Opened in 2013, the Swiss Belhotel, located right next to the immigration office at the border, is an imposing 186-room offering.

We're not sure that Lao Cai was exactly crying out for that many new four-star hotel rooms but it's a welcome addition for those looking for a comfortable stay in town. At the time of our last visit all rooms were at a promotional rate of US$75 – including the two-room, two-bathroom, two-TV suites with great views over Lao Cai. Presumably prices will go up once it's established but at the promotional price the rooms are great value: the huge squidgy beds are very inviting. The hotel has three restaurants on the third floor -- Chinese, Vietnamese and International – a comfortable lounge bar in the lobby and a fitness centre.
