Best & Worst Airports Survey
In this section you will find traveller airport reviews as well as our Hanoi Airport Guide with info on WiFi, lounges, facilities and services....and yes, even the names of some airport hotels in case you decide that sleeping in the airport is not for you!
Don't bother, it's equivalent to what most other countries call a bus station. - Dan

The other review was right... It's just like a bus station!
Our taxi dropped us off in the middle of the road next to the airport and it took us about half an hour to find the Malaysia Airlines desk in the midst of all the Vietnam Airlines desks and staff. We asked someone at another desk but she wouldn't help us even though she actually spoke fluent English (rare!).
The Vietnam Airlines staff member who actually checked us in laughed in our face because she didn't know where Adelaide is (yes, where I'm from!) and she couldn't say it either.
Found one poxy book stall but all the books were in Vietnamese; found an expensive fast food place on the 2nd floor which served the best burger in Vietnam (not hard!) - and yes i cannot complain because i know burgers are not traditional Vietnamese food - and tried to charge us twice for each item.
Seats were cold steel and staff took ages to let us board. However, they were still better than the Malaysia Airlines staff, who are supposed to be the best!
