on my recent trip to Hanoi, i had my virgin stay at an AirBnB room! it was a really pleasant experience i must say!
firstly our host, Liên is extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful. she was prompt in replying my queries before i proceed with booking. she arranged our Sapa & Halong Bay tour and advised us on where to visit in Hanoi, she was a travel journalist for about 10 years and she is now a freelance travel editor, you’re in good hands guys. and my travel partner, Kikilala is afraid of doggies, Liên understandingly kept them (all four of them) in her room whenever we were around. Liên also went extra miles to prepare most of our meals in Hanoi, yummy local (and mostly homecooked) food! she was like our mother in foreign land, making sure we felt right at home with her warm hospitality.
the room is equipped with the basic necessities, plus a refrigerator stocked up with light food and beverages which are complementary! location wise, Old Quarter is about 15 minutes away via bus/taxi. Liên would advise you on the transportation.
we were really happy with the room and host, and the location as well. if any of you are heading to Hanoi and would like to have a closer interaction with the local, you might wanna have a look at the rooms offered by Liên. we stayed at this Great escape – Nice view Room, just in case.
us with the host, Liên.
