There is an abundance of hotels, resorts and homestays in Hoi An, something for any budget from one bedroom, cozy backpacker’s rooms to fully furnished studio apartments with swimming pools and free massages.
The great thing about Hoi An is its size. You can wander down the road and pass a dozen hotels or B&B’s that could accommodate your stay here.
Many travelers to Hoi An use various booking websites to book their stay, prior to arrival. This is a convenient and often cheaper option, however there are some things to look out for when booking online. Photos can often be misleading, so here are a few helpful hints to dodge the pitfalls:
- Check the forums. Choose a hotel that has many reviews and that averages well.
- Look at the age of the hotel and see if it has been renovated lately.
- Unless it’s about the view, look for hotels one or two streets back from the river. You can find just as good a room for half the price. Location is important but keep in mind, you can cycle around all of Hoi An in about 30min.
- Don’t get sucked in by hotels offering all-inclusive food and beverage deals. Remember, Hoi An has an abundance of amazing restaurants including bars and cafes, offering great food at even greater prices. Spend your money on the streets, sampling what Hoi An has to offer.
At the end of the day you will choose your hotel according to your budget, what kind of holiday you are on and what is important to you. Check out our top picks and recommendations, to see if you are interested in either Homestays, mid range Hotels or the many beautiful and exclusive Resorts.
