My friend and I spent 4 nights in this lovely spot by the river. The room was very spacious and aesthetically pleasing with white walls and decor and high ceilings. The staff could not have been more gracious or helpful. Food and Beverage Manager Nguyen Phuoc Minh provided us with an exquisite multi-course meal made in the local style. We... More

It takes a bit of getting to down a few goat tracks but its worth the trip. Quite a new hotel - we rated this our favourite hotel during our stay in Vietnam. As with all hotels the staff were friendly, polite and helpful. We arrived late (around 9.30pm) due to a 4 hour flight delay. They held the restaurant... More

Ancient house river was a modern boutique style resort about 5km from the town. We chose this place based on reviews and the relatively cheap price for a resort. The staff were really nice and helpful, easy to deal with. The rooms were really modern and spacious, very clean. The pool area was nice to relax at. Also really good... More

Initially I was a little hesitant given it is 4km from the market centre. Those initial feelings quickly diminished once I had seen the room, the view and the friendly service from the hotel staff. Situated near the fishing village, the river provides an excellent backdrop and a genuine Vietnam experience. This hotel only opened in Sep 2010. Beautiful and... More

This resort has been recently opened, only a couple of months ago. Therefore everything is still clean and working. It's a small resort, perfectly fit for honeymoon couples, or families with young children, or people that just want to have a break from the busy cities they just visited or have been working in. It's a quiet and relaxed place... More

Having stayed for 5 days in this quiet hamlet halfway between Hoi An & the beach it was an intersting experience. It was very tranquil and apart from the rooster and the occasional dogfight at night the settings were very "local". The staff were friendly & polite and when communication understood they could not do enough. The rooms were generously... More

The relatively isolated location of Ancient House River Resort is actually an advantage. The countryside is gorgeous, making the bicycle/motorbike rides into town or to the beach unmatched for scenery. The staff, from reception to waitresses to cleaning ladies to maintenance men, are all friendly and accommodating. Although local food is abundant and cheap, it was nice to spend a... More

This is one of the newest additions to the many hotels in Hoi An. But be aware it is not in the center and you can not walk to the center, however there is a free shuttle service running every two hours (you could also go by boat for 2 dollars, which is a great option).
