Da Nang is one of the most fascinating cities in all of Vietnam. The city has great beaches, vibrant nightlife and world class cuisine. In addition Da Nang is a good base for exploring other nearby destinations such as Hue and Hoi An.
But choosing where to stay in a new city can be challenging. And this is especially true for Da Nang where the quality of the hotels could vary a lot. Sadly I heard stories of people who stayed in bad hotels far away from the beach or the city center.
But the good news is that I can help you. I have lived in Vietnam since April 2016, and I have helped many friends finding great accommodations. And to be able to help as many people as possible I compiled all my knowledge into this handy guide.
Let’s dive right in!
Where To Stay In Da Nang Vietnam 2018
Most visitors to Da Nang will stay in the city center or in the beach area.
- If you plan to soak up some sun you should stay close to the beach. This area also has most of the cities budget accommodations.
- The city center has more options for those who wish to spend more on their accommodations. Here you also find the best restaurants and nightlife.
As you can see I divided the hotels into 7 different categories. This is done to be able to accommodate as many budgets as possible. Hence I hope my guide will be helpful to everyone, no matter if you are a budget traveler, a middle-class family or a business traveler.
