The hotel is in a quieter location of town but still only a few minutes walk to the centre. The hotel is lovely and the staff could not do anything more to assist. They are always pleasant and courteous.

The hotel is beautiful; near Sapa centre – at a walking distance – but outside the crowd; the room and bed very comfortable; the restaurant VERY good, maybe the best in town; the staff very helpful and nice, specially Hannah and Stephen from the reception!

If you are looking for great place to stay at Sapa, Aira Boutique Sapa Hotel will be a great choice. The hotel is very well maintained, great service (kudos to all the friendly staff at the hotel), comfortable room, and good location (within walking distance from the centre of the town yet away from the noisy traffic). View from our room is awesome, overlooking the mountains.

The food at the restaurant is delicious. Spa at the hotel is a must, especially after a whole day hike at Fansipan! Price is reasonable and the massage is good!

The room was spotless, the balcony views were unbelievable and the staff were so friendly and kind. The breakfast each morning was great and had a great variety including a menu of hot food that you could order from (the Banana pancake is next level) and the complimentary afternoon tea everyday was a lovely touch. We also ate in the restaurant twice and the food was excellent as were the restaurant staff. The location of the hotel is brilliant and only a short 5 minute walk in to the centre of town. It’s also away from the madness enough that it’s completely peaceful each morning and evening.

The room was exceptionally nice. It was large and comfortable and had a wonderful terrace with beautiful views of the mountains and nearby terraced rice fields. The hotel also has a small outdoor swimming pool, which was nice in the hot summer weather.

Food – The grilled catfish with noodles, spring rolls and beef pho is really good. Buffet breakfast has also a decent spread of international and local cuisine. The hotel also has a complimentary afternoon tea session from 3pm to 5pm which I think is really thoughtful as it’s the time where most guests would be back from their trekking or day tours.

Service – Excellent! I was down with food poisoning on my 3rd day and the staff at breakfast noticed that I didn’t have much of an appetite and asked me if i was not feeling well and brought me a cup of hot ginger tea. Check out is 11am but they can keep your luggage for you and they even offer complimentary room for me to freshen up before my bus to Lao Cai and train back to Hanoi. So I can quickly freshen up and take my afternoon tea before my journey back to Hanoi.

Location – I kind of like the fact that its 10 mins walk from the sapa town so it’s less noisy and away from the buzz of the town. But walking at night alone back to the hotel can be a little scary as there are limited street lights and I am quite a scaredy cat myself so at some point I really feel like running up the slopes but I was feeling too sick from the papaya salad and spring roll I had at sapa skyview restaurant and bar (read my earlier review) that I can only sing along to myself while climbing up the slopes to the hotel.

This location provides ideal access to Sapa’s top tourist sights, as well as local amenities. Eden Boutique Hotel & Spa, offers a modern and diverse range of services, including banking, excursions and transport.

All our 30 rooms are tastefully decorated and contain flat screen TVs, tea and coffee making facilities, hair-dryer, mini bar, robe, slippers and safety deposit box. Bathrooms are well proportioned and contain a selection of complimentary toiletries. All rooms have access to free Wi-Fi on unlimited devices.

Location is perfect, close to everything but also away from the main streets so nice and quiet.

It is a beautiful hotel in an excellent location – the only minor letdown was the building work which woke us a couple of mornings. It’s a great hotel with such caring and attentive staff. You are given free green tea if you hang around the reception area for more than two minutes!
The room was beautiful with a large comfy bed and a heating/air con system which worked amazingly well. The town was mostly covered in mist/cloud when we were there. Very cold but plenty of coffee shops/bakeries – recommend le gecko and le petit gecko – to hide away and warm up! Must try the hot pot – in the hotel it was 600,000 for two but we also had it at the Red Dau restaurant for less than 400,000 for two and they cook it for you there too.
Breakfast in the hotel was extensive and somewhat fancy. There is fresh fruit and yoghurt, noodles/pasta available. Some western additions in the way of small sausage and bacon. Coffee, tea, juice and water. Toast you can cook yourself in the oven – butter and jam provided and order extras like omelette and French toast from an additional complimentary menu.
WiFi was very good and available in rooms and downstairs. We had a few hours to waste after checking out, before our bus and we were able to leave our luggage safely in the closet for free while we went out to the town.

You can arrange treks to the local villages Lao Cai (12km) or Cat Cat (6km) which are 17 and 12 dollars respectively – the 12k one has a bus ride back to Sapa and lunch included. The 6k one includes the entrance fee into Cat Cat village. Both include a local English speaking guide. One thing you might want to know is that each trek attracts an entourage of H’mong women who will accompany you to the village then try to sell you their wares before lunch when you get to the village. They’re lovely women, they’ll practise their ‘high-school’ English phrases on you and help you up and down the slippery mud-clay slopes of the rice terraces but be prepared to either buy or be stubborn once you arrive at the village.

Very convenient spot located in Sapa city center and walking distance to many restaurants and foot massages! Wonderful customer service by the staff and Kenny went above and beyond to make our stay very comfortable.

Location is great, only a short 3 minutes walk to the town Center (Stone Church). Wake up early for a walk to see how the locals starts their day. Breakfast was surprisingly good with western and local options. Wi-Fi was fast, though there were times we cannot access the internet.

The Sapa Relax Hotel a great hotel for someone looking for a clean, responsive, and attentive hotel.

The rooms are spacious and clean – fresh linens, no ants, separated toilet and shower, which is rich more than I can say about many other places we stayed at. The floors were mopped and cleaned and the bathrooms were spotless, to our great pleasure. There is a small fridge (no freezer section) to use, as well as a hairdryer. They also provide some disposable toiletries (comb, toothbrush/toothpaste, etc) which came in handy.

Beautiful views of the mountains. Room was a great size and the king size bed was enormous! Fantastic shower & supremely comfortable bed & linens. Location was very central & we could walk into town easily for dining out & shopping.

The views from the bedroom and dining room are stunning.

We stayed in an executive suite overlooking the mountains and had a wonderful time. The hotel is essentially brand new. The bed was exceedingly luxurious and comfortable, breakfast was huge and had heaps of options, the massage services were the same price as local shops and we loved the amenities and the view from the restaurant.
