      Good guesthouse experience”

      Central location, nicely decorated room, good breakfast

      We had a pleasant three night stay at Le Gecko. The room was tastefully decorated with some nice features, and a balcony (though don't expect breathtaking views). The bathroom wasn't finished to the same level, but was clean and everything was functioning. The restaurant is good, particularly the omelettes for breakfast. It's very popular with outside guests, but there was always space upstairs on the terrace overlooking the central park, which is a daily marketplace for ethnic minorities. If anything, the popularity of the restaurant makes it feel more like you're staying at a guesthouse, and the accommodation feels like something of an afterthought. The bed was not made and bins not emptied during our 3 day stay, which -though common in Vietnam- would be a nice touch to improve the overall experience.

      Great hotel, lovely people, central,”

      Goo dlocation, clean, warm, nice staff

      the management are a family, and his wife speak very good english and are very friendly and helpful, without the normal pressure that hotels put on customers to book tours through them. like all weary travelers on the night trains we arrive at some un-goldy hour and everyone is asleep. they all get up and put us in a room with no heating and we freeze for the next few hours but we're so tired we fall asleep. from here on it all gets much better. our real room has heating and a view of the mountains. we're lucky as the sun is shining and it's clear - a rare stroke of luck at this time of the year. we eat some breakfast. have a shower and go for a lovely walk to cat cat village. the mong and red doa girls gather round like a swarm of bees. i enjoy them - find them really funny, once they stop trying to sell me things and look in my eyes. their english is amazing, they're naughty, smart and fearless. no wonder so many western men have fallen for their charms. there is a big ex-pat community here of men who are married to, dating or otherwise involved with mong women. back at the hotel mr vu is having a party and we are invited. all the local hoteliers and their partners are here, endless bottles of wine and food arrive at the long table set for about 40. i have an issue with my passport, mr vu diligently helps me call embassies and airlines. unfortunately the clouds come in and that's the last we see of the mountain. very enjoyable. nicola

      The hotel is very close to everything but in a pretty quiet area a bit away from the main restaurant and bar area. The room is very basic and the bed was quite hard, which is fine for me. Shower not bad but not enclosed. Lighting in the room was quite poor (dim). The staff were all very friendly and the owner is very attentive and helpful.

      Fantástico hotel en el centro de Sapa”

      Ubicación, desayuno, comodidad habitación

      Quedamos encantados con Le Gecko. El hotel está situado en el centro de la ciudad, entre la estación de autobuses y el mercado central de Sapa. Al llegar fuimos muy amablemente recibidos y nos permitieron hacer el check-in mucho antes de la hora prevista. Las habitaciones son amplias y muy acogedoras con una gran ventana o balcón como en nuestro caso. Los desayunos son abundantes y hay cinco posibles menús de desayuno entre los que elegir, una oferta más que aceptable. También es recomendable contratar los servicios necesarios con el propio hotel puesto que proporciona precios asequibles (tanto alquiler de motos como guías turísticos para trekking). Cualquier duda que tengáis o ayuda que podáis necesitar, hablad con el dueño del hotel directamente (pedir a los chicos de recepción por el "manager") puesto que el resto de personal tiene un inglés muy muy justo. A nosotros nos reservaron un tren de vuelta a Hanoi al mismo precio que en taquilla, sin cobrar nada de comisión. Como he dicho al principio, quedamos encantadísimos de nuestro paso por El Gecko.
