Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa


Hoi An, located on the country’s central coast, is one of the most beautiful and well-liked tourist destinations and is simply not to be missed. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the historic Old Town features stunning timber stores that haven’t altered in hundreds of years. It really is amazing to observe Vietnamese residents riding along streets decorated with lanterns while wearing conical hats when there are no automobiles permitted.


Choosing where to stay in Hoi An can make quite a difference to your enjoyment. The Old Town also has incredible dining, an increasingly buzzing nightlife and is famous for its high concentration of tailor’s shops where you can have anything made to fit, from shoes and dresses to suits and ballgowns. There’s also a wonderful central market and more to be discovered outside the Old Town.

Hoi An sits on the coast, with the beach less than 15 minutes away. It also has a river winding through it, which is the centre of city life, home to local markets and fishing boats in the day, and at night, you’ll find glowing lanterns, boat tours and a range of bars and restaurants where you can watch the world go by.

Hoi An is a UNESCO Heritage Site. Here’s where to stay in Hoi An.

If you’ve never been to Hoi An, then Cam Pho is where you should stay.

Cam Pho surrounds Hoi An’s Old Town, which doesn’t have accommodation itself due to being a protected heritage sight – but this is as close as you’ll get.

Staying here means you’ll be minutes from the Central Market, Japanese Covered Bridge, along with all of the city’s temples, shops and galleries.

There’s a good range of affordable accommodation, along with some of the best dining in all of Vietnam.

Being close to the river, you can enjoy a quiet drink in a bar or a wild night in a club, depending on what you prefer, along with visiting Hoi An’s famous Night Market and having your pick of tailor shops to make a souvenir to take home.


  • In the heart of the action, Cam Pho borders the Ancient Town, which is where all of the most famous attractions are located.
  • Also home to excellent restaurants, bars, tailor shops, nightlife and more.
  • A good range of accommodation for all budgets.


  • It can be a popular place to stay so demand is high, and can potentially be noisy in certain areas.

You might be thinking, Da Nang isn’t in Hoi An; why would I stay there? In fact, Da Nang can be one of the best places to base yourself if you want to visit Hoi An for a few reasons.

Firstly, if you’re arriving in Hoi An by train and sometimes, bus, the station itself is actually in Da Nang, from where you’ll need to hop into a 30-minute taxi to Hoi An anyway.

Yet Da Nang still has its own amazing set of things to see and do, from bars and restaurants along the riverside to the fire-breathing Dragon Bridge and a beautiful beachfront.

Doing the Hai Van Pass? It’s a long day trip, so you may want to end it in Danang which is on the way, rather than driving onwards to Hoi An at night.
