My wife, 3 year old daughter, niece, and myself spent 6 days here in July. We go to Dalat every year and this was the first time we stayed here. We usually stay at the Ngoc Lan hotel but we wanted to try a different hotel this year.
The Saigon Dalat hotel offers air-conditioned rooms and they have a lovey picture of a pool on their website. I say picture because when we got there, the pool was boarded up. It turns out that it's not available year round. Being that it was in late July, I don't understand why it wasn't ready for use. I saw them removing the board on our 2nd day there and asked when the pool will be ready, she told me "tomorrow". 5 days later as we left, it was still closed.
Our suite was large and the bed was big. Very comfortable. The living room was dark, there were no windows. No wifi but there was a DSL cable that you could use for free of charge. You will have to fiddle with your DNS settings to get Facebook. Facebook is blocked in Vietnam but some hotels bypass the block for you. The location of the hotel is a good 10-15 minute walk from the main strip of Dalat. We had a car with a driver so it was not a problem. The buffet was O.K. They had a couple of Vietnamese dishes that rotated every other day and the same bacon, eggs, sausage deal. So if you were staying for a long period, eat out.
Overall, we did enjoy our stay at the Saigon Dalat but the kids were really disappointed with the pool situation. One of the main reasons we tried this hotel was because of the indoor pool. We will probably go back to the Ngoc Lan Hotel next year. The location is better and the buffet is better but no air conditioner.
