4 Affordable Muslim Friendly Hotels In Hanoi Near The Old Quarter

As a Muslim traveler, have you ever wondered if it's even worth going to Hanoi for a holiday? Do you worry about being in a situation where you arrive at your hotel, only to find out that it is not Muslim friendly, despite claiming that they are? The fact is, not many hotels in Vietnam actually understand what being Halal really is. They do not observe any Muslim practices, nor provide any Muslim friendly amenities. Hence, this has resulted in very awkward and uncomfortable situations for many Muslim travelers. Just as we did with Affordable Muslim Friendly Hotels in Ho Chi Minh, we reached out directly to these hotels, to determine if they do indeed comply with these observances. 

As expected, some of the hotels listed on popular Halal travel websites (as being Muslim friendly) have responded saying that they do not provide any amenities tailored to Muslim guests. If you would like to know which hotels are on the list, do reach out to us privately, as we do not wish to call them out them publicly on our website.

The guidelines we have used are:

  1. Halal food served to guests
  2. Close to Halal restaurants
  3. Qibla direction observed in hotel room
  4. Prayer mats provided to guests
  5. Prayer room provided to guests
  6. Close to mosque
  7. Ramadan related services provided to guests, e.g. provision of dates during the fasting season
  8. Muslim friendly environment, e.g. no serving of alcohol
  9. Muslim friendly surrounding, e.g. no bars in the area
  10. Close to shops selling Muslim products, e.g. clothes and accessories

Disclaimer: At the time of publishing, we have yet to confirm that the equipment used in the preparation of food is Halal.

Based on the guidelines given by Crescent ratings, coupled with our own knowledge of Muslim practices, we present to you our preferred Muslim friendly hotels in Hanoi city, in order of the number of points awarded.  Though not all are Halal, these hotels boast a Muslim friendly and safe surrounding in the Old Quarters, where the Al Noor masjid (mosque), Halal restaurants In Hanoi, and shops selling Muslim products and accessories can be easily found. Furthermore, they are located right in the heart of The Old Quarters and is within range of popular attractions, such as Hoan Kiem lake, Thang long water puppet theatre, and Dong Xuan, Hanoi's largest market.

Hence, in the event that customers require specific Muslim friendly services, e.g. red dates for the Ramadan season or even prayer mats, we can also work with the hotels to provide them.
