A charming riverside resort
The location of Hoi An Riverside isn't exactly convenient -- it's neither walking distance from the beach nor the old town.
Thankfully, they make staying here worth the extra travel time. This charming riverside resort is an excellent choice, with lush tropical gardens and elegant Vietnamese/Japanese-style rooms with large luxurious bathrooms. Superior rooms feel a little cramped, especially the twins, and the dark curtains and accessories although new make the rooms feel a bit dated. The riverview rooms have outstanding views and are very private. There is a good-sized pool and while the hotel's claim that it is the best boutique hotel in Vietnam is a bit much, this is a great resort to really relax and unwind. Staff are welcoming and outgoing, and eager to treat their guests well. Keep an eye out for special deals and internet rates as it’s not unusual in the low season to pick up a room for less than $50. Walk in rates don’t come with such a good discount, but room upgrades are not unheard of if they are quiet.
