Our hosts were amazing and very helpful. Nice family with such helpful advice, we benefited greatly from our experience with them. Would recommend to anyone who wants a true vietnam experience. We enjoyed so much our family dinners and wow what a great cook Hue is. Phong was so very helpful and funny, he gave us lists of good places to eat in the old quarter, helped us call taxis and generally was a superior host.. The stairs were good for us after all the great food we had we needed some exercise.

The whole stay was wonderful - The apartment was spacey and very clean and Phong even provided us with a big stand of drinking water and some bananas.

On top of that he invited us to eat with his family for this incredible feast (there's really no other word) which my boyfriend and I loved. They also have a very tiny dog called SamSam who will love to meet you :)

The apartment got cleaned every two days and the cleaning lady even did our washing for us.

The wifi was fast and reliable and there was a stocked kitchen we did a bit of cooking in. The location is near the lake and you can walk into the old quarter in about 15 minutes - though we weren't ever rushing so it could probably be less time!

Phong went out of his way to help me and even booked me two taxis saving me $10 dollars each time!

The only thing that was an issue was some noisy building work going on outside our window during the stay - I thoroughly reccomend this place and would love to return, but it'd be worth checking if the work is still going on.
