Describe a hotel that you know.
You should say:
where this hotel is
what this hotel looks like
what facilities this hotel has
and explain whether you think this is a nice hotel to stay in.
I would like to tell you about Dalat Palace Heritage Hotel, one of the best hotels I have stayed in recently. It is located right in the heart of Dalat, within a 15-minute drive of Tuyen Lam Lake and Datanla Falls. This hotel is also a famous tourist attraction with a unique architectural style.
I stayed at this hotel about a few weeks ago when my friends and I were visiting Da Lat city, an ideal retreat destination for travelers looking to escape from the busy cityscape. We chose this hotel because it provided us with complimentary transportation to visit other spots nearby.
Set in a private park with rows of pine trees and well-groomed flower beds, the surrounding poetic area of the hotel was perfect for those who wanted to immerse themselves in the tranquil atmosphere of forests. Known as the most popular accommodation among foreign visitors, the hotel featured a wide range of amenities including a restaurant, a spa, free Wi-Fi and many high-class sports facilities. Every room in this hotel was elegantly decorated in classic French design, with a lot of beautiful paintings on the wall. The room we were staying in even overlooked a picturesque lake.
I really love the experience we had at Dalat Palace Heritage Hotel. Its beauty and excellent service helped me ease my mind and enjoy our trip even more.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
Topic 1: Staying in hotels
1. What things are important when people are choosing a hotel?
I think the location should be the first priority when it comes to choosing a hotel to ensure a comfortable stay. I would suggest looking for hotels that are centrally located so that you can move around freely and conveniently. Besides, it is a great idea to check the price and read different reviews from experienced travellers.
2. Why do some people not like staying in hotels?
Well, there are quite many reasons for this. In my view, the most common reason is the noisy atmosphere. Noises from guests in the next room or footsteps in the hallway can drive people crazy, especially introverts. Besides, some young people prefer cheap and friendly homestays rather than expensive hotel rooms.
3. Do you think staying in a luxury hotel is a waste of money?
Well, I suppose it depends on the travellers’ budget and also which part of the world they are travelling to. In some Asian countries, you do not have to pay a fortune to stay in a 5-star hotel. Personally, I rarely choose to stay in a luxury hotel as most average ones can provide all the amenities I need.
the first priority (n): sự ưu tiên
ensure a comfortable stay: đảm bảo một trải nghiệm thoải mái khi ở khách sạn
conveniently (adv): một cách thuận tiện
experienced travellers (n): những người có kinh nghiệm đi du lịch
drive people crazy: làm người ta phát bực, phát điên lên
introvert (n): người hướng nội
pay a fortune: trả một khoảng tiền lớn
average hotel (n): khách sạn tầm trung
Topic 2: Working in a hotel
1. Do you think hotel work is a good career for life?
Almost certainly. I think youngsters can have many potential paths to choose from when working in the hospitality industry. They can encounter people from all walks of life and learn a lot of things under one roof.
2. How does working in a big hotel compare with working in a small hotel?
Obviously, when working in a big hotel, people may have to face more pressure and responsibility, but of course, the compensation and benefit package will be more generous. However, for those who thrive on variety, working in a small hotel can be a good chance to perform many different roles.
3. What skills are needed to be a successful hotel manager?
I suppose a successful hotel manager should be a resourceful person who can solve problems quickly and efficiently because they may receive a lot of different requests as well as complaints from guests. In addition, a good manager should be considerate enough to understand the guests’ needs and willingly do their best to support them.
potential paths: những hướng đi tiềm năng
hospitality industry: các ngành dịch vụ khách sạn – nhà hàng
people from all walks of life: nhiều loại người khác nhau
under one roof: ở cùng một nơi
compensation (n): thù lao, tiền bồi thường
benefit package: gói phúc lợi
