I think we don't have to write about the beautiful nature of Sapa, it's all said. The view of the restaurant on the 4th floor is awesome. Even if the variety of meals for breakfast isn't much, any of it is really delicious. The room facility is also good. You've got everything you need excepting a TV,what we actually not needed. Further is Mr. Diego Tran and his family gentle and helpful, whatever you have. They offer a laundry service, a motorbike rent, they organize different trips for you - to put it all in a nutshell: they will help you everytime. All what we can do is saying thank you to family Tran for our great stay. Jonas and Kassandra

Diego and his wife are very friendly and nice and they go the extra mile to make sure that all my needs were taken care of even after I checked out. The mountain view room is also comfortable and has all necessities. Highly recommended!

The homestay is clean, welcoming and has an incredible view of Sa Pa on the fourth floor which can be enjoyed while munching away on a delicious breakfast. The hosts and staff are very friendly and extremely helpful for booking treks, motorbikes or just giving you a suggestion of where to go or where to eat. Visiting in the winter can be a little tougher as there is no heating in the room (they do have heated mattresses and blankets) which is common for Homestays in the area. They also have hot water at the ready. What little you give up in comfort is more than made up in the wonderful experience you’ll have staying here.

Sapa was cold and wet and foggy when we visited but we had a great time in our upper level suite at the homestay. It was comfortable with all that we needed and a big fluffy blanket for the cold nights! They arranged our trek and had loads of ideas for other activities. Also the breakfast they serve is reasonably priced and delicious in the upper level.
