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
The rooms here are beautifully designed with attention to detail. The property is walking distance to all that you want to see in Hoi An. The staff were great, the rooms were comfortable and well maintained. I would recommend this hotel and stay there again. Value for money was also excellent
Beautiful hotel with nice rooms and good services. The staff are kind and friendly. Nice view over the town and the river on the rooftop bar. Good location, just 10mins walking to the old town. Bicycles provided for free which is great.
Stayed at this hotel for a night on December 10th on 7th floor. Hotel is not far away from Hoi An Old town; only 10 minutes walk. Room is big and clean. Comfortable bed.
Breakfast was so good; the best among 3 hotels we stayed during this Vietnam trip. Beef Pho is highly recommended. Have also tried the spa, quite good as well. Only minor drawback which is we can hear when ppl closed the door and talk on the corridor.
We stayed here for five nights in November after a few hectic days in Saigon and Ha Noi and it didn’t disappoint. We had booked a king executive room and were upgraded to a 70 m2 suite which was amazing. We were in the new wing which also had the rooftop pool and to be honest we hardly left the hotel. Included was the executive lounge benefits and afternoon cocktails made by Mai and Thu were divine and their service was impeccable. It is a quick and easy walk into the old town where there is lots of amazing food. Highly recommend the Hotel Royal if you want a 5 star experience in a fantastic part of the world.
Rooms are spectacular.
Rooftop Bar & Pool is the place to relax and hangout.
Visited here twice in the last 4 months.
Friendliest staff in Hoi An.
Provide bikes for hire for free.
Hired these everyday out to markets, dinner and the sunset cruise.
HIGHLY recommend !!!
