“Best value hotel in Vietnam!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

We were met with smiles and tea with cake! The tone was set for 3 wonderfull days.

The room was nice, and towel swans on the bed made it seem like a 5 star hotel. The beds are great and the room spotless. Good TV with CNN, BBC, HBO, Star Moveis and a few sportschannels. Even Fox Footy could we see.

The room was right next to the lobby, but this is a VERY quiet hotel. Not a sound after 10 pm. The room also had a fridge and ketl (only 3-in-1 coffee).

The breakfast is to die for. Choose anything from the menu yoiu like, and as much you wish. The juice is freshly pressed -. not from a carton. You are also served a fresh fruitplatter. When we got home from sightseeing, we sere served a smoothie. IF you are lucky, you get a mango one - it is a dream. One afternoon, we were also served cookies and tea. We allmost felt shamefull to receive so much.

The staff is the most kind you could dream off. The location is perfect - just 5 minutes walk from the covered bridge.

Only small issue is, that the duvet is just a thin sheat, and that you are not given a full set of towels, and that Wifi was a bit slow. The are computers at the hotel and it is possible to print here.

The hotel was full 2 of the 3 day we were there so book well in advance. the same goes for the more popular restaurants.

For 25 USD, this must be the best value pr. dollar spent hotel in Vietnam...

Stayed 5 nights here, paid $22 per night. For the (very good) features of this hotel, read the other reviews. But to give a little more help, I`ll add: it`s 5 minutes` walk to the ticket booth for the Old City (now 90,000 VND entry); 2 free computers in the lobby; good choice of breakfast options (also free); good sized bathroom with good sized bathtub.

The hotel books train tickets (e.g. SE7 night sleeper Danang - Nha Trang, leaves at 10 pm arrives 7.30am) for a reasonable 50,000 VND fee.

Hotel has 4 floors (no elevator) , 20 rooms, nice communal balcony on the 2nd & 3rd floor.

Rooms at the front of the hotel have a nice view of a Confucian temple & small grounds; the back of the hotel looks onto corrugated iron house roofs. See my Room Tips section for more info.

Room Tip: Choose 2nd or 4th floor, at the front (nice views) of the hotel (1st floor is the lobby - noisy at t...

Spent 3 nights here recently and, while the people are the nicest in the world who really try hard to please, this is Vietnam and all that entails.
Had some initial confusion when we checked in. Arrived on an early a.m. bus and was met by their rep at the bus station who arranged our transport to the hotel. They had our reservation but our room ($20/night) was still occupied by the previous night's guest, which we completely expected. Arranged to leave our bags and go walk the old town for several hours and return to complete check-in later. However when we came back the room we booked was now occupied by someone else but they had moved us to a more expensive room, which was actually nicer than the one we booked. It was fine with us if they moved us to accommodate other guests needs but we weren't going to pay a higher rate. Got that worked out finally.
Was up most of the night by a water pump that clicked off and on every few seconds...absolutely drove us crazy. When I met them at 6 a.m. the next morning after a night of no sleep they were very apologetic; seems the night staff were supposed to turn the pump off every night and had forgotten to that night. Oops but then again, this is Vietnam.
Breakfast was a disappointment. Tables were not cleaned between dinners and the service was very very slow; doesn't help that they have to haul everything up 3 flights of stairs from the kitchen to the 3rd floor dining balcony. Coffee came at the end of the meal instead of the beginning. Greasiest eggs I've ever had in my life,
I still recommend the Hoang Trinh Hotel to everyone I meet going to Hoi An. Just keep in mind this is Vietnam (which means a lower standard of service no matter how much they mean to please) and snafus will definitely happen...unfortunately this prevents me from giving Hoang Trinh the highest rating possible.

Room Tip: Make sure they turn off the water pump at night!

Madam An and her team certainly lived up to all The great reviews on here. My girlfriend and I have just moved on after staying here for 4 nights. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The room was comfortable with air con and fridge (which was regularly topped up with water). Air con was a little noisy but this is quite usual for budget accommodation. Decor a bit dated but this didnt worry us. We paid $22 per night which included great breakfast. Entire hotel was cleaned regularly and room was made up and cleaned every day. Good location, just a few minutes walk to the old town and 5 mins from the river. We spent most evenings enjoying street food and drinks on the rivers edge looking at all the lanterns.

The girl who runs reception knows good enough English to recommend things. She recommended a great cooking course for one morning, and recommended Mickey's tailor for our clothing needs. We ended up with 4 pairs of shoes, 11 shirts, 2 jackets, 2 dresses, 3 pairs of trousers and 1 coat being made. Very happy with everything. We had been waiting for Hoi An for some time to buy clothes. The Hoang Trinh team arranged for the post office to come and pick up some of this to send home to Australia. They also arranged transfer from the airport for $14 which we thought was okay.

As other reviews have said breakfast is great, order what you like and lots of fruit! You can hear the chairs scraping from your room and it's hard to keep the noise down as the restaurant terrace is quite near some rooms, but this is okay if you are not staying in bed all morning.

The great thing about this hotel is the extra touches, the staff really go the extra mile to make your stay a happy one, such as snacks or fresh cold fruit on your return after a days exploring, we also got a gift when we checked out! On our last night Madam An invited us and some other guests to dinner, they layed on a fantastic spread of local food and we drank and ate while chatting to the team.

Highly recommend this hotel. They have now suggested somewhere for us to stay in Hue which sounds great. Go on the cooking course that they recommend if you have the budget, and spend time down at the river sampling all the local food options. We were having 3 snacks a night! We also hired a motorbike for $4 and did the solo mission to My Son. We got a little lost but had a great adventure! In house laundry service too which was useful!

Room Tip: You might not want to be right next to the terrace if you want a late lay in in the morning as you m...

Having read very positive reviews on the Hoang Trinh Hotel, my wife and I booked ahead and were delighted to be collected from the bus station on arrival at Hoi An. As others have reported, we were also welcomed with tea and cakes by smiling, smartly dressed staff who from day one were determined to please. Our double room with a/c was beautifully presented when we arrived and was cleaned daily.

Breakfast was included in the price and we were invited to select from the many restaurant menu options and order as much as we wanted. The fullest breakfasts that we had ever enjoyed whilst travelling.

We were also unexpectedly given 'treats' during the day - fruit smoothies or cakes.

We stayed for five days and enjoyed every minute of the hotel and Hoi An. The Hoang Trinh is in a quiet location with easy access to the old town which is a fascinating place to explore. The beach is a flat 4 km interesting cycle ride away and worth the effort - pay 5000 dong to 'park' the bike securely for the day in the parking area just before you reach the beach. Bikes can be rented for $1 a day just up the main road from the hotel.

The warmth of the hotel staff made our stay in Hoi An extremely pleasant. When we finally had to take our leave we were kindly presented with gifts of a tie and scarf as a reminder of our visit.

The Hoang Trinh ranks as one of the best budget hotels that we have stayed in during a nine week tour of SE Asia. We thoroughly recommend it and look forward to one day returning ourselves.

We stayed in Hoang Trinh for 3 nights paying $22 per night split between two of us. The room has comfortable beds, ensure bathroom, hot water, minibar, tv as well as wifi and internet access.

We were picked up from our bus for free and greeted lovingly with tea and cakes. We were also told our room would be ready at 8 and to our surprise it was done at 8 - very unusual from my experience so far in Asia.

The room included breakfast and it did not disappoint, we were able to pick anything of the menu and as much as we liked - and it came with a complimentary plate of fruit. The staff were always so friendly and even cut us fruit and made us drinks when we were just hanging about in the foyer.

Although our room was situated next to what seemed to be the laundry room and the air con was not the greatest - I loved my stay here and would definitely come back to stay!

I stayed at the Hoang Trinh last year and returned this year for another three night stay. It's a great place to stay. I got a warm welcome from Madame Anh, the owner, and Suong, the receptionist and had a lovely room on the second floor. Lien, the second receptionist was also very friendly and helpful as were all the staff. The breakfast room overlooks a temple across the road and you can ask for hot water for tea and coffee. One day I came back from breakfast to find my room made up and the thermos already full of hot water for me (I asked for it a lot!). This place is not a five star hotel but it's comfortable, friendly and full of personal touches to make it feel like home. I didn't want to leave and hope to return again some day... On top of all this, it's a bargain, I paid USD18 for a room with a big double bed, large bathroom and breakfast included. It's a 5-10 minute walk into the centre and the hotel can arrange pickup from airport/train station for USD14.

Room Tip: Ask to see several rooms (if more than one is available, they are VERY busy so it's best to book...
