“Lovely houuse, good value and location, bit noisy”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

We stayed for 3 nights in BLan. We gathered thatit is a realtively new homestay as most of the tailors we visited had not heard of the place. We stayed in the Japense room that was very big with good facilities and was at the back of the house with a small balcony overlooking a small garden area at the back of the house. The room was clean and the bathroom nicely modernised. The house is located on a fairly busy road in a local neighbourhood which, in the morning especially, gets noisy despite our room being at the back. There are a couple of items that the owneers/managers need to improve on. It is marketed as a homestay but we didnt really see much of the family and the two ladies that were there most of the time didnt seem overly keen on interacting with us, I am not sure if they were the family or not. On the last night of our stay we had the aircon handset removed from our room whilst we were out during the evening and discovered its absence on our return to the room. The reason given was that it "was broken". Not satisfied with this we asked for "the boss" (who was not staying in the house) to be contacted so that we could retrieve the handset and start the AC so that we could go to sleep as the room gets hot this time of year. The handset was delivered back to the house and was working fine. This was quite a dishonest move and I would encourage the boss to not try and do such things in the future. We had a nice stay and were willing to recommend this place to others but after the incident on the last night we left with a bit of a bad taste.

The traditional Vietnamese house was lovely with lots of character and our room was a nice surprise as the pictures we had seen before hand didn't do it justice! The room was huge with a large bathroom and very clean. It had all the extra's you don't always get such as a fridge, TV, mini bar, kettle, even a dressing gown! It is in a great location, easy to walk to the main area near the river but not above a restaurant/shop as a lot of other accomodation seemed to be on the busier main streets (with all the street vendors!) The owner and the girl who worked there in the daytime were lovely, one of the nicest places we have stayed in our 4 months of travelling! Such good value.

I originally booked two nights, but extended my stay to five days. This homestay is a beautiful stand alone house in a local neighborhood. Amazing location. 5 min stroll and you are old town. The room I had was clean and well decorated with ac plus a beautiful bath.
