Whilst the property was beautifully fitted out, with absolutely to die for rooms we were not sure of the pushy reception we received especially upon saying no to all the extra, expensive services they offered us. Also on the first two mornings the continental breakfast was far from continental. Most of the plates were empty and had to be asked... More

We stayed here after glowing reviews in Lonely Planet but were not wrapped... It did not help that it rained for our entire stay but this hotel will quickly look like it's name states, 'Ancient". Mould growing on walls (inside and out) doors and windows not closing and my biggest bug putting nightgowns back in the cabinet without washing. We... More

We just check out and were very happy with our stay there. The rooms are very nice, very clean, and comfortable and with the right amenities – we like having the laptop in the room. We had a lovely view from our balcony and enjoyed the lovely breeze from the river. The rooms have open air showers (which we liked)... More

This Resort has a lovely swimming pool set in beautiful tropical gardens on the bank of the river, and I enjoyed a very pleasant. peacful stay. The room was large and little touches of luxury everywhere. (Your own laptop included.) Wonderful breakfast included, and every taste catered for. The only downside was the climb up the steps from the poolside... More

We recently stayed for 3 nights at the Ancient House River Resort. The rooms were comfortable and the staff was very nice. The river view and the grounds were nice. The stairs were a little annoying but the hotel layout was not conducive for an elevator. The distance from HoiAn was really not a problem. The only downside was we... More

We recently stayed at the Ancient House River Resort for 3 nights in September. From the moment we arrived we were met with friendly faces and the staff exceptional.

The location of this resort is amazing, as it is perfectly located in the midst of a local village, allowing one to get a feel for the local culture. The river is absolutely amazing also, and one can see and experience the local fishermen / women as they go about their chores at night. The superior river room was amazing... More

We stayed at the Ancient House River Resort for 3 nights in October 2011. As other travellers have stated, this hotel is about a 15min ride out of Hoi An. We actually thought this was a benefit as the location was very peaceful and actually nearer to the beach. After spending a few nights in Ho Chi Minh City, the... More

As stated is a lillte out of town. So quiet & peaceful. Has free shuttle bus- too easy. Great rooms. Fantastic food. Great friendly staff & loved the river side / pool BBQ area. Super friendly & just the little touches that make you feel so welcome. Free laptop in room . Value for money for sure.

As others have emphasised it is a bit out of town, but not a real problem if you arrange your town visits around the free shuttle bus times. The resort itself is of 4 star quality. It is new and the rooms are fresh and bright, although not overly spacious. The pool area is okay. The breakfast is very good,... More
