Serenity, nostalgia and cleanliness are the first things that you can recognize immediately when you come to our place. Located in the old quarter, The house is designed with minimalism architecture which would bring a sense of comfort and convenience to anyone staying here. The house is in one of the oldest lanes in Hanoi and has been an indispensable part of my family for over 60 years.

Located in one of the most tranquil and time-honored lanes in Hanoi, Trần Home is an ideal, private place in the middle of the city that keeps you away from all of the workaday worries. The room is on the 2rd floor and has been newly renovated yet in the building was built a long time ago. The neighborhood brings you an old Hanoi trace, nostalgic atmosphere with a view to a French colonial architectural building.

Our house is at the end of a deep lane with a big yard, where we and our neighbors living around there share the space with each other. When you first come, you may feel a little bit insecure due to its length but believe me, it’s totally safe because there are a lot of people live there and all of them are nice. Moreover, the lane and yard are only the common space so it’s completely comfortable for you to stay privately at our place.

Highly recommend. I like to think about the feeling you get in places, the atmosphere you get. That's what you remember and that's what helps you to choose whether to come back or not. Khanh's place had it all. Finding it is a little tricky but detailed instructions with pictures are given on how to get there. You have to go through a bar / restaurant / shop place to get there and the staff is aware of the guesthouse / homestay. They were helpful in getting me there too.
First was the welcome. I sent a message to Khanh and he quickly informed his housekeeper that I had arrived. She spoke almost no English, but she was so friendly. I had the complimentary cup of tea before going to my room. We communicated with simple words and gestures and exchanged names. Khanh's mother (grandmother?) was also there and though we never spoke a word minus maybe a quick greeting, she always smiled so big and made me feel so welcome.
The room itself is cozy and definitely smaller than I thought, but again the warmth of the room was really nice. I felt so comfortable there. I spent three nights and by the third night it had become "home". Just coming back from the frantic streets of Hanoi to the room was always a breath of fresh air. The room and building itself is tucked away in the old quarter away from the noise. In my room there was no view from the windows (they just ran up against the next building) but light would still come in and it would make for nice slow mornings. The lamps and lighting in the room are very nice. I'm particular about lighting and the room had a nice bedside lamp where you could control the brightness. The room itself was spotless and clean. My one small point would be that Khanh's rules are a little strict about cleanliness and it can be a little intimidating (fees for not following the rules). I'm sure he has reasons though. Most of the rules aren't difficult though (i.e. no shoes in the room). I didn't use the rooftop balcony but I took a peek. It was quaint and there is a decent view of the old quarter. I'm sure it would be fun with company and maybe a nice drink before heading to bed.
Overall though, I just felt so comfortable at this place and would highly recommend it. Khanh speaks English well and while the rest of the staff and family don't speak English, they are so genuinely kind and welcoming. I would recommend and come back again.
Beyond incredible. For so many reasons. This is THE place to stay in Hanoi. In the center of the old town so you can walk to everything. But far back enough off the main street you can sleep peacefully at night. Khanh is above and beyond helpful with accommodations even with my late arriving flight. Place is pristine clean. Very grateful I chose this place and hope to come back someday.
