We've stayed at Hanowood homestay twice now - the first time in Dec/Jan when we booked one of the rooms with a shared bathroom, and the second time this month, when we came back to Hanoi with my parents, this time booking two rooms with ensuite bathrooms. Both times were excellent. Though old (which is why you're in the French Quarter in the first place - for the old buildings!) the rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable, and at an unbeatable price for Hanoi.|Hanowood homestay is located off the main road, in an area which is quiet and safe, but also has the advantage of being close to many excellent cafes and restaurants, and in walking distance to major Hanoi attractions.|The service is what really brought us back to Hanowood though. Jack, Tony and Stella are fantastic hosts, so friendly and responsive. They really put the "home" in homestay, greeting us with cups of tea, recommending places to visit, providing us with a list of suggested restaurants (all of which have their own interesting histories and specialities), and they do a superb job of providing services to tourists. You really couldn't ask for a better place to start your Hanoi journey.|After booking with Hanowood, you can organise an airport pickup, buy a SIM card from your hosts, and arrange all tours through them, as they are a travel agency too. It really is a one-stop shop, allowing you a hassle-free arrival, which is especially helpful if this is your first time to Vietnam. While we are usually skeptical of places that offer so many services, we found that we couldn't get a better deal elsewhere - the team at Hanowood regularly negotiated better prices for every tour than we found anywhere else, and got us deals far below the prices you'd pay booking direct. We were so impressed when we booked a day trip for two to Ha Long Bay at the beginning of the year that we booked a longer cruise and another tour through them for all four of us during our second stay. We were especially happy to hear Stella's recommendations about the Ninh Binh area since her family comes from the region.|The rooms have work surfaces and the wifi is reliable enough to use for work or study.|Hanowood is also home to unexpected extras - a free laundry service if you book tours with them, and on two occasions, we were treated to delicious Banh Mi breakfasts during our two-week stay. The staff are always happy to see you and organise everything so quickly, responding to messages night and day.|We will always stay at Hanowood homestay if we come back to Hanoi in future, and we couldn't think of a better place for newcomers to Vietnam to start their journey. Cảm ơn Stella, Tony and Jack!

Good location. We were able to stay in two different rooms and they were clean and comfortable. But the best part is how well they treated us. Stella was really nice, she helped us a lot, giving us all type of recommendations and we were even able to have a traditional Vietnamese breakfast with her. We had a really good time there.
