We stayed at the Hai Au hotel for 11 nights so that we were in Hoi An for the full moon celebrations. The hotel was ideally situated, about a 10 minute walk to the central market, close enough to be handy for the old town but far enough away not to be disturbed by any noise. If you can coincide your stay in Hoi An with a full moon, the atmosphere is wonderful as many of the pedestrianised streets and buildings are illuminated by Chinese lanterns, which adds to the atmosphere of the old town. The Hai Au hotel is also situated about a 4km bike ride from the beach, and bikes can be rented direct from the hotel for $1 a day. All the staff without exception are very friendly and helpful and speak excellent English. Within a short time of arriving they know your name and always greet you whenever they see you, personally by name, which makes you feel more like friends than guests. Our room was on the top floor, with a large corner balcony, and was very spacious and well-equipped, including a laptop and earphones for Skyping. There are safety deposit boxes newly installed in the rooms. Breakfast was very good, and was served buffet-style with eggs cooked to order and the restaurant also offered a good range of Eastern and Whesbtern food, well cooked and reasonably priced. The one draw back is there is no elevator, although there are only 3 floors and they encourage you to ask for assistance with your bags. We arranged a couple of massages through the hotel, with a local spa, Aloe Vera, which were generously discounted and were extremely good.
