I would like to talk about Dalat Palace Heritage Hotel, an upscale hotel in Đà Lạt city which I had the opportunity to visit a couple years ago. Being a big fan of learning about history, I always knew that I had to visit this spectacular place.
As its name suggests, it was built over a hundred years ago in the heart of Đà Lạt city in the Central Highland of Vietnam. The area surrounding the hotel is scenic and culturally rich as there are the solemn Đà Lạt cathedral and numerous petit cafes and bars. My first impression about this place was that the building itself was grand and majestic.
The interior of the hotel was decorated elegantly and luxuriously with vintage furniture and old European paintings throughout its halls and corridors. The room that I stayed in was even furnished with a pair of Art deco armchairs and a rotary phone on top of the bedside table. From the window of my room, I could see the romantically tranquil Xuân Hương lake.
Above all, what I enjoyed the most about this place was the clever design that integrated the old and new ways of life. Besides the vintage features, other modern amenities such as Wifi, a modern gym and even a karaoke room could also be found here. When I was there I joined a group of people and we sang in the Karaoke room until midnight. I think that this blend of past and present is what makes Dalat Palace stand out.

I consider myself an avid traveler, having explored various destinations in Vietnam and gaining diverse experiences while staying in different hotels. I’d like to share my recent encounter with a particularly remarkable hotel.
To kick things off, I embarked on a journey to Da Nang last month and selected this hotel as my place of residence during my holiday. My decision was influenced by a friend who had previously enjoyed an exceptional stay there.
In terms of location, this hotel boasts an ideal setting. It strikes a perfect balance, being in close proximity to downtown while providing just the right amount of distance to escape the city’s hustle and bustle. Additionally, its prime position right by the beach was a great advantage, especially since I enjoy swimming during my vacations.
This establishment is a 5-star hotel with a standout feature its distinctive architectural design resembling a lotus flower. My room was both spacious and well-appointed, boasting modern furnishings and amenities that contributed to my overall sense of comfort and convenience.
However, what truly sets this hotel apart is its crown jewel the largest infinity pool in Vietnam. This impressive amenity is accessible to hotel guests without any additional charges. I devoted a substantial amount of my time to swimming and basking in the pool’s allure during my stay. In my opinion, this hotel certainly deserves a well-earned 5-star rating, and I wholeheartedly intend to choose it as my accommodation for my next visit to Da Nang.
2. Sample IELTS Speaking part 3: Hotel
2.1. What can influence people’s choices of hotels?
From my perspective, when choosing a hotel, people’s decisions are influenced by three factors. Travelers’ top concern is typically related to the cost. Some travelers merely seek basic lodging with a tidy room and a strong wifi signal, whereas others would rather stay in a luxurious setting.
The hotel’s location, namely whether it is close to the travelers’ travel destinations, is another thing I’d like to bring up. People who live close to popular destinations can reduce their commuting expenses and use their money for other things like festivals or meals.
- Basic lodging: chỗ ở cơ bản
- Bring up (v): nói tới
- Commuting expenses: chi phí đi lại
2.2. Do the ratings of people influence their choice?
Yes. These days, before booking a room, guests look at the hotel’s rating and reviews. Since people characterize the positive and negative aspects of a location, but management always emphasizes the positive aspects, people who have already stayed at a hotel can define it better than hotel management.
- Characterize (v): có góc nhìn riêng biệt
- Emphasize (v): nhấn mạnh, đề cao
2.3. How do people reserve hotel rooms?
Most of the time, whether someone books a hotel stay in person or online, they will need to pay a deposit. The down payment typically ranges from 20 to 30 percent of the entire cost. Additionally, before a week of their stay, visitors frequently must pay the full amount or risk having their reservation canceled.
- Deposit (n): khoản tiền đặt cọc
2.4. How do people book hotels these days?
To assure availability, most people reserve hotel rooms a few days in advance. Hotel rooms can be reserved online through the hotel’s website or through independent websites like Goibibo or Make My Trip. Since internet facilities and services have significantly improved recently, fewer individuals are now booking hotels immediately upon arrival.
- Assure (v): chắc chắn
- In advance: trước
2.5. What is the difference between the hotels in your country and those abroad?
The attire worn by the receptionists is one thing to take into account. I don’t notice many differences among the male employees because they all wear a jacket over their shirt, a tie around their necks, and traditional pants. While the workers in other nations also choose formal clothing, exactly like their male counterparts, Vietnamese receptionists are more likely to wear the traditional costume of our country, the ao dai.
- Attire (n): trang phục
- Receptionist (n): người làm lễ tân
- Take into account (v): xem xét đến
- Counterpart (n): đối tác
