“Great Place to stay”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed with Essence last year in Hanoi, which was a good stay and led to us booking the same brand when in Hoi An.
In my view this hotel is even better, it's a great boutique hotel, Vanessa and the team do a fantastic job in welcoming people and ensuring a great stay.
Everyone acknowledges you when leaving and arriving, and all staff are helpful and friendly.
Rooms are spacious, well laid out with good finishings.
Spa was not expensive, particularly given the quality, unusual for a hotel spa!

The only area that could possibly be improved is the availability of sun beds, although to be honest we found that people did come and go quite a bit so we never waited long.

It's about 15 minute walk from town, which was fine for us as we prefer being a little out of the hustle and bustle of town, and a cab costs $1!

Stayed April 2014

We initially booked four nights here, but extended our stay twice. Beautifully appointed hotel, every need met. Especially loved the attentive staff so a big thank you to Vanessa, Tuhey, Tu, Qwa and everyone else (apologies for my poor memory and probable spelling mistakes). P.S. Master Oscar's ego is struggling now isn't treated so royally now!

I had very high expectations about this hotel as I had read every single review on here prior to my 12 night stay.

For only the second time ever in all my travels, my expectations were exceeded. This hotel is a perfect 10. It is a 15 minute walk maximum to town along a very vibrant local street. The hotel setting next to paddy fields is idyllic.

All of the staff, without exception are a credit to this hotel. However Vanessa the guest relations manager is the real gem, worth her weight in gold. I had booked the most basis room which was perfect for my requirements.

The brekkie was so fresh and the nicest I have had anywhere, including several 5 star establishments. I so miss sitting out on their lovely patio. I also had lunch and dinner at the hotel , both of which were excellent.

I spent every day by the stunning pool.I cannot wait to return next year.

ps for your laundry, local trip, airport taxis or food and drink try brown eyes directly opposite the hotel. a really nice Vietnamese family runs this place.

Room Tip: I visited several of the rooms, I preferred the one's facing the paddy field with a balcony.

One of the best value for money hotels in the world we have had the pleasure of staying in. A haven of peace. Well managed. Wonderful, friendly, efficient service and, kind, caring, welcoming staff. We were given an upgrade to a family room with a balcony, which was palatial and very comfortable. The hotel is relatively new, with a very nice indoor/outdoor restaurant with good food. The swimming pool is in relaxing surroundings. It is close to town and has a range of bikes you can use.

Stayed here a couple of nights whilst visiting Hoi An. We found the hotel very good excellent service. The garden and pool area was great with the mentioned pool table. The only down side was that it was a little crowded as it was the Easter break so sometimes difficult to get a space by the pool. Hoi An was a 15 mins walk away or a short taxi ride and well worth a visit. Whilst here we did a cookery course at the Red Bridge cafe which I'd recommend as well. Room was very spacious with a good walk in shower. The breakfast buffet was excellent best so far in Vietnam.

A good clean comfortable hotel, great staff and a good location for seeing Hoi An. Have to give a special mention to the helpful staff that have a good number of competent English speakers. Yes, some may consider it a little far from the centre - but if you enjoy exploring locations and using the hotel as a base - this is a perfect choice. Bikes are free and motorbike hire is cheap and multiple options on doorstep
We got upgrade to balcony room - but unfortunately it was street facing, and therefore was noisy in the morning
Was only there for one night so can't comment on food or spa

Room Tip: Careful on street facing rooms
