The hotel is somewhat dated but that was part of its charm. We had a really big room at the back of the hotel. The view was not great but it was quiet, aside from the antequated air con in the room which kept me awake during the night. The view from the rooftop where breakfast is taken was to die for. It looked like the bank of the River Nile. We didn't use the pool but it looked clean and inviting and a great setting as it was surrounded by the hotel balcony. The best bit about this hotel is the proximity to the old town, approx 5 mins walk. Get up early and visit the market, it is true Vietnam with everyone selling their wares. The smells and sights were the best part of the holidy. We sat at a bar overlooking the river and had 2 beers and a coke for £1.20 while watching the world go by. Just across the street from the hotel is a cobblers, situated in a dusty back yard, worth a visit even if you don't buy anything. I would have loved to have had more time in Hoi An, to me it was what all I had hoped Vietnam would be and I would definately stay at this hotel again

Room Tip: From reading other reviews I would suggest a room at the back

The hotel is well situated and just a quick walk into town. The top floor restaurant is rather nice and breakfast is well stocked.
The rooms are decently decorated and relatively spacious and clean.
However, don't expect a quiet night's sleep! We had three nights here and no amount of ear plugs and industrial ear-defenders (I kid you not!) could block out the noise from the street: if it wasn't moped horns or screaming kids, it was dogs barking and fighting and then, at 6am on the dot, every day, there must have been some sort of political message blurting out at full volume across the town - either that or the woman across the road had her TV at full blast! Unfortunately this constant nightly racket considerably tarnished my opinion of my stay at the hotel. If you had an internal room overlooking the central courtyard (or one at the back of the hotel) you may have been luckier.
Also, although my Vietnamese if far from excellent, you'd hope that reception staff at a well-used tourist hotel would have slightly better English: my partner had suffered an injury as a result of a fall outside and it was a constant battle to try to explain that we needed a doctor, wheelchair etc.

Room Tip: Whatever you do, get a room away from the street, or expect to have NO sleep!!

It has a nice pool! It was hot and this was certainly welcome. There's an open flow bar next to the pool but I didn't hang around to take advantage of that! The rooms were of a good size and that bathrooms were ok. I quite liked the French influenced architecture of the place. We had french doors which opened onto the balcony which was great. The rooms were clean and there was aircon. Breakfast on the rooftop restaurant was also superb. The staff were friendly and there were computers next to the lobby you could use. Laundry may be expensive at the hotel so just cross the street and there will be a shop with a very smiley and cheerful lady shopowner who will charge $1 per kg for laundry. Also, make sure to hire a scooter from around there and pay no more than $5USD for the whole day. You may have to fill up on their green petrol though. The hotel is a short walk over the bridge from the old quarter. I'd stay there again if I were to go back!

Located over on Cam Nam Island, the Van Loi is a beautiful big hotel with comfortable rooms, swimming pool & a large airy roof-top restaurant that serves a fantastic Western/Asian breakfast while you can take in the great rural & river views. The hotel has all the facilities to make an enjoyable stay. It's an easy walk or bicycle ride over the bridge into the old town. My only complaint is that it can get noisy if large groups of Vietnamese tourists stay here.

Room Tip: If it is Vietnamese holiday season ask for a room that does not look over the swimming pool or a roo...

Located slightly out of town the Van Loi is a lovely placed decked out in period, french furniture. The breakfast is vast and delicious, the pool around which most rooms are located is lovely (although the pool bar did seem a bit noisy). All in all a very good stay.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

We stayed here for two nights, great loacation, just a short walk over the bridge and your in the middle of Hoi An markets. Rooms were big and clean and everything you need is there. breakfast is on the top floor and the view is the best! there are no windows and walls and you get all the smells and sounds from the houses below which makes a very interesting morning. The only dislike I had is that the rooms over look the pool and on one night other hotel guests were drinking and srceaming there heads off into the early hours which kept me awake.

Room Tip: Try not to get one overlooking the pool.
