For a city without many major attractions, Da Nang has loads of hotels. Most are targeted toward midrange business travellers and domestic tourists, but it’s still one of the cheapest cities to base yourself in, with plenty of budget options — decent, city-centre three-stars come in under $25, although there is a marked decline in quality and options for those on a lower budget. In general, hotel standards are high, and the city’s hotel staff are among the friendliest in the country we’ve found. For location, the best places to look are river-facing Bach Dang or the parallel running Tran Phu Street from where most of the attractions, restaurants and nightlife are within a short walk. This article suggests 3 budget hotels in Da Nang, Vietnam.
The Funtastic is the first and only international standard hostel in Da Nang. Situated nearer the train and bus stations than the riverfont (it’s a good 20-minute power walk away), it makes a funtastic place to stay for sociable young travellers who are keen to explore the nooks and crannies of the city – especially if you have a keen interest in cuisine. The funkily designed hostel comprises three dorms, one six-bed female-only one and two mixed (four and six beds), all with shared cubical shower rooms.
Happy Days Hotel
Built in 2013, the 28-room, nine-floor Happy Days is difficult to find fault with. Staff are fun and friendly and rooms are comfortable, clean and modern, with every home comfort from air-con through to hairdryers. The feature-wall wallpaper is a bit loud and beds are dripping in Happy Day Hotel silk accessories, but at least you won’t forget the name of your hotel after a big night out on Bach Dang Street.
Hoang Linh Hotel
The Hoang Linh is a good example of the quality you can expect at this price for a centrally located Da Nang hotel. Built in 2011, this five-floor, 17-room hotel has perfectly appointed, clean comfortable rooms with modern bathrooms, high-pressure walk-in shower units, cable TV and fridge/minibars. There are two room types, with the river-facing deluxe having a bit more room and of course the view, but otherwise not too different from the superior.
