An authentic Vietnamese family home in the heart of Hanoi's bustling Old Quarter, five minutes walk from Hoan Kiem Lake, at the end of a quiet alley. Newly redesigned and redecorated to provide private bedrooms; fully mosquito-screened to maximise natural light and air. Experience the real life of traditional Hanoi and meet our friendly, helpful neighbours in their daily lives. Enjoy the popular Old Quarter then come home for a quiet night's sleep away from the busy streets.
This is a real family home, which we have adapted to suit the needs of our guests. It's located at the end of a quiet alley with no through traffic. Although it's in the heart of Hanoi's busiest tourist area, you can be sure of a good night's sleep away from noise and traffic. At the moment, we are living on the first floor and guests will stay on the second floor. An extra double mattress is available.
Our guests will have a private bedroom, living room and bathroom. They can use the washing machine and drying area. We have a fully equipped kitchen and a small dining room downstairs, which guests are welcome to share.

Our guests are welcome to spend time chatting whenever we are available. Michael usually works late in the evening, but we may be around to have dinner together occasionally. Mai Linh has lived in Hanoi all her life and will be very happy to give advice about how to enjoy the city.
Access to the house is by stairs. There are more stairs leading to the second floor. We can help with moving luggage, but unfortunately it would not be possible to make the house fully accessible.
We will need go through the living room to access the laundry area when guests are out.
The main gate is locked by padlock when everyone is out.
The alley gate is locked at 11pm. Please return before then. If you don't get home on time, please contact us and we will let you in.
Please remove your shoes outside and put on a pair of house slippers.
Please show consideration for our neighbours by respecting the peace and quiet of our alley at night.
Place your used sheets and towels in the laundry basket at the end of your stay.
Our plants will appreciate it if you can find the time to give them some water in the morning or afternoon night to maintain our green places.
