We stayed at the Cat Cat View Hotel for 2 days in August 2011. Excellent views. Breakfast was decent. Very friendly staff.

Apart from the great views, I had read somewhere before that this hotel gave away some of their proceeds for the welfare of the villages nearby. This to us was a reason we opted to stay there.

[Note: the drop down only allowed me to select up to Jan 2012 and not August 2011]

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with a balcony, but be prepared to climb up several flights of stairs. We paid USD 30 in August 2011.

we stayed in the 15$ room which was nice but bad maintained. the higher rooms were nicer.
The staff is not nice, they are not welcoming and you feel like a walking wallet.
the good side were the electric blankets who us warm at night.

we booked a day trip recommended by the hotel staff.
The recommendation was terrible for that day. we had a bad time with broken equipment.
The staff blamed us for the bad recommendation and was very rude. they never apologized and never recognized their fault.

we do not recommend this hotel to anyone.
KEEP Away!!!!

Room Tip: we dont recommend this hotel. KEEP Away!!!!

We had only a standard room which is big but simple no cupboard only a coat hook.
The brakfast was good and also the lunch we had there the staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay but the hotel is nothing fancy!

I have been coming to this hotel for 11 years. From having to walk up 100 steps to get to the rooms, to having an elevator and being able to just walk to my room, has been an exciting change.

This is a family run hotel. The owner's policy is to make people as happy as possible in Vietnam.

This is a simple hotel, what is spectacular is the view. Depending on what time of the year you go there is fog and more fog. Weather changes all of the time. No guarantees.

The hotel is also known for its Hmong guides. Young women who take the tourists on short or long treks. This is a means of support for their families, the men usually working in the rice fields. The guides learn English from the tourists and are spectacular. You can learn a lot about the Hmong people from them and they learn a lot about the outside world from you.

The restaurant in the hotel is excellent - simple Western and local food at excellent prices. Really great to sit inside or out when the weather is good and just watch the movement of the clouds.

Most towels are thin in hotels in this range, there are a lot of electrical outrages at the hotel and many others. The complaints of the people writing about this hotel seem to be from people who are not veteran travelers.

Re staff behavior - this is Asia, courtesy and patience will pay off. Never ceases to amaze me how tourists can abuse workers in hotels and restos.

Another problem with visitors to SaPa is the fact that they come from only a few nights, you really need to stay a while.

Room Tip: try not to get a room near the elevator

Had all that was needed for a nights stop. Breakfast was fine and wifi available. Beds are very very firm, would be similar to sleeping on a floor. Would have loved to have seen the view if it was not for the mist but I am sure it would be beautiful. There is a lift.

Room Tip: Get one on the 7th floor.
