A Good Value Hanoi Airport Hotel: Review of HAAP Transit Hotel
I recently stayed at this airport and was happy with the experience.
The hotel is a couple of miles from the airport. I called them upon arrival and they sent a car to pick me up for free. On the way back they also provided a free car transfer exactly on time.
It took under ten minutes to get there, but the hotel is in a very local area, so it felt much less sterile than a true airport hotel. It is close enough that you can hear and see aircraft roaring by after takeoff, which could be good or bad according to your taste.
It is still a long way from the city centre, so is a good option if you want to be near the airport, perhaps not great as a base if you wish to stay in Ha Noi for multiple nights.
I was staying in room 266. It was a large room a little reminiscent of an entertainment venue. As well as a comfortable double bed, there was a large area with couch and television.
The bathroom was spacious with a bath, albeit rather a plasticky one, and wall to ceiling windows with curtains.
There was a vase of beautiful fresh flowers in the room.
I couldn’t change the air conditioning and the wifi did not seem to work, although I was able to connect to the wifi connection for another of the hotel’s rooms from my room.
Overall the room afforded a comfortable, restful night’s sleep.
The hotel seems family run and service was friendly. I appreciated the speed and simplicity of checkin compared to what I am used to in Asia.
The hotel serves a wide menu in a restaurant behind it. The breakfast menu consists of tea or coffee, fresh fruit and one of a number of dishes. I had the chicken noodle soup, which was good.
There are also some eating options a few minutes’ walk down the main road on the same side, in the direction of the airport – these are mostly local streetfood options with beer and local food at a good price.
This was an easy hotel to reach from the airport and provided a good place to stay overnight. I liked how local the surrounding area was and the hotel’s normal pricing seems like good value.
