Although a walk or ride to the old centre, the guesthouse was clean and quiet. The staff were lovely and helpful. We used the bikes from the guesthouse to cycle to the old centre, beach and rice/vegetable fields and found it relatively easy to navigate. The breakfast and cafe meals were plentiful and delicious. We had a friend stay nearby in a hotel. The Betel Garden staff welcomed her and she ate breakfast, used their bikes and was invited to attend a party the guesthouse had put on for their guests which consisted of a three course evening meal of local cuisine with beer and soft drinks free of charge. Could not get better value for money anywhere else.

We spent 3 nights at Betel Garden.The staff are excellent, friendly and helpful, for example they were happy to provide breakfast after the advertised hours when we arrived after a long and late overnight train journey. The room we had was huge, very clean and well equipped. For Vietnam this is a really quiet location. Just what we needed after time in the cities. It does seem a bit out of the way. but the walk to town is easy and only takes 15 mins. Rent a moped and you can get anywhere easily. Also, if you are travelling back to Da Nang, let them book a car for you, it is cheaper and less hassle than a taxi. We were also lucky to be there on one of their party nights when they provided a selection of food and drinks and hosted a group of residents with a great atmosphere. This is a place to chill and relax, not for party animals! Hoi An itself is a great destination to visit.

Room Tip: We booked Deluxe Garden View, though after staying, I think all rooms would qualify.

We stayed 3 nights and wanted to extend but unfortunately couldn't as they were full so book ahead.

The room was huge, clean, well appointed and had a bath. It's a bit of a walk from the old town so we made great use of the free bikes and rented a moped on one day through Betel Garden to explore further afield.

On our second night we were invited to dinner with the family and other guests and we all sat at one very long communal table. We had some great conversation, good food and the Tiger beer just appearing.

It's got a homestay feel with but you are given your own space. We loved it and will stay again when we return to Hoi An.

Absolutely delighted with this lush quiet garden oasis! Fantastic breakfasts in an outdoor setting, very large and comfortable rooms with large porches and chairs, nice private pool area and friendly helpful staff. A good 1 km walk into town was enjoyable and safe. Lots of quiet patio areas to relax and enjoy. Booked a 1 hr massage in my room thru the front desk for $12/ hr that was amazing! Tax ride to a fabulous beach area. Lots of shopping!! Hated to leave!

Betel homestay sets itself apart- it really does not feel like a hotel and yet has all the comforts of a hotel. The grounds are beautiful, the staff are so helpful and friendly, brekkies are delicious and the pool is sparkling. The hospitality is amazing- in the space of our weeks stay, we had 2 complimentary dinners put on for the guests which were great fun and yummy food- It allowed the guests and staff to get to know each other. The homestay is situated less than 10 minutes bike ride ( 20 mins walk) from hoi An. Great commuter bikes and helmets are supplied by Betel - this is a great way to get around. I would like to think that we will be back!

What a find. We approached the hotel by a gravel road and were a little apprehensive but needn't have worried as suddenly we were in this lovely accommodation close to all the action in Hoi An.

The Betel Home Stay has very large rooms suitable for couples or families, a lovely pool and great food at the restaurant. It is a really excellent place to crash after a day's sightseeing in the city.

The staff are exceptional and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.

Thank you for helping make our trip to Vietnam so enjoyable.

Susan, Greg & Will.
