Chan is a really good host. He put together a ton of material in the form of guides for Las Vegas. It is obvious that he wants his guests to enjoy their stay. His communication is fast. The house is as described. It is clean and well-kept. The beds have memory foam mattresses and pillows! I loved that. There were bottled waters by the bed and cell phone charges for both droid and iphone. Chan definitely pays attention to the details. Quick and easy route to the strip from his house. For the price, it's hard to beat this room.
My stay with Chan was short but nice. Everything was as advertised and he even gave me a free upgrade to the master bedroom. We got to meet upon my arrival and made me comfortable. Everything is labeled in the house so you don't need to guess at anything. I will definitely stay when my travels bring me back to the Vegas area. Thanks again Chan.
Chan is the perfect host.
The room was spotless and as advertised.
You are feeling welcome and Chan is providing helpful informations via emails, texts and in your room (lot of tips to visit Vegas).
The signage in the house is perfect and Chan is offering everything you need to begin your day with a nice breakfast even noodles if you are feeling a bit hungry during the day.
Quiet neighborhood and with 10 min walk you are able to catch the bus (line 203) to the Strip.
That was a great AirBnb experience and I'd certainly stay there again the next time I visit Las Vegas.
Chan est un hôte parfait.
La chambre était impeccable et tout était conforme à l'annonce.
Vous vous sentez chez vous et Chan fournit des informations utiles via courriels, textes et dans votre chambre (beaucoup de tuyaux utiles pour visiter Las Vegas).
La signalisation dans la maison est parfaite et Chan offre tout ce dont vous avez besoin pour commencer votre journée avec un bon petit déjeuner et même des nouilles si vous avez une petite faim pendant la journée.
Quartier calme et à 10 min de marche vous pouvez prendre le bus (ligne 203) jusqu'au Strip.
Cela a été une très bonne expérience Airbnb et je retournerai certainement chez Chan pour mon prochain séjour à Las Vegas.
It was such a great time to stay Chan's house. The room is really clean and he is really kind. Whenever I ask something about Vegas, he always give me a good tip.
In addition to, today my flight is 7:00 AM. Even though he was tired, he gave me a ride at the airport.
I really appreciate it.
Mr. Lam is a perfect host, even though we only saw each other when I came and when I left- everything was fine. The neighborhood is very convenient- near lots of retail; about a 10 min walk from the Spring Mountain bus to the Strip, a slightly longer walk to the Sahara bus, and a slightly shorter walk to the north-south Decatur bus. Las Vegas has surprisingly good bus service- most of these buses run till midnight or even 24 hours.
I stayed 4 nights in Bedroom 1. Chan's house is lovely. It's in a quiet neighborhood close to the Rio Hotel where I attended a conference over the weekend. Chan and I did not see much of each other, as our schedules did not align, but he was kind enough to upgrade me to Bedroom 1 before my arrival, which I was grateful for. The house was neat and tidy, and he had thought of everything for the room (extra toiletries, etc). There are plenty of great places to eat in the area, including tasty Pho, a Ramen Bar, and Thai Restaurants. This was an awesome AirBnB experience, and I will look forward to staying here again the next time I visit Las Vegas!

About the Host, Chan
American-Chinese who speaks English and some Spanish, Mandarin and Vietnamese. I was in the US Army and served in South Korea, Japan, Germany, Iraq and Kuwait but unfortunately don't speak much of those languages. I'm easy-going but I do like to keep things clean and tidy. My hobbies include eating (especially home-cooking), watching films (DVDs + Netflix is awesome), reading non-fiction (I subscribe to 10+ magazines) and of course seeing family and friends.
