“Not for English speakers”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We had a room with a "Mountain View" that was just a view of other buildings undergoing construction. It was also quite loud, with kids running around the hallways screaming for hours. Location is also inconvenient — it's a 10 min walk to town.

The staff was helpful in arranging us a room with air conditioning after we discovered that our room didn't have it, but they speak minimal English. At one point we had asked a question, then sat nearby waiting for 20 minutes while we thought the receptionist was processing our request, but it turned out she hadn't understood us in the slightest.

The fact that a few of the restaurants in the area around the hotel refused to seat us suggested that this hotel/location may be better suited for Vietnamese rather than tourists.

We booked into this hotel after a bad experience at a cheaper place around the corner.
This hotel is fantastic. The rooms are large and new with the most comfortable bed we experienced in Vietnam. The staff are very friendly and helpful.the breakfast is average but tasty.
We found the location very good and didn't mind the 10 minute walk along the lake to get into the heart of Sapa.
We can highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Air conditioned rooms are available so depending on the weather you might need to consider this

Good location, good sized room, staff were friendly. Some negatives: the room was poorly heated by an on and off again heater. It was so cold that I could see my breath condensing in the room. The shower alternated between hot and cold, rather than warm. Breakfast was average in terms of choice and quality. Before booking this hotel in winter, I would make sure that the heating was up to standard, as Sapa is very cold in winter.

Not only is the hotel beautiful and clean, the staff goes above and beyond to make sure your entire trip is a pleasant one. This is definitely the hotel I would stay at if I were to visit Sapa again. It had the look of being recently renovated when we stayed in December 2013 and they did a remarkable job.

This is a nice friendly hotel on the one way road into Sapa from Ca Lao. It overlooks the sports ground to the East of Sapa lake. It's a pleasant 10 minute walk into town along a good pavement fronting the lake.In December it was offering very competitive package rates including train/bus/B&B,bus & train using Livitrans.
If you are on a very short tour the time lost walking to/from town can be tedious though you could take a motor bike or taxi. For short trip best stay in town centre.
Room was large & clean though bathroom ceiling was leaking. Heating was really needed and was switched off more than it was on. Room felt cold and damp as did bedding.Reasonable breakfast provided. International TV (No BBC). 2 internet stations in Lobby
Reception are friendly and english speaking.
Very steep stair up into hotel.
Recommended but try to get best deal possible due to location.

This relatively new hotel is a little away from the heart of Sapa town centre (about 5 minutes' walk) and located near the Sapa lake. For this reason, it is away from the main traffic and generally a bit quieter than most of the hotels that are located downtown. The friendly daytime front office lady speaks good English and was very helpful in arranging tours and transportation, but the other staff speaks little or no English. I had a mountain view room on the 3rd floor but it was only a very limited view. The room was very clean and large with one queen bed and one single bed. There is no a/c in my room (just a small electric ventilator-type fan, but the temperature was cool during my stay so it wasn't an issue. I think each room either has a shower cubicle or a bath tub with a shower head. My room has the latter but no shower curtain so some skill was required in order not to drench the whole bathroom when I took a shower! The room also faces a volleyball court which becomes noisy at night until about 10 p.m., and there can also be noise from a karaoke bar (not sure whether it is from the hotel or somewhere nearby) which can go on until quite late in the evening.

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms faces a volleyball court which could get very noisy at night. Try get a room fa...

it was nice weekend trip to Sapa. Hotel is little bit away from town center. But it is a quiet place - good for rest after all day trekking. Friendly and ready to help with any issue stuff. There is restaurant in hotel. We had breakfast and lunch there - meals were good. We were very satisfied for our choice of this hotel.
