Let’s head to our beloved capital with cultural sediments, heroic history and beautiful architectural imprints. Furthermore, there is Silk Path Boutique Hanoi – A glimpse of France in the heart of Hanoi.
Located in the heart of the capital, right on the busy Hang Khay street overlooking the historic Hoan Kiem Lake, Silk Path Boutique Hanoi is an interesting harmony for travel enthusiasts because of its unique Asian-European beauty and great facilities.
A street of historical imprints
Hang Khay is a short street about 170m, with only odd-numbered houses because the opposite side is the south bank of Hoan Kiem Lake. In the past, the whole street specialized in wood inlaid pearls, including trays or because all the tools of the mosaic workers from saws, chisels, files, sharpened mussels, paints… all were put in wooden trays, so the street was named “Hang Khay”.
Under the French colonial period, this was one of the first streets opened by the French, the focal point of the Western Quarter in Hanoi. There is a house built at that time that still exists today, house number 3, Hang Khay, and there is the number 1886 on the roof of the building.
After 1945, a great change took place on Hang Khay Street. The street gradually appeared many photo shops, the first one being the International Photo Studio by photographer Phan Xuan Thuy opened in 1946. This is probably due to the neighborhood’s prime location by the Hoan Kiem Lake. Over the decades, Hang Khay Street has become a “photographic street” of Hanoi. Nowadays, traditional photography is gradually giving way to convenient handheld devices, so the photography profession on Hang Khay Street has disappeared.
The transformation of the times has brought many changes, there is only one thing that Hang Khay Street will forever remain unchanged with the times, which is the wonderful scenery of the shore of Hoan Kiem Lake. This is a place where visitors can walk under the hundred-year-old tree branches, zoom in on the iconic works of Hanoi such as Turtle Tower, Ngoc Son Temple, The Huc Bridge, Hanoi Post Office.
Elegant architecture in the heart of the Old Quarters
Inspired by classical French architectural style, Silk Path Boutique Hanoi is built with a monolithic architecture, high ceilings, solemn pillars, skillfully combining luxury beauty and elegance in the balanced proportion and harmony creates an overall aesthetic and delicate vibe.

The unique cultural color is also clearly shown by the statue of 2 noble Greek gods symbolizing power and prosperity placed on the dome, right at the entrance to the hotel bearing the impression of European Renaissance, bringing idealism and deep passion for art.
