“Would recopmmend it to everyone!”
Reviewed 27 May 2011

This is a wonderful hotel with very good service. Clean spacious rooms with fourposter beds and mosquito nets. Small swimmingpool in beautiful garden. Small restaurant, breakfast well-supplied. Distance to center Hoi An 4 km, but the hotel has a shuttlebus, and use of bicycles free. Distance to beach 3 km? In our room was a computer that did not work, after repair same complaint.

Tip 1: at the small restaurant at the riverside in Hoi An you can ask for a picturesque boattrip on the river.

Tip 2 : Yaly is a very good dressmaker.

We had two nights at the Ancient House and it was fine for that amount of time. It's a bit out of the way, but we knew that when we booked it. The water in the pool was so hot it was like soup, but that's likely the weather, not the hotel. Breakfast was pretty good but the bar closed really early. We had a few drinks out of the mini bar in the room instead. There was no price list in the room and these beers turned out to be the most expensive we had in all of Vietnam; we didn't realise till we were checking out. Had a couple of issues booking our car to the airport..nothing major though. We had to book everything and do the paperwork twice for some reason, then they still got the pick up time wrong by 20 minutes. But still, we made it to the airport in plenty of time.

My husband and I checked out this morning after a 3 night visit at the Ancient House. Originally, we had booked down the road at the Sunflower, but that's another review. Suffice it to say, we were so grateful that the Ancient House was right down the road!

The front desk staff are LOVELY, and they greet you with cold towels every time you enter the hotel (plus check in and check out drinks). The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated, CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN and very comfortable, with minifridge, A/C, wifi (better in some places than others). The breakfast is one of the best I've had in 2 months in SE Asia - great selection, fresh, egg station, great pastries, great service and no bugs in sight! And the snacks we had by the pool were also delicious. The grounds, including the Ancient House itself for which the hotel is named, are beautiful and charming. The pool is a little on the warm side but still refreshing and pretty to lounge at. And the free use of the private beach with lounge chair and umbrella is a great perk, plus the beach is gorgeous and the sea is cool and crystal clear. Bring 2 towels, though - 1 for the chair and 1 to use when you swim, as the chair cushions could stand to be renewed.

The free shuttles in and out of old town are well timed and handy, and even though it might seem farther, old town is actually only a 15-20 minute walk away.

This place does have a few problems but they are all pretty small: the pool umbrellas are filthy and need to be changed, the pool lounge cushions dry really slowly which is gross when you take a chair after another guest leaves, and the showers need improvement (we stayed in 2 rooms due to an A/C problem in the first and both had shower issues) - the shower heads are uncontrollable which can lead to wet floors, and they are hard to get in and out of.

It is a tad on the pricey side, but I think that might be Hoi An in general. Regardless, it's worth it. We would definitely come back here in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: They all seem to be wonderful!

Ancient House resort is a great place to stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are styled after the similarly named Ancient House monumental building in town.
They are well kept, and a lot of comfort is provided by the air-conditioning, four poster bed with mosquito net and laptop.
Breakfast is ample and of good quality.
The pool is a small oasis in the wonderfully quiet secluded and romantic garden, and the spa treatments are outstanding!

We were delighted to find this hotel just as well kept and comfortable as when we first visited in 2006. The rooms are spacious and clean, ours was upstairs with a balcony overlooking the pool so very private. The staff are warm and helpful. It is nice to return after a hot day in town to the beautiful gardens and pool. As well we took a taxi to the hotel's own beach bar on China Beach which was great. Although not in the centre of the town it is a short and cheap taxi ride or if you are organised use the hotel shuttle.

we really enjoyed ancient house. Our room was a family room and was HUGE. So incredibly big and comfortable. Staff were very helpful, the breakfasts amazing, and the kids loved the pool. Not quite as kid friendly around the pool, but not a problem. The location is excellent, and an easy walk or taxi into downtown old Hoi An, for our family.
