About 800-metres from the town centre along the road toward Lai Chau, this relatively new place (built in 2005 or so) is definitely in the category of ’If you build it they will come’.

The building is a green monstrosity but some effort has gone into making the courtyard attractive. It’s in a good location, on a rise at the edge of town, but stirring views of the rice fields are only available if you’re standing in the hallway. The cement-walled rooms are a bit damp (but then, this is a misty mountaintop) and feature decent furnishings, desks, table and chair sets, rose-coloured tile floors, some stucco decorative touches, and pretty good bathrooms with tubs in the pricier rooms. The prices are outrageous, but you’ve got no option if you’re spending the night here. The staff speaks very little English.
