Accommodation in Vietnam and where we chose to lay our head

Triple R Apartment Da Nang

What is the  most asked question for trip planners?

 

Do I need a visa to get in?

 

Ah yes, forgot about about that one. 

 
Okay, what is the second most asked question from trip planners? That's right, where is the best accommodation in Vietnam?
 
Our decision to hit the road meant we were in a great position to 'test drive' (pun intended), as many accommodation options as possible.
 

Here we'll aim to give you all the goss on how to find the best accommodation in Vietnam for you and your needs.

 

We'll also happily tell you about the stuff we didn't like. You may or may not agree, that is up to you. We figured the more info we give, the better informed you'll be.

 
Also, we traveled this beautiful country on an unfixed itinerary. That entailed going pretty much wherever we want, whenever we want.  The hope was to test out everything from hotels to hostel and anything between. We were restricted on how much we could spend (as a personal challenge) but hope you find a decent variety of some of Vietnam's cheapest accommodation options.
 
The best part is that we traveled the whole of Vietnam for the better part of 10 months! It gave us a decent amount of time to try out a variety of options to tell you about.
 
If you know of a great place you want us to help shout from the rooftops or curious about a place, then hit us up in the comments! We love recommendations and making our Tribe part of the adventures!
What do WE look for when we search for accommodation?
 
That's easy. First we determine what our next destination is going to be.  This is to figure out if it will be a short or long stay depending on what there is to do and how long we plan on staying. 
 
We then look for the following;
 
  • Within our budget
  • Onsite parking
  • Private bathroom
  • Air conditioning
  • Free WiFi
We use HotelsCombined to help us sort through the endless options on all the endless booking sites
 
That link is an affiliate link, you will find more of them on this page and on anything related to accommodation on this site. Why do we do this?  Because we can earn a small commission if you chose to use this awesome tool too. This way you get a deal at no extra cost to you and we stay on the road to find more options to tell you about. Win-win, right? 
And massive thanks for the support, we really do appreciate it!

Once we have a short list we run them through Google Maps. We do this to check what is around them in the form of restaurants, cafes and supermarkets. Basically anything that will make our stay as hassle free as possible.

 
When we find a winner, we book that puppy!
 

Want to see more on this process?

  We made a vlog specifically explaining this whole process, along with a follow up so you can see what the end result was.

 

Knowing what you are looking for in accommodation helps a lot.  Having our basic criteria has helped speed up the process of find accommodation in Vietnam. Super awesome when you're doing things on the fly like us.

We can see we've given you much to ponder and that's great.
