“Friendliest Staff Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is a lovely little hotel about a fifteen minute walk from the old city in Hoi An. You are greeted in the lobby with wash clothes and a fruit drink. The entire staff are so friendly and never fail to greet you and ask how you are doing. I've stayed in many hotels around the world, and this hotel definitely has the most friendly and caring staff! The rooms are lovingly presented, with fresh flowers on the desk, bed and towels. At night they place a "bedtime story" on the bed--a local legend printed out, rolled and placed on the turned-down bed. Such a nice touch. They offer spa services, and my travel mates who used these were very pleased with the price and quality. The restaurant is large, and at breakfast there is a large array of western and local foods, including made to order omelets and eggs. I stayed here on a tour, so can't comment on pricing of the rooms, but I would definitely consider staying here again if I ever return to the delightful town of Hoi An.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that over-looks the pool and garden. It is quieter and definitely more scenic.

This hotel is an excellent hotel with a very friendly and helpful staff. It is a bit out of the center but easy to walk and even better by bicycle (5min) . The swimmigpool, restaurant and bar are all in the beautiful garden. Rooms are very good and the beach of An Bang is 20 min by bicycle!!

Went there with a group of friends for 2 nights. We booked 5 rooms, all of them were excellent.
Easy walk to town, nice garden. the pool looked great but was too cold for me.
The service was a big plus: i had transfer with them from airport, my flight was 3hrs delay. they called me to let me know my bus will be waiting...before airline actually let me know it was delay!!
Cant fault the place. best in my opinion.
Thanks, to the team

I stayed here for 2 nights (as part of an intrepid tour). A lovely place, which is beautifully presented, with a fabulous pool and gardens. I was smug about my lovely large room with a balcony overlooking the gardens.

On the second day unfortunately the weather was very windy and cold. No chance of a swim! This in turn meant that my room was freezing as the balcony door even locked let in a huge amount of cold air, and I found myself stuffing the gap with paper and leaflets and anything I could put my hand on. The window wasn't much better.

Breakfast isn't bad but it is accessed by going outside so again, this is a better place if the weather is warm! The same applies for the bar, which closes very early anyway.

It is about a 20 minute walk to town, but I suppose that makes it quieter. Definitely no traffic noise, although like others, I was woken by the roosters each morning at 4, but that's quite fun.

One tip - do not go to the cafe opposite the hotel for laundry, try anywhere else. The cafe is grotty and the laundry was not only late but smelled really bad!!! Either use the hotel or find one of the other many places that offer this service.

Dear Jenny J, many thanks for your recent stay and your constructive review on us. It is very nice to hear your comment about our lovely place with the nice pool and beautiful garden. Unfortunately, we found that your stay was not pleasant due to the weather affection changed afterwards. We are sorry to hear that you felt freeze and yourself manage to reduce the cold air to your room which is normal one of our best room with the garden- pool view extend to the paddy field. With the typical weather condition is rather hot then cold but occasionally it turns to a bit cold in the winter, we even had some bad storms which it is much worse then the windy day in February. We understand that all our guest expect for the nice weather during the trip and so we do. Our wish is to make guest happy in any way and the weather is a key factor. Thus we do apologies for all the inconveniences you had encountered and you could not enjoyed our pool and the bar. We feel so much supportive to read you comment and learn that we still need to enhance our accommodation quality. Definitely, we will be look into the details and make necessary improvements which aim to maximize our guest satisfaction.

Thank you again for your feedback and we do hope to welcome you back next time in the better weather condition. Kind regards, Huyen/Ms

This place is doing everything right! Tastefully decorated & spotlessly clean rooms. Gorgeous, tranquil grounds including a lily pond and views of rice paddy fields & iconic water buffalo. Friendly helpful staff always eager to please. The smallest details are attended to from fresh flowers in your room at check in to lovely peaceful music (no tv...yay) in the airy dining room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the back - gorgeous views!

We absolutely loved our stay here in Hoi An over 4 days and has been the best hotel so far in Vietnam. We loved the grounds and gardens of this boutique hotel, lovely pool, the rooms were very clean. The staff were amazing and are always eager to help, and always greet you, Huyen was so helpful and always checked to make sure our stay was perfect. We actually loved hearing the roosters in the morning, which in no way was intrusive or too loud. Loved the foot massage and body massage on site. Breakfast was great and was outdoors under massive pergola overlooking lake. You can either walk to old town which is 20 minutes away or use free bikes. Would definitely book here again when back in Vietnam.
