“Great location and high standards.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Walking distance of the old centre of Hoi An. Good size, big enough to have amenities but not a large anonymous hotel. Organized tours seem to be their main market which means breakfast and the pool dominated by whichever nationality is in that night.

Room Tip: Don't have a room over the bar if you like to retire early.

Stayed three nights; the room was spacious, clean and comfy with free wifi and safe. All staff were helpful and very friendly and we got great use of the pool. The hotel is ideally located and walking distance to town which is great when needing to go for fitting at the tailors. Free bus is provided to shuttle to the beach. Very professional spa, Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ensure you are close to the pool.

Spent two nights here in September 2012. Hotel is well located with the old town within easy walking distance.
Room and bathrooms are well appointed, nice pool area and a good breakfast. Staff are efficient and courteous.
Arranged hotel transfers both ways with the hotel and the drivers were both safe and punctual
Overall a good experience and value for money.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room at the rear facing the school if you are a light sleeper. It can be a little n...

Stayed at the Hoi An Hotel for the second time, this time in the wing near the restaurants: it's been restored since I was last there in 2008 but to be honest there is not too much evidence of this. This wing is still pretty much the same, seems that most of the restoration has happened in the wing that surrounds the pool, rooms there are more up to date. The hotel is large 160 rooms in all, with a good sized pool, large dining areas and very large gardens, all this very close to the town centre. I like to stay there because you can easily stroll into town at any time. The hotel also has a reciprocal agreement with it's sister hotel at the beach & they run busses back & forth regularly throughout the day, be warned though going to the beach or the pool at this other hotel will cost you, you will pay for the use of the beach bed and the food and drinks there are much more expensive.
The pool at the Hoi An hotel is manned by staff throughout the day providing towels, drinks and snacks from the bar there. The breakfast at this hotel is exceptional, but they have many tour busses stay so the restaurant can get very busy when there is a tour staying, staff still manage to accommodate all and the service does not suffer. Receptions staff are good we had a great deal of help from Van she has good English and is extremely helpful in arranging anything you need. the wing we stayed in is right next to a local school and it was lovely to see the children doing their morning exercised each day.
Our room was a little musty but that was because we asked for a change and it hadn't been prepared, they offered us a room on the third floor with no lift but there was no problem changing to the second floor. All staff are very helpful, so if you can't do stairs be sure to book a ground floor room.
The food at the hotel was very good, but we mostly ate at the local restaurants and cafes, there are so many in Hoi An. I would certainly return but I still can't give it an excellent, sorry. Went to the spa. not really very qualified and just ordinary.

Room Tip: If you can't do stairs get a ground floor room there are no lifts here.

This hotel is right in the town, so handy for shopping. The bedrooms are spacious and a lovely bathroom, but not pleased at having a ground floor room, would have prefered up stairs. Being down you can walk from the room on to the pool area, which was nice. Lighting is a bit dim for reading. The room has safe, fridge etc., Over head fan, you can either have this or air con, but not both. Fan not as good as the air con. Flip flops for slippers. My room had two sun beds to use, as not many around the pool for the number of guests. Pool towels are smaller than usual and a bit thin. Had a white settee in the room with a few marks. The BF was good but a few flies around the food. It also has a spa.

Room Tip: An upstairs room, as the windows cant be left open.

We stayed for two nights while on a small group tour. The room was large and very comfortable. It had everything required. We had two very good nights sleep. There is a great pool. Breakfast offers a wide range of food for all tastes and is excellent. The hotel is very handy to the old town which makes walking very easy. The only issue we would have is that we had shutters in the windows which made the room dark during the day. We could have opened them but there was no view from the room and we were concerned over insects coming in. Apart from that it is an excellent place to stay.

We stay for three nights. The hotel is located very close to the centre of Hoi An, probably the closet hotel to the centre of town. Good sized rooms, clean and comfortable, nice pool area and well maintained gardens. Breakfast was excellent - a great selection of fruits, hot dishes, pastries, breads, etc. The staff were friendly and helpful. I had some difficulty locking a patio door and they attended to it almost immediately.

Room Tip: The hotel doesn't have a lift so staying on the third floor can be a hassle for some.
