Review on Saigon. Today we said goodbye to Saigon we enjoyed our 4 day stay, but it's not a city we would rush back to see. The city that never sleeps with its constant honking of horns just to let you know this is where I am. Maybe Saigon is like any other busy capital city, where people are to busy, that life is to busy that it is just a job & …
We flew north into the Danang airport from HCMC and caught a 40 minute cab into the sleepy beach town of Hoi An (for a cool $15). We drove along the coast for most of the way which consisted of one resort construction site after another. In 5 years time it will be an amazing tourist attraction.
We decided to stay in a little resort on the …
We were at the Blue Wave restaurant for lunch as recomendation from hotel staff, excellent food with good prices. Super friendly staff (also owner), fanstastic river view with excellent service and great music! We try alot of food around Viet Nam but their "Special Hoi An spring roll" must be the best I have tried. I strongly recommend this restaurant in Hoi An.
Our flight to Danang was quite early so we set off by taxi to Nha Trang's Airport at about 6AM. This is quite a beautiful drive and in parts is reminiscent of the area around Kiama and further south. It was a nice sunset too. The flight and drive to Danang/HoiAn was uneventful and once we checked into our hotel we ambled into town to look around. …
We arrived back in Vietnam two days ago (was it really two days ago?), later in the afternoon. By the time we checked into our hotel it was dark so we wandered a short ways (in a cab) to a nearby restaurant for dinner. We were the only people at the large restaurant but we enjoyed our food inspite of the soundtrack from Miss Saigon blaring over the …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We loved our stay at Hoi An Riverside Resort & Spa half way between the beach & the town. Clean comfortable & the staff very helpful.

After reading all the glowing reviews, I guess I expected too much.
Paradise in Hoi An Riverside
This resort is simply beautiful architecture, manicured gardens, great restaurant and awesome rooms. The rooms are spacious, decorated with a high sense of elegance and beauty. The swimming pool is nice; the service there is excellent. The restaurant is open and overlooks the river and in the night they put swimming candles in the river and torches in the other riverside making a dinner very romantic.
It could be use as reference for excellence. I will come back.
First the rooms, we had the biggest one facing river on top floor in far corner of resort. Wow -- what a positon above the coconut palms and looking over the river to the paddi fields beyond with workers in their conical hats and water bufaloes. Looking to the right from our balcony I could sit early morning and just watch the local villagers set off for work from thier modest homes. It was all so interesting and fasinating to see a different culture to the West. The room was enormous with polished wooden floors and beautiful wooden and silk covered furniture. Fresh fruit daily (including a huge Pineapple). There was a lovely traditional tea-set in the room to use on a bamboo tray. The pool was attractive -- complimentary small sweet bannanas served by poolside to fill up on. Food was fine but I suggest for one evening trying the restaurant along the road on the river as seen from the hotel river bank. Free shuttle service into Hoian, or bike hire opposite hotel entrance. Definately ask for a river facing room as these are away from the road. The grounds are worth mentioning although not huge, the gardens are attractive, you can feed the fish in the pools and at night time the paths to the diffent blocks of the hotel are lit up with torches. This hotel is beautiful
Beautiful, tranquil hotel

Hoi An Riverside Hotel: Still remembering...
Smiles everywhere, also mines. Tropical garden, immaculate pool, large room, beautiful river life views, candels in the river, good food. Yes, still remembering... Perfect staff. Located off Hoi An, in the road to the beach. There is a free shuttle service to the town and to the beach. Maybe the schedule is unsufficient but this is not a problem at all, the staff can get you a taxi (very cheap). My wife had a little accident in an ankle, and the hotel staff sent a doctor in ten minutes, with a taxi ready to take us to a hospital. Thirty minutes later we had X-ray, diagnostic and medicines. In spite of the accident we enjoyed very much Hoi An (and its full moon festival) even more than the rest of Vietnam, thanks in part to the high level of this hotel.
Stayed in a Riverside Deluxe Suite for 6 days in June. Well worth paying for the riverside room, with a great balcony that overlooks the river and rice fields. They even lit lanterns down the river just after dusk!
My husband and I have stayed at the Riverside Resort a number of times and enjoy it every time. This hotel is owned by3 brothers one of which is Khai of the famous Khai Silk chain of beautiful clothing stores and fashionable eating establishments found in Vietnam (Phnam Phan and Au Mannor Du Khai) there is also a branch of Khai Silk at the Resort and the prices are much cheaper there than in HCM or Hanoi the resort also owns one of the best places to eat in Hoi An called " The Brothers" a very beautiful old French building which is oh so romantic A little bit of trivia is that Michael Caine stayed at The Riverside Resort as a guest while in Hoi An during the filming of The quiet American and the hotel supplied all the catering for the Movie. there is a photograph of Khai and Michael Caine at the reception desk. the Japanese covered bridge in the movie was the location of Pyle's murder.
we stayed at the hoi an riverside for three days. The hotel room was lovely, very clean and the staff helpful. However, although this is clearly an above average hotel it was the least impressive and charming on our trip in vietnam, cambodia and then thailand. It is a very acceptable 4* type hotel but in itself did not add to our trip.
Phantastic service, perfect setting!
Very, very nice boutique resort! from our nicely designed room and the breakfast table we had a wonderful view onto the river and the rice paddy fields. The service is excellent. And it's great fun to rent a motorbike to go to the beach (also great) and the city...
Beautiful boutique hotel
One of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in in terms of service and quality... little touches like clothes being repaired when put in for a service wash and the quality of the food and accommodation leaves me dreaming about going back! Fabulous... Staff even found a fishing rod for my husband as he was bored one (very) rainy afternoon and helped him catch a couple of fish... peaceful and welcoming.
