Hanoi Airport Guide
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!
On 3rd floor there are less announcements and it's a lot calmer in general.
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down of what travellers have reported to us during their time at Hanoi Airport.
What to Expect
- Two terminals - the old T1 houses domestic flights, and gives off a bus station vibe. T2 is brand new, modern, and well-equipped for the international flights. You cannot transfer between T1 and T2 unless you have a visa.
- Flights depart around the clock, so there are always travellers around with many spending the night.
- Travellers report mixed reviews of airport staff; a few have reported being asked for bribes.
- Restaurants close by 11pm.
- Free WiFi is available, but complaints about speed and ease of conncetion exist. See WiFi in the airport guide below.
Where to Sleep
- T2 is the place to sleep, with modern layout and facilities.
- Plenty of chairs though most have armrests.
- T1 is unfortunately not welcoming to guests, overnight or otherwise - facilities are dirty and uncomfortable.
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are sleep pods inside the airport and several hotels near the airport that provide airport transportation. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below for more info.
Good to Know
- Economy class travelers can buy a pass to a couple airport lounge (showers available). See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for location and hours.
