What you see in the photos are what you get. The staff are very friendly and even invited us for dinner with all the guests on a Friday night (tho if you're a big eater, it may be advisable to eat a little beforehand). Rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast is superb, better than most meals I had in Hoi An ancient town itself.
However, if you are one who prefers walking around more than taking taxis, you might want to consider staying in the centre of Hoi An ancient town or near the beach to see the sunrise (an amazing experience). Hoi An ancient town is only 1km by bicycle but it's a bit of a hassle once you are in town, pulling your bike everywhere.

This was our second stay at the Betel Garden, and again we were blown away by the amazing and tentative staff. This would have to be the friendliest place I have ever stayed. Nothing is too much for any of the staff and they are always happy to enjoy a chat and give advice. The rooms are large and clean. Breakfast is very good - actually all their meals are very good. There is a nice pool, free use of bikes to ride to the beach or into town. We had such a wonderful time we are seriously thinking of returning again next year.

This place is a large garden with a number of bungalows about a mile east of the old town of Hoi An. When you see the shabby surroundings, you may have difficulties believing it is really such a well looked after place, but once your in the premises, it is almost like a miracle. Staff is extremely friendly, the restaurant has good, not overpriced food especially for breakfast (try the pancakes - really yummy) and lunch, and the rooms (we had a bungalow for the four of us, one king sized bed and two small beds for our boys) are spacious, with a fan and a perfectly working air condition and free, continuously working Wifi. As other travellerers have pointed out, moskitos are quite a pest here in the region, so ist good to use the moskito nets provided by the hotel. Apart from the practical use, it is great fun for the kids... The hotel offers you free bicycles which you can use for going to the old town (it is farer away than you first think) and the beach (both about a 10 - 15 minutes bike ride along one of the main roads, traffic is, for Vietnamese standards, pretty low). At the beach, you can get free deck chairs at one of the Restaurants there if you order a drink. We went on from Hoi An to Hué with a private car also organised by the hotel with a driver who evven spoke some English.

What a great place to stay in Hoi An! My wife and I stayed 7 nights and used Betel Gardens as a base to explore the old town, the beaches and the hinterland. The staff are really friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Highly recommend. Oh the room's mini bar? ... 10000VND for long neck local beer.

The Betel Garden Homestay is an oasis in Hoi An. The staff go out of their way to provide the ultimate service. The gardens and pool are a treat. The breakfast is terrific and on Friday night there was a complimentary dinner with beer for all guests. Outstanding. The Betel deserves its' high rating and then some

For the third year running we stayed at Betel Garden for our 12 nights in Hoi An. The Hotel organised a private car for us from Hue and we were greeted at the Hotel by Ms Le the owner, Ms Vang, Ms Hein and Mr Tuan. We were welcomed with a cold passionfruit juice which after the long trip was wonderful. We had room 104 again and as usual the room was fresh and clean. The hotel organised motor bikes for us. Since last year there had been minor changes at Betel that included the addition of 2 bungalows and also modifications to the outside dining area to accommodate more guests at meal times. Mr Aan the head gardener had the gardens superb; his assistant Vinh who we had become friends with was on his last day at Betel and this was a sad day for us as we would have coffee with Vinh so he could practice his English in past years. Ms Le’s eldest son Hai has been taking English lessons and he was keen to engage with us and talk about what everything that was happening and he was a delight to talk with. We were lucky enough to be invited to 3 meals put on by Betel and as other guests have said it is a great opportunity to meet other travellers from all parts of the globe and talk about our travels. Breakfasts were great, they had the best bacon. A normal day for us was an early morning walk, breakfast, then on our motor bikes and down to the lovely An Bang beach to the Soul Kitchen. On our last day there Ms Le invited us to the Reaching Out coffee shop for coffee and biscuits, and Mr Dong came along also. The 12 days went all too soon and it was sad saying good bye to all our friends but we will be back in 2015. Betel gardens is a paradise.

Our family of 4 (14 & 16) had a wonderful 8 night stay at Betel Garden Homestay. After spending a couple of nights in HCMC it was a relief to arrive in the beautiful gardens surrounding the villas. Our rooms were beautiful and clean (we had interconnecting rooms) but the mattresses were a bit firmer that we are used to. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool provided a great place to chill out and there was plenty of choice for breakfast every day. We were also lucky enough to participate in two of the dinners that were arranged, brining together all the guests for a meal. It was wonderful to be able to connect and share with the other guests. The homestay is a little way out of town but only about a 15 minute walk or a $2 taxi ride.
