This charming and cozy 3-storey house is tucked away down a narrow alley just a few steps from the iconic Sword Lake, which makes it super convenient to get to all must-see attractions of the city yet still ensures a quiet night's sleep. Ideal choice for a large group or extended family traveling together.
Do not book if you expect everything brand new, but it's impossible to find such a spacious house like this right at heart of Hanoi.
CHRISTINA'S IS THE #1 RANKED ACCOMMODATION IN VIETNAM

The alley gate is often locked from 10pm to 6am. But don't you worry as keys will be given to you upon check-in.

We will attend to them as soon as we wake up the next morning.

The best way to navigate the city is on wheels - but just two of them, as they willl allow you to maneuver around the heavy traffic and explore the many small alleys to see the Hanoian's way of life. Grab and taxis are readily available at 13-15k VND per km if you're traveling in large groups or prefer comfort, but they will take some time on the road. Another way is to take advantage of our strategic location and explore on foot - you will come across many hidden gems in this part of the city.
P/S – when you are walking, do keep your belongings safe. Bag snatching and pickpocketing is a big issue in Vietnam unfortunately (especially if you are a tourist) and we don’t want your holiday to be ruined.
Our team provides some of the best food tours and adventures throughout the country via Onetrip while Christina's is also available in Ho Chi Minh City, Nha Trang, Da Lat, Da Nang, Hoi An and Ha Noi. So if you need help planning the trip of a lifetime in Vietnam, just let us know. Just mention that you want a "Magical Trip" and we'll prioritize to make sure you're taken care of.
Our #1 RULE is to treat our home as if it were your own - unless your home resembles that of a college frat house, in which case think of your grandma’s home instead =P With that being said, the following rules are implemented out of necessity in order to ensure everyone’s safety and comfort.
STRICTLY NO SMOKING inside the property. Any signs of smoking inside our property will result in a USD$250 cleaning fee for restoration of our property and availability loss to get the unit ready for our next guests. Additionally, we reserve our rights to ask guests who break our policies to leave immediately without refund.
MUST REGISTER all over-night visitors. This is actually required by the law but is also a good practice to ensure everyone's safety. You will be held completely responsible for any wrongdoing such as causing damage, being negligent (ie: leaving the gate to our home unlocked), and being disrespectful to those around.
NO NEGOTIATION on our price. We believe that our quoted prices are appropriate for the value we bring to our guests.
A SOCIAL ACCOMMODATION. We strive to provide you with a one-of-a-kind experience that is different to what you get at hotels and hostels – something more responsible, more human, and ultimately something more valuable. With that in mind, please do not treat our members or our services like you would at a hotel. If you’re looking for 24/7 room service, we strongly suggest that you book your accommodation elsewhere. But if you’re looking for a chilled out, cozy atmosphere, if you’re looking for a home away from home, then by all means book with us =)
HAVE RESPECT for those around you. All of the rules listed above are simply to encourage our guests to be respectful towards one another and together build a better, more social and more responsible community.
CONSEQUENCES for breaking these rules can unfortunately result in the offender(s) being asked to leave, in addition to providing compensation for losses or damages caused. We will have complete discretion on whether to offer a refund for the unused portion of the reservation. So far we have not asked any guest to leave and we would prefer to keep it that way for as long as we can, so please understand where we’re coming from :)
Other than that, all that is left to say is that we hope you have a wonderful stay and that you will fall in love with this beautiful city.
Lovely three story house nestled in between several local families' homes. Great location near the lake to explore and get around. The honesty fridge is great to save time looking for a mini mart for the essentials. The three bedrooms would be great for a large group or extended family traveling together. There are lots of stairs inside and to get up to the house, so be aware if you might have an issue with that. Check in/out really easy and great communication from the hosts. Some great tips in the local map they provide! Overall great place and great stay.
We can't imagine our family of 5 being any better supported, and located in Hanoi than at this Team Christina's Airbnb home. We were so happy to have stayed there and would gladly do so again as a group or even just a couple.
The home is set back well off the street, and with outstandingly insulted doors and windows we found it unbelievably quiet and relaxing even though we were in the heart of an extremely noisy city. Access through a narrow walkway opening can make it challenging to find the first time, but once you do it will become a treasured Hanoi oasis.
What made this three story space so nice was each floor's bedroom had its own bathroom with independently heated shower water for each. All rooms also had their own air conditioning units too. The third story open space and outside balcony was fantastic. I would wake up early and had full access to the kitchen, or any of the three level open spaces to work while everyone was sleeping and not disturb anyone. We did have the need to do some laundry and the machine was great (drying in humid weather is interesting). The nearby amenities were fantastic, and being right off of Sword Lake was amazing, on the weekends the road surrounding it is closed to vehicles and is a treat.
Tung was our host contact for the Team Christina group and his communication was top notch. We ended up arranging our airport pick-up through his recommended service and it was great. The honesty refrigerator was helpful as we found our travel legs. As we researched things we realized Team Christina's is affiliated with the OneTrip organization and we decided to do two all day tours with OneTrip as well. The experiences were just as amazing as our space turned out to be.
Thank you Tung for putting up with all my questions before and during our stay, you made our family trip to Vietnam fantastic!!!!
