Multiple Little Hanoi Hotels?

Posted by morgiane on 22/7/2011 at 04:42

Hi all,

I'm planning a trip for the end of the year to Vietnam and was looking at Little Hanoi Hotel as a place to stay. However, in google searches i'm coming up with multiple Little Hanoi Hotels. Am I right in thinking there are copycats leveraging the original Little Hanoi Hotel name? I see two websites: http://littlehanoihostel.com and http://littlehanoihotel.com (And is the recommended one the one located at 48 Hang ga street?)

Thank you!

They could be sister hotels, like the "Sunrise Hotel in Hanoi ". There is a sister (same owner) hotel of the same name but with a number on the end like "Sunrise Hotel in Hanoi 2".

Or they could be non-related altogether.

Yeah, copyright/patent laws are pretty much non-existent in Vietnam.

I think "Lucky" holds the record - one street alone has about 6 Lucky hotels!

Posted from within Vietnam.

The Little Hanoi Hotel referenced at www.littlehanoihostel.com is the one positively reviewed on TF on Hang Ga Street. They also have a hostel by Hoan Kiem Lake.

www.littlehanoihotel.com owns 4 'hotels' located around St Joseph's Cathedral. They're pretty basic from what I recall.
