  • The appartment is great. Very spacious and exactly like the pictures on Airbnb. Very close to the city center, you can easily reach the supermarket, Hoan Kiem, the old quarter, etc. Dong is a great host who always helped us when needed. I would take the appartment anytime again and can only give out my highest recommendation.

  • Recommend staying here when you are in Hanoi

    Pros:
    * Great location! Near tourist sights and good restaurants. If you take a minibus from the airport it lets you out a block from the apartment.
    * Price
    * Washing machine works well
    * Good AC
    * Quiet
    * Good communication from Airbnb hosts. They even left us some eggs and bread in the fridge

    Cons:
    * Water pressure in the shower -- hot water works well, just a little light
    * Bed was a bit hard for us -- but we are American

    All in all recommend this place.

  • Hi Dong and Narelle. Apologies for the delay, but we've been super busy since returning from Hanoi. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you both, and the apartment in Trang Thi was perfect for us! Comfortable, quiet, secure, close to the centre of the old city, and close to the eateries on Ly Quoc Su. So much better than the usual hotel experience! And of course your Hanoi tips and advice, and your help in booking a Halong Bay trip, were gratefully received - the boat and crew were a great recommendation! We really enjoyed just hanging out in Hanoi, it's such a great city - the food and the coffee are sensational. We would love to come back, and we will definitely get in touch if we are lucky enough to arrange another Vietnamese trip.

    Take care, Dave and Mandy

  • We highly recommend the apartment on Trang Thi where we stayed for a month in March/April 2014.

    Not only is the location great (you can basically walk everywhere) and the apartment confortable, but our hosts, Dong and Narelle, were absolutely lovely. Being incredibly helpful and available for us, they contributed to make our stay in Hanoi very smooth and pleasant. Included in the price was a weekly clean-up and laundry, which was a good surprise since we did not expect it. They took us on a tour around the neighbourhood when we arrived to help us get familiar with the surroundings and helped us out with booking tickets. Just a few minutes away from the very pretty Hoan Kiem lake and the St Joseph's Cathedral, the apartment could not be situated better, surrounded by delicious street food stands, little coffee places etc.

    Renting this apartment was one of the best decisions we took for our trip, so we can only warmly recommend it. Many thanks again to our lovely hosts!

  • Dong & Narelle were the perfect hosts.Dong met us at the apartment and had stocked the fridge with supplies to get us going. She also showed us around the neighborhood, got us a sim card for our phone. The apartment is on the edge of the old city and within walking distance to cafes, restaurants and tourist sites.
    Dong certainly made our stay in Hanoi interesting and enjoyable

  • What an AMAZING HOST! We got so lucky when we booked our accommodation to stay with Dong. She and Narelle helped us organise our tours and train tickets and all of the extra bits that we hadn't done before arriving. NOW HERE IS AN INCREDIBLE STORY: On the way back from a tour to Halong Bay, my husband left our backpack at the ferry terminal with our passports and ALL of our money on the ground. We realised this about 2 hours later - as we were transiting back on the tour bus! We had NO money and NO hope! We arrived back in Hanoi and went STRAIGHT to see Dong and Narelle even though we had already checked out and we were not staying the night with them. Dong rang the tour guide and spoke to him, strongly encouraging that he do everything he could to return our bag with our property. Narelle gave us some money and help to calm us down, I WAS FREAKING OUT!! 5 hours later - we got our bag back - the guide had rang a friend and asked him to go have a look for it at the terminal, and then he had picked it up from the guide and brought it back to us!! Everything was in it!! We were so relieved. I truly believe that we wouldn't have gotten our bag back if Dong hadn't called for us and spoken to the guide on our behalf!! Our honeymoon was saved! We both agree that the best decision that we made for our trip to Vietnam was booking the accommodation with Dong and Narelle - and organising our trip through them! Thanks so much guys!! We love you!! xxx Anna and Danny

  • We had a lovely time in Hanoi staying in Dong's cozy apartment. Arriving very early--4 am, we we're let into the apartment immediately for a much needed nap. Throughout our stay we were given amazing advice and help booking tours and seeing the sights. A great place to stay with amazing hosts! Can't wait to come back!

  • I had a very pleasant stay at this apartment, me and my family.
    The location is fantastic.
    The facilities are ok, don't expect too much and you can't be disappointed (everything works well, from the wifi to the washing machine!)
    If you are a bit afraid of the cold, I would recommend not to go there during cold days, there is no central heating system...
    HOWEVER, ms Dong and Narelle have been AMAZING hosts, always ready to help, and that is the nicest part of my stay!

  • Dong is a very friendly and helpful lady. Not preparing for the cold weather in Hanoi in December, i arrived with only a thin jumper. She lent me a Winter Jackett and a scarf. When leaving I forgot my shirt, she contacted me to ask my address in order to send it to me. I would come back to stay at one of her places, if I happen to visit Hanoi again

  • We loved our stay in hanoi. The apartment is huge and as described. It was luxury to have our own whole apartment after several months of tiny hotel rooms. It is in a great, quiet location and easy walking distance from most sights.

    Ms Dong is awesome. She has unstoppable energy and is full of smiles and laughs. She communicated really well and everything went smoothly. She even cooked us lunch several times which was brilliant and so kind and unexpected.

    Aside from the flat Ms Dong runs a travel agency and She arranged our trip to halong bay and other train tickets. The trip was great and good value

    Definitely recommend staying here as a base for exploring hanoi or just speak to Ms Dong to arrange your travel and tours.
