... and again Hanoi Aiport to CityLP suggests to take the Vtn. Airlines bus directly from the Vtn.airlines office when goin to the airport. So I assume I can get the Vtn. airlines bus from the airport to the Vtn.airlines office when coming from the airport.
But where on the airport do this bus leave? How to recognize the right bus?
And if taking the public bus No 17 to the Long Bien Bus station, where can I get off if I want to go to the Hoan Kiem lake area?
And if I can´t get off before the Long Bien bus station, how can I get from there to the Hoan Kiem lake area? Is it far to walk?
I`ll arrive quite early in the morning coming from BKK.

3Frist, a taxi from the airport will be $15-$16USD, not $10USD.
Second, the Long Bien bus station is near the NE corner of the Old Quarter, not an unreasonable walk to many hotels.
Third, the Vietnam Airways van is right out front where you exit the arrivals area, hard to miss. In the past the van would take to your hotel, but there were stories about people being taken to the wrong hotel, so the driver could get a commission. Just insist on going to your hotel no matter what they try to tell you.

5JJ CMB is right- a cab's over 300,000VND. Most OPs are not in the cab market!
Hanoi cabbies are ripoffs anyway!

8Yes some taxis in Hanoi are hassle, we got i one told the driver where to go to our Hotel, after a while he kept saying I will take to this Hotel, I said we already have a Hotel etc. he kept insisting we went to this other one, so we said no and in the end he stopped and we got out.
I would take the bus or Airline bus.

10while in Hanoi make sure that you look at the meter before getting in. At night most cab jack up their price to 20,000 VND. The legit ones are around 10 to 14,000. Go with Hanoi Tourist Group or Mailinh (all green cab)
