, is Home, one of our recommended cafes to chill out in. Price-wise, the cheapest rooms, which come without a view, are US$48 but you’ll need to jump up to US$60 for a window and US$80 for a park view. You can often pick up a room for less if booking through Agoda.
