This is a relatively small hotel. Quiet. Great location overlooking the lake. Decent but not extraordinary breakfast. Room is clean & well appointed. Comfortable. I think we stayed in the same room David N referred to: rather tricky to open the door. Agree, many hotels and restaurants in Vietnam still don't seem to offer non-smoking facilities. This may seem fussy,... More

We arrived late on a bus and went to the first hotel name we saw in Lonely Planet. We paid US$40/night. This is far from being the worst hotel in the world but just a little effort would make this a superb place to stay. As it stands, this hotel is mediocre at best. The pros:- Great location near the... More

My wife & I spent 3 nights at this hotel picked because of its quiet location overlooking the lake. It was generally rundown and had seen better days. We were taken to the nearest room to reception. It was musty and the key did not work. Reception opened the door but we could not, called him back where the trick... More

This hotel must have seen much better times some decades ago. In line with the lack of maintenance the cleaning was below average and not in line with the rating listed. Hot water in the bathroom was a matter of luck. The very fresh climate of this hilly location was not catered for adequately and the night was freezing cold.... More

After reading a lot of other reviews, I was hesitant to stay here but decided to book the first three days of our two week stay in DaLat at the Empress. I was pleasantly surprised at the hotel. Though it is older, the rooms were clean and appointed very nicely. The bathrooms were nice and there was unlimited hot water... More

Best things about this hotel? Location at the lake: near to good restaurants ( especially the V Cafe): good-sized and reasonably comfortable room. Otherwise a tired place which must have been attractive in its time but now shows little sign of investment in upkeep. Fridge in our room did not work and was not fixed over three days despite several... More

This was a very fancy, but tired, hotel. Beautiful position overlooking the lake, but the steps and ramp up and down from the road made it a nightmare for our tired knees. The room was average clean, but not bad all things considered. Great shower. The courtyard, which could be beautiful, was very run down and unloved. A lot of... More

The lake is beautiful and the promo pictures look great. The price for this hotel is relatively expensive when compared to others in the same district. The pictures are actually misleading. The grounds and hotel look like someone hasn't done much maintenance for a very long time. Doors rattle, shower door hard to open, mould all around the inside of... More

Stayed here for two nights (unfortunately) Definitely never again. A great location spoiled by a very poor hotel. Tired, needs cleaning properly and forget about the breakfast; there were four of us and we asked for glasses for juice and was brought ONE glass. Asked for butter and was totally ignored. Best thing to do is find somewhere else to... More
