The guy says oh "no hot water today... the hotel was not busy enough so we didn't bother turning the water heater on... 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 recently stayed five nights at this hotel when we visited the mountain region of Sapa in Vietnam . 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

This place has good views, comfortable beds, hot water and heated blankets but I could see from my bed a cobweb and a lot of humidity at the walls. The staff is very rude and they are always at the bar playing cards. I asked for a map and they didn't have, I asked for milk and they answered me... More

We stayed at the Mountain View as part of the Gecko tour. It is so cold that the staff wear jumpers and coats to serve you, the rooms do not have heating and are so cold that you can see your breath and the only way to keep warm is to stay in bed. The only choice of food is... More

Stayed with group of 14 people. Staff were super helpful & friendly. Ate each day lunch @ dinner in the hotel as food was so good. Rooms are cool but extra blankets & electric blankets are provided ( we travelled there in the winter - take warm clothing). Views out of the window were beautiful when it wasn't misty. Provide...
