Hong Song lounge in Hanoi (domestic): average

The Hong Song lounge in Hanoi’s domestic terminal offers decent service but is relatively bland, like most of the lounges I’ve visited in Vietnam.

Vietnam Airlines’ Lotus Lounge in Hanoi didn’t thrill me all that much, so I decided to try a second lounge before boarding the plane for Phu Quoc. There are an oddly large number of lounges, most of them dependent on local credit card issuers. Fortunately, one of them was Priority Pass, so I had access to it.

You’ll find at the bottom of the page a summary of the articles about this vacation in Vietnam.

Location of the lounge

The lounge is upstairs, above the boarding gates, accessible via an escalator just after security. This is where all the terminal’s lounges are located.

Access to the lounge

As you can see, it’s available to holders of a number of cards, including the Priority Pass, which is what we’re interested in here.

Lounge layout

The lounge is a single large room overlooking the gates and tarmac.

Neither particularly pretty nor particularly ugly, I still find it less ordinary than the Vietnam Airlines’.

Catering

The buffet features hot and cold dishes, mainly local. There’s also a station where a cook prepares noodles on demand.

Drinks include the traditional softs, tea and coffee, as well as beer.

Nothing exceptional, but it makes a better impression than the Vietnam Airlines lounge, and the quality seems slightly higher.

Facilities

The lounge is equipped with showers.

Atmosphere

Almost full and a little noisy.

Bottom line

A fairly average lounge, but one that does the job. No worse than the neighboring Vietnam Airlines lounge anyway. But the least I can say for now is that I haven’t really been impressed by the lounges I’ve seen in Vietnam so far.
