Staying in Quy Nhon in General
Despite the fact that Quy Nhon is not yet touristy, the city has been a must-do destination for holiday retreats. Unspoiled beaches, original landscapes, and low price services are the main factors that attract a lot of Vietnamese and Westerners to Quy Nhon if they happen to know about this beautiful city. Because of that, the accommodation industry of the city has been growing steadily and sustainably. There are just as many choices of resorts, hotels, and other small-to-medium lodging services for you to choose from, depending on your budget.
Most of the resorts in Quy Nhon are located just a bit farther away from the city center, for the most private and fulfilling experience. They all have beautiful pristine beaches, well-preserved surroundings, marble swimming pools, spas, and even other luxurious needs like golf courses. And the room rates start just below 100 USD.
Hotels are mostly located in the very heart of the city, close to the Quy Nhon Beach. They are surrounded by many local restaurants, cafes, and shops for the most convenience. Internally, the hotels are well-furnished and should satisfy your expectations as you book. Pricing starts at only 15 USD. I paid just 10 USD per night for my four-day vacation in Quy Nhon in a local hotel.
Other lodgings such as hostels, homestays, and BnBs begin at 5 USD (bunk bed in a dorm) and range to around 100 USD (whole house), located everywhere. So it is rather a matter of choosing your favorite location and there should be a variety of lodging options there. Most of these stays are now available on AirBnB, just check their map of Quy Nhon and book away!

Located right in the heart of Quy Nhon, alongside the beach, with a terrace and views of the ocean, Seagull Hotel has always been one of the top accommodations in Quy Nhon.

Muong Thanh Quy Nhon Hotel (from 40 USD)
If you do know already, Muong Thanh is a rapidly growing hotel chain of Vietnam, thriving in expansion all over Asia. Therefore, their standards are good and the pricing is very competitive compared to the international chains out there. Yet, they are still in the field of medium budget hotels rather than providing luxurious experiences. So, what you get is truly what you pay for, and sometimes, you get even more! Apart from the basic accommodation with decent meals provided, they also have a swimming pool, a tennis court, saunas, and spas. The only downside is that it takes a while to walk to the beach.
Hoang Yen Hotel (from 20 USD)
Hoang Yen Hotel is a reliable budget option for your seaside accommodation in Quy Nhon. It is located right in the center, on the An Duong Vuong avenue, towards the beach and facing the central shopping center.
