Visiting Hanoi is not complete without a visit at the Old Quarter's, make sure to stay for the weekend to experience the free market or what is often known as weekend market. Loads of activities happening, shopping opportunities, street food and a lot more.

Great place to Stay, everything within walking distance. Souvenirs, food, shopping , recreation, especially loved the weekends, when the main roads are closed and dedicated to merry making for people:night market ..! Socialize, have fun , dance , sing. Anything you want !
