Great value and nice hotel with staff and family owners that try very hard to make your stay enjoyable. The hotel is located on one edge of Sapa (on the way to the village of Cat Cat). it has fantastic views of the valley and mountains - absolutely spectacular on a sunny day....but if it is cloudy or foggy (which can happen quickly in Sapa) then the views disappear.
Sapa is a very hilly town and this hotel is located a fair way down a road that could be hard work for older or less fit people. It is paved but steep.
The rooms are good - particularly the larger rooms with balcony views - very spacious and relaxed feel. The bed matresses are hard (so if you have back problems ask for a softer matress) and the minibars are not stocked but there are plenty of small bars or shops nearby to buy your own.
All of the staff are very friendly and professional -very keen to help and will organise tours, laundry etc for you and it is all efficient and cheap. They are really nice people and most peak good english. The location is very safe and you are always made to feel welcome.
Our only negative comment would be the drive from the hotel to Loa Cai to catch the train. A spectacular drive through steep mountains and the hotel can arrange their driver for about A$20. This part was good but when we left the hotel it was dark and thick fog. The driver, whilst very skilled did not seem to care about scaring his passengers by driving way too fast for the conditions. He had to overtake every vehicle in the dark and fog even on blind corners and cliff edges.- even took phone calls while driving like this - scared the sh#! out of us and tarnished what was otherwise a really fantastic experience witht he hotel.
