“A Lovely place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is a delightful hotel and has a real family run feel to it. It is located a short walk from the centre of town so it's location is very peaceful and quiet yet not too far from where all the action is.The staff are amazingly friendly and obliging. The rooms are well appointed with alot of wood and ethnic craftwork incorporated in the decor. We were very charmed by the quiet consideration shown when upon seeing the "grey hair" our 5th floor room key was discretely swapped for a 3rd floor room . Little did they know that we are fit sailors and the 2 extra flights of stairs were not a problem especially given the view from the 5th floor room !.Once the Cloud ocean disappeared it was absolutely stunning , however, watching the town and the valley below being covered and then uncovered by clouds had an unique atmosphere of its own.
By the time we got to Sapa we had been travelling for 3 weeks so a laundry session was sorely needed. This was done very cheaply and quickly by the hotel.
Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to eat in the resturant in the evening but the Pho Ga for breakfast was excellent.
I would be very happy to stay there again

Room Tip: Worth the extra stairs for a room with a view. This place would be a problem for people who are disa...

Stayed here for two nights in late November 2012 and was really impressed. Lovely room with views over the valley. Clean, well appointed with lots of wood in the room and throughout the hotel. Service was excellent and the staff so helpful and friendly. Food was so good in the restaurant that we used it on both evenings. If you are visiting Sapa then this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Be a couple of floors up with a view out over the valley

Considering the fair price this hotel offers more than you might expect. Cosy, clean rooms with a fireplace that actually worked when we came back from dinner on a chilly day. The breakfast is simple but good, the staff is very friendly and helpfull. Only downside could be that it is a bit out of the centre ( approx. 10 min walk) but if you can get a 'mountain view' room that's worth while walking.

We stayed at Sapa View hotel for 2 nights.Sure that a room with air-con but found almost hotel here without it. ur room was the same but they already set a fireplace inside the room was brilliant. With fireplace, we couls get enough warmless to prevent the cold weather from outside, the hotel staffs were attentive, eager to bring an addional mattress on request. A nice hotel!!!

Booked two deluxe rooms through a travel agent from Hanoi at very good rates. My most important condition to the travel agent was that the rooms must have mountain views. On our arrival on 10 Dec, we were not disappointed. The hotel upgraded one of the rooms to a suite with fantastic panoramic view of the valley and mountains. The deluxe room has two small balconies with equally impressive view. My family and I enjoyed watching the clouds move in and out of the valley and into the town from the comfort of our rooms.

Both the suite and deluxe rooms are very well equipped with in-room safe, fridge, tea making facilities, robes and slippers. There is also a fire-place in the rooms which they lighted for us in the evenings. As the weather was cold, we enjoyed taking long hot showers under the rain showers.

During our first breakfast at the hotel, we were pleasantly surprised that we can order any items from an All-you-can-eat menu. The items were freshly cooked and served. During our third and final breakfast there, as there were more guests in the hotel, the breakfast was more of a standard fair buffet breakfast.

The staff in the hotel are very friendly. Despite us trying to clean off the mud after our hikes, our shoes still left dirty marks in the lobby. Instead of frowning at us, they assured us that it was OK and promptly went on to clean away the marks. The manager, David, and another guy at the counter are also very friendly and offered us insights into Sapa. When we needed some travel advice and to contact our agent in Hanoi, they gladly assisted.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a room with a view of the valley and mountains. Rooms 404 and 504 have two balc...

Our group of 10 including children arrived on 10th of november, and had the most enjoyable time in Sapa because of our stay in Sapa View Hotel had exceeded our expectation. We almost have gone to Bamboo Sapa hotel, thank goodness it was full when we tried to book. We believed that Sapa View Hotel had more of quality things to offer, their helpful and friendly staff such as Ms Trang, Manager David and the rest including the hotel owner, who took care of us very warmly and well. We love everything about this hotel, the concept, design, services, cleanliness, location, TamTam restaurant, homely yet cozy feelings, very artistic and relaxing to be. If we ever come back to Sapa we will stay here again, and we will also book all land tours with your hotel.

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms are the best
