“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

I stayed 3 nights in this hotel. The rooms were clean and spacious. The staff were really friendly and helpful and it also benefits from an outdoor swimming pool. Also the view from the viewing platform on the roof is fantastic. I recommend catching the sunset from there one night.

I'd definitely stay here again.

David, from the UK.

We stayed at The Lantern Hotel for 2 weeks and really enjoyed it. The swimming pool is nice and never too busy so you will always have a lounger. The hotel is about a ten minute walk into the old town but on the way there are lots of clothing shops and restaurants, so you don't always have to walk all that way just for dinner. The hotel is clean and the staff are really nice. The breakfast can be good if the bread is fresh (some days it was really stale). I would suggest getting the cheaper rooms as all of the rooms are exactly the same size but the higher price buys you a view.. which isn't that great anyway. and most of the rooms have balcony's. If you want to hire a scooter don't get one from the lady across the road her scooters are old and break down (she is very pushy but just day no) hire from the family that owns a little snack shop about 4 doors down towards town, they only charge 80,000 a day and they are really nice.

Right from the start we were made to feel very welcome, the rooms are quite spacious for the price, the pool, restaurant and bar were very relaxing. The hotel is in a great location for easy access to the markets and clothing shops. The hotel staff fulfilled our every need, a very enjoyable stay,will return for sure

We stayed in Hoi An Lantern Hotel for five nights, and can happily report that the stay was excellent. The staff were very friendly, and always helpful. The buffet breakfast is first rate. We booked tours at reception, and were more than happy with all aspects, especially the advice on what tour would suit us.
We booked transfer from DaNang airport to Hoi An Lantern Hotel at the time we booked our accommodation, and this proved to be an excellent arrangement - we used their service again on departure.
Our total experience in Hoi An was great, and in no short measure because of our booking this hotel, and the friendly and efficient staff.

Honestly can't believe the few negative reviews for this place. They must have stayed in a different place!

The Lantern is a top hotel for a number of reasons. The rooms are spotless, very comfortable beds and nice bathroom. The pool area is also very nice.

The 4th floor restaurant was also very good for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

But above all the staff are brilliant. So friendly and always asking if they can help with anything at all. We checked out but had 4 hours to kill, we were offered to stay by the pool and make use of all changing facilities as well.

It's location is also perfect. A short walk from the town centre.

Thanks to all the staff at the Hoi An Lantern for such great service.

Arrived at the lantern and booked two nights. For us Hoi An was our favourite destination in our journey through Vietnam. The staff were brilliant more than happy to help, and always up for a laugh. Wanted to stay another night but unfortunately they were all booked up as it was vietnamese holidays, but they managed to find us another great hotel for our last night in Han Oi they also organised internal flights and all transport needs prior to the flight. The breakfasts here were great. On the top floor overlooking the town, sunny and breezy. A great bar and pool table on the same floor and to one side a view of the pool. We also had a Vietnamese cooking class where a great guy Ty (the chef) took us around the market to get the ingredients for our chosen menu to take back to the hotel to then show us how to prepare and cook the dishes. Loved our stay here and was only a 5 minute walk away form the market and Japanese Birdge.
