The staff was super nice and let us check in at 9am since we had just gotten off the train. The room was clean and had the nicest bathroom I've experienced in Asia. We had the banana creeps for the free breakfast and they're quite tasty. Definitely would recommend to friends or stay here again if I ever make it... More

We stayed for four nights. our first impression of the room was that it was dark but next morning we realized that it was ok. The room is clean and the staff cleaned every day. They offer a good breakfast with a excellent omelette with mushroom. We paid 20 usd each night.

We changed hotels from the one booked for us (Panorama) that was clean but cold and the staff treated us merely ok, which is different from our other expderiences in Vietnam. We grabbed two of the 5 rooms in le Gecko and were immediately really happy with our choice. The rooms are high ceilinged and classic in a French colonial... More

Nice hotel in Sapa, close to all the main amenities. Rooms are nice and clean. Staff very polite and willing to help. Very nice terrace on the front where you can eat and relax. The restaurant is good.

We stayed at Le Gecko for two nights and it was a great little hotel. The room was clean, big and had a nice view of a little square. Breakfast was very tasty and there were lots of options. The owner was friendly, he did try to promote his Sapa tours on us but once we said no thanks he... More

It is surrounded by many restaurants (the hotel is actually a restaurant with rooms on the second level). Since we were staying at the hotel, we got a discount for lunch and dinner at the restaurant.
