We arrived in Hoi An with no arrangements whatsoever in place. Fresh off the overnight train and a rather interesting taxi ride, we walked around the town looking for somewhere to stay. Barely a five minute walk from the main streets, we found this beauty of a hotel tucked away.
We were warmly welcomed by friendly and attentive staff, who over the course of our stay could not do enough to help us. A recently vacated room was cleaned and readied for us and was absolutely spotless. Solid wood floors, big comfy beds and, more importantly, sweet sweet air conditioning. The bathroom was spotless, spacious and also very welcome after such a long train journey. My one issue with the bathroom is that the pane of glass letting light in from the landing could have been a little.. well, frostier! More a problem for anyone looking in than for me though, I suppose!
The view from the deck out back was lovely. Sitting out eating breakfast and looking over the rice paddies was thoroughly relaxing. We didn't make use of the pool but there was always someone else in it and did look very inviting, especially in the heat.
The staff at the hotel were great. They informed us of all the tours that were running in Hoi An and even booked us on to a trip to My Son Valley. On their recommendation we left for the 5am tour to avoid the crowds and see the sunrise. We weren't disappointed. Upon our departure, they even arrange a car to pick us up from the hotel and drive us to our next destination. Hoi An to Hué, via the Hai Van Pass.. a 2 and a half hour journey that cost us barely £40.
Really couldn't recommend this hotel strongly enough. Full of so many little touches that make so much difference after a few weeks of slumming it! I hope to return to Hoi An in 2014.. this time I'll be sure to book in here in advance.
