Despite an over-sized and uninspiring reception area, the rooms here are decent — very clean, light and airy, with good furnishing and bedding, and tubs in the well-tiled bathrooms.

There’s also an air-con, cafe/restaurant on the second-floor which might be just what you’re looking for on a sweltering day. Room rates would be reasonable for the standard if the hotel were elsewhere, but in Lai Chau there are better priced options available if you’re watching your budget.
