“Fine Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

My husband and I stayed at Hoa Binh Hotel for 3 nights during our four week trip through Vietnam. It was a fine hotel. For the price you can do worse.

Pro:
- Nicely appointed room (it's got style!)
- Good (and reasonably priced) tour of My Son = $8 plus $5 site admission per person for bus there, tour, lunch, boat back, tour of woodcarving village
- Nice staff

Cons:
- Hard bed
- Rooms are smaller than most for the price point
- The comforter had lots of stains and looked like it had not been laundered. Stained (but clean) sheets. Slightly smelly pillow.
- No separate shower area (just a showerhead and a drain in a corner of the bathroom)
- Breakfast was not great (although free)

Although we didn't have problems with the staff ourselves, on the last day we heard the lady at the front desk hasseling another guest for not booking a tour through the hotel. This isn't that unusual for Vietnam, but it is annoying. She was also very insistent when checking out that we right a good review for Tripadvisor (whoops!)

To sum up, a perfectly fine option. Not going to blow your mind.

We really liked it, we had a small but beautiful room (308) that if you go and is empty go for it ! really nice. We liked the breakfast as well, and we thought that the women at the desk were very helpful an nice to us. We felt very welcomed and we thought that has been one of the most nice hotels that we have been around southeast asia. The location is good, right in he middle, so everything is very handy! . The only thing that we didn't like was the Bellboy, as we think he was very pushy and uncouth, very out of place over and over. He is not a great addition to the hotel but besides that, everything is perfect!

Room Tip: I had the 308 room and we loved because it was right in the middle of two halls, so any room after a...

Stayed here for two nights and found the hotel to be okay. We had a triple room which was three single beds. The room was clean, albeit the bathroom about ready for a revamp! It had the feel of a hostel rather than a hotel. Breakfast was average. Okay options: cereal and toast, plus omelettes. Probably better to eat out for breakfast though.

we stayed here for 3 nights and the room was very spacious, clean and got cleaned everyday. Also great location. Only thing that wasnt to our taste was the breakfast was gloopy carbonara and horrible pancakes but cant fault anything else. Great stay.

Room Tip: Try not to have a room on the ground floor if possible as we did and was very loud with people comin...

The hotel is nice, breakfast buffet was good and room was good value. Our stay was unfortunately a bit ruined by the woman that was working at the desk, she was very uninterested in us and our questions and always started to talk to someone else which I found very rude.
Above that she always gave us the fakest smile ever...
Thank god the cleaning ladies and the staff working at the breakfast buffet were nice!
Sometimes there was another woman at the reception wo did want to help us out.

Room was clean, comfortable, well lit with a stocked mini bar/fridge, caple tv, AC, great wifi. Free buffet breakfast was by far the best we've had in Asia. Staff was extremely knowledgable and nice. Hands down out favourite place and for SO cheap! The value is incredible.

Me and a friend started to book two nights at Hoa Binh Hotel, but ended staying there for five nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful and always met us with a big smile and a "good morning/day/evening".
I really liked the breakfast - one of the best i have had in a hotel in Vietnam - with warm food, bread, fruit and more. When we had to leave the hotel at 6 a.m. for Ho Chi Minh we ate our own breakfast, but when we left for the airport they gave us some breakfast for the ride - very nice.
There was nothing wrong with the room and it was cleaned every day.
The location is very nice - 10 minutes walk to where everything happens in Hoi An. It is not a luxury hotel, but for the price, I think it is very good. I highly recommend it!
