Baguette and Chocolate Cafe and Hotel
A training work in progress
What we say:
Part of the Hoa Sua school for disadvantaged youth, the Baguette and Chocolate Hotel is mostly a cafe that has four rooms above for training staff in hotel management. It sits up the road from the town square and craft market in a French-style villa. The rooms are swimming in natural light, with small balconies, but basic in their fittings, although bathrooms have shower cubicles, which is unusual for the price. Winter heat comes in the form of electric blankets, so expect to spend a lot of time under the covers. There are no views but it's a cute place in a peaceful location and the included breakfast, taken in the cafe downstairs, is more than just bread and egg. Staff are all in training and many go on to take up jobs with large hotels and restaurants, but don't expect service to have been perfected just yet.

perfect place to stay in Sapa
I loved this place. It was a quiet retreat from the noise and hassle of Sapa town and the staff were a delight. I ate most meals there and took a picnic. The breakfast, which comes with the price (I paid $20 for a double bed room)was terrific with quite a bit of choice. The greatest joy, after Hanoi, was having a separate shower recess and a dry bathroom floor. Free wifi.

Great Great Great
We stayed here for Christmas in a nice large room with a small balcony. The breakfast was included in the room price of only 18 dollars per night and we were very comfortable. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is going to visit Sapa. The food and the great atmosphere always kept the place busy with lots of travelers. We hung out there like it was our own living room. I thought the staff was great and very helpful and I would stay there again anytime! Don't miss this chance to see what a great school this is and what great work they are doing. We stayed Christmas 07 for 4 days 3 nights.

Pretty good restaurant
Unfortunately we didn't get to stay at B&C but we ate there a few times. Breakfast is by far the best in town. For lunch I'd suggest the Vietnamese specialities...and the cheese lasagna. For breakfast count around 50.000vnd. In the afternoon when you're back from an 8-hour trek you'll appreciate a good coffee and a cake. They also prepare pic nic baskets for more than 5 people to take on treks (haven't tried those).
