How much do I need to pay for a good bed?

  • $3-$7 will get you a dorm bed and a “free breakfast”, consisting of a piece of bread, egg and coffee.
  • $8-15 will get you “a bed” in a hotel with a hard mattress. An old TV, 1/4 working WIFI. Most of the time a hot shower, and sometimes a “free breakfast”.
  • $25-50 will get a bed usually with a soft mattress and a hot shower. Nearly working Wifi.
  • $50-80 will get a bed with a soft mattress. Usually some service, Wifi and a limited choice breakfast buffet.
  • $80-100 will get you a bed with a soft mattress. Service, swimming pool, and a large breakfast buffet.
  • $100+ will get you a very nice resort with swimming pools, gyms, spa’s and everything else that comes with a nice resort!

Hotel prices depend on the location and the above list is very generalized. Usually, it is worth attempting to go into the $25-50 category if wanting to travel in respectable conditions. Most remote areas do not have $25-50 rooms. Remote areas have the $8-15 category, so get a good hotel when and where you can!

  1. Not always possible outside the main cities, trying to book an Airbnb homestay and they have been surprisingly comfortable. You get to meet a local family most of the time, they offer home cooked meals and they make sure the room is comfortable.

    1. I agree. Air B n B is underrated and under priced in Vietnam at the moment.
