“Always have a solution for you”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

The staff went out of their way to change our room configuration at no extra cost to get us a triple bed room for our kids near our double room with pool view.
Exchange rate pretty good for a hotel and you have confidence your not getting ripped off.
Pool quite nice, gardens lovely, very cheap laundry and motor bike hire across road.
Only 5-10 min walk to get into the heart of old town and 15 min scooter to beach which is warmer than the pool. Lovely waves and can jump them in a jet ski.
When wife was sick they arranged a doctor within half an hour.
Breakfast was really nice with eggs any way you like and a pancake station that do banana and chocolate , our fav.

Room Tip: Pool view is best.

Where to start! We booked a transfer with the hotel which didn't turn up, the front desk manager then had the nerve to imply it was our fault because we didnt call when our flight was delayed, even though every other hotel managed to figure it out! They gave us a free set meal in the hotel restaurant but it was so gross I wish we hadn't bothered, really oily spring rolls and soggy vegetables.

If you book the Junior Suite room - buyer beware! The photos on the website and description only match a few of the rooms, most don't have the outdoor area/pool view and are much smaller. We complained and luckily got moved for our second night, but again were made to feel we were in the wrong because apparently we hadn't requested the outdoor area and pool view. Make sure you ask specifically for these features because the other junior suites are about 6 sqm smaller and you can hear all the traffic from the road. If you can't get the junior suite rooms facing the pool, just book a deluxe room as they have balconies and are a good distance from the road. The breakfasts are fine, but under no circumstances eat at the restaurant - worst food in Vietnam! Finally, we had one 7up from the minibar which was never replaced and they ran out to our taxi as we were leaving to charge us for it again which was pathetic and embarrassing. Overall the pool is nice, location fantastic and rooms good when you get the one you paid for, but no traveller likes to feel like they are just a big hassle for the staff when asking for what you've paid for!

I first came to Hoi An Hotel with an Intrepid group in 2001, and despite having a cheaper room across from the school, loved the place so much that I came back with my friend, in a Superior room which with taxes came to over $90 a night.
Positives: Hoi An is still a charming town, and Hoi An Hotel is well located with lovely well kept grounds. The room and the breakfast compare with the 3 star hotels we have stayed in VietNam at much cheaper rates.
Negatives: Room: a lot of noise! In the Charm Wing near the dining areas and kitchen etc. It is 6 am and we can hear the staff calling out to each other. Also the Hotel has had 3 wedding receptions in the last 2 days, complete with MC and amplified music. They do stop by 8 pm but yesterday there was loud music in the middle of the day and instead of a siesta I just got a headache. At this point I must add that the wooden shutters and sliding doors do not insulate from noise, including the squeaky electric cart coming to pick up luggage!
They have an inventory of what is in the room. I was concerned that the 945,000 dong kimonos were nowhere to be found and that we were going to be charged for them. Queried this, were told “they don’t have them in this wing”… but they are still on the inventory, along with the cups, glasses, etc… and a warning that we get charged with anything lost or removed
A lot of ants in the room, at one point all over this laptop. When we arrived there was still sand on the floor which got on our feet and in the bed.
Bathroom: poor water pressure in the shower and small and thin towels.
Reception staff: about 6 and 7, not friendly, I felt I was disturbing them with my query.
Internet: very spasmodic, have had better in the Central Highlands and in Hoi An Old Town.
We are planning a return visit to Hoi An but doubt we will stay here.

Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple

The greatest advantage to this hotel is its proximity to the historic World Heritage City (2 blocks ago) while offering a sanctuary from the bustle and noise of the town. The room was on the small side with a window overlooking their pool and courtyard. The breakfast (included) was good but not excellent. The bar just mediocre. On the other hand, the staff was very helpful and friendly. We rented bicycles on site and took a pleasant ride to the beach about 2-3 miles away. Still the greatest advantage to the hotel is that you cross a street and are a block from the old city where you can spend your day wandering among store, visiting the market, enjoying good food, and traveling back in time.

Room Tip: I would request an inside room overlooking their garden.

What makes this hotel a winner is the location. Located on the fringe of the ancient city it makes it easy to walk to all the local attractions and restaurants.

We found our room to be large and well presented. Realising our room was over the laundry delivery access and near a main road we thought we were in for a rough nights sleep. The double glazed windows ensured a great nights sleep.

The breakfast included with the accommodation was a great way to start the day. Each morning we were surprised to have different fruits and juices.

The Hoi An hotel is a great place to relax at the end of a busy day.

Stayed here for four nights in December 12. The hotel is in a really good location for exploring Hoi An. The facilities within the hotel are very good- the pool is a nice place to hang out in the afternoons. The staff are extremely helpfull (they printed out a lot of stuff for me after we had officially checked out and were waiting for a car).

Laundry is bit steep, but there are several across the road that do a good job. Breakfast was OK, but could be better.

There is free shuttle service between the hotel and the Hoi An beach resort, so you can get to the beach in the morning and come back to town for lunch easily.

Room Tip: There is a school very close by, and the noise can be quite loud in the afternoon. The rooms nearer...

I have visited Hoi An four times and on all occasions i have used this hotel. I have been here alone and with large groups and have recommended it to friends, all of which have thanked me later. If you are unsure where to stay this hotel is a no-brainer, stay here.

Ok, the reasons:
1. Location! The hotel is right in the centre of town and is surrounded by local conveniences. There is a few laundries across the street if you don't want to pay the hotel prices, and there is even what i believe is the best value for money spa right across from the main gate.

2. Service. This hotel is on par with the vietnamese 5 star hotels in terms of the quality of customer service provided by reception and the other functions of the hotel.

3. Rooms. The rooms are nicely appointed with all the conveniences you would expect of a 4 or 5 star hotel. WIFI etc are of course free and a decent (not great) speed.

4. Pool. The hotel has a beautiful pool area to chill out in and have a quality cocktail after a long day cycling or shopping etc.

The only negative and area that i think they need to improve is the breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Whilst it has most of the normal Vietnamese versions of a hotel breakfast, it is not up to the standard i have had in other hotels in Vietnam. However, points 1-4 will bring me back to this hotel again next time anyway.

Room Tip: Choose the ground floor rooms that open out onto the pool area, they are by far the best rooms! Also...
