Nam Long Hotel
A terrific budget hotel, this is a welcoming and immaculately clean place run by Mrs Nga and her husband...
Cham Villas Resort
Arguably the most boutique of many ‘boutique’ resorts in Mui Ne, there are just 20 stylish villas available here, so it does tend to book up during peak periods. Verdant gardens surround the large pool and there is 60m-strip of private beach.
Full Moon Beach Resort
One of the pioneering resorts in Mui Ne, the committed owners have consistently upgraded this place to keep up with the competition. Beachfront bungalows are very atmospheric with wall hangings and jacuzzi-like bathtubs...
Thien Nga Hotel
Offering amazing value, this place has lovely, spacious, light and airy rooms, all with balcony and a contemporary feel (though the bathrooms are more prosaic). Book one at the rear if you can for garden views...
Victoria Chau Doc Hotel
Seriously stylish for Chau Doc, the Victoria is built in classic colonial style. With a striking location on the riverfront, the grand rooms here have timber floors, inviting bathtubs and classy drapes...
6 On Sixteen Boutique Hotel
Decked out with designer textiles, ethnic art and interesting locally made furniture, 6 on Sixteen has a warm and welcoming ambience...
Hanoi Elite Hotel
It’s surprising what you can find in the most narrow and hidden-away of lanes in the Old Quarter...
Kim Tho Hotel
A smart hotel, verging on the boutique, Kim Tho sets a new standard for midrange properties in the Mekong. The rooms are stylish throughout and include designer bathrooms. The US$50 river-view rooms are a great deal. There is also a rooftop coffee bar.
Park Hyatt Saigon
Ho Chi Minh City
Setting the standard as the smartest hotel in Saigon, the Park Hyatt has a prime location opposite the Opera House. This neoclassical structure is as easy on the eye as its lavishly appointed rooms...
La Veranda Resort Phu Quoc M Gallery Collection
Still the most stylish place to stay on Phu Quoc, La Veranda is designed in colonial style and is small enough to remain intimate, with just 44 rooms...
Flamingo Suites' Ha Van Hotel
Under French management, this hotel strives to offer a higher standard of service than local competition. The rooms are well-appointed and include a bit more decorative flair than the neighbours...
Cao Nguyen Hotel
Buon Ma Thuot
This is the kind of hotel that advertises its massage and karaoke services in prominent neon lights. Still, the carpeted rooms look decent, if a little worn around the edges.
Hai Phong Monaco Hotel
This modern and central hotel has a real polish about it, including the smart lobby where the helpful reception staff speak some English...
Holiday Sapa Hotel
This castle-esque hotel has had a name change but is still looking a little weary. It does have great views (if the sun’s out).
Phuong Tam Hotel
At the time of research the hotel was undergoing refurbishment. Completed rooms had been spruced up with modern bathroom fittings and new furniture.
Hanoi Paloma Hotel
Opening in late 2008, this fashionable, modern hotel has a prime position on happening Xuan Dieu facing the West Lake. There are four price categories (though all adopt a minimalist style with modish furniture and flat-screen TV)...
Hoang Yen Hotel
The smart rooms at this 10-storey pad overlooking the beach in the south of town remain a very good deal. The trim includes satellite TV and minibar, as well as some heavy wooden furnishings...
Prince 1 Hotel
The original Prince hotel has a grand-looking lobby, helpful staff and large rooms with imposing Chinese carved furniture and all the trimmings (including TV and minibar).
Sunshine 3 Hotel
This is the best of the three Sunshine hotels, with bright, well-appointed accommodation. All rooms have a computer and fridge; those at the front are very generously proportioned but suffer a degree of street noise.
Huu Nghi Hotel
It’s overpriced and it looks like a Soviet-style concrete block but the rooms are in decent shape. Insist on a discount.
Sao Nam Hotel (Southern Star Hotel)
Ho Chi Minh City
Tucked away in a quiet alley, the ‘Southern Star’ has 22 rooms that feature sparkling new tiles and bathrooms, plus TV and fridge. Free internet for guests.
Thuy Anh Hotel
This well-run hotel has been looking after travellers since 1993 and it’s easy to understand why it remains so busy...
