We booked to stay for four nights here and looked forward to it. However, we were taken aback by a cold and even rude but beautifully dressed receptionist there. The next day we also encountered a moody waitress. Perhaps it's us after all? Anyway, we mentioned about the receptionist to one of the next shift receptionists, and the management apologised for our experience. We do appreciate that.
We were first place on the first room on the ground floor- room 101. We had to ask to be moved as we'd booked ( through Agoda) a "pool view room" and not a kitchen/ restaurant view room). If this matters to you, make sure you are placed on the first floor or second floor and/ or as far away from the restaurant as possible. Otherwise get a river view room.
Anyway, about the place itself. As mentioned in other reviews, the infinity pool and the setting are wonderful. The room is quite new with tea making facility, a fridge, and a flat screen TV. The modern bathroom/shower is quite nice.
The location is good if you want to be near Hoi An old city. It's just a 3-5 minute walk from the Japanese Bridge. You can get a ticket with 5-6 entrances to interesting places at a small official kiosk near the bridge. I believe the entrances include Than Ha pottery village- three kms. away.
The nearest beach- Cua Dai and An Bahn beaches are five and eight kms. away in the other direction- very doable by a bicycle rented from small shops opposite the hotel (one shop can also rent an electric bicycle at your request).
