Hoi An Ancient House Resort & Spa

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 October 2012

We stayed for 3 nights at Ancient House and thoroughly enjoyed the experience after a room change. Our first night was in a very nice room but it was on the top level and toward the road. At about 5am we were woken by 'chanting' and music being broadcast from somewhere close by via loudspeaker - ( after much questioning we were unable to find out what it was, but am assuming it is government related as there are a lot of schools and government buildings in the area). This continued for about an hour by which time we were totally awake and not impressed. A complaint resulted in a room change to a lower level room which was more centrally located and the problem was solved.
Rooms were clean and spacious, the grounds very pleasant, and the breakfast choices very good. The free shuttle to town or beach was useful, although it is only a couple of dollars to take a cab, and the walk is a pleasant experience unless it is really hot. We were not going to go to the beach but were persuaded by another couple and very glad we did. It was clean and quiet with plenty of restaurants overlooking the sand, and beach lounges, showers & towels were available for the hotel guests.
Staff were very pleasant and obliging at all times and ready with a cold towel every time we returned from an outing, the only time we encountered this in Vietnam.

Room Tip: unless you are a sound sleeper try to get a centrally located room, or one toward the back.

We stayed Ancient House because where we were staying was just terrible. We walked in and asked for a room and they gave us one of the best room they had for much less than listed rate.

They gave us welcome drinks while we were waiting for the room to be ready.

The room was spacious and clean. had a GREAT bathroom. A/C was way too cold for my taste but my GF likes it like a freezer, so she was very happy.

The breakfast buffet was pretty good too. They had cereals, which I craved most while a month long trip in Vietnam, but they were VERY stale. I suppose it can't be helped due to the hugh humidity. (Unless, it's one of those in sealed small cups).

The pool was not as big as it looks in the photo but very clean and enjoyable.

They had shuttle buses to beach and down town Hoi An. If you time yourself, it's very convenient and hustle-free.

They had a small fitness gym with "ancient" equipment. I thought it was kinda funny. I suppose working out is not on the top priority list where it's 100 degree every day.

Wow factor when walking into this small boutique resort. Be careful the stairs to your rooms are very slippery when raining but the use of resort umbrellas was great. Loved that you could walk or use the free shuttle to town and feel apart of this wonderful city.
The breakfast was lavish but maybe eat out for evening meals as there are so many delicious world class restaurants in Hoi An to sample.

We stayed in Ancient House in Hoi An from September 18th to 22nd, 2012. Our stay in the wonderful town of Hoi An was enhanced by this lovely hotel. The staff was friendly, our room was spacious and clean and the resort feel was most enjoyable. We particularly appreciated the cool clothes that were always offered when we returned from a hot walk back from town. The town is in easy walking distance and the shuttle bus to the incredibly beautiful beach was most appreciated. We would have stayed a few extra days if they had room - but they were fully booked. We highly recommend Hoi An as a stop on your tour of Vietnam and we recommend Ancient House as a place to stay.

Room Tip: The way this hotel is organized I doubt there are any "bad" rooms. Our rooms faced the po...

With such a wide range of places to stay in Hoi Ann it is hard to find one that is not too slick but fits a family budget. I can definitely recommend Ancient House which was a bit run down has clean spacious rooms, a great breakfast nice swimming areas with character and close enough to town for a walk or there is a regular bus. Perfect for families.

What a welcomed break from the hurley burley manic Hanoi.
Good to see the Trip advisor award in a prominent place,staff were excellent and we would recomend here to the traveller that does'nt need the "marbled hi-rise).
We took advantage of a hotel supplied car, for a visit to Hue ,175 k over the mountains and back via the Tunnel- £60 for a new Ford explorer and driver for the day.
The second day was a day out to My-son ruins £40.
Hoi- an was only a pleasent 1.5k stroll to the waterfront for boat trips and shopping(dont forget to haggle),together with the added benefit of the courtesy bus to the private beach was a bonus.
We are both retired and throughly enjoyed the area and would reccomend the resort.

Room Tip: A garden view of the pool is to be reccomended
