Lien’s apartment is a good choice if you travel to Hanoi. Here are some of their guest reviews:
I loved the location in addition to the clean room. If you go downstairs and turn right, there are lots of good eateries and shops. Further down on Ngo Huyen st, about 6min walk, there is laundry service, lots of travel agencies selling tours and many fellow foreign travelers. Lien and her sister Mai were both very helpful! I downloaded local apps Grab to arrange affordable motorbike rides or cab rides and Foody to check out eateries around me. I highly recommend those two apps in addition to staying with Lien!
I had a nice time in this place. Close to down town. located in the center of the city, very convenient. Ms. Lien is so nice. I want to stay here again.
Lien is an extremely helpful host and has a nice spacious room for her guests. The bathroom is shared and a bit small but the shower was nice and hot! The location is nice because it is not in the hectic old quarter area but it is a short notice ride away from the sightseeing areas and the center of the Old Quarter district. Hanoi is a very noisy city and it was really loud through out the night but it would be loud no matter where you stay as this is just the nature of their urban environment. We had a nice couple days here!
