Serviced Apartments in Hanoi

Are you looking for a serviced apartment provider in Hanoi?

In Hanoi, most of the serviced apartment buildings are located near the business districts such as Tay Ho District, Cau Giay, and Hoan Kiem District.

Serviced apartment companies provide a variety of solutions and you should be able to find a suitable one.

In this article, we list 6 serviced apartment companies and compare them according to their rent span, duration of stay, location, amenities, and services.


Benefits of renting a serviced apartment in Hanoi

Most of the serviced apartment companies in Hanoi offer a short-term stay, from 1 day to 30 days, according to the company. Thus, the first obvious benefit is that, if you don’t want to sign a long-term rental contract, a serviced apartment is probably the best solution for you.

Note that, if you decided to commit for more than a month, as also happens in Ho Chi Minh City, you can get up to a 25-50% discount.

Second, serviced apartment companies are often more familiar with the local regulations. For example, Vietnamese landlords might not be aware that foreigners shall register their address to the local police station; however, a serviced apartment company shall be aware of this regulation and register you with the local police by default.

I still recommend you to confirm that the serviced apartment company of your choice will register you at the local police station, just to avoid any problems.

Besides, a reputable serviced apartment company shall provide a clear rental contract in both English and Vietnamese language. This will make your life much easier, in case there are any problems. Further, when you deal with an established company it’s less likely that they will try to keep your deposit without a valid reason.

Serviced apartment rents in Hanoi

In Hanoi, the normal rent in the city center starts from around VND 8,200,000 per month for a studio, and around VND 16,500,000 for a three-bedroom apartment.

Even if it’s possible to find a serviced apartment advertised for similar prices on real estate listings platforms, in most cases, you will have to deal with either a local landlord that owns as little as a single property, or with an agent that manage properties from multiple landlords.

Conversely, if you want to work with a serviced apartment company that owns the whole building and provide most of the benefits we discussed in the previous section of this article, then you might have to pay a price that is at least 20% higher.
