“Terrible place to stay”
Reviewed June 19, 2010

Don't stay here. You can get much better value for money elsewhere. Yes, the house is old but so are all the houses in Hoi An. They will tell you have a private bathroom but they don't tell you that it's not attached, it's down the hall and you have to across the main hall and anyone there. And as it is not locked anyone can (and does) use your bathroom/shower. Not only are the walls paper thin, they aren't actually walls. They are dividers, so don't expect any privacy. The downstairs "room" is a bed in the corner and a couple of dividers meant to give you privacy, which it doesn't.

Stayed February 2010, traveled as a couple

Having stayed just out of town on our first night in Hoi An we moved to this delightful little guest house for our second night. We weren't disappointed with any aspect of this 200 year old house, from the rooms to the location to the brilliant family who run the guesthouse and adjoining shop.

We stayed upstairs, overlooking the central market, in big room with two big comfortable beds. Downstairs there was a lovely courtyard with peaceful garden and a nice selection of books. The traffic through the market provided a fantastic backing soundtrack during the day, while it was surprisingly quiet in the evening.

The location was outstanding, however the service and attention to detail of our hosts was even better. In the morning they ducked insisted on taking our order then going to the market (next door) to buy everything fresh, helped improve our dire vietnamese language skills, and gave us advice on all the bus companies - without any pressure to sell.

All up a wonderful place, perfectly located, well priced and with unbelievable service.
