You leave the taxi on a crowded narrow road lined with small shops and eating places, pavements jammed with parked motorbikes. You turn into an alley past the stony faced old lady sitting minding her wares of a dozen bottles of water, say no to the girls offering foot massages at the place just down the alley, glance at the old man on the right making something incomprehensible in a large bucket, hear children chanting in the kindergarten a few yards further on, hear too the bells of nearby St Joseph's Cathedral, go into a dark foyer, use a small elevator to the third floor and there you are. Inside there is a different world. Two large rooms plus a newly tiled bathroom. New fridge, electric cooker and microwave, big TV on the wall, a very fine dining table and set of chairs, lots of storage space.
Wifi works well though the instructions could do with an update. You may need to change server in midstream. Air-conditioning available but I didn't need to test it. Lots of hot water. Not much of a view but you can go out on the balcony and watch the activity in the alley and on Ly Quoc Su Street.
As mentioned in other reviews, Dong and Narelle will take great care of you. They met me outside the apartment late in the evening after arranging an airport pick-up taxi. Narelle provided a neighbourhood tour the next day and saw me off at 5 in the morning when it was time to go home. I was invited to their home. They arranged tours, one with the excellent 'Brian.' The nearby eating places they recommended were really good. There is a Western style supermarket within ten minutes walk, but I found it to be a dismal place. Still, for your bread and eggs and so forth.
The area is decidedly hectic. Not an easy place to walk around. Seemed safe though in other ways. And very few people troubled me with pavement sales pitches.
Don't miss the temple across the road. I almost did.

“Modern apartment located in the heart of Hanoi!”

This was our first destination in our month long trip to Vietnam. Everything went smoothly from the start, with a prompt airport pickup organised by Dong. Dong and Narelle (who, as a native English speaker made communication easy) met us at the apartment upon arrival. They showed us incredible hospitality from the very beginning. Narelle gave us a short but very informative tour of the immediate area.

The apartment is modern and comfortable with all amenities needed.

Pros:
-Clean, comfortable, air-conditioned, TV with western channels
-Fast, reliable Wifi
-Located smack-bang in the middle of Hanoi's old quarter. We never needed a taxi.
-Surrounded by heaps of shops, restaurants, and cafe`s
-Exceptional, helpful & useful hospitality
-Narelle organised and booked ALL of our domestic flights throughout Vietnam (VERY helpful!!!)

Cons:
-On two occasions we awoke to construction workers INSIDE our apartment. (On the second, Dong accompanied the workers). This was a little disappointing (though really, what can you do) as they left dirty boot-prints on our bed-sheets after adjusting the air con unit. We were told there was some light construction happening in the apartments below us but didn't expect to literally wake up to smiling faces inside our apartment (who must have also been given keys to our room, as the door was locked and they strolled inside).
-The noise from the construction below (jackhammers etc)
-Ants. This, as we quickly learned, is something pertinent to Vietnam. Narelle also warned us of this problem (didn't stop us from losing a bread-roll to the vermin, though!)
