Airport to Hanoi City

Price: Range from 300,000 VD – 450,000. Try to negotiate a price, or stick to the meter.
Tip: If you’re staying at a hotel, they’ll often offer shuttle bus or taxi transfers for a good price, so always check first to save a few pennies.
We stayed at Holiday Gold Hotel, a modern yet cheap and cheerful hotel located in the Old Quarter, just a short walk away from the Hoan Kiem Lake. The staff were extremely helpful and made us feel so welcome from arrival, and even allowed early morning check in for no extra charge. They organised taxis and bus and ferry transport us, which was great.
The city is lined with Taxis, Motorbike Taxis, Cyclos and Bicycles, so you’re never short of transport to get you where you want to go.
Escape the hustle and bustle and head up to a rooftop restaurant overlooking the lake. Prices are still low, yet you can enjoy a lovely meal overlooking the city with a little peace and quiet.
