This review is very very belated as my best friend and I actually travelled to Hoi An and had a 4 night stay at Hoi An chic hotel in Feb/March of this year but I just haven't gotten around to writing a review. I think already it's a good sign if 4 months down the track, I am still keen to share the experience that we had at this hotel...I actually feel more obligated than anything. This brilliant hotel and awesome staff deserve every bit of praise and attention I can give.
From the moment we arrived we were overcome with the attention to detail in the hotel and the passion with which the staff take you through everything the hotel has to offer. We actually arrived a day early and the staff were able to give us a room for that night (at the same price that we had booked the remaining nights, months before our stay). During the check-in process we were given watermelon juices and cool washers, whilst we got the low down on Hoi An. Ahhh, just writing this makes me want to go back immediately. The rooms are amazing....so well-designed with everything you need (including robes, beach bags and hats) including a glorious outdoor bath and shower. We both slept beautifully while we were here.
The hotel is perfectly positioned between the beach and the town and is a lovely bike ride either way. The bikes that the hotel provide are perfect, so we never really had a need to use the jeep. What else...the hotel arranged for our washing to be done and organised transfers to the airport which I would definitely recommend.
I think the only thing I can see and this is more an amusing observation than anything else..but as much as I love the band Bread..I think the CD was on all most the whole time we were there. So maybe a few more CDs to add to the music selection would be good.
Now lastly but probably most importantly, a very very special mention goes to the friends that we made during our stay...Chinh and Li! These two touched us in such a way we will never forget. The warmth, kindness, eagerness to learn and friendliness was just infectious. We wanted to take them home (and pretty much the whole staff) home with us. Thank you both once again for truly making our stay...you are both kindred spirits.
You should absolutely book this hotel.
