Mountain View Hotel: "View of Mount Fansipan" Top 5 Page for this destination Sa Pa Hotel Tip by akikonomu

Sa Pa Hotels: 18 reviews and 39 photos


The range of hotels built at the edge of town (along the stretch where the Mountain View Hotel is) have good views of Mt Fansipan and valley.

The reception at Mountain View hotel was professional and helpful though I found it a little impersonal (the same staff asked us thrice for our room number during our one night stay there and staff at the cafeteria asked for payment of the included breakfast).

The room is beautifully furnished though the mattress is a little worn out and the shower sporadically throws out cold water at you when you really need that hot bath late at night. Worse still, it sometimes turns into a trickle and the gas heater makes me a little edgy and paranoid as the flame flickers and spurts.

Then again, could it only be that one room?
