Vietnam Accommodation - Which one suitables for your budget?

During the majority of your trip to Vietnam, you'll stay in simple but comfortable, hotels and guesthouses. These are, wherever possible, brimming with Vietnamese charm and owned by local people. The rooms in these properties always have private ensuite bathrooms. Occasionally, there will be the added perk of a swimming pool. Hotels in Vietnam in more isolated locations - small islands and jungles - is often quite simple. Equally, if you choose to stay with the hill tribes in the north, you will find that provisions are pretty primitive. There are no hotels or guesthouses in this remote territory, which makes such modules outstanding for their cultural authenticity.

It should be noted that our categories are not official star ratings.
Comfort Level 1: Very simple accommodation
This is basic Vietnam accommodation, in a hill tribe hut or stilted house. You will be provided with a mattress on the wooden floor. Showers are behind the fence alongside the stream. You will stay in one of the hill tribe huts courtesy of a village family. Cosy, very authentic and positively primitive.

Comfort Level 2: Simple accommodation
Simple but reasonably comfortable. Examples of Level 2 accommodation include a cabin or room with its own small bathroom. In such circumstances there is usually a fan, and sometimes even air-conditioning. These hotels generally possess an authentic atmosphere and/or are situated in a particularly spectacular location.

Comfort Level 3: Comfortable accommodation
Most of the hotels in Vietnam offered by Vietnam Travel Plan falls within this category. You can expect a mid-range bungalow or hotel/guesthouse room with bathroom, fan and usually air-conditioning. Sometimes you will even find a swimming pool on the premises.

Comfort Level 4: Very comfortable accommodation
At this level of Vietnam accommodation, things begin to get a little more luxurious. You will be accommodated within a spacious bungalow or room with fan and air-conditioned, and you will usually find a swimming pool in the property. 

Comfort Level 5: Luxury accommodation
Spacious bungalow or deluxe hotel room with luxurious furnishings, large bathroom and air-conditioning, within very stylish properties. You can expect swimming pools in all Level 5 accommodation in Vietnam (with the exception of Hanoi). Prepare to be pampered.
