Good location and not far walk from old city and river. Terrific breakfast buffet included in room price. Expensive laundry and pricing for airport transfer ($18) when other locations in town are only $12-$13. Internet is spotty. Painfully slow connection in the lobby and good luck trying to use the printer – didn’t work the 4 days I was there. Wireless connection is strong when its working, but constantly going out. Had to go to reception too many times to count to get them to sort out issues. Too cold to use swimming pool and water was green. Charming large rooms with comfy beds and good size clean bathroom. Cleaning staff were a bit noisy in the AM – especially if they seem to be hanging out in front of your room waiting to start their work - we stayed in room 209. Its a good option for the price - cheaper to go through travel site on line than booking direct and also better to book services/tours at other locations in town, hotel seems to inflate prices quite a bit.

Room Tip: avoid the street noise and hotel foot traffic, make sure you dont get a room on ground floor and req...

We arrived here and managed to get a room in the front part of the hotel. Staff were efficient and seemed busy at first. Our room was fine, not the cleanest but perfectly adequate. The room was actually well layed out and a nice place to be and it had a little balcony and satellite TV. Breakfast was great and the hotel has good facilities. At $25 a night it was one of the more expensive hotels we stayed in and I felt it was overpriced for the quality and level of service. Where this hotel fell down in my eyes was the constant attempts to rip us off for money. Now I would expect this from many hotels in vietnam but not one recommended in the Lonely Planet. In the end they accused us of stealing unbrellas, tried to charge extra mini bar items we hasn't used, tried to charge us double for a late check out and finally charged us a lot of money (in Vietnamese terms) for train tickets and taxi to the station in Danang. We booked train tickets with them thinking we would be put on the private carriages which are usually pretty decent but instead they had bought us government train tickets and pocketed the $14 extra they had charged us. They use a little piece of card stapled to the train tickets so it hides the price; it ended up with 8 people sat in Danang station fuming at this pretty devious tactic to hide the fact that these were really cheapo traqin tickets. The taxi was also way overpriced. Staff were okish apart from one young man on reception who is a crook and became agressive when questioned on anything to do with prices etc.... Its a shame as its a nice hotel and otherwise is an ok choice. I have to say though that due to the staff and the way they ripped us (and several other people we spoke to subsequently) off I will be writing to Lonely Planet to recommend they take this hotel out of their book. If you can live with paying over the odds for things and like sharp hotel staff then don't worry too much just make sure you don't put the unbrellas from the room behind the door or you will get accused of theft by a rude receptionist!

Room Tip: Choose the hotel next door for half the price!

great pool and inner courtyard (useless in rainy season), terrific breakfast, rooms not nice at all for what you pay, staff has very short fuse, became very curt with us when we twice refused to stay in a horribly mildewy room, told us to find another hotel, which we did- the vin hung 3 around the corner is a much better value.

Stayed for 3 nights after Nha Trang. Arrived off the night bus at 7:00am. Unfortunatly our room wasnt ready but they let us have breakfast for $2 each which wasnt bad. As our room wasnt going to be ready until 12 the staff let us into another room for a nap until our room was ready which was great.
The room was fairly clean although a little dated, we constantly had to battle ants, which was a slight annoyance but being in south east asia something im now very used too.
Had a mini bar selection and some snacks for a reasonable price.
We had air con and a little balcony facing the main road which was noisy at times but didnt effect us too much.
There is a swimming pool which we didnt use.
Very near to the old town, about 10mins walk but there are 4 banks and restraunts close by. Also lots of tailors (the hotel has one next door)
The staff were great but sometimes a little too imposing, I dont mind general banter but always felt there was a motive to get you to go somewhere.
The bad side was, like others have mentioned that if you go to breakfast too late the food is a little stale. And there arnt many tables.
Also we booked the bus to Hue from the hotel for $6 each not a bad price, which was supposed to be a hotel pick up, instead of a pick a chap comes on his motorbike and makes you follow him for a 10min walk to where the pick up is lol!
Would definatly stay again as the price was reasonable, laundry cheap and free wifi.

In all honesty I was quite skeptical about most tailors in Hoi An, but after speaking to an Irish couple at the hotel who were very pleased with results of thanh van 1 hotel tailors, I had to see for myself. I gave them 3 pictures of dresses I wanted made and not only were they great quality and beautifully made they were about half the price of most the tailors around. On top of this they are so friendly and made me feel so welcome. Finally I have bought 6 dresses 2 skirts 2 tops and a blazer... I am ecstatic
