This place enjoys a great location in a peaceful garden across the bridge from busy ancient Hoi An. Our spacious room was in the main building with views over gardens and river. The rooms were furnished in tradtional Vietnamese style, some of the furniture was so oldfashioned , it was almost cool! The bed was very,very hard, too hard (and we do like firm beds), and had only a top sheet, no blanket or duvet! We had expected a safe in the room, after arguing a bit with the reception , three men brought and installed a safe! There was adequate wardrobe and drawer space, we had access to a small balcony, and the TV had BBC world,but an electric socket was lose, almost coming off the wall. The bathroom had a very good hot water supply, with excellent pressure, good for showers, but the wash basin drained extremely slowly, there was sometimes a bad smell from the drains, and the shower curtain was very grubby. Wifi was almost non existent in the room, you had to go into the lobby for a decent connection!
The resort is located in a big tropical garden right by the river. There is no gym, but there is a nice, sparkling, clean pool, which looked very inviting- alas, we didn't have time to use it during our four night stay.
Staff generally spoke little English, were mostly very sweet and tried to make you welcome, both at the front desk, and in the restaurant. We weren#t too impressed with the breakfast. The Vietnamese selection was much better in other hotels, the fruit was sometimes of mediocre quality, and juice and coffee were watered down/ very weak. They did cook eggs to order, they had some cheese and ham, and several homemade, very runny jams, but sometimes the toaster did not work, and then the baguette was like chewing on cardboard!
Overall we had a quite good stay at the hotel.,If only they could improve and upgrade a few things it would be a pleasure to stay there, they have such an enviable riverside setting, and should make the most of it!
