well, you haven't said which train, which carriage, which type of cabin or which hotel, so, it's all depending on those things.

for example, a return trip on the King Express in the 2 berth vip cabin (deluxe) cost us approx $110 pp a year ago.

Check Handspan Travel, we used them for our trip to Sapa and it worked out well. We paid a bit over $200.00 per person, but we stayed at the lovely Topas Ecolodge for 2 nights (plus a night each way on the train)for a total of 4 nights. One night with a home stay would be mucher cheaper. Remember when you are quoteed 3 nights, that 2 of those nights are spent on the overnight train. Add another night in Sapa (or surrounding area) You won't regret it.
