We stayed three nights last year and decided then that next time in Vietnam we would go straight back to Moons place. We stayed fifteen nights this time as we love Hoi An and and we were treated like family. Nothing was any trouble and always smiling. It is not to far out of the action with plenty of eating places around. We rode the Bikes every day and went everywhere. Moon and her husband are the best and their staff are amazing. Moons Tailoring and Dress making skills are exceptional. B/fast was always to look forward to and it didn't matter what time. Room always cleaned on a daily basis with fresh towels and water. We could go on but value for money this place wins hands down every time. I think everything else has already been covered in previous reviews. Great home stay, great staff,great b/fast,great price. Will definitely be back there next year.
Amazing 11 night stay and some fantastic tailored clothes.
I feel like I'm letting a big secret out of the bag, but I owe it to Moon and Michael and the rest of the staff. THIS PLACE IS WONDERFUL!!! We had more than our fair share of bad issues with the first places we booked when we arrived to Hoi An and after trying 2 different places and being.... grossed out... we decided to pay a small amount more and go (on recommendation of a nice couple I chatted up on the street) to The Moon Homestay. Its about a 20 minute walk/10 min bike ride/5 min, 25-30k dong taxi ride to the River/old town. The place is immaculately clean, staff is friendly as you could ever ask for, they serve you complimentary breakfast with your choice of drink (we usually got the pho bo and iced coffee with milk) and have a very nice pool to cool off in which was a life saver on some of the hotter days. There are plenty of restaurants and little stores within walking distance. I really can't say enough nice things about this place... you guys... we almost cried we were so happy with everything. We first booked for 3 nights.. after the first night, we added 7 more nights to that... and then 1 more for good measure. They clean your room and make your bed and change the towels every day while you are out exploring. They have complimentary bikes to take into town, which we did a lot, and good recommendations for food and activities.... When booking really cheap places and continuously being disappointed, we kept saying "Well, you get what you pay for" ... with this place it really felt like you get way more. They are wonderful... just do it. The ONLY semi-inconvenient thing that happened was due to some other loud messy and rude guests but that was not the fault of the hostess and they handled them well. Literally nothing else was even close to being a negative.
Tailor ~ We shopped til we dropped in old town and even though they have a full tailor shop down stairs next to the kitchen we thought we were done ...but then we heard from the same couple that recommended the place to us (They stay a month at a time and are very familiar with the whole operation) that Moon was a tailor for 30 years so even though i had 2 suits already i opted in for another. I was looking for a nice greenish color linen suit and she had some good colors to choose from that I didn't see in old town so i chose one and a very snazzy inner lining and they did a bang up job I also added a nice pattered shirt to go with. I couldn't be happier. I also wanted a banana shirt because I'm a sucker for kitchy tourist stuff, but standing 6'7 and being kinda skinny, it was hard to find one that was long enough but not too wide... I looked liked I was swimming in all the pre made ones, so I had her custom make one. Perfect. Come for the hospitality, stay for the breakfast and pool... and leave with some custom made clothes! My girlfriend also had 2 collared shirts made and she loves them.
My wife and I stayed here in September 2017 and this time (April 2018) we have spent a month here. Between those two periods we have been lucky enough to travel much of the world as we start to enjoy our retirement. The Moon Home stay is still one of our most favourite places. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean, our room has a balcony so you can enjoy the beautiful weather while overlooking the sparkling pool that you can swim in all year round. It is a leisurely 15 minute walk to to the Hoi An town centre or you can use the available bikes to explore further afield. The best attribute of this home stay is Moon, staff and family. Together the team go out of their way to make you feel at home and make you feel special. They are happy for you to interact with them as much or little as you want. Breakfast is part of the package with a good variety and a nice way to start the day. All of this is at a fraction of the cost that we have paid in most other parts of the world. A truly memorable experience and one that we will repeat again in 2019.
I had a wonderful stay at “The Moon Homestay” Everyone was very friendly and helpful in finding great restaurants and places to go. The free bikes were perfect for getting around the small town and seeing the sights without having to walk long distances. They also happen to have an in-house tailor and I was able to get two great quality custom tailored dress shirts and a really nice suit for a great price and at a fraction of what most tailors in the old town were asking. If you are looking to get some clothing made while you are in town they are an awesome option!
We stayed at the Moon Homestay for 3 nights. We were travelling with our family and had the family room which consisted of a bedroom with twin beds for the kids and a room with a queen size bed for the adults. The grandparents got to stay in a large room with two queen size beds and a lovely balcony. The family room does not have a balcony. Breakfasts were generous. Very clean.
We had 9 wonderful nights at the Moon Homestay and could not have been happier with our choice of accommodation in Hoi An! The room was large, the bed comfortable and it was spotless as was the bathroom! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and everyone there greets you with a smile at all times! The breakfast was great and they catered to our taste for spicy food by adding chilli to our omelette....yum! They have complementary bikes and the pool is kept sparkling and was sooo refreshing! We will return to stay on our next trip to Hoi An and thoroughly recommend you consider it for your own visit!
Very friendly family run homestay run by Moon and her husband..The rooms are spacious and clean.The breakfast staff were very helpful and attentive. Phuc the manager dealt with our questions and requests very efficiently and professionally.It felt like home as you were welcome to use their kitchen and they would accomodate any special dietary requirement that was not listed on their breakfast menu.Great value for money and also a place where you would strike up long conversations with fellow guests-that is the friendly atmosphere that this homestay has.Would highly recommend especially for families- very kid friendly.Welcome change from the normal accomodation on offer.
We searched and searched for an affordable but nice place to stay while we spent two weeks in Hoi An and after reading great reviews I’m so glad we chose the Moon Homestay! Moon, her family, and her staff are so welcoming and helpful to give you advice on the area and provide a really comfortable, clean, welcoming stay. We stayed for two weeks and we were so sad to leave. They were so great with our kids, ages 2 & 4. They work extremely hard to make sure you have a good stay. Breakfast every morning was cooked to order and everything was excellent. Like I said, we stayed for two weeks and were able to find variety on their menu choices. We stayed in the family room and our room was cleaned every day which made it feel so nice every afternoon when we would return. They even had two bikes with baby seats and that’s how we got around town. It was about a 10 minute bike ride to An bang beach and 5-8 minute bike ride to old town. The Moon homestay is In a Great, quiet location. If we ever return to Hoi An there is no doubt we will definitely be coming back here ! We miss them already !
*If you go to the beach don’t stop at the main entrance. Go left a little ways, less Crowd and nice restaurants! I think it was called the beach house or something.. very very nice food and staff !
We are a family with 2 kids (13 & 9). We spend 7 nights at moon homestay and loved the place. Mrs Moon is so kind and generous. The rooms are big and comfortable. Great pool and great breakfast. Free bycecle. Easy to get to the old city. Dont think twice. Great homestay!!!
We stayed here 4 nights and really enjoyed the service and family. They were very helpful and were always checking to see if there was something they could do to help you. The rooms are big and very clean, they provide laundry service and have a nice little pool. The breakfast were standard and we enjoyed them. Provided free bottled water. Recommend the restaurant Tin Tin just down the way and it was very good. About 20 minute walk to market/lantern area so it was perfect for us.
This was our fourth stay at the Moon Homestay and we will be back for a fifth stay. Moon and her staff are very welcoming and will do as much as possible to make your stay comfortable and interesting. Biking to the beach was a highlight as well as the walks to Old Town. The daily breakfast offered many choices. Along with your choice, a plate of fruit was also served. Thank you, Moon and Phuc and the rest of the staff. Our 7 nights were wonderful.
We stayed in “the moon homestay” for 7 nights and we had a very good experience (family of 4) Moon, her family and the staff were so nice and friendly, they helped us in everything that we needed. Breakfast was excellent The rooms were big and clean All the facilities were great, including the pool... We also used moon’s tailoring capabilities - absolutely “all in one package ” The location is very good, not in the heart the old city (less crowded) and very close (2 min with bikes) to the rice fields, where we could escape from the hassle ..... To summarize we highly recommend
We loved Moon Homestay so much! Very friendly family run business. Rooms are very spacious and cleaned daily with fresh towels. We stayed here 6 days and was close to everything we needed. Water pressure in shower was great after a long day sight seeing. Loved having a balcony in our rooms. Moon in a wonderful seamstress too. A must stay homestay in Hoi An. We'll be back
The hospitality my family received at this charmingly classy homestay has been unmatched in our tour of Southeast Asia. The entire establishment has been newly renovated, delightfully decorated and comfortable. The breakfasts here are delicious. Haute Couture quality bespoke tailored clothes are offered here at incredibly reasonable prices ($120 for wool cashmere suit ). We easily spent as much if not more on clothes than our accommodations. For all we experienced here we would have gladly paid more for our stay and didn’t want to leave. I hope that we will be back very soon.
Don't look anywhere else - this is the place to stay!
A 10 mon walk from the bus drop point from Hue, this place is perfect for families and couples/solo travelers. Bright and clean rooms, balconies to each, great breakfasts and a pool. You can't beat the price for what you get. Super-cute fly and helpful staff - even driving 10k out of town to rescue us when our scooter broke down. Walk to the Old Town is about 20 mins, but only 5 mins by scooter. Easy to reach Marble Mountain and other sights, but still within city in quiet road. Plenty of local restaurants within a few paces of homestay. And there is a tailor onsite - if you want them to make up any clothes for you! Highly recommended.
We are a family with 3 children and we stayed there for more than 2 weeks- mainly because we felt like home away from home. The place is managed by a great family which takes care of all our needs with a lot of professionalism and politeness. The place is very clean and the facilities are new and welcoming. The owner let us use her kitchen with a lot of generosity. The best place we had in Vietnam and highly recommended.
We stayed at this Homestay for 2 nights only. We booked through agoda (for only 15 USD a night, while in booking its was way more expensive) and we payed directly through agoda. The Homestay is located out of the city centre and the busy places. You can go there in 5min using the FREE bicycles from the homestay. They are not the newest ones but drive smoothly and are safe. We used them to go to one of the islands around as well. The rooms are nice and the bed is comfy. The pool looks nice but we did not use it - it was raining most of the time. There is absolutely nothing to complain about.
Other than that there is a taylor in the homestay (Moon). And they are excellent and very fast. We ordered 15 pieces the first day with some extra wishes (evening) and tried everything on the next day in the evening. Suits and shirts etc were perfect while the dress needed some minor changes. Every little change was made until the morning of the next day, the day we left. They just packed everything up in a box and sent it home for us. You can choose airmail or seamail. (be aware that the price table they have is old and now it's more expensive to send something, which I already let them know).
Oh, and we got an extra breakfast because we had no time to go somewhere before our pick up. And they let us shower again after our checkout because we were sweaty after using the bikes again (after checking out).
