I was here alone in the Ancient House River Resort for 4 nights in Jan 2012 and I enjoyed the peace tranquility of this resort plus the friendliness of the staff at the resort. Highly recommended for anyone who is coming to ask for the room on the 3rd floor which comes with the private balcony and the room is... More

The Ancient House River Resort is a bit in the middle of nowhere but the shuttle buses into town are just about regular enough for this not to be an issue. I couldn't fault the room which was clean, modern with a really good open plan bath and shower. One of the best we stayed in on a three week... More

After a busy year with multiple overseas business trips we were looking for a relaxing holiday without a lot of travelling around. Ancient House River Resort was the perfect place - quiet, relaxed and friendly. After 20 nights at this lovely hotel we were very sad to leave as all the staff had been so welcoming and made us feel... More

The management and staff of this hotel are really trying to make it a quality place, but they fall short in several areas. We were a large party (11) staying in January, 2012 and only upon arrival discovered that the showers for several of our members were outdoors. Now, had we been advised of this we would, perhaps, have been... More

We enjoyed our peaceful 3 night stay here after staying at noisier hotels in Danang and Dalat. The hotel is fairly new and the staff try to be very helpful. Of course, they are learning and will improve over time. We had a lovely dinner the first night and the breakfast buffet was very adequate afterward, with lots of choice.... More

Mixed feelings about Ancient River House. Overall positive, and think as far as resorts go it's definitely more personal than your average resort - the pool and lounge area is beautiful, river location scenic, the rooms are absolutely fantastic, spacious, with beautiful bathroom area - huge bath, open shower - very modern. Didn't get to make use of beach facility... More

We really liked this hotel-rooms are on ground floor or 1st floor overlooking the pool (which is lovely). The hotel backs onto the river and rooms are a decent size, with a shower outside and a big bathtub inside which i loved. The hotel is peaceful and relaxing and quite welcome after the touristy feel of Hoi An. I agree... More

We stayed at the Ancient House River Resort half way through our recent travels through Vietnam. It stood out as one of the best places we stayed - modern, clean and stylish. We loved the private outdoor shower just off our room and the fact that each room had a PC and free wireless meant that we could catch up... More

Our group of 15--teenagers, college kids and adults---loved this little hotel on the river in a small village. We were happy it was a 15 minute free shuttle ride from Hoi An (away from the temptation to do more shopping!) The rooms are clean and pretty and comfortable with lots of light and have free wifi. We liked the pool... More
