We stayed here thinking that we would be at the beach a lot more because of our 2 kids. We ended up spending most of the time in Hoi An and doing the beach beach twice in 4 days but only a couple of hours at a time. The rate was exceptionally cheap for 2 adjoining rooms so we actually didn't expect too much in terms of service and rooms. We tried to organise a shuttle from Da Nang but that didn't quite workout so we got a cab from the Airport. 500 000 VND. The staff were friendly like everyone in Vietnam. Not the greatest command of english but very helpful. The hotel and rooms reminded me of some of these movies set during the war. Not the most modern but maybe was quite nice during the 70's. The rooms did have AC which worked fine. No safe, so we had to keep things in the main safe at reception, it worked out OK. The bathrooms were a bit sad though. We were missing a shower curtain in one of the adjoining bathrooms but ended up using the one in the other bathroom. The lighting in the bathrooms wasn't up to my wifes standard but we didn't bother making a fuss about these things as this was not a 5 star hotel. I'm guessing most people are the same. The pool is quite a non event, tiny and not the cleanest, definitely not inviting. Don't book this hotel based on the fact that it has a pool.
The breakfast buffet was OK. We did our My Son tour through the hotel and it worked out quite nicely. There are other tour operators in Hoi An that offer more tours with different rates so don't think that you are obliged to just use the hotel's options. Taxis to/from the Old town run for about 80 000 VND. The restaurants in the Old town are better than the local beach ones, which is why we would definitely stay in the Old Town for our next stay and just catch cabs to the beach instead of the other way around.
