Booked a room for my family of 4. Hotels.com says room for 5-6pax but only allowed me to book for 3pax with breakfast. Villa owner, Mr Tranh, received and checked us into his villa early morning before 7am free when I booked for 2pm check in. He granted free breakfast to the 4th pax for 3d2n stay. Villa is new, about 6 mos. Room is clean. As website photos show,room with balcony faces the paddy field view. Mr Tranh can speak good English. He taught us how to trek around his villa with beautiful scenery. He helped us to book taxi and one day tour with no hassle. Breakfast was great, prepared n cooked on the spot. Homely feel. Will come back if I go Sapa again.
One point to note is the villa is located in village area, away from Sapa town. During winter, it is not too cold in village but colder n foggy in Sapa town. Many roads n hotels/villas under construction. As per Mr Tranh, completion in Mar'2020.
