We booked two superior rooms here and were delighted to be told on check-in that we had been upgraded to two suites. These were extremely comfortable - our room had a separate sitting area and a powder room in addition to the main ensuite bathroom and the other had a larger sitting room with a small dining area. The old "cage" lift has a lot of character and can be a bit temperamental if you don't follow the instructions to the letter, but the staff were on-the-ball and made sure it cooperated. It was also not too much of a climb on the grand old staircase to our third floor room so we opted for the stairs most of the time.
Breakfast at the Cafe de la Poste was very good - watching the omelette-maker was mesmerising! - and our New Year's Eve dinner there was superb.
We were leaving on an early-evening flight and had arranged to leave our luggage at the hotel after the noon check-out. As we were checking out, we were offered the use of one of the two suites until we were due to leave. An unexpected and thoughtful touch, as there is not much to be said for trudging around for the sake of it! The staff had also noticed that it was my partner's birthday and they presented him with a cake. Plates and cutlery were delivered to the suite so we could have a post-check-out afternoon tea.
Staying in Da Lat is always a refreshing break from the warm south, and I think I've found the perfect oasis within an oasis to keep coming back to.
