East Bank of the Han River
There are only a handful of places across the Han River from central Da Nang. They offer a quieter location than the city centre, and most of the hotels take advantage of the beautiful river views. However, prices along the river are inflated, and the location is pretty inconvenient, as it puts you at a minimum 15-minute walk from any of the restaurants, bars or sights across the bridge. Conversely, it's not much closer to the beach really -- you'll still need to take a taxi or a xe om.

Despite being less convenient than hotels in town, the riverside hotels on Tran Hung Dao all seem to have inflated rates. Except for the Hai Vy, that is. The recently opened Hai Vy might be small, ... Read the full review of Hai Vy Hotel.

The dark, cramped lobby is a prelude to the rooms, which are likewise dimly lit and rather stuffy. Though moderately comfortable, with good tile bathrooms, cable TVs, and fridges, the rooms are not ... Read the full review of Y Van Riverside Hotel.
For a city without many major attractions, Da Nang has loads and loads of hotels. Most are targeted toward midrange business travellers, but a few cheaper options are scattered around town. In general, hotel standards are high, and the city's hotel staff are among the friendliest in the country. The appearance of Minh Travel on Tran Phu means that true budget accommodation is now available in Da Nang's city centre, but book ahead if you want to snap up one of their 20 rooms in high season.

Ba Na Mountain
This mountain, about 45 km west of Da Nang, is usually visited as a daytrip, but you can also stay for the night. You won't exactly be spoiled for options -- there are only two hotels -- but the low visitor rate ensures you'll be able to snag a room. It's a great option if you're looking to escape the heat of China Beach -- since temperatures are often 10 degrees cooler than in Da Nang. May through July are the prime months for sunny whether and clear, panoramic views from the 1,478 metre peak. Once the rainy season starts in September the mountain is almost constantly shrouded in cloud, meaning that when you could be sunning on the sand down below, you'll be shivering in the drizzle up here. In November and December, the temperature plummets and there are frequent thunderstorms, and travel is not recommended. Note that if you're staying on Ba Na mountain, you'll need to pay an entrance fee at the base.
