I planned to stay for three nights yet stayed only one due to the crowing from a chicken coup behind the homestay. I simply could not sleep and these chickens clearly did not either as the noise was from midnight until morning. They kindly let me change rooms overnight to the first floor and gave me ear plugs but this... More

2 nights in a row now, so I don't think it's a fluke. Some might call this rural/rustic charm; I call it sleepless nights and groggy mornings. Those roosters are a real drag. The homestay itself provides good value. The staff is extremely attentive. The rooms are nicely appointed, but a touch cramped--especially in our bathroom where most average Westerners... More

Dear Traveler, We sincerely apologise you did not enjoy your experience at Hoi An Lemongrass homestay. It is certainly not our intention to give you that impression about your bathroom. We try and help you feel like you are at home. The homestay is a homestay, and so the rooms are a little smaller than you would find in a... More

You were treated like royalty, breakfast 3 choices, the only disadvantage was the stairs on a hot humid day and possibly being a little out of way but bicycles to ride and no problem getting a taxi by staff. Swimming pool just a 2 min walk to sister hotel and lovely meal at night if wanted. Lovely amongst the rice... More

I stayed here for five nights with my brother and we LOVED the place. The guesthouse is very lovely and clean in the middle of rice paddies. The staff were beyond belief friendly and they planned all sorts of spontaneous fun activities, like cooking or kite making. They have free bikes for you to use and breakfast was delicious.

We stayed here over 2 nights. Was very clean, great room, staff were very friendly and tried very hard to help in any way they could. The breakfast was very simple but very good and plenty of it. They also own a hotel just over the rice paddy field which we were invited to use the pool ect. Would recommend... More

We enjoyed our stay in lemongrass guesthouse. Thank you for the very good service and (free) lunch as well. It was the best papaya salad we had in Vietnam! It is a bit far from the centre, but closer to the beach. The pool was stunning and the airport transfer timed well. Nicely situated among cornfields away from all the... More

Dear Traveller! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. We appreciate that you felt our papaya salad was the best one in Viet Nam. Whilst Lemongrass is not in the Hoi An old town, it is ideally located half way between the Old Town and the beaches that this region is famous for. Lemongrass homestay was built... More

I traveled with my boyfriend and stayed at the Lemongrass while he participated in a photography workshop. I had been looking for a small hotel outside the city (but still close enough to get there easily) where I could relax for three days. And this is exactly what I got. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. The room (superior double) was... More
