Top Hotels and Restaurants in Hoi An

Most hotels in Hoi An are resorts near the beach or historic boutique hotels around the Old Town. Major hotels offer spacious rooms, convenient facilities, swimming pools, restaurants and bars.

The hotels we recommend are 4-star, because of the quality of their service (always high), their convenient locations (they are all on the edge or in the center of the town), and their family-friendly environments.

The restaurants are popular among tourists and locals alike. You can choose between traditional Hoi An dishes like Cau Lao and rice noodles with pork; or Indian food, if you wish to give your taste buds a break from Vietnamese flavors; or fusion cuisine that blends different cooking styles from different countries.
