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.

Overview

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.

In Ho Chi Minh City, serviced apartment companies offer a wide range of solutions, and you should then be able to find accommodation that suits your needs.

In this article, we list 7 serviced apartment companies and compare them according to their rent span – both short-term and long-term, minimum duration of stay, location, amenities, and other key factors.

Overview

Benefits of renting a serviced apartment in Ho Chi Minh City

Even though most hotel’s receptionists and waiters can speak good English in Ho Chi Minh City, When it comes to local landlords and agents the situation might be quite different.

Therefore, the first advantage of choosing a serviced apartment is that you will be able to deal with agents and managers that have a good command of the English language.

This is not only important while you are selecting your apartments, but also later on, for instance in case of problems.

Besides, a serviced apartment reputable company shall provide two copies of the rental contract – one in English and one in the Vietnamese language, – and, generally speaking, will not try to keep your deposit without a valid reason, once it’s time to leave the apartments.

Another important point is that in Vietnam all foreigners shall register their address to the local police office.

Now, when you stay in a hotel there is no problem, as hotels register you to the local police by default. When dealing with a serviced apartment company, you will normally be in the same situation, as they deal with a large number of foreign clients, and thus must comply with local regulations.

Conversely, local landlords might not even be aware of such an obligation, which might become a problem for you, especially if you plan to stay in the country for more than a couple of weeks. Continue reading List of Serviced Apartments in Ho Chi Minh City: Our Top 7 Picks
