Had an amazing stay at Sapa Eco home last week, in the lap of mountains surrounded by lush green rice paddies. The location is perfect, unlike other usual hotels Sapa eco home offers the peace, tranquility away from city life one requires for a lovely vacation. The staff is lovely and very helpful. The rooms were really clean and had all modern services needed. I would definitely consider going back again and recommend this place for anyone seeking peaceful and relaxing holidays.
Our room was very clean The view was amazing The receptionist was super helpful! We booked taxi transfers, did laundry service, rented motorbikes, and we were able to gather information about Sapa very easily with her. Thank you so much!
Amazing place with a breathtaking view. You can choose (when booking) whether you want to stay in a bungalow or in dormitory. We booked dormitory but as we arrived, it appeared that the room for us was too small (my friend is very tall and takes a lot of space :D). Luckily on of the bungalows was available. Bungalow was very spacious, clean and very sufficient. Bathroom was clean and very specious.
The house is run by a family who is trying to be very helpful at every step of your trip. They were able to organise a transport to the station and guided tour around Sapa.
The breakfast was amazing so were other dishes on the menu. Lunch and dinner are also available in the restaurant.
Laundry service also available.
Please be advised that if you are arriving Sapa by bus and you are taking taxi to the Eco-home by yourself, you need to be prepared to purchase a ticket at VDN 75,000 (per person) while getting into the villages’ area.
Do not book the ‘triple’ room, you will be disappointed. It is not suitable for guests.
The information on the booking site was not accurate. We booked for two and the room was advertised with balcony and an expectation of views of the valley. What we got was the ‘triple’ room with two beds which is adjacent to the kitchen, laundry, dining and bar of the communal area used by staff and guests alike. There was no balcony or outdoor area in which to relax and enjoy the view. The constant noise of cooking, washing and talking drove us crazy. Although we complained on arrival nothing was done to change the room during our three night stay. To add to our dissatisfaction, the room was charged out at the same rate as the lovely quiet and detached bungalows with balcony and sweeping views. The rate was reduced only after long discussions between ourselves, staff and the absentee owner and even then it was double the price of anything comparable. The staff made an effort to placate us offering personal guided excursions that we were grateful for and without exception the staff were delightful. The breakfast and dinner were great. But do not let the staff book using their own taxis/transfers for which you will pay double unless you want the convenience.
SaPa is not the small village one is led to believe; the town and many of the roads in and out of it are under construction. It’s a long and expensive trip to get to SaPa and our trip was ruined by this accommodation, however the location and setting of the bungalows and the helpful staff would make this a good option if you choose anything other than the 'triple' room.
We stayed for 2 nights in this homestay. The bungalow (buffalo bungalow) had a super nice view over the rice fields and the mountains. Luckily we had sunshine everyday and no rain, so we could enjoy the panorama all the time.
The equipment is tastefully decorated and clean. We also had a mosquito net over the bed.
The breakfast ist à la carte but you can reorder if you haf not enough. The watermelon juice (freshly made) , the pancakes and the passion fruits are amazing! The veggie noodle soup with egg is also yummy.
On the first day we went trekking from the homestay to Lao Chai and back. The path ist half way good and half way very stoney. It is not a long way (if you like trekking) but in the sun it is very exhausting.
Sa Pa town is 15 min (by car) away from the Homestay. The taxi driver took 100.000 Dong.
On the 2nd day we rent a Motorbike from the Homestay (7 usd/day). Very comfortable way to ride over the mountains and small villages like Lao Chai, Cat Cat, Tan Van. I recommend to use a Motorbike gor sightseeing. You dont need to book a trip with a guard.
We had a veeery nice stay with „action“ and relaxing. All in all it was perfect!
