I teach Japanese and am looking for private space in Cau Giay or Tay Ho district, Hanoi. I have lessons occasionally so just want to use in short time (2 hours) once a week or 2 weeks. Usually I have lessons just for 2 or 3 people so small space is enough. But hope tables, chairs, wifi, air conditioner are equipped and it is quiet.
