“Crazy House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

It's a small and charming place. Not for living, imho. Only for excursion. There were many tourist groups here.
But you feel as Alise in Wonderland... It was very unusual. It's a Crazy House indeed.
Attention! Dalat is highland town, put your jacket into your bag!

On a recent trip to Vietnam with a group of West Pointers we eventually worked our way to Da Lat, Viet Nam in the central highlands and went to the Crazy House Hotel as it is called for a tour. We stayed at the Sammy Hotel while in Da Lat, and the opinions below are those of some of the individuals who stayed overnight at the Crazy House, they loved it due to the unique idea of such a place. However, if you are prone to having a few libations, it is probably not where you would want to stay. We took a tour and after negotiating some of the walkways, I and my wife and our friends decided that you could end up in the wrong room if you don't know where you are going.

However, the history behind the Hotel was quite interesting. Seems that a Vietnamese lady went to Russia and returned with quite a substantial amount of cash; she was an architect and woke up one morning and decided to do something different; well, she did. I would suggest that you visit Da Lat, Vietnam and see for yourself this very interesting work of art. I was reading the note from Trip Advisers on unique hotels and wondered why the Hang Nga Guesthouse was left out. It is by far the best of the best unique hotels.

I have a lot of photos of this hotel on my Ipad, but would suggest that you look it up on the Web. It is fantastic.

Room Tip: All rooms are unique in there own way so I would suggest that you ask to see the rooms and choose on...

This place was fascinating to visit. We spent the day exploring (getting lost!) through the hotel, admiring the different rooms. However, i couldn't imagine staying here would be quite the same experience.... constant streams of people coming through, not to mention they were quite dirty and didn't appear to have the best security system in place. Check this place out for a day trip though!

Only did the day trip. If you have adventure and fun in your soul then stay the night. I wish I could have stayed. Agree that it was a tad grubby but I've stayed at far dirtier on my travels and nowhere that could be as quirkily rejuvenating as this place. Life should be FUN and this place is exactly that. Loved it to bits!

I stayed in this hotel 2 nights, although 15 years ago. No entrance fee at that time. Seems that the hotel has extended since. A bit a shame it became a kind of tourist attraction, but at that time it was an amazing experience. The room was comfortable.
Maybe intresting to know that the owner is a daughter of a former president of Vietnam

My friend and I had a great time visiting the Crazy House. It is unique and definitely worth a visit. Every corner is interesting and a photographers delight. I'm glad we didn't stay there - we did try but it was booked out. The rooms are small and a tad grubby but I reckon it would have been a good experience to stay there. The only thing with staying there are the amount of people trampling through the place - it is definitely a tourist attraction rather than a place to stay. Dalat is a wonderful place and we stayed in a place up the road from the hospital for US$12 a night which was heaven. Most day trips take you to the Crazy House as part of their programme.

This left me rather speechless. The house is absolutely insane. We didn't stay the night but walked all through the house and every inch of it was something new. Some of the staircases are way up high and give you a great view of the surrounding countryside. All in all if you do visit Dalat make sure you visit.
