This is the 3rd in the Ancient House brand and the most new. The decor is modern and gorgeous. The huge tub in the foyer is eye-catching, but there are also 2 vanities, a shower, and a huge bedroom. They also provided a welcome plate of fruit, and universal outlets (US and Euro plugs) are bountiful (a boon for techies with gadgets to recharge). The breakfast buffet was excellent with many choices of both western and Asian food. A free shuttle bus to the Old Town is available. Because of its distance from the hustle and bustle of Old Town it's very quiet.
On the negative side, you're gonna need that bus. It's an 8 minute ride to town and there are no shops or restaurants within a reasonable walking distance if you get tired of the hotel offerings. The Ancient House River Resort is about half the distance (about 4 mins by bus).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our resort is the ideal base for exploring the Hoi An area, and especially the lifestyles of the Hoi An people. You will discover the simpleness and truthfulness that is in the hearts of local residents. This small historic town remains firmly anchored in the past, and proudly preserves its antique wooden buildings and quaint streets fronting onto a peaceful river scene. Hoi An people possess a graceful smile. Such a smile will balance all of your emotions, thus more and more visitors love to stay for some more days to be truly alive in Hoi An's lifestyle. Some friends that we know have lived here in the local community for tens of years. History has been viewed as having a nourishing effect on people's spiritual lives; therefore, there is no doubt that 'staying for some more days' has become a nice saying we often hear from visitors. The reasons were bowls of Quang noodles and 'Cao Lau'. Wide 'non la'. Paddy fields. Lines of coconuts. White stork families. Or is it because of local youngsters' bright white teeth? Or the blackened ones of aged ladies and gentlemen who have devoted their lives to their fatherland? In the murmuring songs here and there, there is the creaking sound of the hammock and the rhythmic chanting of the paddy seeds. It can also be the magic of the storks every afternoon, fluttering in the air and then landing onto slender coconut leaves like perching pieces of transparent silk on the line between heaven and earth. ... more less
