Well, gosh, my stay at the North Star Hotel in Sapa, Vietnam, wasn't particularly pleasant. The hotel itself has an institutional feeling - all corridors.
There is no wifi, nor internet connectivity in the rooms, although wifi is available in the lobby, where there was a small desk with one computer (presumably for lobby-level connection to the internet). My room had a small, picture tube tv, providing poor reception.
Any institution, even a small hotel, should arrange to have its rugs cleaned periodically, but this was obviously not a priority at North Star. As I made my way to my room, the stained carpeting gave me a right-from-the-getgo poor impression.
The room was chilly (Sapa is in the mountainous area of Northern Vietnam).
I had the pho for breakfast, which did not come with the typical condiments I received in other hotels and restaurants.
The sparse staff was pleasant but I kind of felt like the last person on a ship being abandoned. A weird experience.
