Our double room was spacious and comfortable, with new fittings, clean bathroom, cable tv, minibar, kettle and a big cozy bed. For some reason, although the hotel was far from full due to low season, we were put in room 106 next to the restaurant. Breakfast was served early (6.30-8.30) and noise isolation was minimal. Thus, when the staff preparations didn't wake us in the early hours, the succeeding noise of the hotel guests coming for breakfast ensured there was never enough sleep in the mornings. Avoid rooms 104, 106 and 108 (the latter immediately adjacent to the restaurant).
Noodle breakfast might have been excellent, but I was disappointed with my non-noodle option on both mornings. Instead of an omelette I got sunny side up eggs, which, understandably, could have been due to a language barrier. However, next morning's "bread, butter and jam" included four chewy slices of cold white bread, redeemed only by a tiny amount of tasty local strawberry jam. Having had the popular crispy fresh French baguettes every morning in Vietnam before, the hotel's bread was a let-down. Expect half-clean plates, stained glasses and a cute but smelly kitten that will want to play with you while you eat.
Having spoken to other travellers in Dalat, we realised we were paying about $2-3 more a night. Not worth it, even if you consider that breakfast was included. For the same money I'd stay somewhere else next time.
