I enjoyed my stay here in the welcoming company of the Luan family. They were very helpful and friendly and invited me to dinner and booked me a wonderful trip to Ha Long Bay on Apricot Tours. I hope to return to stay here one day and highly recommend it to other travellers looking for somewhere central and safe and quiet (not much scooter noise as it's down an alley way).

A great safe and comfortable environment to stay in, especially in such a chaotic city! They will look after you and help you find where you need to go.

Great location for exploring the Old Quarter and the Lakeside and French Quarter. Though the homestay is on a busy street, we were at the back and it was pretty quiet. Luan and his family were lovely, helpful and kept us well fed! His father in law made us dinner one evening and it was delicious. Room was clean, bedsheets were clean, clean towels, great warm shower with shampoo etc provided. We would not hesitate to stay here again

Luan was an incredibly kind host and we were well received. His family was very nice too and helped us all throughout our stay. We ate breakfast with them and dinner one night as well, which was a wonderful experience. If you are looking for a homestay experience in Hanoi, I would highly suggest staying here.

Luans place was amazing. The driver was waiting for us at the airport and Luan was waiting for us at the top of the lane, at 1am. Breakfast made by Luan's dad was amazing and they helped with tips and tours. Very helpful and pleasant. Would definitely recommend and stay again!

The homestay was fantastic! Luan and his family were super helpful in helping us find places to eat, visit, and shop. Their amenities and services were extensive, we got delicious home-made Pho every morning for breakfast, and the dinner we ate was super delicious! We also did our laundry here for pretty cheap, which was really helpful. The location is the absolute best! It's great for solo travelers, as well as student groups and travelers looking for a fun place. It's in the heart of the Old Quarter, which is close to most (if not all) tourist attractions in Hanoi. There are a ton of cafes and restaurants by Luan's place so if you're a coffee lover like me, it's perfect. I highly recommend this place for any travelers looking for a fun, lively place that's close to all the great Hanoi attractions!

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.
