“Thank you for the true hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

We have just returned home from a 7 night stay in Hoi An and the lingering memory is one of the joyful smiles of all the staff and the effortless way in which they attended to us. The food was delightful as were the surroundings. Whilst this is not a five star accommodation, it feels like home as we return there each time we visit Hoi An.

Love the people, love the service. What more do you want? Stayed here 2 yrs in a row. Would have been 3 but they were booked out. Very willing to accommodate your needs no matter what.
Tours also offered from the location and you get the best of the beach next door, river behind the hotel and large pool to bask in.

This is my 4th visit to Hoi An and my 4th visit to this hotel, so why do I keep coming back?
It is not one thing but many, the friendly staff who can't do enough for you, the quiet location less than a minute walk from the beach, the great view of the river, clean spacious rooms with very comfortable beds, excellent food - they are very accommodating with our special dietary requirements, very child friendly, great service and price. The list could go on and on.
Very highly recommended.

This is my forth trip to Hoi An and every year i have stayed at River Beach. Great location next to the river and only 2 minutes walk from the beach. Short taxi ride to town or take the complimentary shuttle bus.
The staff are friendly and more than helpful. They will even cater to my special dietary requirements and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast is first class and very generous.
Good sized rooms kept clean and tidy.
Excellent pool and a brilliant place to stay with kids.
Tour desk available and very helpful.
I love coming here and so do my family its like home away from home.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the road unless you are an early riser

This hotel is situated very close to the beach and a river. The view from the hotel room was very nice with the river and small fishing boats to watch while sitting on the balcony. However you could be disturbed early in the morning when the fishermen are starting their daily activities. The room was rather large. The cleaning of the room was not the best. The personnel was very service minded. The breakfast was very good including "personal" omelettes. It was easy to go to Hoi An city centre by free shuttle bus or cheap taxi. I would recommend this hotel for a nice stay in Hoi An.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Hassle-free from the moment we booked. We arrived early (10am) and were told the room wouldn't be ready until noon. We sat on the riverside for no more than 30mins and were told our room was ready which was a pleasant surprise & greatly appreciated. Our room was on the 3rd floor with a river view. The room was clean and had a rustic feel, complete with a balcony. The bed was comfortable and we had a good night's sleep until about 6am each morning because then we could hear construction-like noise, people in the hallway, etc. We could also hear our neighbours very clearly. Breakfast was standard, with both western and Vietnamese style dishes. We enjoyed the omelettes, pastries, pancakes and Pho. It is not necessary to choose the breakfast option with your hotel room as the city is 5km away and is very accessible by shuttle, bicycle or taxi and has many cafes to eat at. We took advantage of the free shuttle service to and from the city, as well as taxis if the shuttle schedule didn't coincide with our plans. We also rented bicycles (for free) from the hotel and rode the 5km into the city which I would highly recommend doing at least once. We also used the private car service to and from the airport at a cost of 25USD per trip and the drivers were either on time or early for pick-up. We did not use the pool, but it looked clean and inviting. The beach is less than a minute walk from the hotel, and there is a very nice restaurant next door that we ate lunch at (can't remember the name). The staff were all very friendly and quite helpful. We would definitely stay here again and have recommended this hotel to friends!

Room Tip: Choose a room on a high floor with a river view (there is an elevator).
