“Homey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

I booked a room for 3 days 2 nights but because my Fansipan trip was extended so had to cancel 1 night. Mr. Duong- the manager - was not only super nice and understanding for my unexpected situation but also willing to let me late check out until over 5pm with little little charge (about $2 extra, my total spend for 1.5 days there was approx. $14).
The hotel is right in the heart of Sapa but not noisy at all, it's just right next to Sapa Post Office. The room was really nice, comfortable bed and especially there is a kind of fan heater which keeps you warm in the evening. My room was a small balcony also.
There is a restaurant on the ground floor but personally, I don't highly recommend it as it's a bit expensive and not excellent food.
In summary, I have to say that Gecko is really worthy hotel and you really should check it out.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with balcony then you can have a view of the night market

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2010

We found this place after we were unhappy with the room we were offered at another hotel that we had pre-booked while in Hanoi. Looking back, this was the best thing that could have happened.

From the outside, it would be easy not to notice that rooms are available as Gecko appears to be just a cafe/restaurant. The rooms are really spacious and simply decorated in a traditional style. There is a wood stove in each room for the colder months and hot water is always available. Our room had a small balcony which overlooked the church and Fansipan mountains beyond.

The staff were really friendly and helpful to us. They even went as far as booking us some accommodation at Dien Bien Phu for our onward journey to Laos. There is wi-fi and internet available downstairs in the cafe area and tours and treks can also be booked from here.

Overall, I really cant think of any more you want from a place to stay in Sapa and it was the cheapest place we found in all of Vietnam.
