“Oasis in the ricefields”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Nice located hotel in the middle of the rice fields. Its the upmarket hotel of Mai Chai. Nice rooms, decend pool, wifi in room is good, staff is friendly, breakfast is good, if you are here its all about cycling or walking in Mai Chau Valley. The Hotel has good bikes. Of course the rooms are expensive compared to other places. But thats inevitabel if you stay in a luxury hotel.

Just stayed here for 2 nights and absolutely loved the hotel. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable. Some nice touches such as fresh flowers & fruit. We had a swimming pool view which was stunning with the scenery behind.
All staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The food is lovely. We had a massage which was great too.
Would highly recommend this place.

We stayed two nights at the lovely Mai Chau lodge as part of a cycling holiday of North Vietnam.
We found the staff to be friendly and attentive and we particularly liked the way the lodge was built and the rooms furnished to be in keeping with the local environment. Our room had a balcony and although overlooked a busy road we had no problem with noise. It is set in the most beautiful valley of Mai Chau and we loved biking around the many local villages nearby and around the rice fields. The Lodge has a very nice swimming pool and we particularly enjoyed being able to have breakfast outside, with great service. It was the 'special touches' that set the lodge apart from other accommodation, each evening a small container with a chocolate and a card with a special verse would be left in the room. then on leaving we were presented with a small handcrafted bag containing local rice.

Spent a night in Mai Chau Lodge. It was the second time I have been there. However last time I was in the outdoor rooms they used to have over the lake. Now they have been removed and they only offer rooms in the main building.

Rooms are nice, they keep that village feeling and are a little bit dated. Bathroom is correct and what you would expect of a good lodge.

Our room was facing the road, and it is a bit noisy. However during the night it wasn't a problem. The pool is ok and the restaurant serves nice local food. Staff are very friendly.

We booked a car with the lodge from Hanoi and driver was very good for Vietnamese standards.

Do the ciclying tour early in the morning, is a nice way to see the surroundings which are amazing. We also tried a massage that was ok.

All in all probably a good choice for those of you who haven't been to the rural north :)

A lovely location for a lovely hotel with lovely staff. We enjoyed our stay here and wish we could have stayed longer. The local villages are an added attraction and the walks around the area are worth the effort. Came across a lovely little bar where the locals made us very welcome,

Mai Chau Lodge is located in paradise like location with excellent possibilities for excursions also by bike. Food is of excellent quality. The only shortcoming is the nearby main street serving as a route for trucks as well.No need for an alarm clock in the morning for the rooms adjacent to the street. I still would go there again.

Room Tip: Book rooms to the rice fields. The rooms to the streets are too loud in the morning.

This small lovely hotel is a treat. The building id a bit dated but the staff and small touches make the stay a pleasure. The facility is clean, well kept and well managed. The restaurant was was good but ordering off the menu was a better choice than some of the included meals.

Side trips to the local villages and town were interesting and fun.

Room Tip: Pool view with deck is best

Dear Mr. G.,

On behalf of our hotel staff, I would like to let you know how delighted we were to receive your kind words of praise.

Given the nature of the hotel business, the hours are long and demanding. Day or night, good service depends upon people willing to give their best at all time. That is why it is truly rewarding when a guest recognizes our staff's effort, and take the time to write such a nice review on Trip Advisor. Your feedback is extremely important as it helps us to continually improve and provides a memorable experience to our guests.

However, I duly noted your comment regarding the set menus. Please accept my sincere apologies. We vary the set menus everyday and I feel sorry that you were disappointed with the ones you were served during your stay (but I am pleased that you are not questioning the quality of the cuisine as you seem to have enjoyed the dishes from our A-la-Carte menu).

I hope that you had a great time in Vietnam and I look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you and your friends again very soon!

Kindest Regards,

Mae Monnet
