We stayed at the Dalat Palace for three days at the beginning of September. The hotel is situated on top of a hill overlooking the lake--a beautiful spot. The hotel looks like something you would expect from the grand hotels of the past.
The service is excellent, and they always have someone on hand to assist you with whatever you need. The breakfast is wonderful, and you can dine on the terrace with a view of the lake. There are fried eggs on the breakfast buffet, but they will make you any style upon request.
Some previous reviewers complained about the retro-fitted shower that flooded the bathroom. In our room, that problem seemed to have been rectified, as they have put up some partial glass walls around the tub and a floor guard to prevent the water from spreading to the entire bathroom.
Everything in the hotel really is five star, but at times the hotel felt a little big and empty. If you go to Larry's Bar in the basement, you are usually are there alone. I imagine you would dine alone as well, as the set menu was around $75/person. I think the hotel might attract more visitors and feel a little warmer if the prices were lowered somewhat. At around $200/night, I would have a hard time justifying staying here again with so many other affordable choices in Da Lat. That being said, we did have a wonderful time in Da Lat, and our stay here was lovely.
