The Apt. is a 55m2 duplex with 2 bedrooms. It is in Hanoi’s most prestigious, green and safe area. It faces the West Lake and has in its back the City's oldest botanic garden. The house is one of Hanoi's heritage buildings, boasting a fine combination of traditional Vietnamese-Chinese and French colonial architecture. The Apt is newly renovated and fully equipped. From the Apt., Hanoi's most visited monuments and sites are just within a walking distance but it is only 25 minutes to the Airport.

The space

The Apt. is a separate part of a very spacious house therefore guests have their own privacy. The Apt. has one big door, two big windows and several small windows. One of the features that our guests like the most is the House has a big veranda of over 80m2 from where they enjoy the West Lake with some trees stand in the view. There are about a hundred letters "Longevity" in Chinese character carved into the wooden structure that supports the curving roof or molded in the steel work of the House

Guest access

The guests will share with us the staircase leading to our home and their apartment. They also share with us the big veranda of over 60m2 where they can organize out-door BBQ events. They are also welcome to use our big living room which is adjacent to the veranda if they wish to hold a party. We also offer them to use our bathrooms and kitchen in case of need.

Tremendous value for what you get. I've been to Hanoi before, and there are many options. But ngoc has a wonderful place with modern amenities. She is friendly and accommodating. Open and flexible. I highly recommend.

Hospitality is outstanding! Ngoc and her family will always be remembered fondly. And location means you can walk to major museums and to the Old Quarter. Flat was cozy and functional and answered our expectations. Close by you'll find the restaurant Seasons which we enjoyed.

Ngoc's home is amazing! In a great location and very clean with a lot of space. She was so friendly and helpful, she even offered to go to a pharmacy for me when I asked her where to find one. We had a late night flight and she offered to keep our luggage at her house so we could enjoy the city before we left, and even organized a ride for us! Her house is connected by a large patio but you still have a lot of privacy and she is close by if you need assistance. We had a great stay and if we return to Hanoi we would love to stay at her place again.

I stayed there with my wife, my mother-in-law, and my 3 year old son. Ngoc's family are friendly and be helpful. They told us where to find food, how to get to attractions and lent us some kitchen facilities. The home is so nice with new furniture, good location, highly secured. It is easy to get to attractions in Hanoi. But it is not easy to find food nearby. There are only two nice Pho bo shops, one restaurant, and two Bun cha shops nearby. There's no small shops selling water, milk, cookies nearby. We enjoyed the stay a lot and will come back to the house.

The flat is inside a very beautiful old house in a very authentic neighbourhood. Very much worth seeing. Not much choice of restaurants and shops in direct proximity to the house though and the noise from the street can be a bit annoying. But Ngoc and her daughter were very friendly and helpful hosts and the flat is brand new and spotless, very much like in the photos provided. Would definitely recommend!

Response from Ngoc:
Thank you Anna for your Feedbacks. But to be honest, our quarter has a variety of shops and restaurants around. I believe the main problem was time, you and your family didn't have enough time to explore our neighborhood. And once again, thank you for your feedbacks. Sincerely Ngọc

Great place to stay. It feels like a Hotel, in a good way. Ngoc is very kind and there was always free water bottles and beer in the fridge.

Hi everyone,

My name is Ngoc Nguyen. I'm a French teacher but I also speak English fluently. I have a familly of five. Family is the most important thing to me.

One of my hobbies is cooking. I can cook Vietnamese, French and Chinese dishes.

I love music, especially French songs. I often sing with my students.

3 years ago, I had a problem with my back. By my doctor's advice, I started practicing Yoga and it has helped. Since then, yoga has become my favorite activity.

I love travelling. I have been to many provinces in Vietnam, both in the North and the South. I have visited 6 countries in Europe, 5 countries in Asia and 2 countries in North America with my family. I learnt of Airbnb during these travels and believe that Airbnb can help people make friend all around the world.

My motto is: Sharing is Learning.
