Cat Cat Twilight Hotel (Blueswan)
Ranked #88 of 157 Sapa B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 April 2013

We had really a bad time at the Cat Cat Twilight Hotel. The room was fine as the view but the staff really tried to rip us off.

First, one of our vietnamese friend book the room for us. She told us the price would be 400 000 dongs for a room for 3. When we arrive, they tried to make us pay 550 000 dongs. That was a bad start. This hotel has clearly a double standards, one price for vietnamese and one price for westerners. My boyfriend has to bargain really hard to finally get the good price.

Second, the owner offered us to book our bus ticket to go back to Hanoi. We first wanted to book it ourselves at the bus station, but he insisted so we just agreed. We specifically asked to have seats NOT at the back of the bus. That's what we got... We were really mad when we realize it and suddenly, his excellent english speaking was gone and he wasn't able to do anything.

Third, we came at 5pm at the hotel for our picked up to the bus station. A really arrogant guy from the staff was just laughing at us when we asked him where was our transportation. He went inside the hotel and came back with a bicycle. That was just really really arrogant and inappropriate. He clearly didn't give a s*** about us.

We are really really disappointed of our experience at Cat Cat Twilight Hotel. The room wasn't cheap, there was a view, but there are plenty of hotel in Sapa with a view. Find another one.

This was a nice place to stay in Sa Pa for a few days. Staff,especially Kein (sp?), who did just about everything,was friendly and helpful. We were there in January,when the temp was close to freezing,and there is no heat,except for poorly designed fireplaces, so t was cold. They did warm up the beds with electric heaters before you got to bed, but you couldn't use the heaters while in bed. It was fun,though, and the food was very good.

We are leaving today this little hotel! We had a twin room with an added bed as we were three! Hotel staff really efficient but you have to be careful with the laundry! We received our laundry back with underwear that weren't ours and when we checked out she wanted to take more money than agree for it... The english levelis very law but ritin front you have a nice terrace where uou can enjoy breakfast or just have a drink! The staff are really friendly!

Stayed there in May 2012 and im quite frankly amazed that this is the first review for this place. It offered amazing views at very reasonable prices, clean and the staff really helped with all our crazy requests when my girlfriend got sick whilst staying there.
