Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The distinctive mustard yellow-hued Hotel Royal Hoi An – MGallery by Sofitel has a pretty and tranquil setting by the Thu Bon River, and makes the most of beautiful Hoi An’s rich heritage. This boutique hotel offers the best of both worlds – it is just moments from the iconic 18th-century Japanese Covered Bridge and the centre of the UNESCO-listed Old Town, yet is suitably distanced from the crowds.

Rooms at Hotel Royal Hoi An - MGallery by Sofitel

The bedrooms are plush and spacious, with a traditional style featuring both Japanese and Indochine touches. They come with a regal colour scheme of rich reds and royal blues, alongside plush beds, wooden floors, lantern-style lighting and Vietnamese rugs. The luxurious bathrooms offer high-end amenities to complement the rain showers and full-size bathtubs. They have fantastic views of the Hoi An skyline and the Thu Bon River, and some rooms and suites also have balconies.

Food & Drink

You can enjoy exquisite food at not one but two exceptional restaurants here, which continue the Vietnamese/Japanese fusion theme. Indulge in Japanese cuisine at the Wakaku restaurant (named after a Vietnamese princess), which serves up exceptional sushi, and try both local and international favourites at the Faifo Café, which also offers a tempting breakfast buffet.


The fitness centre is the perfect place for a workout, but if relaxation is more your thing, head to the spa to pamper yourself with a massage or enjoy a session in the sauna. Cool off in style in the rooftop Art Nouveau pool, followed by a drink at the bar, accompanied by panoramic Hoi An views. We recommend the refreshing Indochine Martini, featuring ginger, pineapple and lime.

Activities at Hotel Royal Hoi An - MGallery by Sofitel

Step right out into the heart of Hoi An, and discover its illustrious history, fascinating museums and colourful festivals. For a special occasion, enjoy a delicious afternoon tea before cycling to the pier and boarding your very own private boat for a romantic sunset cruise on the Thu Bon River, before returning to the hotel for a moonlit poolside dinner.
