My wife and I spent five wonderful honeymoon nights at the Ancient House Resort. Bottom line: Beautiful grounds, lots of Soviets floating around in a luxuriant boutique-ey pool, and a mediocre staff. The place must be one of Hoi An's absolute top hotels, no question, but it has a long way to go on the road to greatness. Staff problems are the easiest to fix. Put people-people in guest-relations and lock everyone else in back. Actually, every employee should ideally be a people-person in case one escapes the back office and runs into a guest by freak accident. The concierge has no idea what's going on (but this is generally true for Asia, unfortunately). But it was overall a lovely place to stay in Hoi An and I would recommend it highly if they could get a grip on their guest relations. Tip: When a guest makes a request, try to look like you're happy they asked and if you can't answer at the time, make sure you get back to them. This whole "I don't know what to do" thing gets old fast with repetition. Anyway, not sure there's any better in Hoi An, but since Hoi An is an absolute MUST, I guess you can't do much better than staying at Ancient House... it does have it's redeeming qualities (i.e., nice breakfast, GREAT gift store, etc.). Just manage your expectations a bit.
