The Cinnamon Cathedral Hotel offers roomy, airy, bright rooms in an excellent old quarter location next to St Joseph’s Cathedral.

The Cinnamon Cathedral Hotel is right by St Joseph’s Cathedral in the heart of Hanoi, in a delightful tree shaded street. Hoan Kiem Lake, the old quarter and some of Hanoi’s best eating and drinking are a short walk away.


I stayed in this hotel many times in its previous incarnation. It’s since been refurbished and the prices have nearly doubled.

Still, this a great Hanoi location and the spacious rooms, all with windows and balconies have a lot of appeal.

The deluxe rooms are at the back of the building and are 20sqm (avoid the couple of rooms, that at 17sqm are very cramped).

The “suite” rooms are not really suites but they’re generous 30sqm in size and look over the cathedral. You’ll also be listening to the cathedral’s bells ringing at all hours - a nice touch for some, a horror for others.

Shop around as the 2015 prices here for the best rooms place it within striking distance of some of the city’s 5 star hotels.
