“Pool is too hot but everything else is perfect!”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

It was so hot in hoi an when we were there, the villas and rooms were just beautiful at this lovely homestay. However, the pool was so warm that you didn't feel refreshed at all. Lucky the staff were so friendly and helpful who made our stay so enjoyable

We've just had 5 nights at Betel Garden Homestay and are so glad we decided to stay with the BGH Family. Everything from the airport pick up, the welcome, the very comfortable room, the tasty and reasonably priced food and drink, the free BGH dinner with staff and other guests and finally the farewell was terrific. Being a small property with 6-8 rooms allows for a very intimate experience that you may not get in other places. Thank you to Mr. Dong, Mr. Tong and Ms. Vang for a great first stay as we plan like many others to stay with the BGH Family once again.

We stayed here for 3 nights during our trip to Vietnam, and had a fabulous time. We arranged a pick up from Da Nang airport on arrival, which all went smoothly. Upon arrival at the Homestay we were invited to join the Owners for a 'family meal', as their treat, together with all the other guests. We thought this was a lovely touch and was a great opportunity to meet the other people staying at the Homestay and the Owners. The rooms themselves are spacious and clean, and have a terrace area outside with chairs and lounging seats where you can read. Importantly the Homestay also has a pool, which is lovely and a welcome relief from the heat (which when we were there was approx. 38'C). We also had our laundry done while we were there, which was done quickly and well and at local prices.

The main strength to this hotel is the people, everyone was incredibly helpful, friendly and accommodating all the time that we were there. We can't praise them enough!

After a rather daunting trip from the airport we turned into an amazing green oasis of superbly kept tree's and vines, and much to my surprise there were Vietnamese style bungalows, which were spotlessly clean, but it doesn't' stop there. The amazing welcome and beaming smiles of everyone one we met, nothing was too much trouble right up until our very early departure - 5.30am. We had a breakfast hamper and a taxi were all ready and waiting. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: Ask for garden bungalow

One of our travel mates found Betel Garden Homestay on Trip Advisor. It sounded great but we were unsure. What I should do is tell the world that it's not very good, to keep it as our secret. But I can't because it wouldn't be fair on the wonderful owner and staff we befriended. The homestay was absolutely beautiful and the villas were great, although the two couples we were traveling with found their beds a little hard. Even this problem was addressed by the owner, Le, who retrieved an extra sponge mat she had, for one room and went out and bought another one for the other. There are eight villas, with two under construction.

Hein, Duong and Vanh and the other staff were like one happy family and treated us like family as well. This is a fantastic reflection on Le's management and HR management skills. Nothing was too much trouble and they all would take on a variety of responsibilities. Their English skills are fantastic. We had lots of conversations with them about their families and lives and they were keen to find out about our families and lives too. They became our Vietnamese mates. Duong also had a really cheeky sense of humour. Le put on a free dinner for patrons staying at the homestay, with free beer and softdrink. Le's English skills weren't quite as good and she was a little shy but reeaally nice. She gave us a present of two lanterns when we left.
Hoi An and Betel Garden Homestay Villas in particular, were a real highlight of our Vietnam holiday.

We recently spent 3 nights in a bungalow room at Betel Garden. It was comfortable and spacious. The setting was lovely with well maintained gardens and tucked away from the busy streets. Pool area was clean and inviting. Free bikes available to borrow are a bonus - we cycled to the beach, the fishing village and back through the rice fields. Taxis are cheap if you don't want to walk into the old town. Very friendly staff and a great spot for meeting fellow travellers, especially, if like us, you prefer a more intimate holiday experience and try to avoid the large resorts.

Our second time back to Hoi An and we wouldn't have stayed anywhere else, they remembered us from three years ago, always addressed us by name and took excellent care of us throughout. The garden setting is a lovely environment and the addition of very new and nicely finished pool has made this the clear choice in Hoi An. Free bicycles get you anywhere in Hoi An you want to go, what's not to love? Book it and you'll be back just like us.

Room Tip: get the deluxe rooms if they're available.
