I enjoyed my stay at Luan's place. I did not get to spend time with Luan, but his family was friendly and helpful. Luan was also able to help in arranging tours, which was greatly appreciated.The room was nice, and the bed was firm but comfortable and clean. No springs poked me here! Very good value for comfort and friendliness. This is a nice place to stay if you want something more personal than a hotel or entire apartment, but not as close as sharing a living space with the hosts.

I had a fantastic experience during the 5 nights I stayed at Luan's place. From the very beginning when I first got in touch, and throughout my time there, there was very straightforward communication. Either Luan, Huy or Hanh were always there to help out, guide me or answer any questions I had regarding local knowledge, etc. My room was very comfortable and considering it's in the very heart of the Old Quarter, the room was very quite. All round, it was a wonderful experience and I had a great time while staying at Luan's place. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to experience real local family life, stay in the middle of the action, while having some peace and quite over night. Warm regards, Fede

My friends & I was very excited for our Vietnam trip & the experience was made easier & better by Luan & his family. There were very welcoming and helpful. Luan even helped us to arrange our local tours, transportation, introduced us where to eat, and cruise when we went to Hanoi, Sapa & Halong bay! The room & bathroom was spacious, clean and super comfortable. Luan even invited us for dinner & cooked breakfast for us. Overall our Vietnam trip wouldn't be wonderful without Luan & family's hospitality.

Dear all,
My name is Luan, I have worked for 10 years as local guide, and I travelled in many places especially in Vietnam. My biggest dream is to travel all over the world and be able to share my great knowledge about Vietnam. With my family, we decided to support each other and open Hanoi Old Quarter Homestay.
My main objectives was to include what the travellers want the most which is experiencing the authentic Vietnamese life and exploring local activities. Today, I consider that the authentic Vietnamese life has become quite rare. Whenever or wherever you travel you all want discover new customs and learn more about a culture. So this inspired me to the host and share my home with the travellers from all over the world.

=== MY FAMILY ===
Hanoi Old Quarter Homestay opened as the interfering cultural place to connect friends with new friends. The homestay couldn’t be more authentic without my family, all raised and born in Hanoi. As a longstanding Vietnamese tradition, my family includes three generations:
Me and my wife Nguyen Nhu Quynh (Name of the flower which only hatch in midnight of the lunar new year) – She works as the official staff. She also can speak Chinese because she lived in Shanghai for 3 years. We have a 20 month-old son together, his name is Do Truong An (Peaceful forever).
Nguyen Do Khai – My younger brother – a high school student.
Nguyen Viet Thuy – My father – He is a retired cook. He can help you with the Traditional Vietnamese Food with an authentic taste. If you want to learn how to cook some tasty Vietnamese dishes or enjoy a family dinner, feel free to inform me in advance then we can prepare the dinner for you.
Finally, my mother Do Ngoc Lan also the Housekeeping Executive – She has been working in three star and four star hotel for 15 years. So you can feel the cleanness, comfort and relaxation at my home.

My home is located in the Old quarter, the heart of Hanoi, surrounded by good restaurants and shops, in green, quiet streets within walking distance of Hoan Kiem Lake which is the perfect environment to enjoy your holidays.
The cosy rooms are lovely decorated with air-conditioning. Some of the rooms have a balcony with a nice view of the Old Quarter streets. The others rooms are located in the back of the building, which guarantees you a relaxing and quiet night.

I have been working in tourism industry for 10 years. Traveling all around my country from the north to the south, experiencing all the local culture and authentic places of Vietnam.
Each year, I help more than 1000 guests who became my friends later to experience d the authentic places and real landscapes of Vietnam.
I always offer the best rates guaranteed. I have not had the working office or company. So I do not have to pay the government tax or operating fee. Moreover, I have the good relationship with all the hotel owners or tour suppliers. That is why I can offer not only the best local knowledge but the best rates also.
In order to make our own brand, I have created Local Tours Vietnam.
