Beautiful hotel out of townPosted Sep 12, 2014
Absolutley loved this place for value and pleasure. Quiet location on the river, 10 minutes by car out of town. The rooms were a lovely combination of traditionl decor with modern comforts. The swimming pool was lovely. Staff were very kind and helpful, and a courtesy bus in and out of central Hoi An was provided several times per day. Breakfast was served in the riverfont restuarant with a gorgouse view.

A peaceful escapePosted May 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
This is a lovely hotel - set around a lush pool area, the rooms are elegant, spacious and comfortable. The bathroom is open (could be an issue if you're just staying with a friend!) although there is a curtain you could pull across for privacy. The staff are helpful and attentive. There is a regular shuttle into town or you can cycle using the free bicycles. There is also a shuttle to the beach. It's about 3-4 km from either. It's a lovely bike ride - through the rice fields - beautiful. The gym at the hotel isn't well equipped and the breakfast was a little disappointing; no variation for the 5 days we stayed and little choice.

A very peaceful, beautiful placePosted May 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
An excellent hotel, tucked away by the river. It's about 4km from hoi an town but the hotel has a regular shuttle or you can ride in on the free bicycles. The staff are incredibly helpful and courteous. The rooms are spacious and very tastefully decorated with lots of room. The bathroom was great. The hotel's gym however is not really a gym. The breakfast at the hotel was a little disappointing and didn't vary at all for the 5 days I stayed here. The daily fresh towels being delivered in person along with a story about Vietnamese culture was a lovely touch.

A great effort by a great staffPosted Oct 5, 2013
Pros: The staff''s service, the rooms are spacious and have a lovely charm and style. It's pool is lovely and the Lobby has a pool table for the night owl.
Cons: A guest toilet closer to the pool. There is one in the Lobby, but one closer tot he pool would be nice.
Location: Location was rural. Lovely immersion in the old and the new, ancient complimenting the modern. The Cau Dau beach is nearby, the town is close, 10mins
Very good, wold return, AAA+ for the friendliness and attentiveness. The breakfast needs a little work, but beside that, every part of it is worth it. People complain about the distance it is from town, but this adds to the charm, they have a free regular shuttle and they offer free bicycles. My daughter and son (12 and 9) who NEVER ride anywhere, easily negotiated the ride to the town and through to the towns edge. Love Vietnam. Loved Hoi An.

Beautiful hotel on river, far from townPosted Apr 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel was a very mixed bag. It was on a scenic river, had a very pretty pool and yard, beautifully designed rooms. The breakfast buffet was very good and the restaurant in general had good food and reasonable prices. BUT it was very far from town and beach, not really walkable to anywhere. And the staff seemed not to know English well. When we arrived we were told the river view suite for which we had pre paid, was not available. When I insisted, a room was magically available. Every time we spoke to the front desk there was an attempt to upsell, or to direct us to a particular store, taxi company. A clerk even tried to get us not to go to a beach that had been recommended because he wanted us to go to a restaurant on another beach.

A beautiful hotel, didn't want to leave!Posted Mar 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel is lovely - our room was huge with a comfy bed and spacious bathtub. Great selection at breakfast - loads of fresh fruit, omelettes made to order and freshly baked pastries. A bit out of the way, but actually we preferred not being in middle of Hoi An as it's quite touristy. The hotel give you push bikes and it took about 15mins to cycle into the centre, and we also hired a motorbike one day. A quiet and luxurious haven!

Serene location, feel part of a Vietnamese villagePosted Mar 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
we truly enjoyed our stay and are planning on coming back. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We loved the fact that it was a few minutes away from the craziness of downtown Hoi An yet close enough to bike or take a 4 dollar cab ride into town. The resort is beautifully set up, with loads of flowers and butterflies everywhere. Also, just a few miles away from Cua Dai Beach.

To recommend or not to recommend?? not surePosted Jan 3, 2013
Pros: The shuttle service
Location: Location was ok but a good 4km out of town so not ideal in bad weather but a good shuttle service to and from town. Driver was great
Dont want to too unfair as this place was the only non resorty type place we stayed at in Vietnam. damp miserable weather didnt help as first impression was a little disappointing but it is only 3star.. cleanliness was good and rooms were good altho we booked the 'best' room and it was just a lot of space not used well so a waste of the extra cost althho not too pricey. a normal room would probably be ok. pool is nice in good weather. restaurant just functional, food mediocre and service is difficult.. staff mostly cant speak or understand English so v difficult to communicate esp if you need to knw details of the food! not many veggie options. I understnd the language barrier but a waiter should at least know the basics and what the food on the menu is. They also advertise another restaurant above reception which was non existent and the bar was never open although it wasnt appealing at all really... the seating is also all very uncomfortable so nowhere to really chill if stuck indoors due to rain apart from the bed! This place is also 4km out of town which in good weather would be ok to cycle etc and they do have a good shuttle service to and from town. I dont know whether to recommend or not... as i dont have another similar one in the area to compare to... but generally ok. Most bizarre thing is that the comments in the visitor's book are all excellent so not sure if i'm just really fussy... its personal i guess.
holiday in VietnamPosted Aug 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
tours through hotel just too expensive. room was spotless and the reception girls are wonderful very pleasant to deal with and looked after us the food for dinner and lunch options was very limited and not the quality you would expect. Housemaids excellent and friendly, Driver excellent. Remote location but ok if you like to get away or like going by bike to beach or shopping

Quiet OasisPosted May 7, 2012
Pros: Free use of Laptop in the room.
Location: A distance out of town but manageable
This is a very quiet and comfortable hotel. The cleanliness and upkeep of the hotel was first class and i have stayed in better rated hotels that are inferior to this hotel. Ancient House River is a 20 minute bike ride from town and about 15 minutes to the coast beaches and if you are not that energetic the free bus shuttle was very handy. I am amazed that people would pick fault with this hotel. The Manager, Mihn went out of his way to make all welcome and ensure that my stay was enjoyable.
