Super value little gem in Da Lat but location lets it down.
Overall we were happywith our stay in Da Lat and in particular at the Hai Long Vuong hotel. We opted for a mountain view room which cost $12 (about £9) excluding breakfast.
Our room was bright, with a shared balcony and excellent view over the city. The room was clean and modern with a flat screen TV and pretty cool light bulb ceiling feature I’ve never seen before.
Viet the owner, and his family are a delight and they helped us book our Easy Rider tour to Mue Ni. He also took considerable time explaining the the layout of the city, the best places to eat etc. He was trustworthy and kind and we immediately warmed to him.
Value wise, this hotel is a gem. It’s basic but gives you everything you need and more. However its location lets it down being quite a wal from the centre of town and shares its road with a two prominent Dog & Cat meat restaurants which made for some pretty disgusting sites when we went past. We were shocked by what we saw and it did take away from our experience quite a bit.
That said, it isn’t the hotels fault and they do a good job overall. as such, our recommendation is if you can put up with its surroundings the Hai Long Vuong is a great place to stay.
