Our stay at the Sunflower Hotel was one of the best on this trip by far. Not only did they pick us up from the bus station, but they also took us to us next bus when we left and, even better, there were little flowers on our beds when we arrived.
The hotel is located about midway between the old town and the beach, and for as little as $1 you can rent a bicycle or motorbike ($5) for the day and explore to your heart’s content. The beach is only about 5km to the right of the hotel, so you can be standing with you feet in the glorious white sand in no time at all.
While this hotel was a little more expensive that some of the others we’ve stayed in ($8 per person, per night), we got a lot for our money. Our room was spacious, with three queen-sized (very comfy) beds, an ensuite bathroom, cable TV and a fridge. Included in the price of the room is also an incredible free breakfast, use of hotel pool and free WiFi (although it didn’t actually work in our room which was a little annoying). There are also four computers and a printer downstairs in the lobby for hotel guests to use.
The staff are friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is great, as it’s mostly full of over travellers, which makes for some interesting conversations. Oh, and the food in the restaurant is delicious.
Definitely the place to stay if you ever happen to find yourself in Hoi An.
