Other Things to Note
I have two apartments in this building. The other is also listed on Airbnb https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2408077
The apartment is in the Best location in Hanoi; a block from Hoan Kiem Lake which is the pedestrian center of the area and easy to walk to every other downtown site.
There is a coffee house in the alley going out to the street and loads of restaurants within a few steps.
At the apartment we were greeted with flowers and a stocked refrigerator and a very helpful and knowledgeable host.
The apartment is just as advertised with a comfortable bed, a working kitchen and a welcomed washing machine.
Dong, and her Australian assistant Narelle, know every street and shop in the city so we felt welcomed and in good hands immediately.
Dong has been a respected travel agent in Hanoi for many years and has an enviable depth of contacts she was happy to share with us.
The large apartment itself is back from the street and a flight up so it is very quiet and has nice light from large windows. The separate bedroom has good light as well and provides a great haven after a day in the hectic city.
We sincerely hope to visit Hanoi again and will definitely stay in this apartment with our friends Dong and Narelle again.
We didn't meet Dong personally, but she had her friend Norelle meet us at arrival. Information was very clear and correct and we were given a cell-phone with contact info to Norelle and Dong in case we needed something. Great service! The department was perfectly located only a few blocks from our conference hotel and close to a variety of restaurants and coffee places. It was quite, clean and as spatious as shown. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.
I thoroughly enjoyed my nearly two weeks in Dong's apartment. Although my flight to Hanoi arrived absurdly and unaccountably early, check-in nevertheless went off without a hitch. The apartment's location is ideal -- within walking distance of most places a visitor will want to see and yet just outside the madness of downtown. Because the apartment is in a building within a courtyard it is very, very quiet. Everything in the apartment works well, although there was some intermittent trouble with the wi-fi, apparently because -- I'm not making this up -- sharks have been biting through the undersea cables that supply much of Vietnam's Internet access. I can hardly blame that on my delightful host.
Great location and Dong is incredibly friendly and helpful. She arranged an airport pickup and drop off and when we pulled up, she had a huge smile on her face. I would highly recommend.
WOW! This was one of the most amazing Air BNB stays ever. Dong & Narrele are by far the most gracious hosts I have ever had the privilege to meet. From booking our day trips and cruise to Ha Long Bay to providing rain jackets when the weather turned, Dong and Narrele went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Dong welcomed us into her home for a great cooking class and even stored our luggage and offered to do our laundry when we went on our cruise. They made us feel like a part of their family and did everything possible to make this an unforgettable trip. We highly recommend staying with Dong, you simply won't regret it.
This listing is run by Dong and her friends Narelle. Dong's apartment is really central, very near to, but not in, old town. The flat is amazingly quiet, since it's down a little alley, and opens onto internal court yards. I really appreciated sleeping well. Hugh bed.
The flat is a bit grotty, featuring problems across much of Asia - eg poor wiring, faded paint-work, and grubbiness eg light switches, the bin...)
There's wifi, and Dong very kindly leant me a laptop. Tours, taxis and a cookery class can be organized, and I felt very well looked after in terms of help with various things including getting a haircut.
I spend two weeks in this appartment and have been very happy. the flat is convenient, well located and quite! Mr Dong was quite friendly. I recommend to stay in her place
