My husband and I stayed here for two nights and paid for an extra night so that we could be guaranteed a check-in on arrival by the early morning train from Hanoi and also we were able to keep the room until our mini-van pick-up at 5:00 pm on our departure day. Well worth the price of the extra night. The hotel arranged our train tickets to and from Loa Cai, mini-van transfer to and from Sapa and a private trek to three minority ethnic villages. All went smoothly.
Breakfast was good and our room very comfortable. A space heater and a heating pad on the mattress were much appreciated. The Manager 'Hang' was very efficient and helpful and her suggestions for places to eat were very good. She is a wealth of knowledge about things to see and do in Sapa.
A highlight of our stay in Sapa was the guide 'Chi" who was provided by the hotel for our private trek to three villages - Lao Chai, Ta Van and Dzan Ta Chai. Chi is a Black Hmong and she took my husband and me off the main trekking road so that we did most of the trek up in the hills, stopping at her Mom's house where we had a visit, her brother's place to see an elaborate Shaman shrine and a lovely spot for lunch where we were the only tourists. We were also given some information about Black Hmong customs and rituals. This was an excellent experience which I highly recommend.
