“Near the end of the world”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

This is an older wooden hotel built like a Thai stilt house. Not impressive looking from the street but once inside the courtyard the hotel started to put on the charm. The hotel...not the staff. It took us ten minutes to find a living soul to get us checked in. Expecting guests is not on their priority list. But the town/hotel is at the end of 62K of extremely bad road and still 100K from Sapa. So any guests are a surprise. But the room was very large (#104), super clean, and the decor of wood and stone was charming. The mosquito screened bed was huge. However, I am convicted that the mattress was constructed out of teak wood! In our last month of traveling, I have never felt a harder bed. We persevered.

Breakfast, included, also took the staff by surprise. But once they got up to speed it was very good and got the day started.

I would recommend the hotel but there is almost nothing else to choose from anyway!

Room Tip: We had a deluxe room. But I'm not sure there was much to choose from anyway.

Thankfully about to be demolished. It is the only hotel in area, so change your trip plans to pass through without stopping, but whole valley will be flooded very soon anyway.
We had to step over rubbish to get to room which was coated with several millimetres of dust, to find aircon removed and bathroom and towels particularly filthy.
Staff did not care.
Mattress old and spongey.
Possibly worst hotel ever, even in Vietnam terms and even if only for next month or so.
Surrounded by town in almost complete state of demolition on end of 4wd track at best.
