“We loved it, can see why some people wouldn't...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We loved this place, mainly on the back of a free upgrade to a clean, smart, spacious bungalow and very friendly staff, but, when thinking a few gripes, can see why some would not.

It's very pretty with green, flowered gardens (orchids and the like). The room was smart and clean with 2 bathrooms, lovely wooden floors and a big comfortable bed, fantastic value for money. The outdoor bathroom felt very luxurious.

The pool is refreshing and nicely surrounded by flowers/plants but a little jammed in with 2 loungers in a tight corner; for us a pool was bonus and not a reason for booking this place or going to Hoi An at all.

The staff were so friendly and very keen to help and offer advice about Hoi An. The lady we dealt with also had the best English of anyone we met in Vietnam. It's as if they were there to facilitate a great stay and not to take money off of you.

A little way from town but taxis cheap and free bike usage, plus it's nearer the beach than a lot of places if that's your thing.

As some people have noted there is building work going on; this didn't bother us and our room didn't seem extra dusty on the back of this.

Overall a great experience.

We stayed for 7 nights at the Homestay at the end of January after a hectic time touring both Vietnam and Cambodia. The arranged pickup from Da Nang airport was there and waiting..good start. A warm welcome was given to us when we arrived, we were allocated bungalow 8, nice and quiet, with a great outdoor bath / shower room( if you climb onto the end of the bath you can look over into the neighbours garden/ allotment), the lounge type room was superfluous for us but might suit people who stayed in more than we did.
There was some building work going on next door, but it really did not bother us at all, nor did the cockerel crowing early in the morning( we have one back in the UK), some other reviewers were upset about his crowing, the building work should soon be finished.
The breakfasts were good and substantial, really good smoothies and loads of fruit. The staff arranged an evening meal/party which all the residents attended, good way to try local dishes and get to talk to fellow travellers....really useful info was passed around.
Although the Homestay is a little way out of town , takes about 20 mins walk, taxis are only about $1 to town. Rather than going along the road outside we found that you can cut down to the really quiet walk along by the river by going down the lane where it is signed Betel Lodge Homestay just about 100m along the main road towards town, just follow this down and across the next road and you will eventually find the river route, much better for cycling aswell...persevere it's worth a few dead ends and you will use it for the rest of your stay.
The pool was brilliant after a long day out.
If you do go to My Son it is worth arranging your own transport with either MiMi or Ruby we left at 7 am and got there well ahead of the tour buses which start to arrive at 9 ish, it was heaving by the time we left , well worth the $30 to have the place to yourself for an hour and a half, really good journey there and back.
MiMi and Ruby were really helpful, nothing was too much trouble even if they were busy.
The rooms nearer the road would be noisier than where we were towards the back.
It is worth picking up,the cycle map from one of the info places in town before heading off towards the beaches, we did the cycle and only got lost once ending up in someone's back garden, and we did persuade some people to give us a lift across a channel on a small boat....the women did it whilst the men continued with their card game!
Loads to do in Hoi An.

Room Tip: Try to get a room towards the back away from the road, 8 was good for us.

Stayed 6 nights in a bungalow. Initially we were concerned about the distance from the old town, however this was never a problem with the use of free bicycles and cheap readily available taxi's (only about $1.5 to get into town).
This lovely homestay is everything and more as per previous reviews. Make sure you book ahead as it always seems to be full.

We reserved a bungalow and requested a quiet one with an outdoor shower. Upon arrival, we were put in the family bungalow. The bedroom was next to the pool but it wasn't noisy. The "outdoor" shower simply had an open "window" above it but was still a lovely shower, just not what we were expecting. I think one of the other bungalows has a shower that is truly outside. However, I also think it is next to the rooster that crows early in the morning. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The bikes are free to use which was also useful. The breakfasts were decent with choices of baguette with variations of egg preparation, fruit, cereal, muesli, yogurt or pho. The owner made dinner for all of the guests one of the nights and we all ate in good company that evening - it was very lovely. I would definitely recommend this place.

This was a perfect setting and relaxing stay in Hoi AN. We stayed in a bungalow, very well furnished and comfortable and a comfy bed too and even with a great open air shower. The people at the homestay were all very friendly and helpful. On Saturday night we were invited for a special dinner with other guests all sitting around a large table near the pool and garden. And we tasted some of the amazing dishes of Hoi An's local cuisine. Every morning we had a delicious breakfast with wonderful fresh fruits , fresh juice and other local ingredients Also, we liked the location. They provided complimentary bikes (and as Dutchies we love to ride a bicycle!) and the old town and beach were all just short bike ride away. You can even make very nice cycling tours around hoi an and experiencing the local way of life. The garden is beautiful and a dip in the swimmingpool is a bonus too. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much!

We originally planned to only stay one night at Orchid Garden at the beginning of the Tet holiday. However, once we arrived and got to know the staff and grounds at Orchid Garden we couldn't leave.

The bungalows there are well furnished, extremely clean and meticulously maintained. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom in our suite had an open air shower and bath tub that was amazing. The grounds are also spectacular. Nearly everywhere you look is a well manicured garden bed. Orchids, palms and other flowers surround the koi pond reception area and bungalows to give the entire complex a rural vibe. Furthermore, despite being only a short bike ride from the center of Old Town, there is a great pool that is ideal for an afternoon dip.

The staff is very hospitable and friendly. They will facilitate anything you would like to do from renting scooters to scheduling intricate tours. They also have complimentary bikes that are very convenient to use. Be sure not to miss breakfast as they offer an extensive menu of traditional breakfast foods and a variety of fresh fruit that is included with your stay.

Overall, I wish all the hotels we visited were run as well as the Orchid Garden. It was a pleasure staying there.
