I. 1-star hotels in Dalat

1. Dalat Flower hotel

Rates from $10 – $39

The Dalat Flower’s staffs are enthusiastic and very friendly. They are willing to guide you in detail about Dalat tourism. Rooms are clean, cool and fragrant, especially cleaned many times a day, which is rare for hotels of this range. The hotel is in the city center, closed to Dalat market, Xuan Huong lake so it’s very convenient for travelling.

The only con of Dalat Flower is that it’s located in a small alley so you should not go back to the hotel too late at night. 

For me, this hotel is excellent in quality for that price when compared to other 1-star hotels (even 2-star) in Dalat.
