La Siesta Classic Ma May


Rising over the rooftops of the Old Quarter, La Siesta’s original Hanoi hotel stands out from the crowd. This sophisticated, mid-city boutique hits the sweet spot with a delicate balance of homeliness and indulgence. Stepping in from the bustling street there’s an immediate sense of warmth, combined with a classically-understated elegance and contemporary finish - dark woods against bold black and white, with photo-ready pops of rich colour.

Certain distinctive details make it stand out: deep chairs and stylish coffee tables by wide windows carve out relaxing areas for gazing over the city; spiral staircases lead to cosy-yet-bright upper duplex rooms, ideal for a family stay; the sky bar transforms from a peaceful, late afternoon roof garden to an energetic night-time space. However you’re planning to spend your time in Hanoi, a stay at the La Siesta Classic Ma May is a chance to rebalance and recalibrate.


In a convenient spot in the heart of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, just a short walk from the picturesque banks of Hoan Kiem Lake and within easy reach of many of the city’s sights.

Location, location, location…

La Siesta’s prime spot in Hanoi’s Old Quarter plunges you straight into the heart and soul of the city. Scooters weave between people and around narrow corners; rainbow-hued flags and lanterns line streets of shop houses, boutiques and cafes; lush plants hang over the window sills and balconies that rise above the awnings. It’s somewhere that fires all your senses, immersing you in vibrant culture. And it's right on La Siesta’s doorstep.

Wide choice & a warm welcome

Finding a hotel that caters equally well for a range of guest requirements isn’t as common as it might be, but the La Siesta Classic Ma May does just that. The hotel offers compact spaces to rest between city exploring, bright double rooms with terraces overlooking the city, and a range of larger suites and duplexes that are perfect for families and groups, all with an equally stylish finish. None of the options feel like short change, and everyone is catered for with finesse.

What can you do there?

Wake up to coffee on the terrace overlooking the rooftops of Hanoi before heading out to explore the Old Quarter’s winding streets. Sample the city’s distinctive culture, cycle around Hoan Kiem Lake, or simply see some of Hanoi’s highlights, before returning to the hotel to relax. Enjoy a range of cuisines at the onsite restaurant, and perhaps learn to create some Vietnamese dishes at a cookery class, before ending the day with a sunset drink or two at the sky bar.
