Crazy House, Da Lat

3.8
Resembling a giant deviated tree, Crazy House represents an architectural marvel mixing artistic sensibilities of Antoni Gaudi, Salvador Dali, and Walt Disney. Opened in 1990, the bizarre five-storey structure was designed and constructed by a Vietnamese architect who incorporated many Expressionist themes and hired local craftsmen to make the building look organic and alive. You can visit up to ten themed guest rooms, each portraying a particular animal, such as eagle, tiger, or kangaroo. The maze-like building lacks proper security measures in certain areas, so pay attention to your belongings. Put Crazy House and other Da Lat attractions into our Da Lat road trip tool , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Funny. Little scary but bridges properly secured so not dangerous. Beautiful paintings especially in aquarium.

  • A weird place but interesting. If anyone has the slightest fears about ‘health and safety’, forget it, there’s none! The steepest steps, with the flimsiest of barriers to prevent you falling 30 feet! ...  more »
  • This place was great. We went as visitors. So much fun to walk around and get lost. Reasonably priced. Would definitely consider staying here. Dont park in the spaces beside where they charge for park...  more »

  • The premise of this place is a little fun, but it's very worn and they only focus on adding new parts rather than repairs. We were staying one night and as a hotel it would get 0 stars. Messed up our booking made 6 months earlier and had given our room to someone else. Didn't offer any compensation and we had to argue that we should at least get the price difference between the two rooms back (1/3 of original price). Service being outright rude in the process. The room then didn't even have body lotion or separate hand towels, tiles missing in the shower, shower handle fixture broken. Also a big lack of outside lighting with many of the existing lamps not working. Could go on but instead, absolutely don't stay there, if you're close then sure a short visit will not be a big waste of time.
  • Interesting place to visit. You can spend one hour walking around the fairy houses and you'd better go early in the morning before the crowds arrive. Crazy house has a lovely garden with many blooming flowers. The view ot Da Lat city from the highest floor is deeply recommended. Still, there are constructions and more crazy houses are about to be build. Spending a night there should be a great experience, prices for double room are fairly cheap.
  • An absolute must see in In Đã lát. This place is bonkers but a little bit of fun. As visit is not world changing, but it's cook to poke around all the nooks and crannies. You can see into some of the rooms and think what it must be like if you could afford to stay there. Very good.
  • Odd and slightly worth seeing, but consider it is maybe 20% finished. You pay to walk in a construction yard with lots of steps and most things in rough brick and concrete. Your entrance fee helps them finish their hotel rooms, and as a hotel guest you have hundreds or more tourists passing by your door. Steps are so narrow usually you need to wait for 10-15 people to pass, as there's only a few points where you can cross. Big or tall people beware, it is not going to be easy. Lastly questionable safety as you go up quite high and railing is at knee height or non existent. In the USA or Europe you would not get safety approval to open to the public
  • Awesome place. It is a labyrinth and keep going. It has a mini cafe on site and a few tourist shops hidden inside the maze. You can also stay here. The rooms looked amazing. 50000dong to enter.
