“Cannot rave about this place enough!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

We didn't want to leave Loc Phat! The most comfortable 4 nights we've ever had. Such beautiful grounds, really clean and being constantly tended to. The rooms are such a bargain, they are huge with their own outdoor area including table and chairs. No toilet doors, but that's not a big deal. Breakfast is amazing. Receptionist is always cheery! Bike rental is dirt cheap (although a couple need some upkeep) and the staff are full of suggestions for bike trips trough the countryside or to the beach. Linh is the most gracious host, it was my birthday during our stay & she bought me bunch of flowers. An absolute gem.

The hotel is really lovely with a lot of thought and effort going into everything. Our rooms was spacious with very comfortable beds, a great bathroom and was very tastefully decorated. It doesn't have a pool or any real communal space like some of the other hotels that you can get for a similar price in the same area, but loc phat has lots of lovely personal touches that other places lack. And the breakfast is fabulous - poached eggs on fresh bread, a huge bowl of fruit and yogurt and a crepe.

Really charming and cosy guesthouse a complimentary breakfast. The room with balcony was bright and stylish, and quiet. The owner LInh was very friendly and helpful with all sorts of things (schedules, tickets, trips etc.) with the idea that we are all one family. Good location in the middle of the beach and the city, two kilometers in each direction was easy to get to by bike. We stayed six happy days at Loc Phat Homestay. Thank you very much Mrs Linh.

I was excited to stay in a homestay for a little more of an authentic experience and to meet new people. First off, the facilities were unreal. So clean, and brand new. Everything always worked, it was absolutely great. The owners were also extremely helpful and friendly. I was fortunate enough to be there during their family reunion, so I got to meet their whole family, it was such a great experience.
They are located a km or two from town, but have bicycles you can rent for $2. It's only a 10 minute or so ride to town which is nice because you get to see the sights. It's also a 15 minute or so ride to the beach, but I only went there once. Loc Phat is located approx halfway between downtown and the beach, so it's a good location in that respect.
I absolutely loved staying here. It was the cleanest place I stayed on my whole trip. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here.
(also, the items in the fridge in your room and totally reasonably priced, I could only find the beer priced the same as them at one other store, everywhere else was more expensive, so help yourself knowing you're not getting ripped off).
The only downside is that there is a Church located nearby and you can hear them gong every night at 3am.

These are the photos that I took when I stayed there. They were not provided to me to use.

Room Tip: I stayed on a ground floor unit which is nice because then you have no stairs and can sit on the pat...

Lovely b&b, brand new apartments in a great location about half way between the town centre and cua dai beach. We stayed in one of the apartments on the ground floor and it cost $23 a night including breakfast, with a dollar extra to rent bikes each day. Its about a 10 minute cycle from the town centre so we did end up using the bikes every day. The apartments were clean, spacious, nicely designed and the balcony looked out on a lovely garden area. Linh and Rocky work hard to provide a real family ambiance to the place and were very helpful in organising transport for us when we moved on. We here for four nights over Tet and could not have celebrated the new year in a better place. Linh cooked lunch for us twice over the Tet period to give us an experience of real Vietnamese cuisine which made the whole experience very special.

Cannot recommend this place enough. Loc Phat are no longer a home stay, although this option is still available, they have completed a new small boutique hotel. The rooms are beautiful, the breakfast is very good, the location is spot on-half way between the beach and old town and very easy to cycle to both. Lots of bikes available for $1 per day. We stayed over the TET holiday and were welcomed to 2 family celebrations. We stayed for 1 week and were invited to 3 different meals cooked by Linn, the host and her family-great food. So wonderful hospitality, everything about this place is right. Thank you so much Linn and Rocky for making our stay one of the highlights of our trip.

My husband and I have stayed in 42 hotels in the past three months and Loc Phat was definitely one of our favorites. I believe the facility used to be a lot smaller and attached to the owners' house, but they recently built the existing structure: two beautiful, modern, 2-story buildings situated around a well-landscaped, peaceful patio and garden.

We stayed on the second floor of Loc Phat's "B" building beside the pleasant indoor-outdoor breakfast area. Our balcony room ($23 USD, including breakfast through Agoda) was spacious, very clean and very comfortable. The furniture and decorations were new and tasteful. What really makes Loc Phat, however, is the genuine, welcoming nature of the husband and wife owners. The husband explained the entire town to us (pointing out his own favorite restaurants), and the wife repeatedly asked whether she could get something to help make my sick husband feel better. There's also an extremely friendly young woman who is always smiling and seems truly happy to see each guest.

Breakfast was fabulous. There are five or six items on the menu (eggs, fruit with yogurt, pancakes), but we were encouraged to order as much as we wanted. The food was delicious.

The only thing amiss with Loc Phat was some noise issues: Our building bordered a small housing development featuring a handful of rowdy children and some women shouting in the middle of the night. Our floor also featured a pesky water pump that would groan whenever a guest turned on a tap or shower or flushed a toilet. Luckily, this wasn't such a problem at night because most people were sleeping.

NOTE: A great way to see both the Old Town and the beach is to rent a bicycle ($1/day) or a scooter ($5/a day) from the hotel owners. If you ride one to the beach, however, there's a mini blockade where locals force you to pay (5,000 VND for a bike) to park your steed. I guess they don't want scooters and bikes parked willy-nilly along the beach. If you're not actually going to the beach and just want to travel down the beach road, ignore the people waving their arms and ride through the stop. That's what I did when I wanted to bike to the lighthouse and jetty.

Room Tip: Rooms in "A" building are slightly closer to the road, but they are farther from the sligh...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Loc Phat Hoi An Homestay Villa is run by Nguyen Thi Ngoc Linh, or Linh for short, whose family has lived on the same property for 4 generations. It’s named after my sons, Phat (which means development) and Loc (Luck). My roots stretch back to a small fishing village near Hoi An beach, while my husband’s family has lived on the property I now operates from for over a century. Linh claims to have established the first professional homestay in Hoi An and everything I has learned during my time working in hospitality is visible in the day to day going-ons of the Villa. Stay for a night and you will notice the family’s impact on every aspect of life in Loc Phat. Linh’s children, nieces, and nephews run around and play with their toys, my father-in-law stands aged and smiling as security, my sister greets you from behind the reception desk, my sister/brother-in-law serve you a complimentary breakfast, and my aunt will clean your room. In fact every employee of the homestay is a member of the extended family. ”We respect everything we have, because we are very lucky to have it” The homestay is more than just a business for us, it’s a way of life. The Homestay Villa has recently added brand new buildings to its complex, so visitors no longer live within Linh’s home, we have our own beautiful modern private rooms to retire to, all built around the tranquil garden. However interaction with the family is still a large part of the experience, and any guest who wishes to sit down for a chat or simply observe is greeted with open arms and a smile. Linh is an intrepid and well versed cook, and I exhibit my skills for the dinners I enjoys cooking for my guests for someone stay in the Villa are looking forward to have cooking class you will be composed of Cao Lau noodles (made from a secret recipe that is known to only one family in Hoi An), green mango salad, fresh spring rolls, and the famous Hoi An pancakes……….. with Linh for a homecooking class. Linh also takes great pleasure in talking with my guests and spends hours of my day interacting with anyone who has a question or is curious about the Hoi An way of life. I will organize any manner of trip for her visitors, from a excursion to a lantern making shop, a trip to a local market for ingredients used in the cooking class, or mundane things like arranging taxi service to the airport…………etc. The Homestay likes to give back to the community and every year Linh and my husband sponsor the education of two children, one from Linh’s fishing village and one from Hoi An. Since there is no such thing as free public school in Vietnam many children, especially the third or fourth born in any family, are in danger of missing out on a formal education. Linh was one of only five children to go to school in her village, so she has a deep empathy for the plight of uneducated children in the region. In addition the homestay also gives away a bicycle to one lucky child at the end of every year. If you haven’t already gathered we were charmed by Hoi An, Loc Phat Hoi An Homestay Villa, and the family living there and operating it. If you want to experience an authentic slice of Vietnamese life within Hoi An City, book a stay at the Homestay Villa. You will be welcomed to the family with big smiles and open arms. ... more   less
