Vietnam Hotels & Sleeping

Click for larger image

Lodging is not an issue in Vietnam, even if you're traveling on a pretty tight budget. Accommodation in Vietnam ranges from scruffy US$6-a-night dorm accommodation in backpacking hostels to world-class resorts, both in large cities and in popular coastal and rural destinations.

Even backpacking hostels and budget hotels are far cleaner and nicer than in neighbouring countries (Cambodia, Thailand, Laos), and cheap hotels that charge US$8-10 for a double room are often very clean and equipped with towels, clean white sheets, soap, disposable toothbrushes and so on.

Homestay accommodation is easily booked through travel agents. However, some tourists are disappointed to learn that the "homestay" they booked is really a commercial hotel or the accommodation is situated in a separate building from the family home.

Hanoi now has some hostels for family called Hanoi Family Hostel. Rooms here are large and with more beds for children. Room rate are good price.

Upmarket hotels in the main cities are considerably more expensive than in Thailand. However, many equivalent sub $8 rooms can still be found in the coastal resorts.

Hotel Services

Service in a lot of the very inexpensive hotels is actually quite good (since the rate that a person pays per night could equal a Vietnamese national's weekly pay), although daily cleaning and modern amenities like television may not be provided.

In hotels costing a few dollars more ($12 per room upwards, more in Hanoi) you can expect an en suite bathroom, telephone, air conditioning and television. As with hotels elsewhere in the world, mini-refrigerators in Vietnamese hotels are often stocked with drinks and snacks, but these can be horribly overpriced and you would be much better off buying such items on the street.

Adequate plumbing can be a problem in some hotels but the standard is constantly improving.

The more high-end hotels offer a multitude of amenities; such as elaborate buffets with local cuisine, spa treatments, local sightseeing packages, etc.
