My friend and I stayed at the Starfruit Homestay for three nights while visting Hoi An. Overall a pleasant experience, and a great deal, but it wasn’t without some hiccups.
When we arrived, we were taken to a room that had one bed. I had confirmed multiple times (by email) that we needed a room with two beds. So they moved us to another room – fine. But the next morning at breakfast, they told us they needed us to move to yet another room, because the one we were in was reserved for someone else. What?! We acquiesced because it was easier than arguing and in the grand scheme of things, not a big deal, but it was annoying.
Other than that, it was pretty smooth. The rooms are clean and new and comfortable, and the AC units work well. The bathroom setups are a little strange, but nothing that can’t be easily dealt with. This place is in a residential neighborhood, and about a 20-minute walk from the historic area, which is where everything is. But they have bikes that they offer free of charge, and one day we took bikes and rode around town, and it was very nice. Plus a tai to the historic area costs about a dollar, so it’s a very viable option to just use cabs.
The included breakfast is simple, but quite good. And the service was wonderful – the family that owns and runs this place obviously cares about the guests being comfortable and pleased, and we enjoyed every interaction we had with them.
