Guide to Hotels and Lodging in Vietnam
Home to 2,140 miles of coastline, the world’s biggest cave, and the famous Ban Gioc Waterfall, Vietnam lures tourists to explore its land more now than it ever did before. Since there are so many hotels in Vietnam and other types of lodging available, it’s not difficult to find a place to stay no matter what city or region you’re visiting.
When planned ahead, the type of accommodation you book can enhance your vacation. Staying at a luxury hotel offers opportunities to relax at the property and enjoy the on-site amenities while reserving a bungalow on the coast allows you to indulge in panoramic sea views.
For the most part, every kind of lodging in Vietnam has cheaper and more costly options to fit every budget.
Traveling on a budget has never been easier, thanks to all the cheap hotels in Vietnam. Almost everywhere in the country has a good selection of inexpensive accommodations, which is popular among tourists of all kinds looking to save money.
Foreign currency stretches further in Vietnam, so don’t be quick to assume that an economic accommodation is not a good quality one. Cheap hotels in Vietnam usually vary in price from around $7 to $35 per night.
Homestays are all over Vietnam and are another inexpensive way to save on your trip. Usually, these accommodations are family-run and set up on a resident’s personal property. Some homestays are only made up of a room or two, while others have entire floors or sections of someone’s home.
In general, staying at a homestay in Vietnam is a fun and more personal experience, as the hosts and guests often interact with one another and even share meals. The average cost of a night at a homestay ranges from $6 to $20 per day.
Especially when it comes to solo travelers or couples, hostels are a popular lodging choice. While they don’t offer as much privacy as a hotel or even a homestay, people who stay at hostels can often meet other tourists more easily and enjoy interacting with the hosts, too. While many hostels offer private room options, most of them have rooms with bunk beds and shared bathrooms.
The average rate for staying in a hostel is comparable to a homestay or cheap hotel and usually falls into the $7-20 range per evening.
Luxury hotels are found in just about every city and region of Vietnam and include four and five-star properties, many of which have numerous incredible on-site amenities. Wellness treatments and massages are popular ways to get pampered throughout the country, so most luxury hotels have an on-site spa center.
Additionally, many higher-end hotels have multiple restaurants, a fitness center, at least one swimming pool and are centrally located to popular tourist attractions. On average, a stay at a luxury hotel will cost anywhere from $50 to $200 per night.
Like luxury hotels, beach resorts are higher-end accommodations that feature many on-site amenities to provide guests with the option of being entertained both on and off the property. Many are 5 star hotels. Depending on what part of Vietnam you’re visiting, a stay at a beach resort can be relatively cheap or as expensive as it is elsewhere in the world.
Most resorts come with perks like on-site entertainment, a fitness center, a spa, and complimentary breakfasts of some sort. The cost of a stay at one of these properties will often be from $60 to $300 per night, with most prices falling in the middle of that range.
Finding beach lodging in Vietnam isn’t too tricky, as there are accommodations in every category available in most of the oceanside towns. Several luxury hotels, resorts, cheap hotels, hostels, and homestays can be found within walking distance, so it depends on what kind of vacation experience you’re looking for.
Some travelers like having the choice of swimming in the ocean or a regular pool, while other tourists spend all their time at the beach with no time at their hotel’s property. Because of the wide variety of places to stay, the average cost for beach lodging can be anywhere from $10 per night to $300 at certain resorts.
Staying at a villa in Vietnam is generally on the luxurious side, but depending on what city you’re in determines how expensive it is. These accommodations are often in more rural areas like along the beach or the mountains versus in the city, making them excellent options for a retreat or escape from a busy life.
The most significant difference between a villa and a luxury hotel room is more privacy and space. Staying in a villa can cost anywhere from $40 to several hundred dollars per night.
Bungalows offer more exotic lodging and are usually set in rural areas that feature the natural environment. The majority of this accommodation type can be found on a lake, ocean, or in the mountains, offering guests an idyllic place to relax and recharge.
While some bungalows can run on the pricey side, most of them are pretty inexpensive and can almost qualify as “glamping,” thanks to a few modern conveniences. The average price of a bungalow stays averages between $20-$100 per night.
Much like bungalows, cottages are a unique overnight experience that allows you to retreat into nature during your trip to Vietnam. While most cottages or cabins are usually in mountainous areas, there are some in cities along the coast. The typical cost of booking a cottage is around $65-$80 per night.
Booking a short-term vacation rental has its perks, like having an entire residence to yourself and feeling more immersed with the local culture, but you’ll also likely be on your own when navigating the area. The cost of one of these rentals varies significantly since the host sets prices, but in general, they range between $50 and $120 per night.
Note: It’s essential to keep in mind that you may need a copy of your passport when checking into your lodging while traveling in Vietnam.
