On the way to Hanoi and on the way back home, we stayed at this hotel. We had a stopover of 9 hours. Having this hotel in the terminal is so convenient. You lose no time on cutoms or collecting luggage. Check in was easy and the rooms are very nice. Having a view of the airplanes is quite unique. The rooms have everything you need. The shower is awesome, I wonder if it is attached to the fire hydrant as it is very powerful. Exactly what you need after hours in a plane.
If you stay more than 6 hours you can be charged extra but that seems to be quite arbitrary.
It would be good if the hotel would communicate that you don't need to collect your luggage or go through customs. It isn't too clear. At check in in Perth we needed to ask if we had to collect our luggage or not. So that should be more clarified to customers. Now that we know though, we are sure to use this hotel again. I surely recommend this to anyone I talk to.
