Old school place with attached cafe
What we say:
This hotel has been around since before Vietnam opened its doors to foreign visitors and it seems that it hasn't seen a lick of paint since. All rooms are Da Lat's ubiquitous family- style: two double beds, with prices fluctuating based on the number of people you plan to cram in. The rooms have mosquito nets, snazzy leopard skin blankets, hot showers, cable TV and a phone, and half have balconies overlooking the street below. Seven rooms in the hotel have a shared bathroom. Attached is the disturbingly musty yet popular Peace Cafe, where breakfast is available, although not included in the room price.

This was a great place to stay. I paid $8 for the night and had no window but at this altitude I didn't need it. The room was clean as was the bathroom. The food in the cafe was tasty and reasonably priced. It's a great place to hang out and I had a good evening here with fellow travellers. We were even left to our own devices after the ladies left for the night. Although it's all about the buck, the ladies were charming and looked after me well.

Great place, great location
Stayed here after initially trying to book the dreams hotel. This place has two locations, basically right down the street from each other. Rooms have two beds, no ac (but you don't need it, trust me), and are all in good condition. Hot water also. Add breakfast for an additional 1$ per person. The Easy Riders hang out in the Peace cafe, which is located below the Peace 1 hotel, and can be extremely annoying and loud, but this is Vietnam. Just smile and say no thank you when you don't want what they have to give you. They just want your business. You are their ticket to food on the table. (There are three different peace cafe's that I have seen in this area so far, this is the one directly below Peace 1 hotel.) The price we paid was 7 dollars, plus another 2 dollars for me and my girlfriend's breakfast in the morning. All in all a great place to stay with a great location

Backpacker Hotspot in Cafe
The breakfast and late afternoon meal are worth going to. Cheap eats and friendly folks. Reminds me of ''Greasy Spoon'' diners with a matronly staff. The folks that eat there are fellow travellers, and of course the price and quality are good. Good travel grub and even wine and beer. The prices are just right.
I know folks that stay at other hostels (''It was near the bus-stop,'' they say) yet they still come to the Peace Cafe (the real one with the 3 ladies and 1 grandma, not Peace Cafe 2 or the one with the Green$ sign) to socialize and buy books (in various languages, too, French and German, I last saw.)
The ladies are impeccably ladies, although they have to take care of themselves and be business-like at times, esp. the morning. Their prices are cut to razor-thin margins, so they can ill-afford to lose a thing. They seem happy and busy, however, and when things die down they love to chat you up and be a bit nosy and curious as most Vietnamese are. Dalat still has a small-town atmosphere.
The cafe is well-frequented by expats and tourists alike. You'll find plenty of travel info on Dalat and surrounding areas chatting up fellow travellers and guides.
Like all places, you will run into the ubiquitous Dalat Easy Rider, who is surprisingly knowledgeable of the terrain and history surrounding hill-forested Dalat. Their rough, cowboy-like manners are typical of most road warriors, but surprisingly they are very intelligent and knowledgeable and friendly if you give them a chance. They are vigilant and always out to help a tourist, even if it means buggering them to death. They are a unique bunch of characters that deserve a break now and again. I like the nice bikes, especially the newer, bigger ones. Those are a big pricier, but what a ride ..
The location is fairly good, if not perfect. It's on a one-way, hilly, winding street Westerners seem to like, not too far from the square and the ''avenue of cafes and a few bars'' on the road to the Peace or (Hoa Bin) Square. They are building a new hotel and supermarket (so I hear) at time of writing 5/2008.
The beds are just as written - and I got a clean bathroom. Clean, safe, and bright.
The Vietnamese name for the Peace Hotel is the ''Khach San Hoa Bin''. Pronounced [ Khaht San Hwa Been ].
