This hotel is located in quiet place, so it's good for your sleeping. It takes about 5-10 mins to walk from here to center of town. Quite nice room at reasonable price. I paid 15$ net (not included breakfast) for a comfortable twin room with good-enough facilities, having bath tub, heating fan, fireplace (actually I didn't need to use), always... More

The hotel is charming and nice. Staff is quite friendly. rooms are nice, good warm shower. I think it is a good address in summer time. But in winther-time it is not the best choice: no heating! (5° Celsius in the room), very humid, very poor heating fan for 3 USD per night available, not enough to heat the room... More

The rooms, while large, are disgusting. They are dark and dirty. However, they do have great views (which the staff can't stop talking about). Looks like they've rested on their laurels a bit and depended on the views to keep them going while the hotel has gone downhill. There are much nicer, cheaper, cleaner hotels with great views in Sapa... More
