TravelPod Member ReviewsFansipan View Hotel Sapa
My wife and I stayed here for two nights and the staff at this hotel were extremely accommodating. The rooms themselves were fine, nothing special, but a clean and quiet place to spend the night. The wireless internet was spotty in the room but there is a computer in the lobby. The location of the hotel couldn't have been better, but again, what stood out to me was the friendly and helpful staff.

Despite the many signs of poverty, they still seem to be happy and most of them own... a mobile phone!
So, we return to Hanoi by train on the night of 4 April. Once more, we share our cabin with a nice tourist couple (from Switzerland and Holland) and we drink a few beers before trying to sleep... We indirectly smoke all night as 4 young viets in our wagon smoke constantly.
It's all about ...
