Reviewed December 7, 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights at end of October. Views from the balcony are phenomenal. Definitely take your wide angle lens if your camera has one. Usual hotel room, but very clean and quiet. No lift, but the stairs were good exercise. The buffet breakfast can be served outside or inside, and there is a good choice. I always have the Vietnamese Pho, delicious. Very good staff on front desk who did all they could to make our stay comfortable. Good location in SaPa and easy to walk and find somewhere good for a meal, as well as a massage after a day's trekking. It was very hot when we were there, and we needed an umbrella to prevent me getting sunburnt while trekking down the mountains.

Loved this hotel. Friendly attentive staff who saw that we were exhausted and gave us the keys as soon as the room was available. The views from the windows are gorgeous, more like an European chalet than something in Asia. Loving it here.

Booked a Mountain View Deluxe for 2 nights. King bedded room with LCD TV (we didn't use it as there's too much to see/do), nice bathroom. Balcony is great to stand on, but no chairs. Some other reviewers point out there's no lift (aka elevator) but really if the stairs are a challenge maybe you shouldn't go to the mountainous terrain in the first place. Much of the walking in the area zigzags up and down the mountains. Two computers in the lobby help in keep one in touch with the 'outside world.' The staff were courteous but we were so busy (and had a local guide) that we didn't have to test them out on local knowledge.

The time of year (October) was great and we opened the windows at night so lack of a/c didn't matter. Nothing to do with the hotel but a neighbourhood dog managed to bark for much of both nights without developing laryngitis.

As a number of tour groups use the hotel, see if you can find out when groups plan to use the restaurant for breakfast as the omelette preparation at the end of the line can cause other foods on your plate to cool off. Best to go to the buffet twice with the omelette in the second go around.

We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main stairs as the hard surfaced hallway walls bounce sound. Many guest...

We were booked into this hotel by the tour operator we used to take us to Sapa. Pro's were fantastic view, spacious and a quiet place to hide from our new friends waiting on the street who were secretly trying to sell us stuff (sound familiar). Con's: no air con, no lifts, dated decor and facilities, and only one choice at restaurant for evening which was a poor replica of a western type meal. It was so sad that I can't really remember what it was other than their version of chips were five tiny strips of deep fried sweet potatoes. So suggest you find somewhere else to eat. Even the local Vietnamese lunch we had while trekking through the various villages was a 100% improvement.

Our Tour Agents in Hanoi booked us into this hotel. As a first timer to Sapa, I found this hotel ok, and good place for a night. The front office staff was extremely courteous , and allowed us to check in early. We had a party of 3 persons, which originally booked a triple. We were touched and happy that they allotted us 2 separate rooms with good view. There were Wi fi in lobby and restaurant. We had good breakfast and meals in the restaurant.

A nice place for us to stay.

We stayed at the Bamboo Sapa hotel for one night. We were allocated a clean and spacious room, with a king-size bed, LCD TV, minibar, 2 bottles of water provided free of charge from the hotel, coffee and tea available to us to be prepared with the usual electric kettle, two armchairs and a small table placed in front of the large glass door that opened onto a lovely balcony. Bathroom and spacious, with a nice shower glass large.

Stayed her for a couple of nights, and without doubt the best thing about the place is the view over the valley. Definitely not worth getting a cheap room, you have to have a deluxe room (ie with a view).

Breakfast is OK, pretty standard Asian 3* buffet. Restaurant looked pricey and characterless, so ate out (The Hill Station definitely recommended, and hte Hmong Sisters across the roads has beers and atmosphere at half the price).

Bed comfy (enormous, in fact), shower OK, internet OK. Does everything adequately, but just too soulless to enjoy spending time there.

Room Tip: Deluxe, and 1st floor - no lift so you want to be at street level.
