We are situated in a cosy apartment on the higher floor of one of Hanoi's modern apartment buildings. Within walking distance (or a short uber/grab ride away) to the Old Quarters but outside of the chaotic central hustle and bustle. Not as crowded, this is suitable if you are looking for a less touristy side of Hanoi.

The space

Located in a well-connected, vibrant but quiet neighborhood, it is relatively off your typical Hanoi beaten track. You will find yourself fully immerse in the local scenes.
However, this is not a hostel, guest house, inn or budget hotel. This is our house and what we want to provide is a comfortable and local stay for our guests. We will do our best to provide a warm welcome to everyone who stays with us, available when needed and give your privacy otherwise. So please don't treat us like hotel staff :)

• Time for check-in, check-out can be flexible, if we don't have guests the previous or the next day. Otherwise:
- Check-in time: after 2 PM (Possibly to come and drop your luggage upon arrival - Do check with us first)
- Check-out time: before 12 PM (noon)
(This allows us enough time to clean & prep your space.)

• Minimum stay is 1 night.
- Normal Price: $US 16/person/night (price might subject to change across seasons, charge extra $US 5 after the first guest).

Guest access

• You will have a private room with a queen size bed for two.
• Full access to a separate bathroom entirely for guest use with hot water shower, the kitchen, washing machine and a large screen cable TV in the living room.
• Wi-fi is available and stable throughout the flat.
• Smoking is possible on the balcony with city view of Hanoi.

Interaction with guests

• You will have your own key and total freedom to do your own traveling, interaction is not required.
Otherwise, if my mother and I are not busy with work and study, we will be happy to show you around, cook you a local meal or take you to local (hidden) food stalls for an authentic taste of Hanoi culinary.

Other things to note

☆ We only accept official payment through Airbnb, that means no direct cash payment. This is to ensure the rights and benefits of both the host and guests.

☆ Prices are non-negotiable, as we believe what we offer is the most optimal given the Airbnb market competition in Hanoi, as well as our own resources and exerted efforts. If you stay for more than 7 days, discounts are included in the weekly price.

☆ We can help you arrange tours to Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long, Mai Chau, Sapa or Northeast Vietnam at a reasonable price with reputable services.

Q - Can I have your contact info like phone number, email address, home address, social media contact…?
A - Without official reservation: NO, you cannot. Airbnb is strict on this. Even if I share my contact to you, Airbnb will delete it immediately. So all the communication and reservation shall be done on the Airbnb platform. It is specifically developed to deliver financial security for both parties (guests and hosts). Only AFTER you have made a reservation with us, will both of us be able to exchange our contact details.

Q - How do I get to your place?
A - Direction and house address will be revealed after reservation is successfully made.


• We have had quite a few guests having to cancel their reservation because they did not know that they need a visa in Vietnam or got scammed by some visa website. Therefore, we've sought out trustworthy visa-on-arrival provider (taking zero commission) for your convenience. Please find (URL HIDDEN) if you need help. This is as trustworthy and as good a rate as you can get.
• If you make an official reservation with us, we will provide you with a coupon code that will give you a 20% discount when applying for the visa through their site.

☆ Our most fundamental rule: We hope you treat our house as if it were your own. Unlike Zuckerberg, we hope not to have people who "move fast and break things" at our humble abode.

☆ Sustainability for Planet Earth: Turn off any electrical appliances that you don’t use and before leaving the house.

☆ Do inform us beforehand if you have visitors, but visitors can not stay overnight.

☆ Otherwise, the rest is pretty much common sense as far as residing in a house goes. Be respectful, be responsible and keep clean :)

You must also acknowledge
Potential for noise - Sometimes the building would carry out renovations. Regulations dictate that construction only takes place between 8am-5pm, if there is any.
Some spaces are shared - Kitchen, lounge and dining area. But we aren't home very often and so you won't have to see a lot of us unless you want to interact with us.

Lan's place is absolutely ideal! It's very clean and very comfortable. The location is great as you can easily get to the touristy bits and is in a quieter and less stressful neighbourhood than some of the others in Hanoi. Lan was away whilst I was there but her mother Mrs Tin looked after me very well! And even though Lan was away she still contacted me to make sure everything was ok. Finally, the view of Hanoi from their flat is really cool!! I'd definitely stay here again if I came to Hanoi.

If you're staying in Hanoi, LOOK NO FURTHER!! Lan is a thoughtful, patient, caring host who would gives you any information you need and always try to take the best care of the guest:) although Lan is abroad at the moment but her mom is adorable and you should have no worries about the stay. The location is just a easy walk to the center, away from the backpacking area and you could get a glimpse of the local life. Being in a top floor you could have a decent nice view, especially during the daytime. The room itself is comfy and I totally just felt like home. Also Lan's mother arranged a car to take me to the airport when I asked for it at the last minute, really appreciate that:) Everything was smooth. I totally recommend it!!! Again, Thank you Lan and Lan's mother!

Staying with Lan and Tin was absolutely fantastic. They are both such wonderful and friendly people, with an intense desire to make your stay with them a great one. We spent a lot of time getting to know Lan, and really enjoyed the lengthy conversations we ended up having about all kinds of different things. Hopefully we weren't too demanding of her time, but if we were she certainly didn't show it. It genuinely feels like we've made a new friend, something which we havent found yet in our 2.5 months of travelling the region. As for the apartment, we couldn't fault it. It was just as described, with incredible views, comfortable bed, good wifi, our own bathroom, a kitchen we could use, and a lot of tea! Lan and Tin both helped out with local suggestions and Tin organised our Ha Long Bay trip. Hands down our best stay in Vietnam.

Hey there, TL;DR version: If you want to know if you should book this place, DO IT NOW! You won't regret it! Here's the long version. This was my first trip to Hanoi, and I could not be happier by booking Lan's place. At the time of my trip, Lan was overseas, so her mom Tin took over the mantle of the host, and she could not more perfect. Tin is a warm, lovely, friendly, make-you-feel-at-home kind of person. One step into her house, and it immediately becomes your own. She is that good at making you feel comfortable and welcome. I love everything about her. She gave me a long list of restaurants to check out, and her list did not disappoint. Not even once. We also had a lot of conversations about a lot of things, and she's an awesome conversationalist. I'm telling you, she's an awesome host. On my last day in Hanoi, my flight was at 6:15 p.m., but Tin let me stay at her place 'till 4 p.m. when I left for the airport, without additional fee. All she said was: "Just stay until you have to go. Don't worry about it." If that doesn't scream she's an awesome host, I don't know what does. And the room itself. It was clean, it was tidy, it had an incredible view of Hanoi. For a first-time comer like me, it offered the best introduction to the beauty of Hanoi. Trust me, the room will wow you. All in all, I wholeheartedly recommend Lan's place. Doesn't matter if you're a first-time comer to Hanoi, or a frequent traveller to the beautiful capital city. Just do it! Huan

After some years traveling to see (more of) the world, receiving endless kindness and positive experiences from local people, we decided to open up our own space. This is to welcome you worldly travelers to experience our hometown in the most local, convenient way possible. We also hope to pay forward all the kindness and beautiful memories we have had thus far as travelers.

While studying in Hong Kong, I interned my way through some troubled domains of Ghanian, Dutch and Kyrgyzstani development sector. For this while I temporarily moved to Bangkok to gain more experience in my own (regional) back yard. My passion lies in International Development where I hope to bring about positive social impacts to the community, society and ultimately humankind (a bit too ambitious I know).

So on a more fun/light-hearted note, consider your stay at our place a small sustainable social investment. It'd help fund my future studies and solutions for regional as well as local social issues (I'll try my best to live up to my potentials and the support!).
About our family in Hanoi:
Normally it's just me and my mother, Mrs. Tin. We live in our cozy flat up in a modern high-rise building in the middle of Hanoi. Both my mother and I have traveled quite a bit throughout the years and miss traveling while we are home. That's why we always welcome you to our place, hoping to enable you to experience Vietnamese culture and Hanoi's hidden charm as much as we had the chance elsewhere during our globetrotting days! :)
