Good mid-range choice
Sapa Royal View's claim to be Sapa's only boutique hotel is no longer true but it remains an impressive option along Cau May.
Rooms are spacious and light and though minimally furnished come with the expected hotel accoutrements: tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer, telephone, cable TV and minibar. Bathrooms have a tub with shower but no curtain: still, it's better than a wet room... Deluxe rooms have heaps of room and a sweeping view of the valley and superior rooms are spacious enough but only have a city view. Deluxe rooms also come with air-con, just in case of soaring temperatures, and conversely, heated blankets are standard. Buffet breakfast in their smart restaurant is included. Staff speak good English and are very sweet. Shop online for a competitive rate.
