If any one is looking to have a bit of a splurge for their accommation in Hoi An, I can recommend The Long Life Riverside hotel, just over the river from the old town. Rooms are $35/night, which put clubs rooms @ the Sheraton to shame. The rooms are massive & absolutely stunning. The latex matresses & pillows are perfect. The bathtub (or spa)are nice. The pool is a great relief @ the end of a hot day. The staff are excellent & speak excellent English (the reception girls have a very cheeky sense of humour).
And of course they have satelite TV, so you can even watch the footy (and their mini bar has street prices if you need a few beers).
We came for 3 days & ended up staying 6, the old town, the beach and a great hotel...why would you want to be anywhere else?

Hi and thanks for your report on the Long Life Riverside. May I ask what type of room you had, and where you booked to get it for $35 per night?

That hotel might be very nice, but it's just so nice to be a little closer to the action - in the Ancient Town. If I want to see the river or the beach, I just rent a push bike and go!

Thanks Daawgon for your input. As with all decisions, there are pluses and minuses - just a matter of weighing everything up!!!
