Vinh Hung 1 Hotel
Classic Hoi An charm
What we say:
The only accommodation choice currently available immediately within the pedestrianised old town zone, Vinh Hung 1 occupies a gorgeous old wooden Chinese trading house that you might recognise from the iconic Michael Caine film, The Quiet American. While comfortable, this hotel is all about atmosphere, especially as night falls and the balconied wooden corridors glow hauntingly with bright red lanterns.
All six rooms are huge and come with air-con, though we reckon it might struggle in the hotel's drafty confines. The best are the Chinese-styled balcony rooms in the front, and while the rooms in the back are similarly unique they're a bit dingy in comparison. If you're lucky enough to bag a front room, a cool late afternoon drink on the balcony overlooking Tran Phu is the perfect way to wrap yourself in the charm Hoi An is famous for. All rooms are filled with antiques that include early 20th century hand-carved chairs and foyers to go with rotary telephones so old you probably won't even understand how they work. Antique wooden framed beds are draped in elegant white cotton curtains. Bathrooms are voluptuous and include antique wooden tubs, though we'd be hesitant to fill them all the way as those old floor boards are pretty creaky.
While the entire hotel is something of an antique, rooms do have small TVs and WiFi is free throughout. Customers are invited to use the pool facilities at Vinh Hung One's sister hotel, Vinh Hung Resort over on Hoi An Islet, and complimentary breakfasts are served a short walk away at Vinh Hung Restaurant. Vinh Hung 1 isn't advisable for families with small children thanks to the many in-room antiques and thin walls, but it's perfect for a couple looking to take full advantage of Hoi An's romantic air.
