Sapa

Sapa has loads of places to stay, particularly in the flashpacker to midrange brackets, with a few choice luxury and boutique options. Most hotels overlook the valley, and feature views of Mount Fansipan and the Hoang Lien mountains, to varying degrees. Sapa stays cooler than the lowland coastal areas, so few rooms feature air-con or even a fan, but your chief concern, arriving on a cold winter's day, should be heating go for a room with a fireplace that works or decent heater. Hotels that don't offer tours, train tickets, visa arrangements and market trips are rare.

Sapa can get extremely busy, particularly at weekends and peak holiday periods, so if you've set your heart on somewhere or don't fancy trekking around trying to find an available room then book in advance. It's also worth noting that prices tend to go up at the weekend, promotions in summer are common and hotels can be vague and inconsistent when providing hotel prices, so those cited here should be taken as an approximate guide only.
