Where to stay in Hoi An

While Hoi An offers a good selection of sleeping options in all price categories, only a few of them lie in the old town, probably the city's most popular tourist area. To stay near this historic neighborhood, look for hotels in the surrounding streets, especially Ba Trieu and Hai Ba Trung. If you can, look for rooms in the evening, when many budget hotels try to fill up by offering deep discounts. For the best choices and bargains, reserve as early as possible.

  • I have to admit initially I was thrown off by the consultation fee and that the lady wouldn't let my girlfriend come in because she doesn't like a crowded shop. And I was intending on leaving without buying anything. However after paying and listening to her they were very knowledgeable and I got three suits. They accommodated my flight which was the next afternoon and I was there for a fitting which felt great and the suits of the best quality. Also for the backpackers out there they arrange delivery to wherever you want in the world. For me 3 Custom suits , 3 custom shirts and delivery to Canada - $500 USD ALL In. The customer service was okay at points but the quality and attention to detail and overall service was well worth it
  • I went straight to this place once I arrived in Hoi An after I stumbled upon some good reviews. I had the intention of ordering a suit, shoes, and a couple of shirts. The first she did was yell at me and my girlfriend about wearing shoes, so we quickly took them off and apologized. I told her it took me an hour to find her store and I was glad to finally find it. All of a sudden she got cocky and rude. She said since I was so eager to see her I should pay money for consultation, which she'll deduct from the price of the suit if I get one. We thought she's joking, but she refused to talk any more unless I paid her. It wasn't much money but I was really shocked and have never encountered this anywhere else in Vietnam, or the dozen countries I've traveled to. My grandfather, father, and mother are all professional tailors, and none of them ask money upfront. I went her because I thought her work is good and she's a professional, and coming from a family of tailors I was willing to pay top dollar for quality work. Once I expressed my disbelief in her asking for money just to talk, she started getting very rude and yelled at us to leave if we don't want to pay. I kept trying to tell her that I had a complete intention of ordering a suit and money other things, but she seemed to only care about getting a measly few dollars from a serious customer. I then realized this woman is anything but professional and having a handful of foreigners visit her and pay her double what she's used to, has made her cocky and very rude. Avoid her store at all costs because she will treat you badly and as I read the prices on the wall and read the other reviews, I realized she also charges much more than the hundreds of other tailors in the area. Just like all the tailor shops you see there, they outsource their orders to other ladies working in small little tailor shops elsewhere. So don't waste your time here and find the back alleys where they work, or do as I did and go to a recognized famous establishment and pay top dollar, but instead you're treated like a million bucks too. I've worked at my parents' tailoring shop myself and one thing my father always taught me was to treat customers like royalty, even when you did nothing wrong they claim you screw up, fix it and don't ask for more money. This creates repeat customers and a happy professional client. This lady clearly was never taught that. I was there last summer and every now and then I still think about how rudely I was treated and what a scam-artist she was. I will certainly never forget Miss Forgot Me Not.
  • Absolutely amazing. I get why some people are immediately scared off at first by the consultation view and that you can't just look, ask for prices and then say "no thanks". If you however intend to get stuff made -and I guess you do cause that's why you go to a tailor- the ladies of Miss Forget Me Not are some of the sweetest, best and most professional tailors you will find in Hoi An. They put a lot of effort into making everything to perfection and to your absolute liking. I got in a bike accident and the ladies were even so sweet to bring me back to my hostel on the back of their bike. Another excellent thing is the fact that they do not work together with any hotels or other agencies so the prices are really really good. I will definitely come back and honestly can't think of anything that I did not like about this tailor.
  • They made a tweed jacket in less than 12 hours! Awesome place. Jacket seems pretty good still.
  • I was shooed away! At arrival I was told to take my shoes off, so obviously they weren't closed. Two grownups and a child were sort of hanging around in and out of the shop space snacking on chicken sticks. No customers were present. As I was just getting started looking at the fabrics on display, I was asked by one woman if she could help me. I said no thank you, I'm just looking. Then she responded that they were busy and that there could be no looking in their shop, and motioned for me to leave. So I did. Shocked. There must be more people than me that would want to look if they like any of the fabrics before they decide to order some tailored clothes, or? Maybe I should change my standard shop response "No thank you, I'm just looking" to "Maybe I will do a lot of business with you, but could you please give me a a moment to look around on my own first"? Anyhow, I've never been shooed out of a shop like this before, and I will certainly never return. You could say that the shooing worked very well.
