First of all I'm pretty amazed by some people's bad reviews on here about hoang ha. I'd go so far as to suggest that the main complaints are from those who have far too high an expectation of a hotel that charges roughly £6 per person per night. I dare anyone to find a hotel in england charging that much for a double room with its own bathroom and balcony looking over the town. One complainant seems to not understand that a standard Asian bathroom is generally a wet room with no defined shower area curtained off... welcome to international travel my dear!
Sure it's not 5 star accommodation but for that price I think it was great. Clean room, 2 person bathtub in our bathroom (room 304 if you're interested), hot water, flask of boiling water on request if you fancy making your own cup of coffee.
Breakfast included which was perfectly fine just your standard Vietnamese range of eggs, rice, bread, pho, noodles, pancakes and fruit with tea, coffee or juice.
Bugs and cockroaches, well we didn't see any but you're in the mountains for goodness sake so to find them is hardly surprising, so long as they're not in your bed or your food they don't do any harm.
We had a great stay, helpful staff from the day we booked, emails to arrange the transfer from Lao Cai answered quickly.
All in all, if you're just a normal budget traveller looking for a reasonable spot to rest your head in the evenings then you can't go wrong. If you're expecting the Hilton for the price of a premier inn then look elsewhere!
