Where to stay in Da Lat

Long considered a summer retreat town, Da Lat offers plenty of accommodations, great and small, to choose from. Head down to the lake to find the most luxurious options in town, with old French colonial buildings featuring lake-view rooms, spas, and fine-dining restaurants, as well as some newer resort-style options offering ample grounds, golf courses, and scenic views. Head back from the water and the colonial areas to discover simpler hotels and guesthouses, with comfortable rooms, Wi-Fi, and breakfast included, as well as a number of dormitory-style hostels.

  • listening " King Palace" that remind of nice decor and fancy place. However, This palace cannot be compared to those grand palaces typically found in Europe. The building, rooms, deco are rather basic...  more »

  • It's a nice place to visit if you are in Da lat. I especially enjoy the park and pine tree around the palace. The palace itself is interesting and still contains the original furniture. I liked the queen workshop as well as the relative simplicity of the place.
  • It look similar to Bach Dinh in Vung Tau. But is quite bigger and fresher than in VT. A good place to visit. The price: 20000vnd
  • Nice in the palace. They said tourist not make noise in palace house but all of women staff make noise. Looks Vietnam cutural for make noise.
  • I travel for history and culture, so this place is a must see one for me. What I like most is the story from the guide of this place. Thanks to him, I know everything about the palace.
  • One of the top 10 "must visit" places in Da Lat, visiting every room in the mansion will help you learn a bit about 20th century history of Da Lat and Vietnam. There is also a nice park with beautiful flowers worth using your camera !
