We stayed 3 nights at Le Gecko and very much enjoyed it. Whilst the weather was dismal, the restaurant/bar was very cosy, and attractive. The rooms are good value, and probably the most comfortable beds we experienced in Vietnam. Water was always hot and pressure was fine. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and the food was pretty good. Whilst not cheap, the excellent French wine by the glass was a welcome added bonus! The only negative was that we had to shift rooms on the last night as we booked an extra night, and the pillows in that room were hard and thin. The manager said he would replace with the same very comfy ones we'd had the previous two nights. Small point, but important if sleep is somewhat pillow-dependant. We very much enjoyed staying in Sapa, despite heavy fog each day. Wandering into the local market was great- chatting with the local tribe women (who turned out to be very playful, and lots of fun, once we got past the incessant "you buy from me!" spiel), and eating Pho Bo at the market with the locals for lunch... lovely experiences. But back to the hotel - we highly recommend it, and thanks to the manager and staff, who made our stay so enjoyable!
