We moved to this place after being dissatisfied with the Ngan Nga Bac Ha Hotel at 133 (there are two). I'd recommend that you either call ahead, email or show up and negotiate as the prices listed on Agoda and other booking sites are quite inflated. We paid 400,000 dong for our room with breakfast included. Normal price is about... More

Pleasant, clean, simple accommodation overlooking market area good base for exploring the area. Like all local Vietnamese hotel beds it was hard by European standards. Our room at the back was very quiet. As it was a chilly evening we were asked if we would like the room warmed but the air conditioning didn't work properly and was noisy. Very... More

Checked in for one night in a room with large windows overlooking the town with a large comfortable bed. Unfortunately air conditioner didn't work so we had to move rooms and were given a room on the same level at the front of the hotel. Although the room was cooler the bed was rock hard. They must have different beds... More

This hotel covers all your basic needs at this remote location. It has central location, spotlessly clean rooms, decent breakfast (mostly continental European) and adequate travel services. You don't really expext any luxory there, do you ?

For what it is (a stopover for a night or two while visiting the Bac Ha market) it's doable. Though the rooms are VERY basic, the AC works fine, and there's ample hot water and good water pressure (thus, the 3 star rating, rather than 2). Ask for a back room with floor to ceiling window and a market view.... More

We spent one night here on way though. The room was spacious, bed hard (we did find one bed in northern Viet Nam that was not hard!), air cond worked, wi fi OK, clean, incredible window with view BUT it faces east so be aware that you will be woken early and the room becomes unbearably hot by 8.00 am...

This hotel is very basic but probably dose not advertise as anything else - the rooms were clean but the beds were hard and breakfast very poor. We had a pre-paid voucher for this hotel and if it hadn't been for our guide we would have ended up having to pay the hotel again as they refused to accept that... More

We stayed here on a tour with our guide. I had read some negative reviews so it was a relief to see that the rooms were basic but clean and certainly not bad or noisy. We had rooms at the back side and it was much beter than the front (noise from the street). Bathroom is a bit old but... More

We chose BacHa instead of Sapa. It was a great way to see a hilltribe town. Very quiet. Except on Sundays Market day.This hotel was comfortable and inexpensive.We loved the friendly old man that welcomed us with tea and pipes every time we saw him... Very Local...

There are not a lot of hotels in Bac Ha, and I found Congfu is worth the money. 20$ for room without breakfast and 25$ with breakfast for 2 persons. The dinner was delicious (not that I expected to be honest). Room is big and clean enough, very basic. The bathroom shower head located at weird places compare to where... More
