Ancient House Resort
Ancient House Resort, Hoi An, Vietnam
Situated by the banks of the Thu Bon river, the hotel is modeled around a 200 year old ancient Chinese merchant's house. The house itself is located at the back of the resort and the Vietnamese family who live there still produce around 200 kilograms of rice noodles in the house a day using traditional methods. The resort's 52 rooms are simple and elegant in design and most have a private balcony or terrace area overlooking the lush, tropical gardens.
There is also a lovely, small swimming pool, providing welcome relief in the hotter months. Although there is a restaurant en site, feedback has been quite poor so we recommend exploring the dining options available in the Old Town, of which there are many. There is a regular shuttle service on offer from the hotel, or alternatively it would take approximately 20 minutes to walk in.
