Its too bad about the rooms, the lobby, pool, and location are great. Rooms are musty and poorly maintained. Shower and.bathroom dank and falling apart. Old thick blankets on bed, paper thin walls, dark hallways and weird layout. I wish we never came here.

Stayed here with my husband and 10 year old daughter and loved it. Huge corner room which was clean and cool, overlooking the pool and surrounding area, with a balcony. The pool was brilliant and provided some much needed relief from the heat/humidity. A lot of tour groups stay here, so there's a lot of traffic and some noise from the pool area, but we didn't worry about it (some others found it noisy). Located on an island, it isn't too far to walk into the old town but we also hired bicycles for $1 a day from the lady opposite the hotel. The area itself is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the town. The bathroom was large and a little tired, but I have found most Vietnamese bathrooms are not kept in the same state of repair as the actual rooms so it didn't bother us. The staff were very helpful and assisted us with contacting Jetstar when we couldn't. The breakfast buffet was quite extensive and the restaurant has a brilliant view of the area. A beautiful place to start the day.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the pool area on the fourth floor. If you want a quieter room, maybe request one...

Very good hotel just minutes walk from beautiful Hoi An and the wonderful markets. Clean rooms and excellent breakfasts on open top floor. Foyer is beautiful with amazing carved wood. Excellent swimming pool and the views from balcony or room windows just lovely. We went for a walk around the hotel streets and meet several of the people who live there and all very friendly.

If you visit Vietnam, you have to visit Hoi An and if you need good accomodation, this hotel is a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Quite hotel just minutes walk from markets and Ancient town of Hoi An.

A very nice hotel, with the highlight being the pool, which was extremely welcome after a hot day sightseeing and visiting the tailor shops in Hoi An. A lovely area over the river from the town. A nice little bar with very cheap drink just over the road from the hotel.

I spent 3 nights in this Hotel,It is about a 10 minute walk to the main area.One of the best things about Hoi an is the total reduction in car noise around the Hotel.I found the room superb,a great swimming pool and a very decent Breakfast.I would definitely stay there again.There is a bycyle rental shop and laundry service right next to the Hotel.We rented bikes and had the Laundry service.I believe next time,I would allow the hotel to do my Laundry rather than at the bike shop,Hoi An is a great place to Veg out for a few days.

The Van Loi is a lovely hotel with good facilities. The location is ideal, being a short walk just over the bridge to the main hustle and bustle of the market, so plenty to see and do. Breakfast in the rooftop restaurant was very good and a wide selection was offered. The rooftop bar is a lovely retreat to chill out and soak up the views of the river and the busy street below. Although I didn’t go in, the pool looked very inviting. The laundry service is a little pricey but the friendly woman directly opposite the hotel will provide a fantastic service for a fraction of the price.

Our room was spacious, offered plenty of storage, very well equipped with all mod cons, huge comfortable beds, good air-con and a large en-suite. I was confined to the room for 3 days due to an accident and the staff were very helpful (although spoke v poor English). Room service was excellent, tasty and inexpensive.

Apart from the language barrier, the only other downside was the noise. Our room was at the front overlooking the busy street, so we heard everything from TVs, shouting, music to dogs barking. There were a few other noisy guests as well, although not the hotel’s fault. I would definitely stay here again, but would ask for a quieter room.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room - avoid those overlooking the main street

Our family of 4 stayed here for 3 nights as part of an Intrepid tour. We had two non-adjoining rooms. Rooms were a good size. The kids bathroom was good, but the shower head in our room faced across the bath, rather than down the bath and consequently there was water everywhere.

We were not able to get wifi in ether of the rooms. Wifi was available and some of the people on our tour had no problems. We often passed people on the walkways between rooms trying to get a wifi signal.

The kids loved the pool.

The hotel is in a good location and only a 10 minute walk from an unlimited amount of shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool have good wifi access.
