Hotel is quite okay, it is reasonable clean and our room had a really nice view. It is not really cheap nor luxury. Breakfast is okay but not that much. Location is really central although the way up is a bit dark by night but never felt unsafe. Staf is friendly.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Fansipan in May 2014. The host was a laugh a minute and really keen to make our stay enjoyable. Would highly recommend it if you want comfortable, clean, tidy, friendly accommodation in Sapa. We'd definitely stay there again if we go back. Our view was amazing over the city/mountains and surprisingly, the bed... More

We stayed at this hotel in mid-January knowing it's not the ideal time to visit Sapa. The hotel is very central, and has a great heating system which was required. Pros: Good English speaking staff member Twin who was very helpful. A great view if it's a clear day from the rooms at the front of the hotel, clean, hot... More

We found them in the center of Sa Pa, hidden in an upstairs of the central park. Staff was really friendly and the room was clean and huge. Big and comfortable bed with warm blankets. A/C was necessary with the cold we found!

This is an example of an establishment that, in a town run purely by the funds of tourism; now takes this money for granted. Management are only interested in your payment and the overall turnover of first-time Sapa tourists that likely will only ever visit once. I was traveling with a friend and booked and paid for a Superior twin... More

Lovely clean warm room, great shower, soft comfy bed, friendly staff. We had a lovely stay here during our trekking of Sapa. The restaurant downstairs is also awesome - recommend the hot pot! We would definitely stay again.

This was a welcome relief after the overnight train. With great views and the most lovely friendly staff I would highly recommend this place when you are looking for a place to stay in Sapa. We were there for 2 nights my friend and I had a lovely twin room which was great to be warm from the cold Sapa... More

The hotel is placed about 30 steps up a small alley. Very authentic placement and does not look like much. Rooms were what there could be expected for the amount payed but we were very grateful for the service and the attention given to us. We were only staying for 1 night - 2 days and they were were enthusiastic... More

I stayed one night at the Fansipan View and was delighted to find that I was just next to Victoria Hotel (the best hotel in Sapa) and paying far less for it. My room was very spacious with view of the mountains. It has a King bed which is very comfortable. After an overnight train ride, I slept for 9... More
