“Oasis on the river with real style ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

We checked into the Anantara and were extremely impressed by the service we received and the location to the old town. The views of the river from the breakfast balcony were breathtaking early in the morning. The breakfast selection was impressive and service received fantastic. We'll definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

This is a really beautiful, relaxing setting by the river and within easy walking distance of the town. Lovely, obliging staff ( I had to call a doctor to have a minor operation and they dealt with that with aplomb) and pleasant , comfortable, well furnished rooms.My only doubt is the food: breakfast was disappointingly ordinary and the Christmas Gala dinner no better than these things normally are (yes, I don't really like them) . The staff put on a well rehearsed, hugely enjoyable Christmas show, the culmination of which was the spa therapist giving a staggeringly good rendition of "I will always love you ' !!!! You need a room on the second floor and you would do well to avoid the town side of the complex: loudspeaker exhortations to the townspeople start alarmingly early !!!

Great hotel in Hoi An. We could walk out the door and down the street to a multitude of shops, restaurants, laundry and tailors. Loved the Chicken Lemongrass Pizza at the outdoor patio of bar. Such a romantic, yet comfortable hotel. Restaurant great and faced river. It's hard to get lost in this city. I would recommend using spa treatments in town since hotel is overpriced, considering competition.

The hotel is perfectly located at the edge of the touristy town. The bustling ancient town is only a10 minute walk away and once you enter the hotel grounds, you walk into a peaceful colonial setting by the river. The rooms are not as luxe as the other Anantara resorts but comfortable. The resort offers complimentary bicycles which is great to explore and the staff are very friendly.

We got a garden view room but regret not booking the river view. The rooms face into a courtyard and the balconies all face a communal walkway that guests walk through to get to their room. The river view would have been even more peaceful and would be slightly more private.

Arrived late Christmas Eve for a 4 night stay. Missed the Gala Dinner, but the hotel arranged for special meal on Christmas Day, including a special menu for my son who is vegetarian.

From the welcoming drink when we arrived to the Xmas presents (lanterns in the room) everything oozed quality and luxury. The rooms are split level with sliding doors to large bathroom. Outside on the terrace are comfortable bench style seats to relax. Wifi works well throughout and views are stunning day and night.

Breakfast provides a good choice and it would be hard to suggest improvements? Best tables (for river views) are set for two rather than for families or larger groups, but most tables will also benefit from views.

Unfortunately the weather did not lend itself for using the pool (which is not large or deep) but the hotel does provide the use of cycles which are useful to get around the town (as well as avoiding all the store owners attempts to engage you in conversation/entice you in to their store).

Safe to say that this was our favourite hotel from the four we stayed in during our two week stay.

We stayed in this hotel as part of a tour group so unable to comment on value for money, however this is a perfect choice for a relaxed resort style holiday. There is a lovely pool, although the water was chilly when we were there in January.
It is very close to the Old Town area and right on the river so pleasant to walk or bike from.
The breakfast was not as good as other hotels we stayed in during our tour of Vietnam but the staff were attentive and friendly.
The rooms are spacious with attractive outside sitting areas that were pleasant to relax in.
