My first experience with Airbnb was when I was looking for our accommodation in Hanoi. The hotels were mostly too expensive for me and so clean and straight that they could have been anywhere in the world. I wanted more: something special, the contact with locals, the real life! The longer I checked the options at Airbnb the harder the decision got! There were so many beautiful and unique places, that I found it very hard to make a decision. The best about sleeping in an Airbnb: The great value for money! You can already rent a beautiful and authentic apartment for around 20 euro! Show me one hotel which offers the same quality for this price! As the options of Airbnb’s in Hanoi are countless, I hope this guide of my top 5 airbnb in Hanoi, Vietnam will help you to choose your right home away from home.

1. Our choice of the top 5 Airbnb in Hanoi, Vietnam: Lola Homestay
Our choice ultimately fell on the Lola Homestay. The many positive reviews and the appealing images of the stylish loft apartment have finally brought us to stay in one of the most beautiful areas in Hanoi for a few days. The loft is beautifully situated in a quiet courtyard, away from the hustle and bustle that is always present in the bustling metropolis. The accommodation was in a very clean condition and well equipped that we lacked nothing (except towels). There is a kitchen with everything you need for cooking, a bath including a hair dryer, shampoo and shower gel, a nice room with TV, gallery and bookshelf behind a small glass with roommates Joey and Chandler the goldfish. Overall, four people could easily sleep here and share the approximately 25 euros per night.
Included is the incredible hospitality of Minh and Chi, who always assisted us throughout our stay with tips and explanations. Questions about the culture, the best place for a delicious Pho and the most beautiful corners of Hanoi were answered with much joy. The contact with the two hosts was very friendly throughout our time in Hanoi and beyond, and we would not book any other accommodation when we return to the Vietnamese capital.
Directly behind the house is the West Lake, which invites to leisurely walks on the shore. Only a few minutes walk from the diplomatic and politician district away, we felt at any time very safe in our accommodation. The neighbourhood of Lola Homestay is very authentic: life takes place on the streets, giving us some new impressions. Here you can find the article. (Soon) Only ten minutes walk and you are right in the middle of the lively Old Quarter, a neighborhood that swarms with shopping facilities and also scores with some bars and cafes! For just a few cents, you can easily go there anytime with an Uber. If you want to get a free ride use my code for your Uber registration: uebyji
2. RuaHouse HMong Hanoi
The RuaHouse HMong in Hanoi is the first accommodation of the RuaHouse Homestay chain in Vietnam. Designed and decorated with a lot of love, the Homestay has a very nice charm. Pine wood, handmade furniture, natural materials and plants make the apartment a really cozy oasis in the urban jungle. The style of the apartment is inspired by the Sapa style. A famous place in Vietnam with French influences that has existed since 1910. At RuaHouse HMong in Hanoi you will find a living room, a small kitchen, a fully equipped bathroom and two bedrooms on 60 square meters. The daily cleaning is included! Around the RuaHouse HMong in Hanoi you will find one restaurant next to the other. For just a few cents, you can enjoy a delicious pho (Vietnamese soup) right next door and watch the daily lives of the Vietnamese neighbours. Absolutely non-touristic and authentic! For the Old Quarter you need 45 minutes on foot, to the Temple of Literature, which you should definitely see only about 20 minutes. If that’s too far, just grab an Uber or Taxi for little money!
Especially the location scores here: The apartment is only a few steps away from Hoan Kiem Lake and the Opera House, where most of the tourist attractions are located. Also nearby is the Xuan Market, the weekend night market, the Water Puppet Theater and Old Town. Despite the proximity to many attractions, the apartment is very quiet. The apartment is characterized by high rooms and a unique design. A bit of industrial flair coupled with Vietnamese influences, always paying attention to the love to detail. A cozy and bright dining area by the window, many plants and a nice bathroom make this apartment one of my favorites! Thanks to the second bed in the gallery, there is room for a total of four guests in the Vintage Decor apartment. The only thing you should remember about this Airbnb in Hanoi: To make yourself comfortable you first have to climb the stairs up to the fifth floor.
4. Cosy Tree House with Pool and Garden
Is living in a simple apartment still too boring for you? How about a tree house? Very central but so far away from the hustle and bustle that you could easily forget being in a bustling city! Perfect for nature lovers, the pretty tree house offers a wonderful view of the 2000 square meter garden that is part of the Airbnb. Two people find space in the light-flooded tree house, in the middle of which is a large queen-size bed. For a good entertainment there are plenty options: Live music evenings, karaoke, movie nights, a nice pool and a restaurant offer plenty of opportunities to pass the time.
Those who manage to break out of this beautiful oasis need only 15 minutes by taxi and are located across the river in the middle of the bustling backpacker district and Old Quarter. The price per taxi is below $ 3! Incidentally, up to 25 people have space in the property and it is certainly not difficult to meet other travelers and share plans and experiences with them during a lovely BBQ. You have your privacy at the latest when you climb into your cozy tree house and listen to the wind in the branches. A good reason that this tree house can’t miss in the top 5 airbnb in Hanoi, Vietnam.
5. La Casa – Sunlight, luxurious studio in the centre of Hanoi
Right in the center of Hanoi you can find La Casa, a really stylish apartment that could become your home during your time in Hanoi. The chic style of this Airbnb convinced me at first glance, so I would like to share this tip with you. A brown leather sofa in front of an industrial grille that serves as a room divider, an open kitchen in the living room, a hammock chair made of bamboo by the large window and many sophisticated details such as special lamps and plants make this Airbnb in Hanoi a real hideaway! The neighborhood is quiet but central. Nearby you will find the Ho Chi Minh Museum and Thao Park Creek. Not far away is the Hoan Kiem Lake. If you do not want to explore the city by yourself, you can also turn to the friendly host, who offers to hang around in Hanoi, if he has time. However, this does not always work, because he describes himself as a globetrotter who loves to travel.
