Nice Dream Hotel
Ranked #132 of 329 Da Lat B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 8, 2011

We were recommend to stay at Nice Dreams ( more like nightmare dreams) by tour booking agents Friends Tourist, district 1 HCMC - so don't trust them either - the brochure they showed us looked great. The staff member said it was "very nice". Not true. When we arrived the hotel was full but were told that "we can put you in a special room just for tonight. Special is right. Smoking in the lobby and bedrooms is allowed, our bed was broken, sheets were torn, there's a big gap under the door to the 'sewerpit' balcony so bugs can come straight in. And they did. We had no hot water, and its a little too chilly in Da lat for cold showers at 11.30pm.
We complained and were promised an upstairs rooms, yes it was upstairs but it was little better. When we spoke to the booking agent about our disappointment at their recommendation we were told that "sorry no refund". Unless you're prepared to risk your health and better judgement take our advice and don't stay here and don't trust all booking agencies! So we're cutting our losses and leaving early.
One thing I want to point out is that the staff do try to make things better, and we have no complaint about them, these comments are purely about the hotel of nightmares

We were guided into this hotel by the bus company who dropped us off in Dalat, TM Brother Travel, after the staff came onto the bus and ushered us into the hotel, this was fine as we had nothing booked. We were concerened, however, that they might be fully booked over the weekend (our 3rd night) as it was a public holiday. I was personally assured by the staff member that was the case. No problems there, then. n our second nght we were surprised to bhe told that it was actually booked and we would have to leave in the morning. Imagine, our surprise when we were told that they we would have to leave in the morning due to be fully booked. After we protested we were then told we could have a room but for nearly 3 times the price! The management and staff were extremely unhelpful in the matter and almost mocking in their argument. We really would advise people against staying here. In addition to this bad experience we were constantly hounded to book tours and packages here. Take our advice and don't stay here please!

I misplaced my camera in reception. The staff found it and kept it locked away for me. Extremely honest and friendly staff, Rooms basic but at US$18 per night including cooked breakfast it would be churlish to complain

Our hotel in HCMC booked this place for us as part of a bus trip to Mui Ne and Da Lat, returning to HCMC. We paid $25, which was way overpriced for what we got. The room was large but only superficially clean. When I looked behind the bedboard for an electric outlet I saw a layer of dirt and dustbunnies. Yuck.

This place is a knock-off name on the Dreams Hotel, which we visited to see if they had a room. Unfortunately they were full but we really liked what we saw. The manager said the Nice Dream Hotel had "stolen" their name. They recommended another place down the street which had better rooms for $17. In the end we stayed at the Nice Dream but we wouldn't return. The staff were friendly but the breakfast was very basic and not at all appealing. The bananas and fresh bread were good. The watered-down orange juice (Tang?) and the super-strong bitter tea were not.

When we returned to HCMC our hotel there (Green Suites) apologized for our disappointment and refunded part of our money without being asked. See my review of that hotel for more information.

One last note - another review of the Nice Dream talks about a balcony overlooking a creek. The "creek" in question is actually a concrete ditch that would more properly be termed an "open sewer".

I've stayed in 3 Hotels in Dalat in the past 2 months. This is the best by far. Huge Room with balcony over looking a stream, Lovely window treatment, 2 queen beds, HBO, MAX etc. Big Bathroom, super clean and Quiet too. Price included a great breakfast as well. Good WiFi at 3mbps speed. Staff is friendly and helpfull my entire month's stay. Motorbike available for rental too. Close to everything in town.

I stayed at Nice Dream hotel and had a terrific stay! The room was great value for money. The room was clean, tidy and spacious! The staff were excellent. When I left my washing there they sent it on the bus to Nha Trang. I cant thank them enough!

In all our trip to Vietnam this hotel was the cheapest per night and yet the best room we have had, the rooms are very spacious, cleaned daily, large bathroom, internet access although the internet is slow here so best going to a dedicated cafe if you wish to spend a long time on it. The location is fine and just a 5 min walk to main shops etc, staff were helpful when we had trouble with one of our trips, def recommended
