So this was a welcome surprise along our travels - A lovely family run hotel, with no sales pitch at every encounter! We arrived at 5 am and everyone was asleep but they woke up and took care of us as best they could. At about 10 am our room was ready and it was nice and warm, clean, spacious and a nice view of the mountains. Vu and his family really were lovely - a pleasant change from all the pushy sales hotels we had been in all over Vietnam. They even helped me calling embassy's and airports when I had a problem with my passport. They started to celebrate New Year while we were there and invited us to a lovely banquet with lost of the locals.
I would highly recommend this little hotel but book ahead as they only have a few rooms. You can also book direct as they speak good English and get back to you quite quickly by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If I went to Sapa again I would definitely stay here
