“Wonderfully relaxing”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

The recent reports from other reviewers are spot on. Our room faced the river and, at ground level and a large enough terrace, a pleasure to sit and relax. Just outside the door was the smaller of two pools. We were there for just 4 days, and it wasn't at all crowded in this time. Plenty of space, free and comfy sun loungers and a bar availbale no matter how few there were at the pool.

The walk to the old town is easy and only 5 minutes away. We took the free river ferry and within 15 minutes of asking there it was, spot on time for the pleasant ride to town. I'd recommend this trip too as it lands you in the market area, which is fascinating, and otherwise easy to miss.

The staff, as everywhere we went in Vietnam, were charming, and at all times helpful. Breakfast could be eaten inside or out on the terrace facing the river.We had lunch a couple of times there which was served in a timely manner and a good variety to choose from.

Room Tip: Ask for a river facing one- a little extra but worth it.

The Vinh Hung Riverside could not have been more perfect for our six night stay in Hoi An, everything about the hotel was top class, the location on the rivers edge and the proximity to the old town itself. Our room was a family room and was very spacious indeed, breakfast was excellent with a large choice of both local and international cusine, and the staff were out of this world each and everyone of them, they could not do enough for you, and as a really nice touch when we left we were each presented with a beautifully gift wrapped present, we were really sad to leave, and when we return to Hoi An we shall definitely stay at the Vinh Hung Riverside again. Top Tip pay the bit extra and book a room overlooking the river they look very nice

This excellent resort in Hoi An is situated within a 5 min walk, or a complimentary boat ride to the centre of the Old Town. We spent 9 nights in a very clean large room, overlooking the pool and beautiful grounds. All the staff and management were very friendly and so willing to serve you. The buffet breakfast was superb, and the free"sampling" of Vietnamese food served in the grounds between 4pm-5pm was very popular. It also gave the staff and management an opportunity to get to know their guests.We were blessed with a complimentary dinner because of our length of stay, and the resort also stored our luggage when we went away for 2 days; this was delivered to our room the moment we returned without even asking!! Amazing service. We would recommend this hotel to anyone, a very pleasant and relaxing stay and great value for money. Reliable Laundry service for $1 US a kilo was available opposite the hotel entrance with Mrs Thu or Mrs Van.

The Vinh Hung is simply a pleasure to stay at.

Sometimes in Hoi An, while walking around the markets, you can be forgiven at having moments of geo-shock, suddenly wondering if you're still in SE Asia, or have travelled suddenly to Mexico, tropical Queensland or any other seaside area.

Whilst the Vinh Hung does nothing to ease this sense of dislocation, it is what it is. A resort on the riverside where you can relax and do as little or as much as you please. Want to laze around the pool? No worries, it's open most just about 24 hours and the in-pool bar opens at 10am.

Want to explore beautiful Hoi An itself (which you'd be mad not to)? No worries, the hotel is situated a 5 minute walk from many comfortable and cheap restaurants serving both Western and Asian cuisines, the night markets, and pretty much everything else. The hotel can also organize bikes, scooters, and taxi transfers for you.

The rooms are wonderfully clean, and as I sit writing this pool-side at the hotel, a lovely hotel worker is scrubbing the inside edges of the pool to make sure everything is up to scratch.

Will you feel as if you've experienced Hoi An if you remain within the confines of the resort? Heavens no. Will you enjoy your stay? Certainly. Really though, do walk outside and experience everything this lovely area has to show you.

Very nice resort. Clean large room - we were in a pool side room. Nice beautiful grounds.Good breakfast with the usual buffet things. Good banana crepes. This is the first place in our 4 month trip in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam where you are not served coffee or tea at your table. No biggie but just interesting for how nice this resort is. Super friendly staff . Fresh fruit and water daily in the room . Pool area is very nice and comfy loungers , can order drinks from the pool bar. We didn't eat dinner at the restaurant since there are so many choices in town. We had room service late one night , my husband had the burger and it was not very good- tasteless . The hotel is in the perfect location - not too far from town , a short 5 min walk. On your way to the bridge is a street market every night . Good wifi in room.We asked for a late checkout and were able to do this for free. Check in/out were fast.

They had to retain our passport on checking in and that made us uncomfortable. Excellent location walking distance to the Old Town, we stayed in this two levels cluster units, the frogs were croaking the whole night. Some quest were checking out at 4.00am, heavy footsteps, staff were dragging luggage on common corridor, very noisy.There is an excellent place for good, clean and reasonably priced local food on the right before the Lantern Bridge called "Nha Hang Cho Pho", must not miss the chicken rice. Vihn Hung Resort breakfast spread is good and most unusual is their "Countryside market" from 4 to 5 pm where quest can get to sample Vietnamese street food. For those into clothes, as you exits the resorts main entrance, the shop on your left does pants and suits very well and the one diagonally to the right does dresses very well.

Room Tip: Get individual villa units avoid multi-levels cluster units,

Surely one of the best situated hotels in Hoi An with a 5 minute walk or a short boat ride to the centre of town. The first impression of the hotel and room seemed a little dated with our room appearing dark with the wooden flooring and ceiling and far from luxurious bathroom but this hotel has other redeeming qualities. Apart from the location it has a great swimming pool, a good buffet breakfast, helpful and cheerful staff with a very enthusiastic manager. Morning coffee sitting by the river is very pleasurable and the afternoon food tasting is unique and delicious. Walking back to the hotel late at night from the town is safe and the local residents are very friendly, speaking of local residents if you require laundry to be done, moped hire, the purchase of wine and beer and a local entrepreneur to cater for all your needs try Mrs Thu straight across the road from the hotel entrance, trust me she is reliable and lovely. We would recommend this hotel to anyone, a very comfortable stay and superb value for money
