My girlfriend booked this hotel for our long weekend getaway. This was the first time I did not know what to expect from a hotel as I normally do the bookings. The hotel is situated in the old town driving up to the entrance was not that impressive. It is tucked between old shop houses with road construction. Boy was I wrong………………….
Once through the gate, it opens up into a French colonial compound. We were welcomed by the hotel stuff who briefed us on the hotel facilities and also things to do in Hoi An. We were they showed to our suite which was on the third floor facing the garden. The room is what one would expect from a Spa Resort without a balcony. This is compensated by a sitting area in front of the suite where one can sit, have a drink and just wine down after a long days walk.
Breakfast was good, giving guest the choice of European breakfast and also local delicacies. Go early if you want to get a table on the side facing the river. I cannot comment on the Spa as we spent most of our time wondering around the old city.
Location is far enough from main shopping streets but near enough where it can be reached with a 10 minute walk. The hotel also provide guest with bicycles on a first come first serve basis. We did not experience shortages during our 4 day stay.
Pool – There is a nice pool to chill during the hot afternoons.
Rooms are made twice a day – morning and late afternoon. They leave a nice fruit basket after making your bed in the evening.
One problem I had during the stay was the A/C. It was extremely humid and there was one day where the A/C stopped working which I suspect was due to the high humidity. It was fixed after our return from dinner.
Overall a good stay.
