Until I saw these other reviews I'd forgotten we stayed here in 2011 and by reading the reviews nothing has changed ,still bad service and the breakfast well, I'd rather not go there. The only thing I can say is the Hotel is situated in a nice location overlooking the Lake. If your not Korean don't stay here .

Well, gosh, my stay at the North Star Hotel in Sapa, Vietnam, wasn't particularly pleasant. The hotel itself has an institutional feeling - all corridors. There is no wifi, nor internet connectivity in the rooms, although wifi is available in the lobby, where there was a small desk with one computer (presumably for lobby-level connection to the internet). My room... More

During a two week organised trip from north to south Vietnam in March 2012, this one was the worst hotel of the trip (and our hotels were always three stars). The only good thing was the size of the room and the breakfast. However, the room and the hotel in general were very cold and also noisy. I do not... More

We arrived here after staying at a 3 star hotel in Tam Duong which we couldnt wait to leave. There is a remarkable difference between 3 star hotels we have found since travelling from the south 2 weeks ago. When choosing 3 star we expect clean & comfortable and not a lot else but many fall well below that standard... More

We travelled from South to North Vietnam over 3 weeks during September 2011. All but one of the hotels were supposedly 3 star delux rooms. However, the difference from best to worst was huge. The North star was damp and cold with black mold on the bedroom ceiling and water stains on the carpets in the hallway. There were dead... More

Only comment would be that the breakfast could have been a bit better. The staffs ware friendly and helpful on the whole. We had great time and could not report any thing. Room was clean, lovely and quite large, the shower was hot and powerful, the wifi was really excellent. North Star Hotel is very good budget hotel, it doesn't... More
