This is clearly a pretty recently constructed hotel with fine, clean rooms. At $28 per night for a double room including breakfast, it was quite a steal, and in this price category it was the most luxurious hotel we stayed in during our Vietnam holiday. The rooms are well equipped: they have a safe, hairdryer, TV, water boiler, umbrellas, 3 towels per person, soap, toothbrush, etc.
The beds are comfortable and the room is decently sized. The bathroom is large with a spacious shower. The corner room in which our friends stayed at was a lot smaller than ours though, especially the bathroom.
Breakfast is okay - I ordered the omelette with veggies and cheese one morning and wasn't crazy about the weird cheese part. But the rest are generally fine, all served with a baguette.
There are some noise issues though. The first night our friends had problems sleeping because of a loud water pump noise from the roof, though I didn't really hear much of it. This was fixed the second night though. The other strange noise issue is the lobby and hallway noise, which seems to echo through the hotel and into rooms (on the first floor at least - though first floor, I suppose, is second floor for any Americans out there). During breakfast in the lobby, the loud echoing sound is an issue too, especially if there are little brats involved.
We had some problems with our VietJet flights leaving Hoi An, and the lady at the lobby was very helpful in helping us figure everything out by spending an hour of her time on the phone with VietJet and the language barrier it involved. She made it possible for us to sort everything out without having to rebooking our travel itinerary, which was priceless.
Free bike rental if you ask for it on time. Two laptops in the lobby for internet connection (and wifi all around), free cocktail hour in the evening. Convenient location to town. Great staff.
