Brilliant stay for just under a week, including trips out to Bac Ha and Halong Bay (organised by the brilliant Hien and her team). Location is excellent, in the heart of the old quarter but tucked away so that come 6pm the place is calm and quiet.
The room (Lemongrass) was more than comfortable in size for one and would have been fine for two. More than big enough bathroom. All spotless and of very good quality for this range of hotel. The best bit is the style - small touches which Hien has very deliberately made (art, furniture, pebbles over shower drains etc) which make it feel unique and homely. Apparently this was to make it feel like a traditional Vietnamese experience - can't claim to know if that has been achieved but it has certainly made for a great place to stay.
Also worth noting the breakfast is delicious (the pho is good) and the dining area has benefited from Hien's design touch too. Makes a nice place to read with a beer too.
All of the staff are very friendly and helpful, and I really enjoyed all recommendations/trips booked through them.
I really hope Hien achieves her dream of having a bigger place in Hoi An, it would be well suited to the atmosphere she is trying to achieve (HAS achieved) - I will be first in line to visit when it opens.
