Homestay Accommodation

Riverside Plum Garden Homestay, Hoi An, Best Hotels Homestays under $30 Hoi An, Vietnam

Which hotel?

Would someone pleeease just tell me what the best homestays/hotels in Hoi An under $US30 are!” Ever found yourself combing through copious booking sites looking for hotels and just wishing someone who knew the area would choose them for you? Well, hey what, you’re in luck.

Select hotels

All the Hoi An Hotels listed are ones we have stayed in or ones that have been recommended by Hoi An expats.  That’s why there’s only a few! This section highlights our recommendations in the under $US30 range.

What's the right location for me?

Firstly, whichever location you choose in Hoi An will not be far from anywhere.  Whether you choose to be close to the beach, within walking distance to the Old Town or away from it all and ‘Om-ing’ it in the rice paddies, a taxi ride will cost you no more than 80,000 – 100,000vnd to any major location.  A note on beaches: An Bang Beach is the main beach.  Cua Dai Beach, previously the main one,  was severely eroded in 2014.  However, hotels have restored sections of Cua Dai Beach for their patrons.

I want to be within walking distance

For history and shopping close to the Old Town is best.  More of a lounge-around person or one with kids: the beach.  For party goers its An Hoi with its buckets of cocktails and late-night bars.  But make sure you intermingle it with several $US3 cab fares to An Bang Beach. The music scene there is not to be missed!  For those who like the idea of a quiet retreat then in-between the beach and Old Town, near the rice paddies or on the river, is best.
