Sao Mai Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Bac Ha
Reviewed 15 February 2017

The reception without any hospitality. Everywhere dirt, we first had to request that the bathroom was to be cleaned. The bed hard not near western stile, the beding partially dirty. The cussion smelly. The breakfast terrifying with the exeption of the soup procured in a nearby restaurant.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel.

We had a nice experience in this hotel, room was not very big, but decently clean as well as the bathroom, air-con working properly (even as a heater, it was cold when we were there !), no problems with hot water.
Honest breakfast and nice food at dinner, nothing to complain about.
Staff willing to help, even though little English was spoken, good massage, even though the room was a little bit cold. Our room was in the old area, but it was ok for our one night stay for Bac Ha Sunday market (which was stunning)

Myself and my girlfriend stayed there for one night on our Easy Rider tour. Its a rather large complex. The staff were friendly and nice to us. We went down the road and found a quiet bar for a few beers. We ate dinner elsewhere. Breakfast wasn't too bad. We would stay there again, it looked like the best option in that quiet country town.

This hotel was booked for us as part of a tour of the region and we were warned in advance that accommodation in the area is basic.

The room was clean, had working air con and was comfortable. It was quirky in its decor and basic in facilities but not nearly as bad as the reviews below make out- it's important to remember where in the world you are and immerse yourself in it rather than getting hung up on the mod cons of your hotel room.

We were in town for the Bac Ha Sunday market like most people and it was good to stay the night before so we got to see it in full swing before those on the overnight train from Hanoi arrived.

I'd recommend this as a simple place to stay for one night while visiting the market.

Stayed: November 2015
