If you are after a typical French farmhouse with rustic features, right in the heart of the old town quarter, look no more.
This place will impress you especially if you are feed up with Asian designed rooms with a western edge to them. The room on the ground floor is the one to ask for as it is 2 rooms in one with a small kitchenette and a small private courtyard.
The room is A/C and the bathroom is just fantastic. No marble here folks, good old terrazzo on walls and floor. The food is excellent and the wine and beer cheap by Vietnam standards. $6-9 a glass for wine is the norm here as they import all of it except for Da-lat wine, which is terrible.
Even better is its position. You cannot be any closer to the shopping heart of Hoi-an as its in the same street as the Chinese Bridge that is 600 years old or so and you can watch the hustle on the street during daylight hours right from the front courtyard of the hotel. Don't get me wrong, this place is quite as there a re no cars allowed in the street, just tourists and locals.
The staff are really friendly (Hi Miss Chung) and speak english quite well and the owners are French, so the place really is, well, French.
If I went back to Hoi an, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
