I arrived on Saturday morning after a nine hour journey on a train and two hours on a bus was glad to be anywhere. Manager very pleasant and changed my room from the fourth floor to the first as I could not get up the stairs. Meals were well prepared and generous. The views were spectacular with the mist covering... More

Comfortable bed, beautiful view, complimentary drinks, free Internet access and hepful staff. The weather in Sapa was so amazing, you would be covered by sudden fag and couldn’t see anything for a while even someone was beside you. Climbed... More

Do not use this place. It is old and dirty. Location is not great either.

This hotel was recommended to us by our hotel staff in Hanoi, but in the end we found out it is not really new, comfortable, clean. The only good thing was food, tasty and generous portions. The rooms for me were bit disgusting, you could smell cat extrements, bathroom was dirty and falling apart. Fortunately we spend there only 1... More

Our stay at Sapa Goldsea hotel was very disappointing. The rooms were not clean, The linen did not appear to be clean, and there was a damp musty smell everywhere. The beds were the hardest we had ever slept on, and the room did not have a shower that worked effectively. We had arrived on the overnight train, so needed... More

I stayed at this hotel as it was part of a tour I arranged through Ethnic Travel in Hanoi. It pains me to complain about the hotel as I found the staff very helpful and the room was fine. But all the agents in Hanoi get the hotels to arrange the tours and we were supposed to spend 1 day... More

We booked a tour through APT Travel in Hanoi for a 3 day trip to Sa Pa and were assigned to the Goldsea Hotel. In short, the hotel was horrible. It started that everything in the hotel was cold and clammy, even though it was decent weather outside for February (probably around 15 degrees). In the restaurant and in the... More
