There are numerous Da Nang hotels right in the city, even though most tourists stay in the famed beach resorts that dot the coastline for twenty miles south to the small city of Hoi An. There are good Da Nang accommodations to be had closer to the city, including one of the most luxurious beach resorts in the country, the exclusive Furama Resort and Spa. The Furama is set in private, beautifully landscaped grounds right on the ocean with its own stretch of private beach. Its deluxe rooms, villas, and palatial suites can face the gardens, the lagoon, or the sea. It has an extraordinary infinity pool, and every other amenity and facility you would think of for a fine resort.
City hotels in Da Nang are primarily of three-star quality or budget hotels. Because of the lure of the beaches that are so close by, few tourists stay right in the city. It is important to do careful research if you are arranging your lodging in Da Nang on your own. Many of the hotels in Da Nang will bill themselves as deluxe international properties, but are actually a bit lower standard than that as they primarily cater to locals and business travelers. This is not due to a true desire to deceive, but rather a product of the newness of tourism as an industry in the country and language barriers.
You will find some of the best Da Nang accommodations in the city at the Green Plaza Hotel. It is clean, comfortable, and has good views of the river and South China Sea. It’s within walking distance of the central business district, so has good opportunities for shopping and dining venues. There is a business center, and the hotel will assist with tours of the surrounding area.
When looking for budget hotels in Da Nang you are better off looking at the properties that bill themselves as three-star Da Nang accommodations on the beaches outside the city. The international airport is located virtually in the city, and the beaches are just a couple miles away. Even if you’re looking for a quick overnight after a late arrival or before an early departure, you are better off at Da Nang hotels on the beaches outside of the city center.
All this may sound like you should give the city itself a wide berth. It is true that most of the best attractions in the region are outside of the city proper. The good news is that these attractions are fabulous, and you have many extremely good Da Nang hotels to choose from just a couple miles away. Most of them have excellent services that will assist you in enjoying tours in the city and surrounding area, transportation, and the kinds of activities that are so popular along the coast. Scuba diving is an important activity all along the country’s more than 2,000 miles of coastline, but it is concentrated heavily beginning at Da Nang and stretching south all the way past Nha Trang and to Ho Chi Minh City. Many of the Da Nang accommodations along the beaches have dive centers, so this is a great place to be if that is of interest to you.
