“The Van Loi Hotel - a real vietnam hotel”
Reviewed July 24, 2007

This was my second stay at the Van Loi Hotel and it was just as enjoyable as the first one. The hotel staff is young and friendly. They work hard to make sure your stay at thier hotel is a pleasent one. The buffet breakfest which comes with the room is the best around Hoi An. Dinner on the roof top terrace with that great view of the area is fabulous particularly at night.

If you stay over 5 or 6 days you will find yourself making friends and getting know the culture of Vietnam upclose. A daily walk around in the Village of Cam Nam is a wonderful way to experience daily life in the Vietman. Everyone is so busy and you can see the different trades as you pass by the different house and shops which usually are combined. You should stop at one of the several coffee shops to have one of those delicious glasses of coffee, which will surely give you a chance to learn a few Vietnamese words.

In the evening I usually try to stop at the Star Bar located on the hotel's 5th floor terrace. The view of the Hoi An area, cold beer and great music will leave you with lasting memories of your stay in Vietnam.

After my original hotel had been overbooked the Van Loi hotel was recommended to me as a reasonable second choice. It didnt take long for me to be grateful that my first choice was unavailable.
The Van Loi is set a little apart from the main part of town over a bridge but is a pleasant 10 minute walk to the centre of Hoi An. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and my standard room was a good size with a spacious bathroom and very clean.
One of the best things about this hotel is the breakfast terrace on the top floor, and not just for the all round views either. The buffet has an egg station where you choose how you would like your fresh eggs cooked, western, asian and continental fare that would put many a 4 or 5 star hotel to shame so is not a place to stay if you are on a diet. Internet is available next to reception and there is a small pool too. An airport transfer was easily arranged from Danang at a reasonable rate which takes around 40-45 minutes.
This is one hotel that I will definitely return to, a charming place in a charming town.

Stayed here for four nights. Our first room was great, overlooking the pool and large, but had one major problem, glass was missing in the upper sections of the window so when a neighbouring property put the radio on through a loud speaker at 5.30 am it was AWFUL! Asked for another room and ended up with a much quieter, bigger room. Breakfast was fine and served on a roof terrace over looking the area - very special views. Staff were lovely and friendly. Rooms a bit dated but clean and comfy and the pool area great.

  • Liked — Friendly staff

We stayed at the Van Loi as part of a family tour. Although it's by no means luxurious, we found it to be ideal for our needs. The rooms are clean and quite spacious. Initially the tiled floor didn't look inviting but turned out to be practical for wet feet from the rainy days and the lovely pool right outside our door (book a ground floor room). The hotel is on an island about 700 - 800 metres from the old quarter along a dirt (muddy) road - the hotel provides coats or umbrellas for the frequent jaunt back and forward. There's free, if a little slow, internet access in the foyer and a restaurant on the roof with stunning 360 degree views that serves a typical, satisfactory breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful. When running back and forth for fittings for tailor-made clothes, the kids were quite safe staying behind at the Van Loi.
Be sure to get up at 5.30 am one morning to immerse yourself in the madness of the fish/food market by the river.
