Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Stroll along the picturesque Thu Bon River from the old town and you’ll reach the River Town Hotel, perching on the verdant banks of An Hoi Island.

Rooms at River Town

Choose between 77 rooms and suites of varying sizes, which flaunt smart cream interiors, coffee coloured woods, and Vietnamese ornaments. Every room has its own unique art pieces and wall hangings, and all enjoy views out over the Thu Bon River or Hoi An city skyline.

Food and drink

Highly praised for its sumptuous restaurant, dining at River Town is a culinary delight. Breakfast is buffet style and consists of Western and Vietnamese classics, with freshly baked pastries and a surplus of fresh fruits. During the evening, try local favourites such as Cao Lau, a noodle dish with pork and greens, or Banh Mi, a Vietnamese bread. Pre or post dinner beverages can be taken at the bar, which serves up a rich selection of cocktails, smoothies and health juices, along with all the classics.


As you enter the hotel you’ll be greeted with scented cold towels and juice, to be enjoyed outside on the spacious sun terrace if you wish. In this tranquil outdoor area are two swimming pools, each bordered by loungers and tropical greenery. There’s also a well-equipped fitness centre for those wanting to keep in shape, plus a concierge service to help you make the most of your stay in the capital.

Activities at River Town

Hoi An’s UNESCO listed old town is just a 10-minute stroll from the hotel, where you’ll encounter ancient Buddhist temples, fascinating museums and colonial architecture. Bicycles are available to borrow from the hotel and are a fantastic way to explore the city. To escape the crowds, take a day trip to the traditional villages on the neighbouring island, take part in a cooking class to learn the art of delectable Vietnamese cuisine, or set off on a Hoi An snorkeling tour or seaside excursion to the sugar white sands of An Bang beach – the hotel runs a free shuffle service to and from the beach daily.
