Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Most accommodation is located along the main road in Phong Nha town, and it's all of decent quality and fairly priced although the front facing rooms can be quite noisy due to high levels of traffic thundering past during the early hours. Most places are set up for large tour groups, with huge restaurants in the lobby, don’t be surprised if your ‘double’ room comes kitted out with six beds -- this is standard for Vietnamese hotels. Over the last couple of years a few very good home-stays have appeared along the river and out of town nearer the National Park, these small family run businesses and offer a far better insight in to park life, with easy access to some stunning cycle routes and trekking.
