This apartment has everything you will need to make your stay in Hanoi a comfortable and enjoyable experience. More than just a place to stay, it will be your home in Hanoi. Price includes electricity, cable tv, wifi and weekly cleaning.
Dong and her helper, Narelle, were the perfect hosts. They met us at the apt on arrival, provided a good selection of items for our breakfast(s) and took us on a very well done walking tour of the neighborhood pointing out good, inexpensive eateries and a supermarket. The apartment was exactly as advertised, if not better. Very comfortable with a couple of English language movie stations on the TV. when I mentioned wanting to find a Bia Hoi spot, Narelle offered to meet us the following day and took us to her favorite. Highly recommended.
That was our third trip to Vietnam and Hanoi, and Dong's place was definitely the best. Everything was perfect: location, the apartment, the airport transfers arranged by Dong, neighborhood, everything. We hopefully be back before too long and we will definitely stay with Dong.
I had a great 5 night stay in Dong's apartment. The location is excellent - extremely central in the middle of the old quarter, but nestled slightly into an alley so that you feel privacy, and secure, and it's peaceful (though not quiet - you can't get quiet in this neighborhood). The apartment is as depicted, it is a nice apartment, clean, very functional with western style well equipped kitchen, bathroom, plenty of hot water, wifi. Even a balcony off the bedroom. Relatively spacious. Nice shared washer/dryer on the ground floor. You step outside into the neighborhood and of course it's chaos, but that's what you've signed up for.
Dong and her partner Narelle were extremely accommodating. Dong is conversant in English, Narelle is a native speaker of English. Communication was excellent throughout and they went out of their way on several occasions to help with the usual tourist concerns. Dong arranges train tickets, homestays in other cities, etc.
Overall very pleased and would be happy to stay here again on my next visit to Hanoi.
Dong's place was an excellent AirBnB experience. Dong was an extremely friendly and helpful host. She helped me settle in when I arrived (showed me where the nearest ATM was, helped me get a SIM card, etc.) and also let me store luggage at her house (and even fed me dinner!) on the day I checked out. The apartment itself is very nice, as advertised. Would highly recommend.
My sister and I vacationed in Hanoi for six nights and deciding to stay at Dong's apartment really made the trip wonderful. Dong and her team helped us with our visas and setting up the tours and activities we wanted to do while in Hanoi. The apartment is in an excellent location, spacious, and very comfortable. When I got sick, both Dong and Narelle were extremely helpful. I would recommend staying at this apartment to anyone looking to visit Hanoi because it will make your vacation more relaxed and more comfortable.
My wife and I have great praise for Dong and her professionalism. She owns a travel agency and has a few apartments for rent. For us she organized pick up and delivery from the airport, an (excellent ) street food tour and a one day trip to Halong Bay. ( We'd strongly recommend that you go to Halong Bay but that you overnight as the mini bus trip is a bumpy four hours each way- and the Bay deserves more that a four hour cruise). Her tours and car service pricing was fair, not the chepest but we were happy to pay a bit of a premium for the assurance of safe and predictable services.
The apartment we rented at was as promised, located in the centre of the city in the middle of a vital neighborhood with all the conveniences including wifi, washing machine and kitchen. We strongly recommend her place as long as you are looking for a more “authentic” experience living with the sights and sounds of neighbors young and old going about their daily lives.
Dong is pleased to help and speaks passable English and her friend, an Australian, is a native English speaker and is also keen to help.
This is a beautiful apartment in an excellent location. It is clean, very well equipped and feels like a home away from home. Dong arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the airport and Narelle was waiting at the apartment with the keys. Dong also has a travel agency which is particularly handy for any traveller arriving in Vietnam for the first time. Dong and Narelle arranged an amazing trip to Ha Long Bay for us and helped us sort out train tickets to continue out journey south. It can be a little confusing to work everything out here and we feel incredibly lucky that we had Dong and Narelle to help us along. We arranged our visa back in the uk before we began travelling and I have since found out it would have been quite a bit cheaper if we'd used Dong's Travel. We had a fantastic stay in Hanoi thanks to Dong and Narelle and we have made some wonderful friends in the process.
