We stayed here for three nights. The hotel is a little out of the main town but not far, we walked in and out on both the days we were there, quite an interesting walk past shops, restaurants etc. We requested a taxi from the hotel which worked well, my only criticism is that the taxi driver insisted on stopping at a marble shop and also at his sister's shop in Hoi An. That is something the hotel should try and stop.

Our room was good. Breakfast was a help yourself affair with good choice. We loved Hoi An and hope we can visit the town again and, if we do, we would stay again at this hotel.

The only down side for me was the swimming pool which was fine if you just want to sit around the pool but if you want to swim, it wasn't very big and was a circular swimming pool.

Located about 20 minutes leisurely walk from the centre of the old town, this hotel is like a little oasis. The rooms are mainly located around the garden area, with ancient house style doors that fully open, so you can be in your room and the garden at the same time. Rooms are well equipped and comfortable, though avoid inspecting the electrics too closely if you are paranoid. Reasonably well insulated from vehicle horns, though you do get random music from neighbouring establishments, though not late at hight.

Shuttle bus makes regular trips to the town and less regularly to the beach, and the driver is flexible for anyone wanting to go other than to the standard drop-off point. Breakfast is above average, though not extensive if you limit yourself to a western breakfast. The layout could be a challenge if you have mobility difficulties as their are steps and no lifts, but the staff will no doubt help anyone who needs it.

Stayed at the Ancient house for 5 days in March, had a great time.

I felt that the location was ideal as it was slightly out of town ( walking took approx 12 - 15 mins only) Bikes are also available free of charge and I took one out most days, as it was a great way of getting around.
The level is flat so easy peddling ! it also kept the "peddlers" away from you as you are not such an easy target on the move ,unlike when you venture out on foot !!.

The beach was also a nice and gentle bike ride away and needless to say a stop for a refreshing beer en-route was part of the enjoyment.
Didn`t bother with the free shuttle bus as I enjoyed the air and exercise.

The building itself could do with a touch of paint here and there, and the breakfasts were ok .
Rooms were quiet and of a good size and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: ask for one overlooking the pool

Stayed at Ancient House Resort for 2 nights during our trip to HoiAn last month.

Although the hotel is 1.5km from HoiAn old town and 3km to Cua Dai Beach, the hotel provide free shuttle bus and also bicycles to their hotel guest. If we choose to walk to old town, there are many shops along the way.

Ancient House Resort comprising blocks of 2 storey building with traditional and modern architectural style. The hotel is well maintained. Most important, the rooms are large, tastefully design, clean, full room amenities and comfortable poster beds.

Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was simple but good.

We had a pleasant stayed at Ancient House Resort. Definitely our right choice of a lovely hotel....

We could only stay two nights here but what heaven it was, we transferred from a local 4star with a big damp problem, The rooms here are really large and airey, four poster ish with nets, good bathrooms, the pool area is absolutely idilic however the pool is quite cold for the tropics, good breakfast and friendly helpful staff, a bit of a trek into town but taxis are very cheap for the return, make sure you visit the ancient house which is situated at the rear of the pool area, they make rice noodles there, they must supply all the local restaurants, they are very happy to show you around. al in a great place to stay, would I go back..........tomorrow.

Room Tip: we had ground floor near pool

We booked for four nights here, but when we arrived the manager was very apologetic that our room was undergoing some maintenance, and we were transferred to a nearby 4-star hotel for the first night (which turned out not to be nearly as good as the 3.5 star Ancient House Resort) and offered a free dinner. We were impressed with their handling of the situation.

We really enjoyed our stay. Although the hotel is not in the centre of the old town, the free hotel transfers worked very well, and the driver went out of his way to accommodate us. Our room was on the top floor with a view over the hotel complex and lush vegetation. The room was large and airy, with a pleasant balcony area and huge terrazzo and marble bathroom. Breakfast was a feast, with a wide variety of local and western foods. Advice and local knowledge from desk and tour staff was not as helpful as some other places we stayed in Vietnam, but they were always friendly and greeted us with a welcome cold scented towel on our return to the hotel. We have no hesitation in recommending the hotel however.
