Reviewed 22 February 2012

Although a little out of the way from central Hoi An, Ancient House is an excellent choice for exploring the local area.

The rooms are of an excellent standard, large, airy and with a shuttered balcony overlooking the complex. Our room had a very comfortable four poster bed with mosquito net and was well stocked with clean towels, linen and presented to a very clean standard. The safe was confusing to in its instructions (we had to call reception to reset it)

The bathroom was large and well appointed aside with a large stone tub. A slight annoyance personally would be the fact that there wasn't a fixed shower head.

The breakfast was vast in its choice, with a chef on hand to cook omelettes or pho to order!

The staff are the real stars of this hotel, nothing less than polite, helpful and accommodating, even with my odd request to watch a Vietnamese football game 50km down the road!

Wouldn't hesitate to stay again when I'm next in Hoi An!

Room Tip: The rooms on the higher levels are only accessible by steps, but countered by good views over the to...

We stayed here for several days in a great room overlooking the pool. Quiet (excepot when the Karaoke bar nearby is playing loud music), not too far from the old town (1.5 km). The old town is easy to bike to using the free hotel bikes. Also a nice bike ride to the beach (3km).
Reception staff is very helpful. The Spa is good and although you can find cheaper ones dwontown, it';s nice to have a massage close to your room.

Only complaint is about the restaurant, too expensive and not very attentive staff. Better to eat down the road.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 305, probably the best one, no neighbours and overlooking the pool area.

Have stayed here twice, has that idellic vietnamess feel. big airey rooms with loads of marble and sutter windows give this hotel a time long ago. gourgeous gardens and lots of shady trees with paved paths make it feel like a litle paradise. There is also a bakery on sight that adds to the charm.helpful staff, and free push bikes and locks were great.

Room Tip: stay to the rear of the resort

Located off the busy street but within walking distance of the Old Town,we enjoyed our stay at Ancient House.  We didn't make use of the hotel amenities (except for the free buffet breakfast), but there is a pool table in the common area, and two computers with Internet (and some how they've managed to get facebook on them which was awesome, seeing as Facebook is completely restricted in Vietnam.  The rooms were large, but not as welcoming as I assumed they would be.  There is a big old TV, large bathroom with tub and separate shower and two sinks.  There are mosquito nets around the beds and I would recommend that you use them (my dad didn't and he got eaten alive).  Breakfast was great: a Pho station, omelette station, fresh fruit, cereal, cold cuts, cheeses, yogurts, a few hot food items and best of all: fresh baked breads (lovely little croissants, and better yet, fresh baked baguettes that I crave!).  The hotel staff was okay: I arrived in Hoi An by motor bike and when I got there I was given a few bad looks and that kind of set the mood for the next few days of my stay.  Other than that I cant fault Ancient House.

I can highly recommend this hotel. The staff were wonderful and hapy t help in any way. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I particularly liked the little flower and fruit gifts that were left each day in our room. We made good use of the free bicycles to ride the short distance to the beach and the old town. An easy walk to the restaurants and shops of Hoi An and if you don't feel like walking they provide a free shuttle bus as well. Good breakfasts. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: ASk for a garden view room near the pool.

This hotel was basic and functional, the staff were helpful and assisted when asked, trying their best to help out.

Within the rooms, it was very damp, this is due to the climate in Hoi An, however there was a drip onto one of the beds that proved to ‘dampen’ the experience of staying here with a drop of water falling about every 20 minutes onto the pillow. Were this drip in any other place in the room I doubt we would have noticed however it did affect the quality of sleep.

Overview nothing majorly wrong, just a little rough around the edges, you get what you pay for!

This is a hotel that has managed to keep some of its character. The rooms we had were large and comfortable, good bathrooms and well appointed. They had laptops with free wifi for checking mail, and a slight feel otherwise of colonial chic..
Great pool and nice garden, friendly and good value Spa. Bar has snooker table and a nice place to watch the street and life going by. Restaurant open sided with fans, food was fine but better in town, which is only a ten minute drive and the hotel runs a shuttle bus.

Room Tip: Get one overlooking the pool as the oputside rooms look over adjoining properties
