Lien was a lovely host, she was helpful in arranging taxis into Hanoi city and providing information on interesting places to visit. Her home was secure and comfortable, the room big with a fridge (complete with some treats) and tea/coffee facilities. The shared bathroom was just outside the bedroom door and everything was clean. We would definitely stay with Lien again when visiting Hanoi in the future as the neighbourhood was quiet and friendly. We recommended staying with her should you wish to escape the busy and noisy town centre.
Lien is a super host thats for sure. She has made our trip to hanoi one which we will treasure always. The room is clean, spacious, bright and cheerful. We slept so well in this safe and very quiet neighborhood. Lien made us a wonderful dinner and breakfast . She organized our tours and helped plan our sight seeing. We will truly miss this most generous wonderful lady. We highly recommend staying with lien. We loved it!
I had a great stay at Lien's home. This is a nice place to escape from Hanoi's city buzz, good for relaxing after long day traveling. I have slept well for all 3 nights.The bed and blanket are so comfy :))
The neighborhood area is safe and residential, which is take around 10-15 minutes to Hanoi's old city by Taxi ( cost around 3 USD )
Lien is super nice! :) she is friendly and always respect to guest's privacy. She can help you plan your trip and book all the tour you want. I sent her message asking a lot before I arrive there ,and she gave me a reply promptly.
She prepared yummy breakfast ( even I departed home so early, the meal is always ready for me ) she called for taxi ,organized airport pick up service, and gave me the information about Hanoi.
Before leaving ,she invited me to dinner in a local restaurant in the the city together :) She even prepared snacks and water for me to eat it while waiting for the flight at the airport ! Thank you Lien :)
So If you are looking for a peaceful place to stay in Hanoi with a nice host, this is a good choice!
I spent three days at Lien's place in Long bien and enjoyed every minute. The location is precisely as described: a large room, bright, clean, airy and quiet, and being away from downtown Hanoi is a real treat. It only takes 30 minutes by bus and less by taxi to get to and from the centre and costs very little. The neighbourhood is residential and very safe and peaceful.
There is a bonus here and that is Lien herself. She is an accomplished English speaker, bright and cheerful, with a deep knowledge of Vietnamese history and culture and a passion to share that knowledge. The fact that Lien is a travel agent makes it easy for a guest to get information about Hanoi and to perhaps book a trip or two to other parts of the country. Each morning after a hearty breakfast, I would quiz Lien about Hanoi and Vietnam and those conversations added to the richness of my experience. When I return to Hanoi, I will do my best to stay with her again.
It was one awesome experience stay in Vietnam, hanoi! And it was all thanks to lien for her help in helping me to plan the trip! I didn't had much time to plan for the trip and all I did was to tell lien how I would like my trip to be like and boom an itinerary turn out!
As for the stay under lien's roof, she'll do her best to make you feel at home, even waking up at 5am to cook breakfast for me! That's how wonderful a host she is! Thanks for the stay lien and thanks for the experience in Vietnam once again!
Thanks to Lien!
She gave many trip information to me. so, my trip was easy.
And the room is so clean and comfort.
Also, she made brunch that was so delicious. so thank you.
Lien was a terrific hostess! Definitely over extended herself for us and made us feel completely welcome and comfortable. We booked her place for only a night but ended up staying with her for most of our time in Vietnam. She gave us great tips and information about where to go and how to get there, as well as helped us to book all of our tours to Halong Bay and Sapa.
My friend had gotten sick and Lien even got her medicine. She cooked many meals for us and her food was wonderful!
The room was tidy and comfortable with a tv, refrigerator which she had stocked, clean comfortable bed, and a private bathroom.
She really did make it feel like home. I would recommend Lien for anyone traveling to Vietnam. She truly is the BEST!! Miss her already...

About the Host, Liên
Dear all my guests,
First of all, thank you for coming to Vietnam, a country of long history and rich culture
And welcome all to my home to enjoy a bit nice countryside sense in a noisy and busy Hanoi.
My house was built in early 2010, not for renting out at first until suggestion from my friends, then I started thinking that i need some people for cultural exchange.
Airbnb has helped me in opening my mind and knowing people. I would like to send my sincere thanks to Airbnb for connecting us, being a good bridge so we can access to one another
