“Vinh Hung 1 Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

The service of the VH1 is outstanding with a very professional staff. The Ving Hung staff booked us a pick-up from DaNang Airport and a trip My Son and onto Hue. The hotel is 250 years old--not everything will work perfectly. The water pressure and old wooden tub in the upstair's room leaves something to be desired from a bathing standpoint but with patience all can be surmounted. We stayed in Rm 206 and our friends stayed in 208. They are the rooms used in the filming of the Quiet American. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the street below is wonderful. Breakfast if good with strong Vietnamese coffee. The staff even gave our friend a birthday cake--unsolicited from his passport info. Take a 1 hour trip to My Son--another a World Heritage site and home of the Cham people. Like Angkor Wat but different.

Room Tip: Rooms 206 and 208 can be noisy at night if there is a lot of street noise. Close the shutters from...

We stayed at the Vinh Hung 1 in a suite on the second floor for 3 nights. An ancient house, formerly a Chinese trader's residence in the Old City. The room itself was unique, furnished in the old style with creaky floors, etc. Dark. However, it was comfortable. The only drawback was that the hot water heater was above our room and it gurgled throughout the night. They turned it off at night for us for the 2nd and 3rd nights and all was well. It is a quiet hotel with a very polite staff. The breakfasts were nothing special and we decided to pick up our own supplies for breakfast after the 1st night. Warmer trays for food not kept at a proper temperature (which is always a concern), and sad looking vegetables and noodles. They ordered pho' in for us one day which arrived cold - and unappetizing. However, we do not stay in hotels for the breakfasts alone, and all in all it was a wonderful experience staying here. The hotel lobby also boasts some incredible furniture (antiques, no doubt) and many tourists were dropping in to the lobby to take pictures of the exquisite furnishings. They have a computer for use in the lobby as well. We loved it here. Highly recommended.

TIP: Avoid shopping in the Old City and paying inflated prices. Take a walk across the bridge out of the Old City, where you can purchase items for much less and pick up some freshly made baguette from the vendors.

Great location of this ancient house transformed into an hotel. Very kind and helpfull staff. The breakfast however is a bit below standards and also the bathroom of the bedroom. However the location and the atmosphere are soo good which make it a worth place to stay! Reccomended!

A very unique hotel located right in the centre of the Old Quarters. Nice and clean hotel with only 6 rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. All the major tourist spots are within walking distance. Would definately like to stay again during my next vist to Hoi An.

Room Tip: Both the rooms on the ground floor will be good. First floor front room will be a bit noisy.

Want to step back in time? Want to imagine Vietnam hundreds of years ago? Check in to Vinh Hung 1 and treat yourself to a stay unlike most any hotel experience. An Asia beauty, filled with the sights and sounds and beautiful fragrances of Vietnam. Simply beautiful, located in the heart of Hoi An, just a minute to the river and old Bridge. The staff treated me like a friend, arranged a bicycle for me when I decided to tour the countryside and returned it when I got back. Same with arranging transport for me whe I was checking out. What others have said about the showers is true, but trust me you won't care, and I promise it will be a highlight of your hotel experience in Vietnam.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the street (which is quiet at night) have more light. I was in the rear, my window...

Staying in the Vinh Hung 1 Hotel was a unique experience. There are just six rooms in what was originally a Chinese trader's home and the atmosphere remains authentic and utterly beautiful. The furnishings are lavish, the rooms comfortable and large and the caring staff round out what for me was unlike any stay I've had except 1, also in a Chinese house, in Penang.

I must point out that it may not be for everyone. If you require quiet and absolute privacy the traditional single wall partitions of the rooms do not provide it. And the marble bathrooms have bathtubs but only an inadequate hand held shower so if your morning requirements include a good shower it won't be here.

But these small sacrifices are well worth a stay in such a unique place. It was, for me, the absolute best part of my 5 days in Hoi An.

Room Tip: Some rooms have no outside window. Ask for one that does if light is important to you.
