“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

This place is really close to old town and very convenient. Pool area and restaurant are great. Our room was a bit dark and gloomy, but we were out a lot so didn't matter. Afternoon market was really good, nice to taste all the local cuisine. Breakfasts here are pretty amazing, especially the banana pancakes (nom nom nom). Great place to stay in hoi an! Would come back again.

Riverside Resort exceeded all our expectations. From when our taxi dropped us off until we left the service was outstanding. On arrival the receptionist came out to meet us at the taxi. We were made very welcomed and shown to a lovely River view room. The room was large with a great comfortable bed, great bathroom with large towels. We had a problem opening the door onto our patio overlooking the river and a receptionist came immediately to help us, she couldnt open it and phoned maintenance who arrived within minutes, and showed us how to do it. Nothing was too much trouble for any-one at this resort. Breakfast was fabulous with so much to choose from, and Remo the F&B Manager made sure he spoke to every-one each morning and would go out of his way to assist. I think every Resort should have a "Remo".!
The resort is in a great position, away from the hustle and bustle but only 10 minutes walk into town or take the shuttle ferry which is a great way to travel into town. There were lots of services we didnt get to use as we only spent 4 days in Hoi An. We cant wait to come back to this resort. When we left all the officestaff came outside to wave us good buy, infact I became a little emotional. Miss Xuon just outside the resort has the coldest beer and drinks in Hoi An, and has a great washing service for $1.00 a Kg. she is a lovely lady with a lovely family.

Room Tip: The River view rooms are great, there has been some comments on the noise from the boats, but we did...

We had such a fantastic time at this resort. Beds were comfortable, towels were clean and good, good toilet paper and showers and air conditioning that work. I know that doesn't sound like much but getting the basics wrong can really stuff up a holiday. Then you get all the extras - boat trip into the town for free, good free breakfast buffet incl. banana pancakes (yum). They followed up with our tailor, arranged an early 4am car to the airport with 4 breakfast packs (really nice thought). Not to mention noting that it was my wife's birthday and turning up to the door with flowers. they have a local food cooking market everyday starting at 4 - the Quan Noodles were a favourite - again for free and really worth attending ...and you get serenaded by a gentlemen on guitar. Easy walk (7 minute) to the city which keeps you away from the bustle. Also easy walk to the Market Place restaurant which has great dishes at low cost - right outside the restaurant door is an evening market.
The staff are so helpful and Remo (from Switzerland) the food and beverages manager is great and you will always see him circulating so say hello.
The resort has an attached spa and the service and prices are fantastic - had a great massage and my wife and daughter enjoyed the pedicures and massages.
I highly recommend this resort - we have been to Hoi An a few times and this has been the best and we will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view room as it makes it so easy to pop from the room to the pool and also then you a...

This is a great hotel in the perfect location for Hoi An. Right on the busy river, it's only a 5 minute walk into the ancient city and the fabulous restaurants and markets that it offers. We had 2 deluxe rooms overlooking the river...kids in a triple right next door. The rooms are large, cool and clean and have a covered verandah with lounge chairs overlooking the river. The large pool was a bit warm but that was due to the hot weather. The smaller pool is in the shade a quite a bit cooler.Room service was quick and cheap and kept the kids happy. The breakfast spread was wide and varied with something for everyone...and very fresh. The breakfast room overlooks the river and generally had a lovely cool breeze in the mornings. The reception staff were very helpful and organised an airport transfer to Da Nang at a reasonable price when we were leaving. We used Mrs Van's laundry service across the road from the resort - $1/kg. It all came back lovely, clean and ironed...such a treat! As with other comments we found the noises of the river to add to the charm of the experience. They're not loud at all...even the teenagers didn't complain so it must have been ok!

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe rooms overlooking the river...they're worth the little bit extra.

We arrived at the Vinh Hung Riverside and were warmly greeted by the staff. We had 2rooms (as there were 7 of us) overlooking the river and they were well appointed and clean. The breakfast each morning was fantastic and the local foods provided in the afternoon to guests in the garden superb. The attitude of Ramon, the restaurant/beverage manager , and his staff was excellent and they made our entire family feel  welcome. 

Nothing was too much trouble for the front office staff and the peacefulness of the place allowed us a break from the hassle of the city centre (which is only a 5 min walk away). We noted some comments about boat noise, we were in rooms next to the river and found them unobtrusive. In fact they added to the charm as you sat outside. We would highly recommend staying at the Vinh Hung Riverside and are sure you will not be disappointed.

I would like to rate this hotel higher because I thoroughly enjoyed my 5 days here. But the last morning, I woke up sick with gastro, which I think was from either the pork wontons I ordered the evening before by the bar or from the layer of mould around the edge of the pool.

The bar needs to be stocked better, choosing from the cocktail list I had to eliminate half of them because they didn't have the alcohol.

The staff were very attentive, happy and helpful. The 4-5pm tasting market was fabulous and very filling, a couple of times I didn't eat dinner because I was still full!

This resort is good value for money. Walking distance to the ancient town and night market, cheap bikes for rent across the road for $2 a day and laundry for $1 per kilo. Lots of small 'shops' to buy soft drinks, alcohol and snacks.

When booking this property I was tossing up between this one and one of the resorts by the beach.... having gone down to the beach for a look I am quite happy to have chosen to stay in the town.

Stayed in basic room, more than adequate for our stay!
Clean and well equipped, exceeded our expectations.
Manager is very helpful and friendly, goes beyond his call of duty. In a beautiful part of Hoi An, next to the river with lots of beautiful outside space, yet only a 5 minute walk into town.
Would definitely recommend thus hotel!
