I have a new family in Hanoi! This was such a wonderful place to stay on my first visit to this beautiful city. They greeted me when I arrived by taxi and immediately took care of me as if I were a part of the family and had been living with them for years. Always smiling and laughing, Perfume is the best host. She fed me delicious breakfast every morning, snacks during the day and dinner in the evening with family and friends. They always had nice friends hanging out and it was great to meet and talk with all of them. She even asked her friend Maria to take me to a show on her motorbike across town! So nice. She always made sure everything was good with me, getting me a taxi when i needed it or a nice cold beer. Her husband Binh took me out to some street food with his friend and we had some rice wine together like old friends. Their kids are super cute and everyone was so kind. I felt lucky to stay there. People who had stayed there in the past kept stopping by and now I know why. I'll be doing the same next time I go back to Hanoi......I think I want to move there!
Thanks for everything, Eric
Perfume was a warm, welcoming host who greeted me with banana pancakes and coffee when I arrived from my long flight. Great place to stay in a central location in the old quarter, close to everything.
If you go to Hanoi, you have to go there! I am travelling in Asia for 2 months with my brother, and we stay by Perfume fast 1 week :) one of the best time in Asia!
Perfume is a LOVELY person with a big heart. She took care of us like our mama :))) she had help us for excursions (very nice propositions, halong Bay and Ba Be lake), bring us to the bus, cook like a boss :), and always with the smile :) a Big up for Maria, too! A lovely girl, still happy, like a sunshine! :)
The accommodation is perfect, in old quarter. The room is clean and confortable. The food is delicious :)
THANKS FOR ALL!

Idéalement situé. Perfume fait tourner la boutique avec une grande gentillesse. Elle sait créer l'atmosphère qui permet aux invités de tisser des liens. Pham s'occupe de la partie excursions; il y a beaucoup de possibilités.
We stayed two nights at vietfamily homestay, mostly run by the amazing Perfume. The room was ok, not the best ever but for us good enough. The bed was hard, my boyfriend didn't mind, and I had a good night of sleep, but I rather had a somewhat bigger matrass. The family is great, the location is great, the fellow travellers we're great and the provided breakfast and diner were really good. We defenitely enjoyed our stay and we would recommend it to others. If we return to Hanoi, for sure we will stay at this place.
We arrived at 7:30pm and the owner told us that the room we booked and paid for 2 days is occupied - after 10 minutes of stressful talk she organized her sister's hotel room around the corner for us which we thought it was for 2 days. No it wasn't. Next day we had to pack and move out and stayed the second night in small room with unpleasant odor (as pictured). Not recommended.
The location is in the old town and it's close to all shops, food etc.
We had a wonderful experience with a VERY welcoming family! The food was amazing, the village was quiet and cute and many activities were offered to us. Beautiful land!
We had an amazing time staying with Pham's family, who were so welcoming. Although only able to stay for one night, they cooked us an amazing dinner (the best we have had in Vietnam so far!), with home-made rice wine, and later invited some people from the village to show us traditional dance! We were overwhelmed by their kindness and hospitality. The next morning, Pham's brother took us on a long walk through the village, which was beautiful. A really novel experience away from other home-stays and guest-houses. We hope the village stays this way! We would recommend this homestay to everyone.
Perfume was warm and friendly and tried to help us with advise on what to do or see. The first day the room was not ready when i arrived. However, they put us up at another hotel at another deluxe room which was better than the room we had booked. She did not charge us for this upgrade. She helped keep our bags while we went for the halongbay overnight cruise. However, when we came back, the room that we stayed in was a little shabbier than.shown in the pictures. We didnt mind as it was just for one night and the breakfast was very good and convenience of location made up for the rest.
She also helped to get my broken shoe fixed and arranged a city tour on bikes for us, which was overpriced and not satisfactory. The driver was supposedly also a guide for which we were charged, though one of them couldnt speak english and both of them did not know any history or culture about the places we went to. They just drove us around.
One of the drivers vanished when we went shopping and we were asked to find our own way back. The driving was also dangerous as my bike bumped into other vehicles a couple of times.
Its a great place to stay and meet other travellers if you are not in a rushed pace like we were in.
Perfume was the perfect host, so accommodating & made us feel very welcome. Of the 3 places we stayed we enjoyed her the most & the wonderful meals she cooked for us. They arranged pick-up & drop off at the airport for us. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality & the gifts.
