“Horrible!”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

We stayed here 2 nights after we had been dropped of here in a minibus. At first it looked OK, the rooms are big, and since it even was in the lonely planet we tought it was OK. The shower didn't work propperly, most of the time no water (and cold) the musquito nets are actually a hole with a little bit of net in it and worst of all our open tour bustickets got stolen from our room during our motorcycletour. We booked the motorcycletour in the hotel with this guy who enters the bus on arrival and then wants to give you some information after you've checked in. He told us normally it is costs 30 dollars but he charges 20. He gives you a list of all sights and you can pay afterwards. The trip itself was great with nice guides. But when we arrived back we had missed some sights and when we confronted the guy who sokd us the tour he had this information form he showed is the day before only now with a price of 30 dollars. We didn't even want to pay 20 because he lied to us, but he didn't let us go blocked the door and told the busdriver not to take us (this scene played during our departure from dalat), so we had to pay him...
The open bustickets that got stolen were a different story. They still had our information @ hahn cafe so we got new ones for free. We feld the cleaner did it because he was a weird guy. He spoke no english so when the girl from the reception came an we said we wanted to go to the police she said we could go there but we wouldn't get our passports back if we did.
All in all a horror stay at this hotel and I would recommend not to go there.

We stayed here for two nights in late September, in hindsight we should have checked out on day one but we had a tour booked and just seemed ok, but the second night the dust mites properly dug in, we ended up sleeping in our own sleeping bag liners and using our own pillow cases. My wife slept in her rain proof with the hood up! We both left with bunged up noses and painful sinuses.

We also have reason to believe our open bus tickets were sold on to a cheaper company as the quality of bus we arrived on was not repeated.

All in all it may be cheap but you get what you pay for and we would definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone!

Room Tip: Book a different hotel!

We decided to stay at this hotel as our bus dropped us off outside and we decided to have a look. Normally we would not stay at the hotels that the bus companies take you to, but when we were told the room was only $10 for a double room with breakfast (fairly basic) included, we couldn't say no! The room was huge, had all the usual amenities and it was spotless. The only issue was that the shower often lost pressure and stopped working which isn't great when you still have shampoo in your hair!!!!

We booked an 'Easy-rider' day trip through the hotel which was a fantastic way to see the countryside. Make sure you find out exactly what is included in the price though, because there are often hidden charges, such as entrance fees and lunch that they catch you out with, depending on which tour you sign up for.

Also, there is a massive family-sized room which can easily sleep 5 people!

When we arrived to Dalat, we didn't want to stay here because it's the place where open tours buses stop from Mui ne. But after taking a look to the rooms, we changed our minds.
The rooms are very spacious, clean and they have tv, wi-fi and hot water. The breakfast is also included. Everything for a very cheap price.
The hotel is around 10' walking to the city center.
Be ready to receive one million offers from the hotel staff for travels and tours.

I discovered this hotel just by reading reviews on Tripadvisor, and I was happy to have stayed at this hotel. The staff here were very nice and very helpful. The hotel is clean, spacious and extremely homely and cosy. Breakfast is homely and good.There are computers with internet for you to use freely.

Reviewed 11 December 2010

We found this hotel when we were dropped out the front having taken the bus from mui ne to dalat. We were hesitant at first as it didn't look like much from the outside and the drive way was loose gravel and broken rocks. When we looked at the rooms however we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms started at US$8 for a single, $10 for a double and $12 for a triple. We ended up choosing the triple room as the price difference was minimal and the size substantial. The rooms were clean and had a toilet and shower (included together - meaning no separate shower area as it is next to the toilet).

The hotel staff are all university students and can speak decent English. They are all helpful and nice. Breakfast was included in the price and consisted of bread and your choice of extra (we had eggs) as well as tea and coffee.

They are affiliated with the "freelance" riders which differ to the easy riders. My girlfriend and I paid US$30 for one of their riders to take us on a tour of dalat and the surrounding countryside. We chose to take our own scooter and followed him on his bike. It was a great way to spend the day.

Free internet and wifi are available as well.

All in all a good place to stay. We ended up staying a second night as we saw no need to find anywhere else.
