About this listing
Daluva Home - boutique apartment.
Daluva Home is a one-bedroom boutique fully serviced penthouse apartment. Stylishly appointed and located in the trendy and chic West Lake area of Hanoi Viet Nam.
As far as we know there is no place like Daluva Home in all of Vietnam. It is like your own private home, but with all the services you'd expect from a highly rated hotel. We are situated in the calm and walkable West Lake neighborhood, about 10 minutes by taxi from the noisy, busy, bustling Old Quarter.
Right under Daluva Home is Daluva Restaurant and Bar, one of Hanoi's most innovative restaurants with the best cocktails in Vietnam.
We have many repeat guests and referrals, especially from the people who are on business, or are in need of a relaxing stay after traveling around Asia or working in the region.
The apartment is appointed with every comfort of home: it is luxurious, but not fussy; modern but not sterile. It is an older building, as such it has some character, but this adds to its charm.
Your host: Shahar (Shay)
We supply our guests with a cell phone equipped with a local number, so we can give you assistance wherever you are in Hanoi.
Whether you need a taxi, help with translation at a local shop or any other need, we'll be there for you.
Smoking outside on the large balcony outside please.
Small pets may be OK after discussion with owner.
More than two adults might be possible with discussion.
Shay and his excellent team made our first stay in an often hectic city very relaxed, manageable, and very enjoyable! The space is really more of a B and B than an AirBnB - Shay's team is there to coordinate tours, help with your luggage, and provide you with delicious breakfast before the restaurant downstairs (Daluva) even opened. Shay even gave us a comprehensive motor bike tour of the city, which gave us access to foods and experiences that would have been hard to find elsewhere given the language barrier. The restaurant downstairs is absolutely delicious and the staff are hilarious and fun to be around. The apartment is comfortable and spacious with all working amenities and overlooks a somewhat quieter, but fun, quarter of Hanoi. Shay and his team want to be as involved (or uninvolved) with your stay as you'd like, so be sure to let them know if you've already planned your trip and would prefer to stick with arrangements.
Daluva home, Shahar and his staff were exactly as advertised: Fantastic. We were moving to Hanoi and needed a quiet comfortable apartment in a relatively central, child friendly neighborhood. Daluva Home and Tay Ho were perfect for that. The apartment is of a comfortable size and well appointed. It is well furnished and has all of the amenities that one could possibly need. The apartment is above Shahar's classy restaurant, but separated by two floors so you get none of the noise but all of the benefits (yummy food, staff to help if there are any questions or issues, and security). Shahar and his staff were always so willing to help and answer questions at all times and we felt perfectly at home.
Tay Ho is a great area. Its a charming oasis of calm in crazy active Hanoi as it is a few km away from central hanoi right on a beautiful lake. While there are certainly more central areas to stay while in Hanoi (e.g. Old quarter / French quarter, which will put you within walking distance of the sights), we valued the ability to leave the dust, noise and traffic of the old quarter each day and return to Tay Ho for its clean air and relative calm. To be clear, the distances in Hanoi are relatively short. Hanoi central is just a $2 cab ride away. I would stay in this area every time.
Shay and his team are awesome! Very communicative, which we appreciated. We had a fantastic time staying here, and would stay again. Food is great, location is great, listing is great, and we were given great local information on things to do/see while in Hanoi.
What can I say? Daluva Home was an absolute find. What an amazing place to stay at for my short trip in Hanoi.
I come here a lot for work and have always stayed in the old quarter at one of the ***** Hotels. This trip I decided to be different and try something new. Once I decided and contacted Shahar his feedback and response was instantaneous.
The place makes you feel very at home. All of the staff are very helpful, kind and accommodating. The restaurant on the ground floor is top notch. Food is spectacular and the decor very warm and inviting. I was will definitely recommend Daluva Home to my friends and family and to anyone looking for a change while staying in Hanoi. It will give you a sense of actually living here. Located in Westlake with plenty of shopping and local bars and cafe to enjoy all within walking distance. I will be coming back on my next trip. Thanks Shahar!!
Shay is extremely friendly and our stay in Deluva House was a delight. They accommodated us when we requested to stay for an extra night with very short notice due to a hiccup in our trip, and were very helpful when a downpour caused a power outage one night. (apparently common in Hanoi and was fixed quickly. Quite an experience) We will definitely recommend this place!
Great charming little gem in a nice neighbourhood of Hanoi. Also great breakfast and service. Would recommend any days. Thank you Shahar!
We really enjoyed our one night stay here. It's a really cool apartment above Shahar's interesting restaurant. It's in a nice area, West Lake, which is ideal if you perhaps want an escape from the hustle and bustle of the old quarter. It was nicely decorated and had everything we needed, including a comfy bed! Thanks for a lovely stay.
