Sapa has accommodation ranging from bare-bones cheapies, through to boutique-style offerings, and a luxury hilltop resort. Most hotels listed have views, but Sapa’s building boom can change that overnight; check when you book.
Prices are competitive, but often double on busy weekends around Saturday’s love market. Note some midrange places also have excellent budget rooms.
Beware of hotels using old-style charcoal burners for heat, as the fumes can cause severe breathing problems if the room’s not well ventilated. Most hotels have now switched over to electric heaters or open fireplaces for the winter.
