Vietnam, Đà Nẵng – Liverpool Hotel

For our 10 day stay in Đà Nẵng we found a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with a small kitchen, washing machine and balcony at Liverpool Hotel for just $25 US per night. This seemed a good rate and it had reasonable recent reviews so we gave it a shot but our expectations weren’t through the roof (luckily).

The first room we were shown to on the 3rd floor had no washing machine and balcony so once we questioned this we were moved to a room on a 4th floor a few hours later that did. The balcony was small anyway but it’s nice to get some decent ‘fresh’ air but the washing machine was a bust with long wash cycles not really doing much and a spin cycle that nearly put the machine through the wall/floor. Thankfully they had a machine on the top floor that coud be used by guests and a large open area for drying.

Our apartment was two separate hotel rooms joined by a small hallway so the boys had their own bedroom with double bed, bathroom, air conditioning unit and wall mounted TV but no windows so it got a bit stuffy. Liverpool Hotel_Da Nang_Vietnam_2The main room consisted of a double bed, bathroom, small kitchen (sink, kettle, hotplate, medium-sized refrigerator and a few cups, plates and cutlery), daybed, air conditioning unit. wall mounted TV and blackout drapes.Liverpool Hotel_Da Nang_Vietnam_1The apartment was pretty clean and the linen was of good quality with comfortable furnishings. The wi-fi was patchy on the first day and none existent on the second. Noticing all but one light active on the modem we advised staff and had to keep asking about it all day until someone finally swapped the modem from another floor. After this it was better but still not great.

There was a hotel being built across the street from us so there was noise from that from sunrise to sunset (and sometimes even later) seven days a week but this area of Đà Nẵng is full of construction so would be hard to avoid unless you were in the more expensive city centre near the river.Liverpool Hotel_Da Nang_VietnamThere are numerous mini marts and eating choices all within a short walk and the beach is nice and prettymuch litter free (although still lots of cigarette butts). For the cost it wasn’t too bad, but we wouldn’t be rushing back here.

Distant to:

  • The beach – 200m
  • Dragon Bridge – 3km
  • Son Tra Peninsula/Chùa Linh Ứng/Lady Buddha – 10.5km

There are many taxis in the area and Grabs are widely available. Uber Vietnam has now been sold to Grab.

Price – $34.57 NZD per night
