Ancient House is a traditional, family-run hotel in a riverside location in the UNESCO world heritage town of Hoi An on the central coast of Vietnam. Built on the site of a 200 year old merchant’s house, this recently refurbished hotel offers 52 well-appointed rooms and suites, a restaurant, bar, swimming pool, and spa, nestled within verdant tropical gardens. Charming and friendly, Ancient House is a mid-range option offering good value for travellers seeking a tranquil base within easy access of the vibrant sights and attractions of Hoi An Old Town.

Combining modern comforts with traditional architecture, Ancient House’s restaurant serves a combination of Vietnamese and western cuisine, with buffet breakfasts and set menu or a la carte options for lunch and dinner, along with regular barbeques. Within the leafy grounds is a generous swimming pool with loungers and a poolside bar. There is a well-equipped gym on site, plus a souvenir shop and a relaxing spa.

The hotel is found in a tranquil location on the banks of the De Vong River, 2km from the historic centre of Hoi An. Complimentary bicycles are available to guests and a free shuttle service operates into the old town, and to nearby Cua Dai Beach.

The accommodation comprises 50 rooms of various sizes, and two suites. Each room has a double or twin beds, and a contemporary ensuite bathroom, and many come with balconies overlooking the hotel gardens. All units have air-conditioning, satellite TV, minibar and Wi-Fi. The slightly larger ‘special’ rooms have spacious bathrooms with separate bathtub and shower. The two suites are significantly more substantial; each of these has a separate lounge area, a generous bathroom, and a large terrace or balcony with seating.

Children are warmly welcome at Ancient House. Each double room can sleep up to three guests, with extra beds available on request. The suites can each accommodate up to five, and are a great option for families or larger groups.

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”

  • We had the most amazing time. It exceeded all my hopes of what the trip would be. The guides, the hotels - everything was of such a wonderful quality. Thank you for organizing everything. I will absolutely recommend Tourdust and use you again.
