“This Hotel can be a real treat”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We, a group of five friends, stayed at this hotel on the night of Dec. 30, 2012. The first impression is great. Beautiful internal design, spacious homely sitting room and great location. However, we quickly realized that the hotel does not have an elevator and although the baggage was carried up and down by the staff, there were people who had difficulty climbing the stairs to the fourth floor, from which by the way, you had an awesome view. Moreover, the rooms were not heated. It turned out that the rooms have fireplaces but with the weather at the time of our visit, the fireplaces had to be 'on' for 24 hours in order for them to possibly make the rooms comfortable after a day out in a temp of 5- 10 C. But then, when we arrived, the fire places were not 'on' and it took the staff a good hour to bring the wood and get them started. Even then it was not such fun since the odor, or smoke, was felt in the room, not to mention the fact that we did not plan on feeding woods throughout our stay. Yes, there are electric heaters on the beds but you really do not want to spend the night with them 'on'. As other viewers wrote, this is a lovely place to stay but not in the winter and not on the top floors if you mind climbing up stairs. What a pity

We stayed here 2 nights in January 2013. The room was pleasant but on the 4th floor with no lift. The weather was cold when we arrived and there is no heating in the bedrooms apart from an open fire which the hotel lit for us but it did not give off a lot of heat. Bed had electric blanket which warmed us up. The room was not properly maintained. The handles were hanging off one of the doors to the balcony, the electric blanket only worked on one side of the bed and the extractor fan in the bathroom did not work. The bathroom was probably ready for a face lift. Breakfast was included but was only very average. Positives - the staff were very friendly and helpful, great views from our room of the mountains (we paid extra for a mountain view) and location was good for us - about 5 minutes walk to the main area of bars and restaurants.

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...
