A small and friendly guesthouse located in the heart of Hanoi's Old Quarter.
Our homestay has just four rooms, each with its own bathroom, color cable TV, air-con and heating, towels & linens. A good breakfast is always included.
Pham and his wife Huong have been the nicest to us! They are welcoming, smiling, generous and ready to help you for anything you need. As the room wasn't ready when we arrived, they proposed us to stay at Huong's sister's Hotel which is 200m away and was very correct and quiet. The homestay is in the oldtown so many things to see around and easily accessible. We have shared vietnamese dinner one night with the family and other guests and we enjoyed it! As we had trips to the Along bay and sapa planned, we could let our big backpack in the hotel several times which was very convenient. Really excellent , I recommend them without hesitation !
Great place in Old Town. Clean room and a/c worked. Cooked Vietnamese dinner for everyone one night. Met great group of other travelers. Great location. Saved Monet by not taking an $18 cab from airport. Took local bus for 35 cents and had an adventure. Worth it. Excellent hostess.
Pham and his wife Perfume truly went out of their way to make my stay with them as comfortable as possible. I ate with the family and other guests some of the most delicious food and Perfume made sure there was plenty vegetarian options for me. The room had everything you need including very hot water and clean bedding and towels.
This was a perfect place to stay in Vietnam and I was able to prepare the rest of my trip using their knowledge and experience of the country. They even dropped me off at the train station for no extra charge, gave me wonderful coffee everyday and left me with many fond memories of Hanoi. This was my first time in Vietnam and I can't thank them enough for helping me get into the local way of life.
We saw Pham's wife, very nice. The room at the 1st floor was quite noisy and offered the minimum: 1 bed, 1 toilet with a hole in the wall as a shower. The place is "roots" but it worth the price… Very good area, in the central & historical Hanoi.
First, I want to say that I love Hanoi! This was my first trip to Viet Nam and my stay at Vietfamily Homestay was like moving in with a local family. I saw the children doing their homework, eating together with the family and other travelers, neighborhood people dropping in; it's an experience you can't get on any tour or in a "new" hotel. The building is a style special to Hanoi; tall and narrow- four floors with only one room on each floor and a narrow stair case winding up the side. The first half of my Hanoi trip I stayed in a lovely hotel that could have been in any city in the world. The second half I decided to try something totally different. At first the home stay reminded me of places I stayed as a young traveler twenty years ago and I thought maybe I wanted the predictability of my old hotel, but in a very short time, after the yummy Vietnamese coffee and talking with my hostess Perfume (her English is fantastic) my sense of why I love traveling was reawakened. Each traveler at the home stay had adventures to share. It was a fantastic mix of guests ranging in age from 21 to 60, we shared stories, laughs and drinks together with our hosts.
The family was incredibly generous with food and snacks. I ate homemade spring rolls, perfect banana crepes and a typical family dinner. Breakfast was listed as included, and so at the end of my stay when I wanted to settle up for other snacks and food I was shocked when Perfume said " oh no, thats included too". So generous and always a smile! I'll just end by saying if you want a 100 percent authentic Vietnamese experience and one you won't forget than spend a few days with the Pham family.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
