We spent 3 nights here in one of their cheapest rooms on the 2nd (3rd for Americans) floor towards the back of the hotel. It was clean and spacious with a large bathroom with tub/shower and shower curtain (often missing in budget hotels in this part of the world.) AC and cieling fan functioned well and our room had a tiny private balcony. The breakfast was fine...but note that if you order a ham and cheese omelet it will be about half the size of the onion and tomato. Also, note that the milk they serve with the lipton tea is sweetened so adjust accordingly :)
Location was fine. Just two minutes walk from restaurants and the foot bridge over to the old part of Hoi An. We would have been perfectly happy to stay here longer, but left after 3 nights (half way through our trip) because we found a comparable place for $10/night cheaper.
Two bits of advice:
1) The hotel staff consistently come across as being annoyingly nosey about your schedule and interestes..."where are you going?" "what do you want to do in Hoi An?" "Are you going to have some clothes tailored?" etc. etc. We have read and observed that this is the norm everywhere in Hoi An, they want to recommend certain tours, tailors etc to you so that they will receive a commission. I always just smiled and said "that's my concern and not yours" and that usually ended the interrogation.
2) Avoid doing laundry at this hotel, if you do have them take care of your laundry be very clear about the services you agree to! My wife and I dropped off 4 kg which the gentleman at the front desk agreed to have laundered for $1/kg. There was one sweater that needed to be handwashed and I asked if they would also iron my two collared shirts and a pair of trousers -he agreed with no mention of a price increase. 4 hours later the regular front desk attendant (a lady) asked me to go ahead and pay for the laundry. I refused (I never pay in advance for laundry, in case they damage something) but in the course of the conversation she explained that $1/Kg was for washing ONLY and did not include drying the clothes or ANY ironing! I refused, argued with them, and ended up getting our clothes back un-laundered. Housekeeping at our second hotel was more than happy to do it for $1/kg...including drying.
