Where to stay in Dong Ha

Dong Ha

Built up around major transport artery Highway 1, Dong Ha is the most convenient base for DMZ sites but it has as much charm as an oversized truck stop.

No 297 Le Duan St, Dong Ha
US$10 to 20
Golden Hotel

Muong Thanh is a nationwide chain and while we’ve seen some new and shiny versions (like the one in Dong Hoi), their Quang Tri... Read our full review of Muong Thanh Grand Quang Tri Hotel.

Located a few steps down a small lane just off main Highway QL1, Thai Son is a guesthouse yards above any other budget accommodation in Dong Ha. New, bright and cosy, this family-owned joint features decently sized rooms with extras such as air-con, fan, mini-fridge, flatscreen TV and big windows that let in natural light (and curtains if you don’t want it). Rooms have a few pieces of... Read our full review of Thai Son Hotel.
