House Rules

My address is :

In Vietnamese : số nhà 23A, ngõ 149A, Lê Duẩn, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội

In English : house no. 23A, alley no. 149A, Le Duan street, Hoan Kiem district, Hanoi

NOTE: It's NOT dangerous to go deep into an alley in Vietnam, especially ours since it has only one way out.

When you reach the alley 149A of Le Duan street, you will see a sign of a company named Vietwonder, just go straight in for about 100 meters and find house number 23A. Be careful, my place is NOT inside the alley 149C with the hotel Hai Duong

When you arrive in Hanoi, you should buy a Vietnamese sim card in order to contact. If you don't have time, just come to my house and I will choose for you. Let me know what time you will arrive to my house because sometimes I go out.

The best way to come to my house FROM AIRPORT is by taxi, just show them my address but be careful of taxi driver, sometimes they will overcharge you more than normal. In case if you forget your things in the car, you will never receive it back. So better let me order for you a pick up service with reasonable price. They will wait for you inside the airport with your name on board and my address : 23A ngõ 149A tập thể đại học Mỹ thuật, Lê Duẩn. It costs fix price for 18$ or 350.000 VND or 13$ EUR for 5 seats car, you pay them directly in banknotes only (no coins please).

After 9pm the door of alley no.149A sometime closed, actually you could open it if it's not locked. Otherwise, there is another way to come in to my house by going to the alley no. 149K or 149D (NOT 149C with the hotel Hai Duong) This alley always open whole time, so you go inside, turn left, then go directly to the end is alley 149A, turn right go till the end and find my house number 23A. My house is typical Vietnamese style house in the typical alley, have fun and try to find out :-)

No rules :-) Just be nice, clean, polite and quiet. Don't come back to late at night, especially in drunken mood

The wifi names are MikeHomestay and the password is vietnam1

Please smoke outside of the house, or top floor.

Please when you leave the room, turn off the light, fan, water heater and air-conditioner

When you finish your stay, please remember to leave the key on the kitchen table where everyone can see it.

Initially I booked for two nights because I was not sure how the homestay would be but after checking in, I decided to just stay with Mike homestay for all my time in Hanoi I found it to be pleasant and homely. The hosts were friendly and I enjoyed the meals that I shared with the family and the other travellers I met there. Would definitely stay here again. It was a true homestay with access to the kitchen and the laundry services provided. This also included a couple of cats who occasionally like to sing in the middle of the night but that was really a minor inconvenience...

Really nice place to stay, Mike and his family are very welcoming. The house is a bit of a distance away from the old town (around a 45 minute walk) but it is right beside the train station which is very nice when you arrive in the early hours.

The host is a friendly person and recommend us where to eat and visit. He gave us a map and his place is near to many tourist attractions, highly recommended!
