Sapa Rooms Boutique Hotel Sa Pa Reviews
a great experience Mar 15, 2011
Upon arriving, Pete personally welcomed everyone who came in on the train. He served delicious coffee and chatted with everyone in the comfortable lobby. The decor and food were very nice, and Pete really gives back to the community. Location was close to a local market, just beyond which was an ATM. The hotel has some nice balcony views. As I recall the cost was maybe a little above average, but shop around. Pete passes the money on to the local economy in so many different ways, I hardly mind paying any perceived premium. Pete is a native English speaker also, which is a plus. (I had Vietnamese hotel owners buy train tickets for me, and I really held my breath and kept my fingers crossed)
Let me first say that I did not stay here overnight... Pete, the owner, arranged a hiking tour in the mountains but provided a room for cleaning up before and after the hike. He also provided a meal upon arrival. He was very accommodating and helped make all guests as comfortable as possible. After hiking, our clothes and shoes were trashed, so he arranged for a local to wash and dry our stuff stat.
This is certainly not a 5 star hotel or a spa, nor does it try to be, but it has a local flair all its own and an actively involved owner who really cares. Keep in mind that this is a 3rd world country, and Sapa is somewhat remote. This is a great place to relax, talk to other travelers, eat, and soak up the mountains.
