I was surprised to see the photos on this site because they don't reflect the stay we had at the Mountain View. We arrived early in the morning and we told that our rooms weren't ready yet. They weren't joking! As it turns out, the entire hotel was being refurbished and we would be the first to stay in the... More

Room was clean. Breakfast buffet was kind of unpleasant. Loud kareoke bar just outside mountain view window. For a town trying to turn itself into a 100% tourism economy, this will likely improve in the future.

We didn't actually stay here. We were on a tour and being picked up from this location. We arrived early in the morning and our tour guide was not there. The hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming and helped us find out what we needed to do. They couldn't have done enough to help us. The delicious coffee and... More

The staff are very helpful and can arrange treks and transport for you. The food is very good and competitively priced and the Hotel has wifi throughout. However it does get busy and the rooms vary enormously in quality. I was lucky I had excellent rooms on both occasions I stayed at the Hotel. The rooms were clean, spacious and... More

I was extremely tired from all this transiting especially after Songkran! It was a long bus ride from Hanoi to Sapa, the price for the rooms were a bit on the upside of the price range, but at this point I didn't care. The lady brought me to the various rooms available and I picked the one with the best... More

We got a good deal for $10 per night private double room with bathroom , a balcony and a great view. They also had a good deal on what the called the English breakfast it was 60,000 dong ($3) for eggs... More

We ended up at Mountainview by accident, but we ended up quite happy. They allowed four of us to stay in a room for three (saved us paying for an additional room) -- something we very much appreciated! Our room was one of the cleanest we've had in the last month and a half of traveling. On top of that... More

We paid 17 usd for a double room without view. (We asked for it to save some money). The price includes nice breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful. Its not the best deal in sapa but its pretty good value.

Who would have thought that $15 could get such a view! The room was huge and had access to a private balcony (facing the street), though our eyes were locked on the panoramic view of the valley through the huge windows. The bed was an old spring mattress, but certainly servicable. Service was friendly but not chatty. They offer tours,... More
