We did not enjoy our stay at Jolie's but ours appears to be an isolated case and just a series of unfortunate events on a busy Saturday night.
Communication was a bit challenging with the front desk person (Vicky) but we managed. Appearing overwhelmed and exhausted, Vicky said she made the mistake of giving our family room to someone else and asked us to wait in a double room next to the front desk until the other party came back. I am not sure if the double room was clean or not because I found a couple of men's underwear in the bathroom :( and the room had luggages in it (which Vicky took).
We rested a bit in the room and went to dinner. Come 9:30 pm, we came back and she said the other party was not in yet. No proposals/alternatives were given, so tired from an all-day travel , I proposed that they just put an extra bed / mattress in the double room where we rested earlier. Vicky put an old , dirty looking foam bed- but we were too tired to ask for alternatives.
After all this at about 10 pm, Vicky asked for my passport for identification ( which is ok perhaps for check-in but what timing) and asked to keep it until morning when I check out. I do not know why, but I of course, refused.
Thank you for your review and I am sorry that we got things wrong when you stayed. All I can do is apologise, what you describe is really not good enough and not the kind of experience that we want people to have. I will speak to Vicky myself to try to find out where things went so badly wrong and what we can do to make sure this never happens again. I am very sorry and so disappointed that your stay in our homestay was not so good this time due to the overbooking. We never want our guests to feel like this.
Thank you again for your useful comments which we will use to try to improve surely in the future.
Enjoy your onward trip and see you the next time again at Jolie Villa Hoi An Homestay with the better feelings.
The place matches the past reviews and pictures. We felt welcome and safe here. Jolie runs this place similar to a hotel, so it was nice to have the same amenities and services as a hotel while still getting a homestay experience. We didn't end up visiting her hotel to check out the pool, but we made good use of the bikes. We biked all over ancient town and even to the beach. This location is also close to the bus station, which we found out when we caught one to visit the Marble Mountains. Breakfast with fresh fruit each morning was appreciated.
We had a wonderful stay at Jolie's! Tiny was very sweet and helpful. She tried her very best to answer all our questions with her brightest smile. She made us feel very welcomed! We got free bikes from Jolie's so that we could explore Hoi An easily. It's about 10-15mins ride from Jolie's to the ancient town. It locates at a quiet area that it allows us to have great sleep every night. The rooms are clean and spacious. We also enjoyed the Vietnamese breakfast a lot. I would totally recommend Jolie's!
Our stay for only just one night in the Julie villa was very pleasant. It's located a little outside downtown but with free bikes it's reached within minutes. Rooms were clean and 'tiny' (the girl at the front desk) was very customer oriented and helped wherever she could. The pool is located at a hotel near by and clean. We arrived early in the morning and even got a free breakfast!!! I would definitely recommend this homestay for other backpackers visiting Hoi An.
The hosts of Jolie Villa were awesome! My party arrived at 11 pm and with 2 additional people and the hosts were very kind and accommodating. They put us in a family room and didn't charge extra. They asked us if we were hungry when we got in, but since it was so late, we didn't want to bother them and opted for 2 bowls and chopsticks instead since we had leftovers from the road. They had complimentary breakfast which consist of a drink, your selection of breakfast from their menu, and a plate of seasonal fruits. The rooms were very clean and if you needed laundry done (washed by hand), they offer that service for a fee. They even had bikes for us to borrow! As a parting gift, they gave us postcards with places of interests in Hoi An. I would definitely stay with them again if I come back.
It is our great pleasure to receive the positive feedback about your stay at Jolie Villa Hoi An Homestay. We strive to offer the best services and facilities to all our guests to make every stay a pleasant and memorable one. As a result, all your constructive feedback will motivate and help us so much on our way to be known as the best place to stay in Hoi An, Vietnam. Hope that we will meet you again at a very near time in the future, and serving you as well right at the Kiman Hoi An Hotel & Spa- our family run hotel.
Jolie Villa Hoi An Homestay
14 Luu Trong Lu street, Hoi An city, Quang Nam province
My family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children, ages 7&9) stayed here and it was truly fantastic. Breakfast is included and is delicious- Tiny was a terrific host and even whipped up banana chocolate pancakes for my daughters who were craving western food after weeks on the road.
We had two rooms which were charming and they have free bikes you can use to roam the town. You aren't in the midst of the insanity that is the ancient quarter and frankly, that's pretty nice! You're close enough to it which is great. Tiny's restaurant recommendations were fantastic and she was super helpful- arranging laundry, taxis and a ride to danang airport after I screwed up our train tickets ;). We really wish we could've stayed longer!!
We had a great time at Jolie's Homestay. Jolie and her family were very warm and welcoming. They went out of their way to help us out and ensured that we had a pleasant experience in Hoi An. The family room was very clean and spacious with a nice en suite bathroom. An excellent breakfast was provided each day and bikes were available to us free of charge. The homestay is conveniently located between the beautiful An Bang beach (a short cycle ride away) and the town centre. Jolie and her family provided us with a map on arrival with several recommendations, including a good tailor. Jolie was kind enough to offer us a complementary private cooking class at her hotel (Kiman Hotel, just a short walk from the homestay). We just had to pay a small amount for the ingredients. It was a fun experience and the food was very tasty! Thank you to Jolie and her family for such a wonderful experience in Hoi An. We would most definitely recommend this homestay for anyone who is planning a visit to beautiful Hoi An.
