clean place to stay

Review of Dakruco Hotel
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Mar 18, 2014
This is not a bad place to stay. the rooms were spacious and clean and mine had a king sized bed which was a nice change compared to some of the other hotels I have been in here. I was not impressed with the breakfast and as we stayed 5 nights I was able to see that it did not change much. One of the days they had fish in almost very item. Fish soup, fish in tomato sauce, fried rice with fish and more. I like fish as much as the next person but when it is in every part of the meal it is a little overwhelming. I mostly stuck with coffee and bread with jam. Dinner was not bad depending on what you got. The buffalo wings are nothing like buffalo wings. They were horribly butchered and several of the pieces were just the wing tip which has no meat on it. They were smothered in a sweet sauce and sautéed onions. The fried beef was better. It had great flavor and the beef was tender. However, there were a few pieces of meat that tasted a little off so I am wondering how fresh the meat was. There were several shops and places to eat within walking distance. If I were to come back to this area I would stay here again.

As another reviewer, our initial impression was good. However, later we realised that this hotel really does need refurbishment. Most of our travelling group complained about the showers, wondering how clean they really were, as well as the pink dressing gowns, many of which had started going yellow as a result of dye running through washing. Our general impression was that it was all a bit "sticky". That said, it is probably the best tourist hotel in the area. We've stayed in a lot worse but glad we were only here for one night. The location of this hotel was very good in terms of access to shops, restaurants, markets, etc.

I have been in this hotel four days for a business trip.
I was not impressed at all ! Everything was very very normal and the only thing they were able to do was an upgrade in a "double room", which actually was: two rooms connected. In reality all additional space was unuseful.
Restaurant is very poor and the breakfast could be better; I would suggest to have more western things such as cakes, croissants, marmalades, espresso coffee, and so on .....
Very good the small massage parlor at the 10th floor.

Our initial views of the hotel were very positive. Large spacious reception, polite staff, and lifts to each of the floors. Our room was a good size, clean and well furnished, with a balcony looking over the city.

Then the little flaws started to appear. The gym had broken equipment, no AC and no drinking water available. The "Roof Top Cafe" mentioned in the hotel guide didn't exist. The bar on the Ground floor was similarly non-existent. To their credit, the reception staff did offer to direct us to a suitable establishment in town where we could get coffee and beer.

Dinner in the first floor restaurant was OK; the beef and chicken were quite tasty and not too tough, and the rice and vegetables were only slightly overlooked. However these weren't the dishes we initially ordered. The hotel had run out of cashews and bananas (grown aplenty in this region) forcing us to go for our second choices from the menu.

All in all not a bad place to stay, it just needs some of the niggles to be ironed out.

The main reason I do not rate this hotel as “very good” is its location, far from city center.
We stayed here for two nights, mid-January 2013. The hotel has two buildings, a small one (three floors) and a tall one. We got room 102 in the small building. That’s a huge room; actually it’s a small apartment. Its only drawback is lack of windows; it is in the center of the floor. It has a small “living room”, a large bed room, kitchen and bath. It is equipment with all necessary amenities, including a kettle and safe box. The bath and hot water supply are fine. Overall, an excellent room.
As for breakfast, in the first day there was a good buffet, as there was a tourist group. In the second day it seems we were the only guests so we got an “egg & bread” breakfast. It was not bad by itself, except that on one understand English and it was difficult to explain what we want. It’s important to mention that the people at the reception also do not understand English…
The location is problematic, far from city center; (more than 2 Km from the tank monument). We walked this distance as we couldn’t find a taxi. There are no restaurants around so you either can have dinner at the hotel or walk to the city center. We were on vacation and consider this walk as part of the fun, but one should be aware to this and take it into account.

I have stayed at Dakruco 3 or 4 times. Actually I could have been the first guest of this hotel 4 years ago, staying there while it was still under construction. I remember the bugs coming through the air con, as it was not yet isolated.

It has not improved much. They have splurged in the room's installations; everything is remotely opperated. Big bed, big room, but the general feeling of a cheap furniture shop. The hotel has several construction design flaws, from poor contractors. But what puts the hotel down is the lack of any kind of character. Like other reviewer wisely points out, it's like an airport by night.
There is also little to do around. No restaurants, cafes, or sightseeing, unless you walk considerably by the main shopless road. I often just go to the nearby coopmart supermarket and take stuff to the room and read there.
The hotel has 2 buildings: 4 and 3 stars. The 3 stars rates at around 25 dollars, and the 4 stars can reach 60 dollars. I feel actually better in the cheap less pretentious one. Restaurant and breakfast are the same place, though. I have never experienced problems with food supply or quality, unless taken in consideration that the place is mostly dead.

However. This is one of the few western-standard rooms to rest in Daklak, which has quite many activities to do, so it provides good rest after excursions. But it is a pity that one of the most charming provinces in Vietnam, Daklak and its national parks, tribes and waterfalls, has as best hotel this concrete block.
