The hotel looks and feels old, given its architecture and interior design. Makes you feel you're back in the 60s. The room is big enough to be considered a suite in other hotels, but sadly there were mosquitoes and the bathroom had hairs on the tub and toilet when I checked in. The breakfast buffet was not so great.
Unique Quality: Right at edge of the old town, beside the post office. Has a big pool and its own zen spa but I did not avail of them.
Located just outside the main Hoi An Town, a short 5 mins walk will lead you to endless dining and shopping during the day.
This is an excellent budget hotel. It's a bit worn around the edges, but the service is good, and the buffet breakfast is great. It's also very well located, and has a large pool. I stayed there for 4 nights in April 06, and while the bed was a little hard (most are in Vietnam anyway) I couldn't fault the service.
If you visit Hoi An to see the ancient town, this hotel is the best. Its not in the ancient town, but you can easily reach there on foot. The rooms are big, and staffs are friendly. Its not so unique, but comfortable to stay in.
Unique Quality: courtyard with a pool, restaurant, bicycle rental
This hotel was the best. Huge room with lovely cool terracotta tiles and a great view out over the pool. Convenient to the old town, markets and restaurants
Unique Quality: Spacious bathroom,really comfy big bed and huge breakfast with a good selection to fill you up for the day
The one and only lodge around the vibrant Central Market area, only 10 meters away from Tu Bon River (all other backpacker's hotels are in the outter part of the city -- Hai Ba Trung St. -- 500 meters away), so Minh A is like the best location you can find. The people here is also very helpful and friendly, no overpriced charges for tourists. The rate is a little less then 10 USD/Person/Night. The lodge itself is clean and well-kept, experience living a the REAL Vietnamese's authentic ancient house.
Anyway, call for a reservation at least 2 days before you wanna check in. The rooms are always full, only 4 rooms (shared bathroom, fan) availbable.
Unique Quality: See for yourself, it's worth staying believe me.
Wood-constructed, chinese-style furniture, room with balcony takin' view of Central Market.
Directions: Next to Central Market
This is the biggest hotel in hoi an and is within easy walking distance of the town.
Our accommodation was fine, nice bed and bathroom. The Hotel itself was very disappointing. The staff were totally disinterested in anything. We arrived at lunch time and went into the restaurant for a drink and a snack after our journey. There was no one there! After about 5 mins a young girl came and we got some drinks. Next morning we needed an early breakfast and were told it was OK by reception. Arrived in the dining room at 6-30 AM - no staff and no food.
Also there was building work during the day which caused a lot of dust and some noise. I think they were demolishing one of the buildings.
I have been planning a two week trip through Vietnam, and have been told I am trying to see more than time allows.
Here is an outline of what I had hoped to do.
Am I biting off too much?

It is doable, I did roughly the same in 22 days but without flying in between (road and rail). The only question I would ask myself,please don't get upset and don't get me wrong(I'm 61 myself), is are you fit enough for all that?. You are talking about a lot of travelling in just 17 days and a lot of miles.There is a lot of hustle and bustle and a lot of noise in Vietnam that takes it out of you. You may be better off flying directly from HCMC to Hanoi and giving yourself a rest day somewhere.Whatever your choice, have a great trip, Vietnam is very special.
I would spend one more day in Hue instead of Sai Gon.
Hue: 1 day by boat to see the tombs, a half day for the citadel, and another half day to see the market, pagoda etc.
