Canopy beds, bold red tapestries and patterned sofas lend a sense of playfulness to this sleek Hoi An newcomer on the banks of the Thu Bon River. Bed down in one of the spacious guestrooms (all 119 rooms are at least 431 square feet), which feature seating areas, rainfall showers and L’Occitane bath amenities. Or upgrade to a deluxe room for your own private balcony overlooking the river or the pool. The on-site restaurant, Wa Ku Ku (the name was inspired by the Japanese name of a Vietnamese princess), serves sushi and yakitori for dinner, while the Faifo café offers a morning breakfast buffet and à la carte European, Vietnamese and Hoi An specialties throughout the day. Sip colonial-style cocktails paired with Vietnamese appetizers at the River Bar, which overlooks the Art Nouveau–style pool.
In the Area
Borrow a bicycle from the hotel and ride around Hoi An, arguably Vietnam’s most charming city. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is known as much for its mazelike alleys and beautiful architecture as for its proliferation of custom tailors. Have a bespoke suit, dress or even a pair of shoes made for a fraction of what you’d pay in the West — but allot at least 48 hours for all the necessary fittings. If you schedule your visit to coincide with the monthly full moon festival, you’ll be treated to a magical sight: The ancient town closes to traffic, businesses turn off the electricity, and residents send candlelit paper lanterns down the river.
How to Get There
Hoi An has become a tourist mecca. Finding a good value hotel near the old town can be a challenge. I have reviewed another Hoi An hotel very positively, but their quality had slipped, so I tried this MGallery Hotel. Great location, service, rooms, food, pool. I will be staying there on my next visit for sure.
Hotel Royal, score a perfect ten in almost all departments - ambiance, service, cuisine, recreation, location.
I had the pleasure of enjoying Hoi An's hospitality over 5 days in August on my trip to Hoi An and Da Nang. This gem is located in the centre of Hoi An a stone's throw away from the old town and the night market. We arrived late night and were quickly checked in. The night was comfortable aside from some noise in the corridor which was promptly rectified with a switch to another room the next morning. The breakfast spread was fantastic with not a single dish short of spectacular. The cafe has a wide selection of local and international dishes to suit your mood and tastes. You will enjoy two swimming pools include one at the rooftop with excellent views of the city. This is an ideal choice if you wish to have a premium experience in the City of Hoi An
The food was amazing and the staff, pleasant and attentive.My wife is a cook in a local restaurant, she said the food was excellent but would've liked to see a wider choice outside on the barbecue. In the restaurant the food was fabulous...so much to choose from at the buffet. We will definitely visit again!????
