“Friendly staff,nice rooms, good service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. From the moment we arrived the staff was very helpfull and kind. The rooms are really nice and very clean. The hotel is about 2 km from the city center, but they have a shuttlebus every hour to take you to the center and back (it's included in the price). We had no complaints what so ever about the service, the rooms or the food! So if you look for a comfortable stay in Hoi An, this is the place to go to!

The superior room is comfortable and quite well appointed, good size, good bathroom. The. Pool area is very nice but loses sun early to mid afternoon. Te pool is nicely maintained. The restaurant closes at 3 o clock but does serve a reasonable lunch. Te hotel shuttle bus is a reliable service driven by a really miserable young man. I did get a smile from him once in the week that I stayed there. Te airport shuttle car is good and a reasonable price. They will not drive off until your room has been checked by the reception staff, so allow a few extra minutes for this. Overall this hotel is good, its position at the back of the town is not a disadvantage due to the shuttle bus service being so regular. Hotel bikes are available for a dollar a day and are of varying quality, ensure that they work and that the tyres are fully inflated before you go! One of the reception staff is particularly helpful the remainder are OK. Te housekeeping is a little hit and miss, chase them for the complimentary water if they fail to leave it!

We stayed for 2 nights. It was such a relief to stay somewhere where people at reception were not trying to get us to part with more cash by directing us to a friend's clothes shop, getting us to book an airport car/tour etc.
the room was very good. The balcony was really nice. The pool area was clean and got lots of sun.
The breakfast was terrible, however. They said they served until 10:00 and by 09:20, most stuff was gone and there were no clean cups/glasses. 11 guists arrived at once. We all requested cups for juice and coffee. My family shared one glass and kept filling it up. The cups never materialised and so there was no tea/coffee for us.
The breakfast wasn't even a bit ropey - it was plain appalling. We went into town for a coffee instead! Not impressed. But I hope that this was a one off as we have been otherwise impressed and I like to think they would not let themselves down with silly mistakes like this.

Southern hotel staff, if you read this - please continue not to hassle tourists. It's so refreshing and sets you apart from other hotels in the area. Many thanks!

We stayed here a night. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. Very easy to understand. Rooms were quite clean and comfortable with additional blankets already in room. The washroom was so-so because it was one of those 2 in 1 scenarios where the toilet and shower was the same room. But it was fine. Breakfast was excellent, very delicious choices. Location was away from all the action but if you don't mind, it's certainly more quiet than the other locations which are closer to the main area.

Southern Hotel and Villa is well located between Hoi An Old Town and An Bang beach with free shuttle half way to old town (town is not too far to walk all the way as we did a few times).
Rooms are generously proportioned (ours was standard room but still a good size and nicely furnished), pool was lovely and with cheap bike hire all in all an excellent place to stay in Hoi An.
The only down side being the relatively expensive laundry service for Vietnam and high commission paid for rail tickets booked through the hotel.

As with many hotels that we have booked in Vietnam through Agoda, we were upgraded upon arrival from a standard room to one with a garden view.

The room was spacious and comfortable. The shower lacked power and we lost electricity for an hour or so during our stay - but that's just Asia and can't be helped.

The pool looked nice although it was too cold for us to take the plunge, I rather took advantage of the somewhat wonky pool table instead, oh and the free breakfast was actually really nice!

The only downside to the hotel is that it was a little out of town. The hotel did run a shuttle, which conveniently dropped you outside Southern Tailors, their own tailor shop. Not quite so convenient was that the bus often left early and if you weren't careful you'd miss it and have to get a taxi back (Roughly 25,000 VND).

Room Tip: If you're looking to have clothes made, go to Kimmy's. Check tripadvisor reviews for added p...

We stayed here for 3 nights, it was amazing! The pool was lovely, quiet and stunning. The breakfast was lovely, great fresh produce and the staff were very helpful! The location was great, a short walk to the middle of town or very cheap taxi drive.
