We stayed a few nights recently in this hotel which is now called the Papillion Hotel. Perhaps the name change is not helpful for the local butterflies as we found live butterflies flapping on potted plants, they had been pinned there. The staff were very helpful and friendly, though service was average, the rooms were not cleaned daily and we... More

Chose this hotel as the photographs were appealing. It turned out to be run down with the rooms smelling musty along with the bed and pillows. There was no lighting along the terrace to our room, rain was leaking through the roof into the stairwell and the access areas were very grubby and dirty. Little English was spoken by the... More

We recently stayed at this hotel on our trip to Sapa. During our stay in Vietnam we stayed at hotels in this price range - $30 but this one was below average compared to other hotels. This is a very noisy hotel as there is a karaoke bar behind it that is opened until 2am along with a barking guard... More
