Quang Ngai

Accommodation is spread out, so the trick to staying in Quang Ngai is to decide where to base yourself based on how you're arriving and leaving. You can stay near the train station or bus station, for instance, or on the edge of town near Ba To park which provides easy access to the Son My museum, the beach and Highway 1A. Wherever you stay, don't feel like you're missing out by not 'exploring the town'. There's nothing much to see.

Dong Khanh Hotel
Backpacker - Under US$10
16-17 Ba Trieu St, Quang Ngai
T: (055) 824 481

The Dong Khanh offers rooms for the same price as their neighbour, the Quang Vinh, but the offerings here are a much better value -- cleaner, better atmosphere, and a much more attentive and cheerful staff. The rooms come with tables and chairs, air-con, cable TV, desks and tubs in the bath. The painted wood furnishings don't exactly reek opulence, but we've seem much worse for the price. Some of...

Hoa Vien
Backpacker - Under US$10
8 Phan Chu Trinh St, Quang Ngai
T: (055) 823 455

This place gives on to the triangular park at the centre of town, across from the Hung Vuong Hotel. It's in a good location for getting things done during your stay, though it isn't particularly close to either the bus or the train. It features soft beds with basic bedding, beat-up furniture, and big, buzzing, window-mounted air-con units. Fan options are not available. There's also a... Read our full review of Hoa Vien.

Hung Vuong Hotel
Midrange - US$20 to 50
45 Hung Vuong St, Quang Ngai
T: (055) 710 477

This centrally-located mid-range place makes sense if you're looking for comfort and convenience for an overnight stay. The standard rooms have small, but soft and comfy beds -- no points for the industrial grey carpeting throughout, nor for the decor, which is distinctly lacking in flair, but it's all clean and all the rooms have good furnishings -- including tubs in the bathroom. The living... Read our full review of Hung Vuong Hotel.

Le Loi Guesthouse
Backpacker - Under US$10
25-27A Le Loi, Quang Ngai
T: (055) 835 904

This place is a bit east of the roundabout where sits the Central Hotel, and is notable for good deals on fan rooms, cheap air-con rooms, and proximity to the bus station. The rooms are only okay -- a bit cramped, but functional, with acceptable bathrooms and clean enough to do for a night. A good choice if you're just passing through and want to save a couple...

Loc Thinh Guest House
Backpacker - Under US$10
12-14 Nguyen Chanh, Quang Ngai
T: (055) 811 567

The Loc Thinh's chief virtue is that it's a short, 300 metre walk from the train station. The rooms are also priced well for what you get -- clean and basic, no complaints. The prices take an impressive drop if you can do without air-con. There are plenty of places to eat and there's internet one block over on Nguyen Thuy St, and there's an ATM at the...

Petro Song Tra Hotel
Flashpacker - US$10 to 20
2 Quang Trung St, Quang Ngai
T: (055) 822 665

This three-star place, near the Tra Khuc River bridge and Ba To Park, is your mid-range option if you're staying in the north of town. It's not much to look at from the outside, but the standard rooms are roughly equivalent to what you'd get at the Hung Vuong in the centre of town -- comfortable, well-equipped -- and the industrial carpet on the floors is blue here rather than grey. The suites... Read our full review of Petro Song Tra Hotel.

Van Hong
Backpacker - Under US$10
20 Hai Ba Trung St, Quang Ngai
T: (055) 710 590

The Van Hong was full on our visit so we can't speak to the rooms, but we were impressed by the cheap singles and thought we should let you know. We wouldn't expect much, but we reckon it's gotta be better than the Quang Vinh down the road, and it's usually a good sign when a place books up. The TVs are broadcast only, and there are no fridges, but the rooms all have hot-water baths. Very... Read our full review of Van Hong.

Central Hotel
Midrange - US$20 to 50
784 Quang Trung St, Quang Ngai
T: (055) 829 999

This dilapidated four-star outfit isn't centrally located, but is convenient to the bus station. It's really falling apart, and they don't seem to be putting any effort into fixing it up. The furniture is worn, the walls are scuffed up, and the carpeting we saw had long black streaks all over it from furniture being moved around. Parts of the hotel looked like they'd been abandoned for years and... Read our full review of Central Hotel.

Hong Cuong Guest House
Backpacker - Under US$10
126 Thuong Dinh, Quang Ngai

This is a cheap option near the train station -- just take a left at the roundabout 300 metres from the station, and it's another couple hundred metres down the road. The rooms here are ridiculously spare with very flimsy furnishings and blank walls. The beds are a bit firm as well. If you're headed directly to Son My, they'll be able to hook you up with a...

My Tra Hotel
Midrange - US$20 to 50
Km 1, Highway 24B, Quang Ngai
T: (055) 842 985

If you're shopping for a room in this price range, there are better options. It does have its virtues -- in a quite spot on the Tra Khuc river. It has a pool, an ATM and a restaurant on premises. The rooms are standard three-star fare -- with air-con, cable TV, good furnishing -- all done in a slightly-ill-conceived chocolate brown theme throughout. We found the beds a bit tiny, the balconies not... Read our full review of My Tra Hotel.

Quang Vinh Hotel
Backpacker - Under US$10
8 Ba Trieu St, Quang Ngai
T: (055) 826 187

This looked to be a promising option for budget travellers staying on the north side of town, but what we found were really crappy rooms that are not particularly well-maintained, overseen by a bored and listless staff. For much better quality for the same price, head a few doors east to the Dong Khanh, and for prices that can't be beat, check out the Van Hong on the same road, just west of the...
