For a mere US$22 a night, I wasn't expecting anything more than a clean room. But what I got was more than a clean room in a fantastic location. The room came with a flat screen tv with cable channels, desktop PC, free wi-fi and delicious breakfast (You can choose from toast, eggs, pho, etc. You also get fresh fruits, juice, coffee, tea).
However the most unexpected surprise was the service. The hotel staff were really wonderful. We took a cab from the train station at 5am in the morning after a 9 hours train ride and unfortunately ended in a rogue taxi with a rigged meter. My 10 mins taxi ride turned out to be over US$12. Luckily for us, the Charming hotel staff told off the taxi driver and settled the situation for us. We did not even have to pay a cent! The staff told us it was their responsibility to pick us from the train station and it was due to some miscomm between them and the hotel we were staying in Sapa that we had to take a cab. Hence we shouldn't have to pay for the taxi. Isn't that amazing!
