How to Get There
We enjoyed our two-nights stay in Victoria Sapa. The hotel quality and the staff was excellent and very helpful. We had to climb several steps to reach the hotel but the view was marvellous from the top terrace. Breakfast was delicious. We would love to stay here longer next time!
From the moment we joined the train in Hanoi train station we we treated exceptionally by all staff. On arrival in Lao Cau we were met and transferred to the beautiful Victoria Resort and Spa.
On check in @ 8.am approx we were told to relax and have breakfast, our room was ready by 9am. We spent the day on a private tour around some local villages. On return to the hotel the staff were welcoming and we spent until checkout the next day being pampered with food, drinks and swimming.
Did the train trip on the Victoria Hotel train from Hanoi to Lao Cai (Sapa) and then 2 nights in the Victoria Hotel resort Sapa. This review is in 2 parts, the hotel and the train trip.
The hotel is fairly well appointed with comfortable beds but not really luxury level. (4/5)
The staff are lovely, attentive and friendly.
Nice view of the surrounding countryside. The countryside outside Sapa is beautiful.
Not too far from centre of town.
Food nice (but expensive by Vietnamese standards).
The hotel will organise tours etc for you. Very helpful.
No lifts so that view over Sapa comes with stairs. The porters will carry your bags though.
It gets you there and back again.
The shuttle trip from Lao Cai to Sapa and back was fine.
The train is noisy, very noisy. We were in the end cabin over the bogie (wheels) both directions and the banging noise precluded any meaningful sleep. Instead of the advertised 8 hours restful sleep ready for a days sight seeing, you get a couple of hours fitful sleep (unless you are one of those lucky people who could sleep through anything).
It is marketed as luxury travel, it is not luxury travel. The beds are firm and the service while polite includes a paper cup with warm orange juice, a very normal cup of instant style coffee and a small croissant. Not luxury.
The website advertises the Victoria Lounge at Hanoi railway station for use by travelers. As far as I can tell it is non existent. We couldn't find it, staff at the railway station didn't know about it and the Victoria Hotel representative on site knew nothing about it. Time to update your website Victoria Hotels.
Its a shame the train trip is so average as the Victoria Sapa Hotel is lovely.
If I could rate the train trip and the hotel stay separately I would score them as follows.
Victoria Express Train: 4/10
Victoria Hotel Sapa: 8/10
In Sapa, the hotels at lower elevation provide easy access into the town, while the ones at higher elevation have spectacular views. Victoria is a nice mixture, high enough for the views and still within in walking distance to the town down a set of steep stairs.
The hotel has a pleasant Hmong theme to it and is well laid out. Facilities for children and for adult activities in addition to the pool.
Breakfast buffet is absolutely excellent. Even in low season when fewer guests are in the hotel, they maintain a fully stocked buffet. Dining room and hotel staff are warm and friendly. The pace is a welcomed relief from the noise and confusion of the big city.
What a fantastic place to stay. Overlooking the town of Sapa. Outstanding service all round. Reception with welcome drink. Smooth check in process and introduction to our room. Extremely comfortable lodgings. Great service and meals in the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast. Tour desk advice and service teriffic. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
