Long Life Riverside Hotel
Ranked #145 of 162 Hotels in Hoi An
Reviewed 10 April 2010

We stayed at the Long Life Riverside for two nights. We had a pool view room in the middle of the hotel and I had the best sleep I had had in Vietnam for two weeks, It was completely quiet!
The hotel is very new and the rooms are clean and very stylish. The bathroom issue mentioned by a previous reviewer has now bee addressed and while there is no door there is a large curtain that can be drawn for privacy.
The staff were extremely friendly and eager to please, Breakfast was served overlooking the river and was of excellent variety and quality. The location on a small island over the bridge from the Old Town was excellent as the views across to the Old Town at night were spectacular and walking was easy and relatively free of traffic.
We were charged $US35 a night for our room and for that price could not imagine any hotel in Hoi An offering more. The free internet in the room was fantastic. Stay there if you get the chance,

We stayed in the Long Life Riverside hotel in March 2010 and were extremely satisfied with the quality of the hotel rooms and service provided by all staff. The rooms were well priced, modern and spacious with all the ammenities that make your stay even more comfortable. The buffet b'fast provided a good selection of both western and asian food and the view out over the river is beautiful. Staff were very attentive and went that extra mile to make you feel at home - Vietnamese hospitality at its best! Highly recommend the Long Life Riverside hotel

Wow, what a terrific experience staying at the Long Life Riverside Hotel Hoi An's newest Hotel. My wife & I had the pleasure of being this hotel's first ever guests, not something that many people would ever get to experience. The Hotel is situated overlooking the river and the old town. The staff at the Long Life Riverside were amazing with Phi, Nhut, Nguyet, Thuy and the owner Thanh very warm and friendly. The Hotel and the rooms were the best we experienced in the whole of Vietnam and Thailand. The rooms were luxurious, with a very comfortable king sized bed, large spa bath with overhead shower, inroom computer access and flat screen tv. The breakfast was excellent with our daily omlettes cooked to perfection. Finally the Hotel is a very ease 5 minute walk over the bridge into the old town, very close to all the retail shopping your heart can desire, along with some of Vietnam's fines restaraunts. We recommend the Long Life Riverside to any visitors to Hoi An, you wont be disappointed. We hope to get to use the awesome pool and bar on our next visit.

This is the sister hotel to Long Life and had recently just opened its doors more than a month ago. It is located on Hoi An island and has 2 buildings separated by a small lap pool, however, when I was there in mid-March, one of the buildings was still under renovation and was not ready to receive guests yet. So you can imagine that there will be some teething problems with a brand new hotel which is not fully operational yet.

The reservation process was smooth and pick up from the airport prompt. However, we encountered a slight hiccup when we arrived at the hotel. We had originally booked a single room and a double room, but when we arrived at the hotel, we were told that there was a plumbing issue with the single room and the hotel had arranged for all 3 of us (a male friend, my husband and I) to stay in a triple room. We were shown the room and everything looked fine. We didn’t mind to stay together just for one night until we realized that there was no door for the bathroom and toilet area! So for those of you thinking of booking a triple room, be warned! This type of configuration is probably good only for families with young children. Naturally, it would be very inconvenient for 3 adults to share this room but the hotel claimed they were full and had no more rooms left. They eventually agreed to look for an alternative accommodation for our friend near to our hotel for the first night.

My husband and I decided to stay on in the same room, although we had booked a room with river view, because we realized that the rooms with river view are closer to the street and could be noisy. For the price we paid (US$45/night), the hotel does have a lot going for it, eg. Spacious room, free-standing Jacuzzi tub big enough to fit 2, rain shower, PC and free wifi in room, DVD player, decent buffett breakfast, free use of bicycles…but there are also other small details which can be improved. For example, housekeeping could be better trained to replace all towels and toiletries when used, to have cushions on the wooden sofa chairs in the rooms, putting in a toilet roll holder, replenishing food for the buffett breakfast….As I said, this hotel is new, so if they can put in effort to standardize their SOP and better train their staff, I’m sure they will do well. The staff are friendly and helpful and would try to accommodate most of your requests.

Location of the hotel is great. It is located on the small Hoi An island just 2 mins walk from the old town. There are lots of F&B choices along the same stretch and the food is generally good whichever restaurant you go to. A typical Vietnamese meal with drinks will probably set you back US$2-5.

Despite the initial hiccups, I would still recommend this place if you’re going to Hoi An in a few months’ time, hopefully they would have the whole place up and running smoothly for guests to enjoy.

We were very fortunate to stay at this newly opened sister Hotel perfectly located on the small island across the decorative bridge from the old town center. Rooms are smartly decorated in japanese-style wood. Each room is a little different, and 'upgraded' to the largest Double Room, with sunken double-size whirlpool tub/shower, living room, and king-size bed. Very nice - especially for the price. The Staff aimed to please. Only criticism, it was so new that they are still getting the kinks out. Once they are fully operational, it will be a really first-class hotel. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

My family and I stayed a Long Life Riverside Hotel (obs: be aware there are older sister hotel in Hoi An, with the name Long Life Hotel) for 7 days. The Long Life Riverside Hotel is brand new and have a nice and rather big pool in the courtyard. Rooms are big with nice bathrooms, TV and computer with free internet access. Breakfast is excellent, which includes different kinds of bread, fresh fruit, omelets and good banana pancakes. The staff are very helpful. They even helped us too organize a visit to the local school, so our kids could see, what it is like to go to school in Vietnam.
The hotel is located near the river opposite the old town. Good and quite location two minutes walk from the old town. There are free bicycles. We used the bicycles a lot because it made it much easier for us to get around, with the kids on the bag of the bicycle.
