We spent five or six nights @ Hai Long Vuong Hotel.
First of all, it's more like a big Homestay, since the family lives in the same building ;)
The owners are extremely nice and helpfull, and over the time of our stay they have helped us out numerous times (sightseeing, transportation, food etc.).
By the way, their english is very good :)
So, for the first two nights we had a room with no windows to the outside, so we asked if we could switch to a room with windows. As soon as one was free (as I said, after two nights) we switched rooms and got a really big room (two double beds), and an awesome big window for the same price!
The rooms are cleaned every day, I think, if you leave your keys at the reception when you leave the hotel. Something I wouldn't have expected that from a hotel that's so cheap, but I guess that's one of the advantages of being the guest in a family-run hotel :)
Yes, the rooms are a little bit noisy, but I never had problem with sleeping (both our rooms were on the first floor), and as far as I know they are soundproofing the rooms in the next weeks (the sound-proofing material is already there ;) ).
After all, I had a hard time deciding if I'll go with four or five points.
I went with five, since this is probably one of the cheapest (if not THE cheapest) hotel in the area, but you still get room-service, reasonable-sized, clean rooms, a helpful couple if you ever need something and so on.
They also rent out bikes and have one of the fastest laundrys I have ever encountered on my ongoing trip through Asia.
While this hotel might not be perfect, I have been to so much worse, and the value for money is unbeatable. That's why I went with five points.
By the way, yes, it's a little bit outside of the city, but we walked there in about 15 minutes and there's enough stores and restaurants close, so that you don't have to walk too far on a rainy day.
Would definitely go here again, if I'm on a budget in Dalat :)
