        Paradise found”

        I'm sure glad we chose Zen Cafe. It's really like staying at a good friend's house. Homely, cozy and wonderful staff. Coupled with the beautiful weather, this is the place if you want to experience a total departure from the madness of Ho Chi Minh. You'd think a small place like this won't have much of a food choice, but you'd be surprised. Apart from the menu which consisted of some German and Vietnamese cuisine, you can practically ask for anything and they'll whip it up for you. Anytime. Rooms (only 10) are huge, clean and everyone facing the beautiful lake. Fittings are top notch. Another highlight are the 4 adorable (and lucky!) dogs and 2 cats running around the place, especially sweet Lotte. If there's one downside, it's that our room is above the kitchen and we got the occasional cooking smell. Not a big deal though. Overall, a great stay, wish we could stay a few more days. Thanks Axel and Ms Tanh. See you soon!

        Pros:Location- very nice scenic place. Good for relaxation. Food quality and price: Both excellent. Staff / Owner - Both polite and helpful Cons - extra charge - Was charged for #6 towels "as washing machine was not able to clean". found it surprising as have never faced this issue in any other hotel/resort that I stayed. Will definitely recommend for everyone to stay and enjoy this place.

The bathroom was fantastic - big with excellent water pressure. The staff were really helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.

        Room facilities are very good and clean. Quiet, peaceful place for reading some books. Hotel food is disappointment except sausage but there is a small, cheap but good restaurant nearby (Thuy Duong quan). It’s better if you don’t have to go outside twice aday for meals.

        Very clean and well furnished, the staff was most helpful. The only potential drawback is the distance from Dalat city. It’s location precludes walking to restaurants or bars. If one has transportation it is not an issue but for the guest who arrive by public transportation of any type it is either make it a destination and forgo Dalat or depend on taxis.

        Like the place... peaceful... surprisingly nice - actual images found in the web does not justify the room... its nicer in real life... Owner was nice and accommodating... only concern is its really quite hidden and remote so may not be ideal for those who wants to be mobile and quick access to tourist spots.. but if u are looking for a quiet time, this is the place to go!

        Zen Cafe Lakeside is absolutely beautiful. The room is so gorgeous and the view is amazing. Love everything here and there is nothing to fault. The owners Axel and Mai are so friendly and helpful and a fountain of knowledge with what to do in the area. We arranged an airport pick up which made things easy and the driver was lovely and spoke great english. We also hired a bike and it was easy to navigate around the sites of Dalat. Top marks and Zen Cafe deserves all of the good reviews. Thanks Axel and Mai for making this a great stay.

        Peaceful escape”

        Zen Cafe Lakeside was an amazing retreat. It is about 15 min taxi out of Da Lat town by taxi located on a remote lake with very few neighbours. It is quiet and peaceful and the staff are all great. The manager is German and speaks English and was happy to chat and provide information. This also means there is some good german food and beers. The staff were all relaxed and available to help. The TV's were hooked up to the internet which made for some good binge watching online. This place is perfect if you want to get away and enjoy some peace and quiet. Rooms were clean and spacious with great views over the lake.

        That is suitable for guys who want to find a quite environment to live. Flowers are beautiful and wild. View is great to see Tuyen Lam lake. Staff is friendly although I didn't have time to talk much. This place is really far from the center and the road is not good to travel on night. Rest room should be cleaned better. For food, it should have soup and should change more frequently. Also you try Vietnamese food at Dao Nguyen restaurant near here. My family had a great trip here and surely we will come back soon.

        Best honeymoon location!”

        Pros: If you are looking for a secluded place to relax, this is the best bet! Hotel is overlooking the lake! Food in the cafe is soooo good! (pasta is the best!) Cons: The only cheap way to tour Dalat is via motorbike (you drive it yourself) If youare willing to shell out some money, they have a tour guide / driver (Kia Rio car) worth $55 from 8 AM to 5 PM.

        Heaven on Earth”

        location though far from dalat city center (11km away) was just perfect for those looking to destress. rooms were just too dreamy and spacious with forest and lake view. downside was bed (a little bit uncomfortable, woke up with a bad back) and the tiny pillows that goes with it. really good value for money. strongly suggest to get a bottle of dalat produced wine and just stay in the room or out on the terrace.
