  • In Dalat, every day felt very excited, not only because of the temptations of the town full of European style but the simplicity of folk customs.

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.
