Hotel Name: Daisy An Bang Villa
Address: The Alley 150, Nguyen Phan Vinh Street, An Bang Beach, Cam An, Hoi An, Vietnam
I stayed at the Daisy An Bang Villa in Hoi An. I booked it for its location at An Bang Beach, and the online rate was 458,985 VND ($19.90 USD) per night.
An Bang is a beach neighbourhood of Hoi An, about 5km from the old town area. An Bang has become a popular expat area, so there are more bars and cafes here than you would see in a regular neighbourhood.
The Daisy An Bang Villa is in an alley between the main road (Nguyen Phan Vinh) and the beach, so it’s a great location if you are wanting to spend more time on the beach. The villa is clearly marked with signs, and navigatable via Google Maps.
In addition to being in a quiet line, the villa is hidden by greenery.
I was visiting An Bang at a weird time. This was during the pandemic when international travel had stopped, and there was a typhoon a few weeks before. With the traveller numbers down and the beach still a mess from the storm, the villa was in the midst of impromptu renovations. I have come to expect disruptions in this crazy year. I’ve arrived at hotels that have since closed down, or where I was the only guest. I think I was the only guest here as well, and one of the workers called the manager to open up a room.
I got an upstairs bedroom with a view of the pool.
I got a double room with private bathroom.
The room has a fan and air conditioning, and the bed was comfortable. There is free wifi at the villa, and I got a good reception in my room.
Drinking water is provided in reusable glass bottles, and there are tea and coffee making facilities.
There is a small but useful work desk with not too much clutter.
The bathroom was spacious, with natural lighting and plenty of bench space around the sink. It has a walk-in shower with the toilet at the other end.
There is a small pool on the property that has a nice tree landscaped into the pool setting.
At the time of my visit, there wasn’t a breakfast service available due to lack of guests. There are plenty of places to eat nearby.
Overall I enjoyed my stay here, and hopefully, the villa will thrive again when travel resumes. If you have never been to Hoi An before, I would personally recommend staying in or near the old town first. That is the main attraction of Hoi An and you should make the most of your time there. If you have been to Hoi An before, then consider the beach areas. If you do stay on the beach, it’s easy enough to get a Grab taxi to the town.
I have stayed in An Bang before, and here is my review of the Hoi An Corner Homestay.
