We hummed and hawed about listing Guesthouse 32: the location, at the end of an alley, bodes well as through traffic will be light, and the pond alongside makes for a very attractive outlook, but we noticed a chicken coop out back, suggesting a risk of being woken early by cockerels.

Still, given the walls of the homestays are hardly soundproof, that's a risk wherever you stay, so we decided the pros outweighed the possible cons. The guesthouse itself is a standard affair, and is well sign-posted so easy to find. Dinner will set you back 100,000VND.
