Hoi An lies roughly halfway along Vietnam’s 3,300-kilometer coastline, close to Da Nang. In recent years it has become a popular destination for several reasons. Not only is the old town a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but there are charming beaches and untouched countryside close by. The influx of tourists has led to the creation of some amazing hotels in Hoi An. All of which can make it rather hard to decide where to stay. So, if you’re struggling to know Where to Stay in Hoi An, check out our recommendations below.
The Old Town is where many visitors like to base themselves. Achingly beautiful, many of its streets date back to the 1400s. Recognized as one of the best-preserved trading ports from the period, it mixes local and foreign influences. What’s more, it means you’re within striking distance of various tours, such as our Insider Hoi An City Tour. Alternatively, you might want to take to the city’s waterways with our Boat Tour and Cooking Class.

Laluna Hoi An Riverside Hotel
The structures lining the riverside which form Laluna Hoi An Riverside Hotel may look a little northern European to some. However, the welcome guests receive is clearly Vietnamese.
