“Lovely pool”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We stayed at the Victoria Hotel in mid November 2012 for two nights and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I thought the breakfasts and other food was very good and the staff were lovely. We went up to Sapa on the Livitran train was fine. We had a cabin to ourselves which was good and apparently the train got held up somewhere on the line for about an hour or so so we actually had quite a good sleep as it was not moving!

Anyway the room we stayed in was lovely and I really enjoyed the pool - with only one other person using it at the time I was there.

I would recommend staying there if your budget allows for it.

The major problem with this hotel is that it was designed with summer in mind. It is very open in all areas with only a few wall heaters and a couple of very small open fires to warm it. It seems strange that all guests felt it necessary to appear in the restaurant dressed in warm outdoor clothing. In all other aspects the hotel was really very nice. Very friendly staff, good food, small but comfortable room, but cold, however we were given an additional heater immediately upon request. Despite all this, a pleasant stay.

We stayed 1 night in Victoria when visited Sapa. We did not take the Victoria Express train because it does not run on Saturdays. The Room was warm and beautiful and breakfast was rich and tasty.The hotel is in a good location, close to the center of Sapa yet quiet enough. On departure day they let us use the Spa to take a shower before commencing the trip to Hanoi.
We took the shuttle from the hotel to Loc Hai station, which turned to be a 4-seater SUV only for us. We enjoyed an easy ride with good service in converting the voucher to train tickets and getting on the train in Loc Hai.
Drinks at the bar are more expensive than you would expect. Lobby is a bit cold if you do not sit close to the fire. Tip: get your gum boots for tribe village trekking early in the morning before they run out.

We arrived in SaPa after a perilous overnight train ride. The hotel was like a dream come through. We check-in early in the morning, had to wait no more than 10 min. to get our rooms...being so early. The room was spacious, beautiful modern bathroom and very comfortable although a little hard to keep warm. Staff service was very good. We were disapointed with the dining room as the food was just ok and the fireplace created excessive smoke. Don't miss the spa.

Spent 1 night at the Victoria on a 2 day tour of Sapa and the vicinity. We arrived with the Victoria overnight train from Hanoi early in the morinig and were provided with a beuatiful room immediately. Breakfast was amazingily diverse and tasty. The service was cordial and prompt. We had a chance to enjoy the SPA and pool which is modern and accomodating as well as make use of the showers there upon returning from a grueling bicycle ride to Heavens' Gate, prior to Boarding the train back to Hanoi. Dinner at the restaurant was on the high side beut excelent

Characterful Comfort in the Mist, preceded by on overnight journey on their 'Victoria Express'.
Had a glorious couple of days in Sapa, despite the constant mist. We embraced the atmosphere which reminded us so much of staying in a snow lodge without the snow, but still cold outside. We stayed in a suite which was delightfully decorated with local knick knacks and was always snug. Yes, it's not new and perfect but this is Sapa, Vietnam not New York and it is miles from anywhere.
Enjoyed the pool and spa. Breakfast offered lots of choice for all nationalities and local fare with warm wood fire.
Arriving early on the Victoria Express expect to be homeless until 2pm. We managed to get into one of two rooms early as my wife was ill. Most appreciative but don't expect it as some guests don't check out till noon. That said, we left at 9am on our last morning to go to Bac Ha markets (a looooong drive, 2 1/2 hours at least) and dubious as to whether it is worth it, although you will not see buffalo, birds, pigs, horses, being traded elsewhere (and you may not want to!). BUT you do get dropped off at a restaurant near the train station and 'Ha' (our guide) made sure we were comfortable and looked after. So you avoid the trip back to Sapa but must leave at 9ish on the Sunday to make the markets if you chose to.

Sapa is so beautiful, and you want it to stay like that. The Victoria Resort is committed to keeping the environment as it is. It was nice to stay in a hotel chain which takes this very seriously. The hotel itself has fabulous rooms, and great facilities. It is a short walk to town, and local restaurants and the market in Sapa. The room, and the service was great. Breakfast was of a high standard with lots of choice.
