We came for a quick trip to Hoi An and wished we'd been able to stay for longer than a weekend. We loved Hoi An and the Hoi An Chic is perfect. A little out of town so very peaceful.....just sitting at breakfast looking out over the rice fields is relaxing and uplifting. Getting to and from town is easy by their jeep shuttle, a 10 min cycle ride or $2.50 for a taxi. The whole atmosphere at the Chic is calm and we instantly felt comfortable here. The staff are all smiley, friendly and fun. Will definitely return to Hoi An and the Chic.

Dear Traveler

We are grateful you have taken the time to provide your feedback about our hotel. It means a lot to us that you enjoy your stay and we are very happy that you did. Because you are surrounded by rice paddies when you are in our restaurant it does make you feel like you are part of the landscape. We hope you were refreshed and relaxed when you departed and we hope to see you again when you are next in Hoi An.

This was my first trip to Vietnam, and as I only had a short time available I chose to visit Hoi An. I was keen to stay closer to the Old Town, and my partner was keen to stay closer to the beach. The Hoi An Chic Hotel is pretty much half way between the beach and the Old Town so it was a happy compromise. I was quietly confident that it was going to be great after reading all of the positive reviews, but I have been caught out in the past.
Arriving in Da Nang airport, my partner and I were greeted by a smiling man who drove us from the airport to the hotel in Hoi An in a vintage Jeep (we chose that option). When we arrived at the hotel we were warmly greeted (almost like old friends) by the front desk staff. We were given a tour of the property and then were escorted to our room which was quite simply amazing. We chose the "Grand Chic" suite and I would highly recommend this option. High ceilings, massive bathroom including a separate area with a gorgeous bath.
We used the pool quite a bit, which is on the roof overlooking the fields (and ordered quite a few of the cocktails from the restaurant downstairs).
The restaurant was great. The food was always delicious as it was freshly cooked when requested. Sometimes this took a while, but honestly I would much prefer a freshly made rice paper roll rather than a pre made one. The food was definitely fresh and tasty.
I booked a cooking tour and bike riding tour which through the hotel which was definitely lots of fun. I also booked a couple of massage treatments from the nearby 'Ginger Spa' which was charged to the room. I highly recommend Ginger Spa (look out for my review on Tripadvisor).
The hotel had bikes available which we took advantage of pretty much every day of our visit. At night we would just ride our bikes into the Old Town and eat at one of the many fantastic restaurants there.
It was just such a relaxing time.
Would i recommend staying at the Hoi An Chic Hotel? Most definitely. If I am ever visiting Hoi An again this would be my #1 choice.

We stayed at Hoi An Chic for 4 night and had a great time. The hotel is quaint and different and in a great location with shuttles to Hoi an Centre on a regular basis. The staff is very helpful, we made them aware on the first morning of our stay that the pillows was to hard for us, that afternoon we had softer pillows. We also made them aware that we did not think that their breakfast was up to standard with cheese in plastic wrap being served and this was also changed. Unfortunately on the morning that they had changed it, we had decided to go into town for a better breakfast. Their lunch was superb. The hotel recommend a spa which we didn't find very good and way to pricy for Vietnam standards. I had a manicure and pedicure at the recommended spa that took two hour and terrible, I had it redone for 1/3 of the price in half an hour down town. That said the hotel was very understanding and accommodating when we made them aware of these thing, they did give us 40% of our spa treatment which was charged to the room. We did one of the Cycling tours with Rose tours and loved it, it was fantastic and we saw so many thing that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. We would not hesitate to stay at Hoi An chic again, it was very enjoyable and a special thank you to Song at the front counter. We loved our stay.

Room Tip: Go for the top rooms with the bath,they have good views and plenty of space. There are 4 in total.

Since there were so many choices of places to stay in Hoi An, I was not sure about which one to pick, so I looked at the TripAdvisor rankings and found the Hoi An Chic Hotel. It is a very nice boutique hotel that had a kind of quirky elegance that made it distinctive. A lot of effort has been put into designing the rooms which have stone floors and elegant bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers. Its location is slightly away from the old town, but they provide free shuttle service in a jeep on a regular schedule, but taxis are cheap enough and plentiful enough, so there is no problem if your schedule doesn’t match the hotel’s. The hotel is surrounded by rice fields on three sides and at breakfast at the hotel’s small restaurant you get taste of rural Vietnam seeing people wearing conical hats bicycling to work through the fields. Breakfasts were good, and we also enjoyed the lunch we had at there.

From our arrival, we were greeted with a welcoming drink and cold towel. Then they showed us the rooms and explained the basic logistics. We had the family room, which was nice to have two bathrooms. It was very spacious and clean. What set them apart from other hotels is that the personal touch and details they out into each from. From the retro telephone to the bamboo toilet holders. You just have to be there to notice all the personal touches designs. I like firm beds, so this was perfect for me.

Such a bliss to wake up listening to the trees whispering, roosters, birds chirping. Also, all the gardens that they have around the hotel, made it feel like home. Like others mentioned, they only have 17 rooms, so they refer us by our first names. Any reservations that were discussed the day before, were recorded so others can follow up on it. I was never hesitate to ask for help, because of the friendly staff. Even the cleaning crew had a genuine smile too. You can tell they like working there. Unlike some 5 stars hotel with no personal interactions.

They helped us make all the tours with very efficient driver. The location is a bit away from the town, but I like that peace and quiet. I also like the fact that they clean your room

Will definitely come back to stay if I'm in Hoi An. Definitely comparable to a 5 stars hotel .

Thank you very much for your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed our hotel in the countryside. Although it is half way between Hoi An and the beaches, we offer a complimentary shuttle to both places in our US military jeeps - so getting there and back is a fun and cool experience! We were delighted to help you with your tours and enjoy seeing the smiling faces when returning to our hotel for a cool drink and refreshing swim after a day exploring the area. We would be delighted to welcome you again if you return to Hoi An. It was our pleasure to meet you and look forward to seeing you again.

Hoi An Chic is a perfect spot between the busy Old City and the beach. The rooms are very spacious and beautifully appointed. Breakfasts and the dinner we ate at the Hotel Restaurant were excellent. The pool was appreciated in the heat. Veteran army jeep complimentary transfers and pay trips were a nice touch.
The best thing about Hoi An Chic is the staff. From welcome to farewell the staff were all unbelievably helpful and friendly. They were very helpful in organising tours, shopping trips, and things to do.

Can recommend this as one of best boutique hotels we have stayed at.
