I stayed 5 nights at Il Faro, I was amazed to find such a gem. Last time I was in Hanoi I ate at the Italian restaurant downstairs which has an elegant dining salon and outdoor courtyard, so this time around I booked a double deluxe. The B&B is for me a boutique hotel, it's situated in a colonial villa and has an atmosphere which is unique.
I took some photos of the rooms there, each one is different with beautiful furniture, crisp white bed linen and en-suite bathrooms. The staff were very kind and I felt really at home. Besides the continental breakfast included, as is the wi-fi internet, I really enjoyed having the use of the sunny courtyard, as I sat under a shady fruit tree and sent e-mails back home while sipping a glass of wine.
I highly recommend staying here if you're looking for something really special. The prices range from 40 to 70 US per night depending on the type, and well worth the money.
