“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2013

Thuy made us feel very welcome during our short stay in Hanoi. Our room was huge, with a private bathroom, and the house was away from the hustle and bustle of the main street so we were guaranteed a sound night's sleep. (Very important after a busy day in the city!)

We found it very simple to hop in a taxi to the old town (expect to pay about 100,000VND) or walk if you've got time on your hands and you want to walk through the gardens. We also visited the Hanoi Brewery which is just a few minutes from the house.

Each day Thuy would ensure we had maps, ideas and plans for what to do with our day. I would highly recommend staying at ChezLinhLinh House, especially if you're on a budget as it is great value.

Staying here was like being with close friends. Thuy is such a sweet person. The first night she invited us to have dinner with her parents because it was the end of TET and they made a huge and delicious meal for us and we drank beer and rice wine. The second day she gave our name to a neighbor across the alley who is an English student in university. She then became our private tour guide and the next day we were invited to her house for another great meal. We later went on an excursion to Ninh Binh with her and her friends. Huyan was great.
The room by the way was very comfortable, quiet and clean. We felt like we really got to know local people by staying here. If anyone wants to see the real Vietnam with its wonderful people they should stay here, despite the fact that it is hard to find and a long walk to the center.

Room Tip: Any of the four rooms are fine.

We stayed at Chezlinhlinh House for three nights in October 2012 and booked through airbnb. We had a wonderful stay with Thuy and her husband and wouldn't hesitate in returning the next time we're in Vietnam.

Our room was huge with a large king size bed and adjoining room twin room. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and an excellent size as well.

We arranged an airport pick-up through Thuy which we thought was very reasonable at $20 considering the length of the journey. We arrived in the middle of a typhoon (which was an experience!) and Thuy kindly met us at the car with umbrellas to help us in with our bags - let me just emphasise that i have never seen rain like it! So we were particularly appreciative of her help!

Thuy also served us a delicious breakfast each morning of baguettes or fresh fruit and she also makes THE BEST coffee we had during our two months in Asia..I still dream about it now!

The only slight downside of Chezlinhlinh (and it would by no means stop me from staying there again) is that it is a bit of a walk from the centre of town. Hanoi was the first stop on our Asia itinerary and had it been later in our stay we probably would've just hired scooters, equally we probably wouldn't have been as daunted by it if we'd have been in Asia for longer at that point - but it was a bit of culture shock trying to traverse the incredibly busy road into town when there are no sidewalks!

We got used to it though - and if you're staying would highly recommend taking the shortcut through the Ho Chi Minch Mausoleum grounds - so peaceful compared and cuts out 15 minutes of road walking!

Wouldn't hesitate it staying at Chezlinhlinh House again or recommending it to others. At around $14 a night the service and accommodation was outstanding.

Our stay with Thuy and Lam was everything one can hope for - the most personable and lovely hosts and a great double room that became our oasis in Hanoi. We had a connected double room for us and our kids, which was generous in size and comfort, spotless and with a firm mattress, crisp linen, a nice shower,wifi ....everything one could possibly want. While the house is a little bit away from the centre, the peace and quiet of the neighborhood and the house itself was a very welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi.

Much more important for us than the creature comforts was the fact that both Thuy and Lam are the most professional and personable, caring hosts and simply the nicest people you can ever hope to meet.
Their personal and professional support was outstanding: they lent us a mobile phone, helped us to get a police report when our camera got stolen, made sure we went to the best place for a haircut or massage, ...nothing was ever too much. Also, between them they speak not only Vietnamese but are fluent in French, English and Italian, making communication very easy.
Through their travel agency they arranged some tours for us at very competitive prices and above all they were very intuitive about our needs. We prefer small personal accommodation and tours and they really delivered.

We really loved meeting Thuy and Lam and their lovely girls and if ever we are back in Hanoi we will be staying with them again.

We are a family of four and booked this accommodation through airbnb. The rooms were spacious and clean. We had two connecting rooms with our own bathroom. There was also a small fridge, kettle, air con, tv etc. - beds were really comfy. Our hosts Thuy and Lam were do
hospitable - full of useful info on how to get around, where to go, where to eat and what to eat. They gave us maps and even a mobile phone to use to contact them should we need any advice or translation help. While it is a little pug of the main tourist area, you get z better sense of day to day life for the locals and its only a few dollars by taxi into the old quarter. They also organized a day tour of the city for us and are able to assist with travel and tours all over Vietnam. We would happily stay here again and it is unbelievably great value. Thanks Thuy and Lam!!

During our Holiday in Vietnam(23.11-15.12.2012) We stayed for 6 nights in Lam&Thuy Homestay and I have to say we still miss them. They were very warm,friendly and helpful they even lent us money when we had problems with our banks and gave us vietnamese mobile. Our room was exellent. We travel via their Amo Vietnam Travel and it was really good choice also. We had local guides, pick ups, train tickets, vietnamese mobile.

So if you are looking really good people-friends in Vietnam you MUST stay at ChezLinhLinh House

ps. The girls are gorgeous(especially rabbit-born actress) I miss them very much

Thuy I hope we will visit you again :)

We stayed here for 3 nights from 31 December 2012.

It was great,especially for families. We are travelling with an 8 & 6 year old. Thuy was able to help us with bookings for Ha Long Bay, Sapa, and Ninh Binh. Her recommendations were perfect, eg making sure that we had connecting cabins on the boat in Ha Long Bay.

They went out of their way to make our stay a good one, eg suggesting that we shower at their place in between travel even when we weren't actually spending the night there.
