“Adequate accommodation in good location in Hoi An”
Reviewed 3 December 2010

For $25 USD per night this hotel delivers a good nights sleep in an excellent location in Hoi An, walking distance from all the sights in the old city.

Rooms were adequate, though on the dark and musty side.

Most of the staff were perfectly friendly except for one receptionist who was consistently rude.

Free internet access and public computers were available and the pool was fine.

For a decent place to sleep in Hoi An this hotel was perfectly acceptable.

We checked in just fine after a pick up from the airport for $15. Room was $32 for a triple share. Reception was friendly, but not very helpful when it came to restaurant suggestions when she recommended pretty much the entire old town instead of a specifix restaurant.

Breakfast was full of fruit, pastry and fried rice. Coffee is pretty weak, which strange since there is such good coffee all around. Or perhaps it's because i've adjusted to the coffee in Vietnam now.

Bed was very comfy, but room w bit bare. Worst thing is the room was mouldy so much so that my friend was getting sick from it.

When we asked the first receptionist for price of bus to hue-she said $5 per head, but when we subsequently booked with another front desk clerk, she quotes $6. I get the feeling that they're trying to scam you all, therefore didn't want to go back for more questions or bookings.

We read about this place in Lonely Planet and liked the fact that there was a swimming pool, breakfast buffe and had a great location. The price for our double room was just 24 USD and considering that it was breakfast included it was a good alternative. The hotel asked if we wanted pick up from danang and for only 15 USD we had a private taxi pick us up for the hour drive from Danang. You can probably go alot cheaper by a bus but it was nice to know that we would arrive straight to the Hotel.

The breakfast buffe was the best so far in asia. Fresh fruit, good tea and nice omeletts made evey morning a nice time of the day.

We went to Hoi An to tailor some clothes and the same family that runs the hotel runs a tailor store right next to it. We went to at least five different shops comparing prices, quality and service and found no place better than Thanh van cloth shop. I made 1 suit, 6 shirts and a blazer and my girlfriend made 2 dresses, 2 shirts and a jacket. Everything was really nice and the service was outstanding! They took really good care of us and we really enjoyed beeing in the shop speaking with the wonderful ladies. I would come back to this shop if I went to Hoi An again.

Really nice place!

Manager was attentive on arrival, but as soon as we went to his tailors he didn't muster a smile again.

Trying to leave Hoi An was a nightmare. There internet didn't seem to let you book flights, and for all transport they charged around $20 commission.

Building works started in the room next door at 7am every morning.

So many hotels in Hoi An are better - do not stay here...!!!

sorry to say, hotel itself is not bad but they played with the exchange rate. they give you half price in USD half in local currency so we thay convert they over charge you. It happened to my bill and also to my friend bill. Obviously people pay right before leaving it so nobody complains!!! They took me 10 dollars more and 6 dollars to my friend on 2 nights stay... So annoying!!! the manager is involved in it, cause she was laughing when we submitted her our complaint! So bad.

We stayed at the Thanh Van 1 in the beginning of Oct 2010 and were pleased with the hotel choice. I chose it based on a tip from the Thorn Tree forum. We were not sure which area of Hoi An to stay in: Cua Dai beach, along the river, or close to old city. We were happy we stayed on the edge of old city because it rained so the beach was not an option, and we could walk within a few minutes whenever we wanted without taking a shuttle. We passed by the other hotels that I was considering and were so happy with our choice.
We had rooms 206 and 207. 207 smelled moldy at first but the when the air conditioner was running it was fine. We also looked at rooms 205 and 103 and decided to keep the two rooms on the second floor. They are decent sized rooms and the bathroom has a tub. Our rate was $38/per night and the airport pickup was $18/one way. They were waiting for us at the airport with a sign. The hotel lobby has 3 computers and the breakfast was fresh and exactly what we needed. Coffee, baguette, fruit, juice, eggs, rice, ham or bacon and donuts.
The hotel owns a tailor shop immediately next door which is convenient if you plan on having anything made. We used a tailor in old city and had to go back a few times to make adjustments so having used the next door tailor might have been more convenient.
The hotel also arranged 2 day trips for us without a hassle and we compared prices to a travel agent to make sure we weren't overpaying. Overall I would recommend this hotel to other travellers and I would stay there again.
