Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Da Lat has a large selection of quality accommodation, from clean, comfortable US$5 a night hostels to four-star French-colonial style hotels. Places to stay are dotted throughout the city and you'll find better value away from the main tourist centre concentrated around the central market, Xuan Huong Lake and Truong Cong Dinh Street. Unless we specifically mention it, places tend to not have air-conditioning as the climate is cool year-round.
