Hanoi for 5 nights, what do ppl do with hotel bookings?

Hi,

This may be a silly question but we are going to Hanoi for 5 nights (Sept 14-18) with a cruise planned right in the middle of those 5 days.

What should we do in terms of hotel bookings? Do we just book a straight 5 nights with the hotel and forfeit the price of that one night that we will be on the cruise? Or do we book it 2 nights, then go on the cruise, then book another 2 nights when we return. We are travelling very light so will be taking our bags with us when we go on the cruise so there is nothing we need to leave in hanoi.

Thanks

Hi Mish N

Just book the nights you need to stay in Hanoi. The hotels are very used to split bookings even if you had luggage most hotels would store it for you at no cost until your return.

Have a great time Hanoi and Halong Bay are fabulous.

Book 2 nights plus 2 nights for the relevant dates at the same time. The cruise minibus will pick you up from and return you to that hotel.

Not a silly question if you haven't done similar before. The only reason to keep your room for that middle night would be if you did not want the hassle of checking out and in again; and I suspect that is not a good enough reason. I am sure you can find something else to do with the money saved. Enjoy Halong Bay

if you book directly with the hotel via email you can easily do these split bookings and as already mentioned, hotels are used to storing your luggage while you are on Halong Bay or up at Sapa

if that, I think that you should book 4 nights in stead of 5.
