Upon arrival in this 4 star hotel (in fact the only "luxury" one in Sapa), you get charged for everything you do. Although the hotel was half empty, we were told it was full but kindly offered an early check in for 50 dollars (did not make much sense). We declined, (the train to Sapa always arrives in the morning so giving everyone an early check-in would, in fact, be difficult) and were "invited" to wait for our room to be ready while enjoying breakfast (20 dollars each) or having a massage in their Spa (50 dollars each). Also, we were asked if we wanted to upgrade our room to one with a better view (10 dollars), just to find out the view was internal and not facing the mountains. The actual surcharge was for the same room we had, but one floor higher. Personally I found this hotel to be a tourist trap for people who are impressed by the hotel's 4 stars. Although the treatment you get is not close to the one of a luxury hotel, the rooms are nice and breakfast is very good.
