“Good - Not more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Functional and rather comfortable high ceiling rooms, but not more than that.
Breakfast is served in the restaurant across the street, and was one of the best, by all means, I ate during my three weeks in Vietnam.
I recommend booking a room on an upper floor with a view of the valley: White clouds covering the valley in the early morning is a beautiful scene, as you can see in the attached photos.
Minor issue, and some may see that perhaps as a petty, and for that I apologize in advance: This is one of those hotels who want their guests to help them "save the environment" by not washing the used towels. It always amuses me, because then I remembered that this humble request, that sounds very reasonable, forgets to note that the washing operation, the hotel asks us, courteously, to save him, has already been priced by it when coming to set the price of the room. Just something to think about.
In addition, remember to take your passport after checking-in because the receptionist in this particular hotel tend not to remember to give it back, but rather to deposit it automaticly in a drawer at the reception. Watch out!
Finally, I can not give a high score to hotel where a few seconds of inattention, caused to leave expensive item in the lobby, which vanished as if the earth had swallowed it up a few seconds later.

We stayed here for two nights as part of a small group. The hotel looks very grand in the old French tradition. Big and bold. It has a quaint old style French elevator. This can be an issue if someone has not closed the door properly on exit as the lift then does not run. The rooms are pretty small and certainly smaller than others we have stayed in around Vietnam. We had a supposed double room with two narrow single beds and not much room for cases etc. Breakfast is over the road. This is excellent with a good selection and very well cooked eggs. So no real problems. We slept well. It is around 30 mins walk from the main shopping area. No real choice of eating places nearby apart from the hotel restaurant over the road. I would look around a bit more before deciding whether to come back here again or not.

Upon arrival the hotel is spectacular. Beautiful building with amazing lobby. Staff were friendly and helpful enough. Room was far enough away from the noisy street at the back of the building which was a good location. Not to mention the good views from the window. The room itself needed a good clean. The walls were filthy and chairs and furniture could do with a clean/ dust.

Bed not comfortable and the mentioned 'flat screen tvs' are 15 yr old boxes which drop in and out of reception. Only one free power point in the room wasn't good enough and had lots of trouble getting plugs into sockets. Staff were good enough to provide an adaptor. It seems its a common problem.

Breakfast at the restaurant across the road was great. A good spread and plenty for all tastes. The restaurant, however is incredibly over priced for all its other food.

I wouldn't return to the hotel- the room standard would be fine if backpacking (although probably not within budget). For a 4 star hotel I expect cleanliness and a comfortable bed.

Stayed there with some friends for two nights in August 2012. The Hotel is good value for money, very nice rooms and well located. But the service leaves much to be desired. Some luggage left with the concierge was broken into and searched. When it was reported to the Management, no action to assist or to investigate this crime was initiated. It was like such things are normal in this hotel. Come to think of it, we were warned when depositing the luggage with concierge to make sure that no valuables are in the bags.

Having read reviews on here we decided to stay at du parc. The reviews were accurate and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is good value for money and with the palace across the road you can always upgrade for afternoon tea or dinner-it really is palace like!...the rooms were very nice-aircon not needed. Only draw back for us was the smoking in the reception area and the noise of some of the guests with small kids. I would advise booking a room on a higher floor and request non smoking floor. The breakfast across the road was good and it was no trouble to pop across in the morning. We loved Dalat....well worth the de-tour from the coast

Room Tip: Higher floor to avoid smokers /ground floor noise

It's a reasonably nice, well located hotel, with well priced daily room rates. The staff are great, and the the decor tasteful (unlike a lot of other things in Da Lat).

The room we had was clean, albeit rather small. Air conditioning isn't available, but isn't really needed in Da Lat. Our room faced the street, and consequently, road noise, music, and general chatter from the street weren't shut out, so it wasn't the easiest place to sleep.

Watch out for the extras on this hotel - prices are outrageous. Minibar prices are steep, as is laundry, breakfast (VND150,000 per person), and airport transfers (VND180,000 per person for a minibus). The latter two items you can get for a fraction of what this hotel charge, and finding the cheaper options isn't hard. If you really must get private transport to and from the airport, a taxi fare is significantly cheaper than the hotel's transfer if there is two or more of you in your group.

I am not sure I would recommend this place, but I certainly have had much worse service in Da Lat and in Vietnam.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the street. Booking directly with the hotel also gets breakfast thrown i...

My husband and I stayed here for a few days in June.
Pros:
-good location
-cooler temps were a nice change
Cons:
-rooms are small, dirty, noisy and stuffy - I realize A/C isn't the norm in Dalat but a fan would have been nice
-hot water was hit or miss
-breakfast buffet across the street was not impressive

In short, the hotel is in need of an upgrade, and I would not stay here again.
