“Good Value. Easy bike ride to beach/downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2011

We enjoyed our ten days in Hoian. The Sunflower Hotel welcomed us with a warm glass of tea and a cold, moist face towel. They said their goodbyes with a cold bottle of water =) We liked the $1 bike rentals, $5 scooter rentals, and the pool. The hotel is an easy 10 min bike ride to the beach and another 10 mins to downtown. Our first room had an odor issue (occasionally smelled like sewer), but the staff was helpful and amicable in giving us a new room. Overall, the Sunflower is great bang for the buck and we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Go for the 2nd and 3rd floors.

Just left after a great stay. Cannot fault this place. Original room was a bit small and without us even asking they moved us! Food is good, pool is great. Shuttle service is great but the walk/bike ride isnt that far into town. Great place...

Clean rooms, great staff BUT they turn the fridge OFF when you are out of your room so after 8 hours out touring return to the room with NO cold drinks. HOT and NO towels either for a shower.
If you not good with stairs avoid this one as NO lift and you must climb the stairs, we were on the fourth so eight flights every time.
NO room service as NO phones in rooms, so if you want any thing you must run the stairs.
Pool is fabulous, food not too bad. Breakfast was enjoyable.
Once again the staff are helpful.

Room Tip: Check on Agoda

They picked us up from the busstand. The People from the hotel were very friendly. The room was nice, and clean, small things for traveller in the room. Free busseervice to the town. In front of the Hotel Motorbike for rent - nessesary to drive to the beach. Breakfast included...and its a great buffet.

What we dislike is that some personal in the restaurant could not speake english.

Picked us up from our sleeper bus, paid for the taxi to the hotel, escorted us up the winding wooden staircase to our large top floor room and told us to relax. Felt like royalty after becoming accustomed to normal backpackers- but at $8 for a room with 2 double beds ($4 each) it was brilliant.

On top of the service, the pool is gorgeous and a lovely place to soak up the rays.

The location means the beach is only a 15min bike ride away (def recommend) and you can walk to the old town in the same time, or if lazy, they run a shuttle bus.

The highlight was the incredible free breakfast! Vast quantities of spring roles, vietnamese delicasies, cereal, pancakes, omelette of your design, cakes, bacon, chicken, rice dishes, fruits, EVERYTHING you could possibly want.

In all, hotel stunning, value of money amazing but more importantly, staff are wonderful! iv recommended it to heaps and i recommend it to you!

I stayed at the Sunflower Hotel for three nights and loved it. The rooms were very clean and modern, the staff were friendly and helpful, free wifi, great breakfast with a good selection, swimming pool. The hotel is 10/15 mins walk from the main town but there is a shuttle bus that will drop you there on request. There are a number of small family run type restaurants surrounding the hotel should you not want to venture too far in the evening. For the money I think this hotel is excellent value.

I loved this place. The hotel arranged a pick up from the Da Nang train station on short notice which took us straight there. The Sunflower Hotel is located about 10-15 minutes walking distance from the centre of Hoi An and on the way to the beach which is perfect. A lot of the other hotels I looked at seemed so much more expensive where as this one was perfect and great value. And the distance isn't a problem at all because Hoi An is generally quite small. We got an amazing huge deluxe room for the price of a double. The room was really clean, had comfy beds, loads of room, a minibar/fridge, tv, ac, wifi - everything really. There's a pool and garden with deck chairs in the back, an all day restaurant in the hotel although we didn't eat there. There were a lot of young travellers around so great for meeting people. The hotel also runs a regular shuttle bus into town every 20 mins where there are tons of bars and restaurants but there are also cycles and bikes to rent. We cycled around mostly. The beach is about a 15 minute ride from the hotel, which is great too. Also, the staff were very kind in helping us sort out day trips (My Son) and onward buses to Hue/Hanoi.

Room Tip: Try get a deluxe room.
