“A real gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

Our stay with Linh and her family in their brand new guesthouse has been absolutely wonderful. Delightful and very clean bright rooms, tastefully furnished. Delicious breakfast. And more so than anything, Linh and Rocky's hospitality has been incredible, they invited us for lunar New Year's Eve lunch which was great, and Linh also cooked us dinner one evening. 20 minute walk to town, and further to the beach, but the walk to town is fine and you can cycle it no problem. Very lucky to have stayed here.

I stayed at Locphat Hoi An Homestay for four nights and was thoroughly pleased with everything there. The location was great for me as it is midway between the old quarter and the beach, both of which could easily be reached by bike or scooter. The property is fairly new. It is pleasant, clean, and feels like home. The rooms are spacious and very modern with comfortable beds, A/C,TV, fridge and a private shower. Another plus about this homestay is the delicious breakfast. Guests make their selections from the menu, and the staff prepares it promptly. Lastly, my stay in Hoi An will be even more memorable because of Linh and her husband. They are the warmest, most attentive and helpful hosts I've encountered during my trip. This is definitely a high quality selection.

If you are expecting a genuine homestay experience then look elsewhere, but as a hotel Loc Phat was very nice. The rooms are very stylishly decorated (although there are no doors to the toilet which might be awkward if traveling with a partner!). The staff is really sweet and the breakfast was nice. It is located away from the center of town and I ended up moving to a hotel closer to the city center, but it's only a 10 minute bike ride so it's still pretty close. However, be careful riding your bike back to the hotel after dark as the road is quite busy and I had a few scares along the way!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor as the first floor rooms have no privacy

We had a great time at Locphat Homestay. The staff was very friendly and did their best to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The room was nicely done up and completely new furnished. The location is good too as it is close to the city center and to the beach (both about 10min. by bike). One little minus: the bikes were not included in the price as we read on the webpage before. But 1USD per day was bearable.

My fiance and I originally booked 4 nights with Linh and Rocky at Loc Phat Homestay. From our first encounter she was pleasant, uppity and reassuring. We thought that we would be in the homestay, however they were just finishing up construction on their new site, a hybrid hotel/homestay of sorts where we would have interaction with the family and their employees, but staying in our own private room - with great water pressure and hot water, air condition, international TV channels and super clean decor. However, the real joys are within the city and people of Hoi An. With Linh's assistance we discovered market vendors, food stuff and "best of" sites that made us extend our stay to 6 nights, and then to 9. She made many attempts to make our stay pleasant, getting to know us, making a full-on New Year's dinner, on top of all her responsibilities at her full-time job and her pregnancy!

For us the location was perfect, halfway to the beach and to the old town; we could easily rent bicycles or a motorbike for the day (through the homestay), and escape to the secluded homestay property when the touring or eating was over.

I'd say that the value for the money is well worth it, and the opportunity to meet this family will easily put the homestay at the top of your Vietnam memories.

Arrived in Dec 2012 and stayed for 2 nights.

Location is a lil bit far from town but just nice for me (and everyone else I think) as it is in between Hoi An town and Cua Dai beach; adding to the fact that the location is more quiet and peaceful as compared to town at night. Had a great time talking to Linh and family who are very friendly and helpful. I was even invited for a home-cook dinner on my second night here. We had some beer and a great chat after dinner; just what you need in a town like Hoi An: RELAX and chill.

Definitely a good stay and experience; especially after nights of staying in hotels.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Loc Phat Hoi An Homestay Villa is run by Nguyen Thi Ngoc Linh, or Linh for short, whose family has lived on the same property for 4 generations. It’s named after my sons, Phat (which means development) and Loc (Luck). My roots stretch back to a small fishing village near Hoi An beach, while my husband’s family has lived on the property I now operates from for over a century. Linh claims to have established the first professional homestay in Hoi An and everything I has learned during my time working in hospitality is visible in the day to day going-ons of the Villa. Stay for a night and you will notice the family’s impact on every aspect of life in Loc Phat. Linh’s children, nieces, and nephews run around and play with their toys, my father-in-law stands aged and smiling as security, my sister greets you from behind the reception desk, my sister/brother-in-law serve you a complimentary breakfast, and my aunt will clean your room. In fact every employee of the homestay is a member of the extended family. ”We respect everything we have, because we are very lucky to have it” The homestay is more than just a business for us, it’s a way of life. The Homestay Villa has recently added brand new buildings to its complex, so visitors no longer live within Linh’s home, we have our own beautiful modern private rooms to retire to, all built around the tranquil garden. However interaction with the family is still a large part of the experience, and any guest who wishes to sit down for a chat or simply observe is greeted with open arms and a smile. Linh is an intrepid and well versed cook, and I exhibit my skills for the dinners I enjoys cooking for my guests for someone stay in the Villa are looking forward to have cooking class you will be composed of Cao Lau noodles (made from a secret recipe that is known to only one family in Hoi An), green mango salad, fresh spring rolls, and the famous Hoi An pancakes……….. with Linh for a homecooking class. Linh also takes great pleasure in talking with my guests and spends hours of my day interacting with anyone who has a question or is curious about the Hoi An way of life. I will organize any manner of trip for her visitors, from a excursion to a lantern making shop, a trip to a local market for ingredients used in the cooking class, or mundane things like arranging taxi service to the airport…………etc. The Homestay likes to give back to the community and every year Linh and my husband sponsor the education of two children, one from Linh’s fishing village and one from Hoi An. Since there is no such thing as free public school in Vietnam many children, especially the third or fourth born in any family, are in danger of missing out on a formal education. Linh was one of only five children to go to school in her village, so she has a deep empathy for the plight of uneducated children in the region. In addition the homestay also gives away a bicycle to one lucky child at the end of every year. If you haven’t already gathered we were charmed by Hoi An, Loc Phat Hoi An Homestay Villa, and the family living there and operating it. If you want to experience an authentic slice of Vietnamese life within Hoi An City, book a stay at the Homestay Villa. You will be welcomed to the family with big smiles and open arms. ... more   less
