What to consider before choosing the best hotel in Hoi An?

1.  Proximity to Hoi An Old Town Attractions

When you are choosing a hotel in Hoi An, our recommendation is for you to consider staying as close to the Hoi An Old Town attractions as possible.

This way you can simply pop out of your hotel to explore the town any time you like.

Added bonus here, after a busy few hours of sight-seeing, you are only a short walk away from your hotel and the pool.

2.  Transport and Access to the Hoi An Old Town

Majority of the Hoi An best hotels are within a walking distance from the Old Town. However, if you choose to stay a bit further, you can always hire a scooter (about $7 USD per day), and make your way in and out of the Old Town with ease.

Please note that access within the Old Town by a scooter is time limited. Afternoons are for foot traffic only.

Don't worry here. There are plenty of parking spaces close to all of the entrances.

Alternatively, if you are staying at the Hoi An beach resorts, you will be provided with a (usually free) shuttle bus into Old Town. These shuttle buses usually run every hour until late.

Tickets to the Old Town set you back only about $7 USD per person and you can use it for the whole duration of your stay.

3.  Hotel in Hoi An vs Resort in Hoi An

If you would like to stay in a hotel close to Hoi An Old Town, there are plenty of choices of both luxury hotels with pools and boutique hotels.

Please note, that there are no large resorts in Hoi An Old Town and no major hotel brands either.

If you would like to stay in a resort that has all the luxurious bells and whistles, then of course you can.

Hoi An beach resorts are only a short 15 minute drive away from the the Old Town. All of the resorts offer a (usually free) shuttle bus into Old Town that usually run every hour till late.

Alternatively, you can choose to hire a scooter and come and go as you please.

4.  Hoi An Old Town to Da Nang Airport

Majority of the hotels provide a airport transfer service. Depending on your package, hotels may provide you with a complimentary transfer from Danang to Hoi An.

1. Anantara Hoi An Resort Review

- One of the Best Hoi An Hotels Near Old Town-

Anantara Hoi An Resort - Best Hoi An Hotels

Very elegant and conveniently located close to the Old Town, this is a beautiful and the most popular resort in Hoi An.

This resort represents a 1920's Colonial Style decor, provides you with superb river views, beautiful gardens and of course a magnificent pool!

This is the best accommodation in Hoi An Old Town by far!

The resort offers 6 different types of rooms, including Deluxe River View Rooms and Anantara Riverview Suites.

The resort is one of the best family hotels Hoi An
has to offer, but it is also brilliant for couples holidays too.

This is a very peaceful and luxurious resort, and in my pick as one of the best resorts in Hoi An.

2. Allegro Hoi An - Little Luxury Hotel and Spa Review

Pool at Allegro Resort Hoi An

This hotel is located within a five minute walk to the Old Town and close to all of the Hoi An's attractions.

The rooms are very comfortable, spacious and very stylish.

The staff is super friendly, buffet breakfast is delicious and cocktails are equally awesome! 

If you choose to stay in this hotel, you can relax by the pool on one of the very comfy pool side lounges, or you can choose to get a massage at the spa located on the ground level.

Allegro Resort and Spa Hoi An

When we stayed here on our last trip to Hoi An, we chose a room that was on a higher level, so we could avoid the noise from the street.

Also, we would recommend that you request a room is quiet as there is a bus parking lot next to some of the rooms.

The view from our patio was pretty sad (weeds and rubbish), so maybe request a room with a view on the pool.

3. Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort and Spa Review

Welcome to our personal favourite resort in Hoi An! We have personally stayed here twice now and loved it both times!

Definately one of the best Hoi An accommodation options if you don't mind staying by the beach.

Some of the best features of this resort are:

  • the amazing and super relaxing beach-front facing pool,
  • the delicious buffet breakfasts 
  • awesome Japanese decorated ocean view suites with their own Jacuzzi's and the outdoor showers. 

Now, this is holidaying in style!

Of course, there are more choices of accommodation here, such as the smaller couples and family suites, and garden view rooms as well. 

This resort is suitable for both, honeymooners and family holiday makers as well.

4. Hoi An Central Boutique Hotel and Spa Review

Hoi An Centra Boutique and Spa - Pool

Although the name suggests that this hotel is situated in a central location of Hoi An, it is not as central to the Old Town as we would imagine.

It will take you approximately 15 minutes to walk to the Old Town, which in the typical Hoi An heat, is not that fun.

I would suggest for you to hire a scooter and commute to the Old Town like a local.

Hoi An Centra Boutique and Spa - Room

The Rooms in this hotel are super stylish, spacious and very comfortable. All of the rooms come with their own balcony and nicely stocked up bar fridge.

Our recommendation here, is to grab one of the Grand Deluxe rooms or a Signature Suite, because why not have the best! 

Why you will love this hotel?

  • check
    Stylish and comfortable
  • check
    Great pool and private balconies
  • check
    Great for families, connecting rooms and bunk beds

5. River Suites Hoi An Review

River Suites Hotel Hoi An - Best Hoi An hotels

If you are looking for a quiet little hotel that faces the river and is also located very close to the Old Town, then this hotel is a great pick for you.

We have personally stayed here for a few nights and we loved it!

This is my pick of the best cheap hotel in Hoi An Old Town!

River Suites Hoi An Room

Although it is a very small hotel, the rooms are quite spacious and come with their own free standing bath tub.

And if you feel like a little more relaxation, there is a pool here as well.

The pool is attached to the breakfast area, so it is not the most private spot to lounge at.

We still enjoyed it anyways!


Why you will love this hotel?

  • check
    Very close to the Old Town
  • check
    Clean, tidy and spacious rooms
  • check
    Very affordable Hoi An hotel
  • check

6. La Residencia Hoi An Boutique Hotel and Spa Review

La Residencia Hoi An

La Residencia is a great, Spanish-inspired boutique hotel located only a stone through from the Old Town.

The rooms are super cozy with all the bells and whistles including a four-posted bed. The room decor takes you back to Vietnamese 1920's, which adds a bit of class and sophistication. 

La Residencia Hoi An Rooms - best hotels in Hoi An

This hotel offers great Junior Suites as well as large Residence Suites too. Most of those have great city views, whilst some have partial river views as well. 

It is best to request higher level rooms, in order to minimize the city noise.

The pool is located in the building's basement. In comparison to the other hotel choices, this one is a bit of a let down. 

Why you will love this hotel?

  • check
    Short walking distance from the Old Town
  • check
    Funky Spanish-style hotel
  • check
    Free shuttle bus to the beach

There is a great selection of rooms to suit both, couples and families. There are super cozy Executive River View Suites as well as interconnecting very comfy Deluxe rooms.

When you travel with kids, it is very important to keep your little ones close.

Lasenta Boutique Hotel Hoi An

If you love a 5-Star treatment and a bit of luxury, but have it all for a price of 3-Star hotel, than this is the best hotel near Hoi An Old Town for you!

This hotel comes with tonnes of luxuries, such as an amazing pool, delicious food and of course relaxing setting with panoramic views.

If you would rather face the town, then of course you have that option too, but I would be asking you, why?

Lasenta Boutique Hotel Hoi An Junior Suite with Balcony

This hotel is located slightly away from the Old Town and I would recommend to use a scooter hire option to commute between the two. This way you will save yourself the hustle of walking too far.

You are on holidays after all, you are allowed to be a little lazy.

Alternatively, if you are in any way like us, you can enjoy a swim in a large pool.

Hoi An Historic Hotel - Grand Suite

Choosing a room here is easy. If you want to save money, choose the Superior or a Deluxe room.

Alternatively, if you want to splurge out a little, than spoil yourself to a Grand Deluxe or straight to the Grand Suite (featured in the photo above) instead.

Little Beach Hoi An Boutique Hotel and Spa

If you are looking for a great beach resort with all the bells and whistles and still with a 4-Star price tag, than this is your best pick.

This resort is located at Cua Dai beach, which means that it is not a walking distance away from the Hoi An Old Town.

However, the cultural center of Hoi An can be easily reached by a shuttle bus or a scooter.

Little Beach Hoi An Boutique Hotel and Spa Rooms

This hotel is suitable for both couples and family travelers. You can choose from a romantic Suite Room, spacious Ocean Deluxe Room or a Family Suite, just to mention a few.

Vinh Hung Emerald Resort Hoi An

If you are looking for a bit of a cozy hideaway from the business of the Old Town, then you can choose to stay here.

This little river side resort is still close to the center of Hoi An, but far enough away to have a bit more of a Village feel to it. 

Vinh Hung Emerald Resort Hoi An - Rooms

Most of the apartments have their own balconies which are facing towards the sizable pool.

This is a compact and very affordable little river side resort and it is suitable for both couples and families alike.

This hotel has it all and for a fraction of the price of some of the other hotels here.

Yes, it will take you a 10 minute hike to get to the Old Town, but once at the hotel you will have it all under one roof.

Hoi An Sincerity Hotel and Spa Deluxe Room with Balcony

Hoi An Beach Resort is located 6-km drive from the Hoi An Old Town.

You can hire a bicycle to ride to town, but we would recommend to choose a scooter instead. It is a faster way of transport and you will get a bit more breeze on the way, which helps in Vietnamese heat.
