Wei and Cathy's home (apartment) was absolutely the best! The room and adjacent living area was much better than described: comfortable, private and quiet. The hosts were gracious and so very helpful, from getting taxis for me to helping me learn how to order food from a local rice noodle shop. 5 stars for this place and this great family!!!!

It was a nice stay with wei's family! The bedroom is on the 2nd floor, u get the entire space, with an independent bathroom and a living room. The shower was working just fine :) Wei speaks very good English, and they were so helpful when I need advices to go around in the city. Strongly recommend to stay!

Highly recommended! Wei and Cathy are great hosts, and their English is excellent. They are always ready to help with whatever questions you might have (although everything you really need to know is contained in, already famous, "Wei's booklet"!) The "private room" advertised is, in fact, two rooms with a great terrace. A wonderful, spacious loft, spotlessly clean. Some reviewers found the shower lacking in pressure, but we thought it was perfectly OK. Safe neighbourhood, 5-mins walk to the frequent bus that takes you to the very center in 20-30 mins. Wi-fi strength is rather weak, but adequate for basic tasks. Thumbs up for this lovely family and their hospitality!

We had a wonderful stay with Wei and his family. It is a bit out of the center but it is not a problem, a bus nearby takes you very quickly to downtown. They were helpful and they can speak english! It makes a big difference. They provide you a very good breakfast and it is also a big difference. Thank you for everything

I only met Wei a few times, as he was busy with work, but he really made me feel welcome in his home. He and his wife Cathy were really caring hosts who helped me in any way they could. From day 1, Cathy really made an effort to help me find my way around the city. She walked me to the bus stop (really close to their apartment) and wrote down all the bus stops I would need any time I asked, both in English and in Chinese. She even took me to a shop when I ran out of dry shampoo! Wei also prepared a little booklet with places he recommended to visit, as well as restaurants to try. I really appreciated that he included vegetarian options =) I didn't really go to any touristy places, so I can't comment on how easy they are to access, but the apartment is in a nice area with restaurants and shops near by, and the bus stop is just a few minutes walk so I'm sure it's not a problem. The place itself is really nice! It looks exactly like the pictures, and is clean. The water pressure in the bathroom was too low to use the shower, but Cathy and Wei offered the main bathroom to me, and the upstairs bathroom is still good for everything else. I definitely recommend staying here! The place is beautiful, but the hosts are what make this listing worth it. All the time Cathy took giving detailed directions making sure I didn't get lost made all the difference! Thanks so much you guys =)

Mr. Wei greeted me at the entrance of his residence, and pointed out how to locate his home should I return late. It is very comfortable and relaxed staying there, being in a apartment complex. The room was better than described, and had own space to relax. The Wei family treated me as a long friend every morning for breakfast, and the evenings I managed to return early. Any questions I had about what to do or where to go, Mr. Wei and his wife were so generous to help me arrange.
