“Unique 200 year hotel - deserves to be a 4 star hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We stayed one night at this hotel.The location couldn't be better and this hotel is like a museum.
Excellent welcome, we had book a suite and was very spacious.

The hotel was very calm as we were only 2 customers at the. Hotel. also it is possible to use the pool from the near by hotel Vinh Hung Resort.

We had a wonderful time here. The hotel is incredibly atmospheric, with wooden panels and screens and in a perfect location for wandering the streets of Hoi An. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts in the lobby, and the charming front desk manager was always cheerful and helpful. It was also very quiet and restful. Not highly modern but perfect for what we wanted.

We stayed three nights at the Vinh Hung 1, in room 206, which is one of the "special" museum-like rooms. The location could not be better, right on the "main drag" of the old town. I'd say that the sightseeing is right outside the door, but the fact is the hotel is a sightseer's site in itself! It's a wonderful cultural experience with its magnificent antiques, but if your idea of a fine hotel is a cushy chair in which to watch TV, go elsewhere. The room was a fantastic period piece, but there really wasn't anyplace comfortable to sit. The canopy bed with mosquito neeting was quite comfortable. Wooden shutters on the front window are effective in blocking most of the street noise, so that was not a problem. Air conditioner worked well in fighting the over 90 degree (F) heat, but, like most hotels in the region, you have to insert a key fob in a holder next to the door to turn the electricity on, so the aircon doesn't operate when you're not in the room. The bathroom had to be seen, with a bathtub made like a barrel; wooden staves and iron straps. Very good breakfast for a hotel with only six rooms, including eggs cooked to order.

The staff was uniformly friendly and helpful.

We're glad we stayed at the Vinh Hung 1; wouldn;t have missed it for anything. But we're glad not all our hotels on our trip were such cultural experiences!

Room Tip: Access to the second floor balcony overlooking the street is open to all guests, so that's a p...

Everything everyone has said before is true. This hotel is full of character, a delight, and centrally placed, which was great. We loved our large room, which was at the back, although it's true that rooms are dark (keeps them cool). Breakfast was taken at a table sitting looking out of the large window, watching the man over the road tend his birdcages. Lovely fruit, lovely breakfast, great welcome. And we went to the Vinh Hung resort to use the pool, which made for a relaxing change to sight-seeing. I can't imagine there being a better place to stay.

Room Tip: I can imagine the room near the water pump could be noisy - it didn't trouble us in our room.

This hotel is absolutely stunning! There were many times when I was sitting on the balcony when other tourists would walk by and take pictures of the hotel. We stayed in one of the big rooms at the front of the hotel, overlooking the street - it was very spacious and full of gorgeous period furniture. The service was fantastic, but I think that's just the way in Vietnam! The only possible negatives are that the room is quite dark and noisy (which is cool if you're looking for a proper authentic experience), and the shower is a title awkward but completely manageable.

We enjoyed wonderful hospitality and a beautiful room here in January. It's in the heart of historic Hoi An and central to everything. The staff was welcoming and warm with helpful suggestions and lots of smiles. The decor is authentic and beautiful with artwork and antiques that deserve a bit of time to admire. When back in Hoi An we'll always consider this home!

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...
