Comfy, midrange rooms with river views
The Bamboo Green Riverside was renovated in 2012, and the rooms are well maintained, bright, cheerful and decorated to an international standard with built-in furnishings, tubs in the bathroom and cable TV.
The staff are slightly stand-offish, but professional. Best of all, the place offers incredible views over the river directly over the Song Han swing bridge, which rotates every morning at around 02:00; it's quite an amazing sight if that kind of thing rocks your boat. The hotel is located right in the centre of all the action in downtown Da Nang, so it can get a bit noisy in the lower floors from early morning fishing fleets, heavy motorbike traffic during the day and nearby late-night bars and clubs - try to bag a room up top for a quiet night's sleep and the best views. All things considered, the rates here are a bargain. In the evenings, locals gather along the riverside to catch the evening breeze and watch the bridges light up, gazing at the light show supplied by hundreds of motorbikes zipping back and forth across them.
