    So we have booked flights to VN in April with 6yr old girl and 9 yr old boy. Our plans are:

    Ho Chi Minh City for 3 days - Cu chi tunnels and botanic gardens planned.

    Then upto Madagui for few days at the resort to include visit to Dambri falls.

    Then to Nha Trang for 4 days - no plans yet but I've heard beaches are lovely here???

    Then Hoi An for a couple days, we've been for day trip before so will just explore a bit more.

    Then Hue for 4 days - no plans as yet.

    I've been looking a hotels on Trip advisor and in the rough guide for short list, but if anyone with small children and have been somewhere they would recommend at any of the above locations, I'd really appreciate it. Budget is £25-£30 per night. Planning to get hotel as we travel so gives us more flexibility if we decide to stay somewhere longer or shorter than planned.

    Any opinions, advise, ideas are welcomed. I am reading the rough guide but there's not as much information for families. Many thanks

    Hi,

    We recently ran a story on family-friendly accommodation in Hoi An - you can read it here the first option may fit the bill and is well within your budget.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you, I've had a look at your link and B'Lan House looks like it'll fit the bill very well and a big bonus that its under our budget too :-) Would you recommend that we book in advance or just turn up?

    Just need few more places like this for the other destinations. We've short listed La Jolie Hotel, Hai Long 5, Tan Hai Long 4 and Northern Hotel for HCMC.

    If you know what you're dates are going to be I'd drop them en email to seal it up. There are plenty of other places to stay in Hoi An though...

    None of the other hotels you mention ring a bell sorry.

    Thank you, I've booked B'lan as we particularly want the Japanese room.

    Thang - thank you for your offer but we've been Halong Bay twice already, time to explore other parts.

    Well you've alrready booked, so it's a bit late. I would not have been hitting Vietnam with the kids. I'd have done Thailand. BUT... too late now. Have a good one. hope it works out for you.

    We've been to VN with the kids before when they were 3 and 5 and they really liked it though we only were in the North, and didn't do so many trips, hence we wanted to explore more areas this time. Think are really excited about it, my main concerns are safety.
