“Sapa Unique Hotel”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Within minutes of booking on this hotels site I received an email from one of the owners expressing thanks and asking if I needed transport fro Lao Cai. I was met at Lao Cai and then taken to the hotel for $3 in a shuttle bus. Upon arrival at about 8am I was able to check in and have my room and was also able to keep my room until I took the shuttle back into Lao Cai at 6.00 pm. The plate of fruit one evening was a lovely gesture. I felt like part of a family from the get go with the lads always asking and offering suggestions for the day ahead. The rooms were clean and Internet reliable. Breakfast was quite good. The packed fruit and water was also a really nice thought when leaving the hotel to catch the train. I would not hesitate recommending this hotel and i wish these young men all the very best with their new venture....keep doing what you are doing and you will be highly successful with Sapa Unique hopefully becoming 'the' place to stay whole in Sapa.

The owner and staff do everything they can to make each guests stay as pleasant as possible. They set up daily treks with local guides and can also arrange a homestay in a small village. The restaurant (Panoramic Restaurant) had great views and great food, too! All of the rooms in the hotel have a balcony with views overlooking the valley. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

A great little hotel in an excellent location. Reasonably priced and with amazing views. The room was really clean and the beds were comfy. What makes the hotel 'excellent' is really the top service provided by Mr Viet and Mr Hung. The pair are really hardworking, professional and dedicated to ensuring all guests have a wonderful time at Sapa.

Get a room with a view. Just do it. Breakfast was great each morning. We wish we would have spent a few more days. The attentiveness of the staff here was awesome. Rarely see service like this in U.S. hotels. My favorite may have been the random fruit delivery in the evening. Thanks Mr. Hung!

I truly do admire and applaud the hardwork and hospitality that owners, Mr Hung and Mr Viet put into their hotel - being such young partners and starting up the business earlier this year. They really do take pride in what they do. Their service and hospitality is truly genuine, making you feel welcome to their hometown like a family - and their staff too.Most staff speak little English but their friendliness break this barrier - we were able to have a good time with them during breakfast and dinner!! Not to mention that food was great, too!
The room overlooks the amazing view of Sapa - you can just sit there relaxing for hours - and room is spacious and comfortable.
The tours they organised for us was excellent - giving us insights of Sapa.
This may not be a five star hotel but service is definitely 6-star+++.
Thank you for a great memory in Sapa.
I wish them all the best and hope to see them again in the near future.

We spent 3 weeks travelling around Vietnam, sleeping in more than 12 different hotels, and undoubtedly this has been our best experience.
Hung and his staff are really concerned about the guests' comfort and they do work for it.
Apart from all this, the place itself offers amazing views. We saw there's no need to go to a five star place to get five star quality.
Gracias Hung!

I would like to say that Sapa was the highlight of our Vietnam experience. Our family stayed at Sapa Unique hotel and were given two rooms with an adjoining balcony that looked straight out over a cliff onto the green rice fields and mountains. The view cannot be matched. The location is off the main road (quieter) and yet just around the corner from most of the shops and markets. Although the rooms do not have air conditioners fans are available upon request. The restaurant has an amazing view with sliding windows all around and sits perched over the cliff. Breakfast everyday was selected from the menu and the restaurant offers cooking classes. We had a lovely lesson from the chef who was quite talented and taught us to make delicious bun cha, hotpot and pork with beetle leaf. Wi-Fi and computers were available whenever we needed. All the staff were so friendly, spoke very good English, and were very helpful. We sent our clothes out to be laundered after our treks and homestay (which we booked through the hotel) and everything came back on the same day. We were able to keep our rooms when we overnighted at the homestay which made not having to pack up very convenient. Viet and Hung Le the owners provide top service, offer quality tours and are very personable. My entire family would recommend Sapa Unique Hotel to everyone.
