            Comfortable and Great View!!”

            Pros - Located at less crowded area of SaPa with beautiful Valley view right in front of the hotel! Walkable distance to discover Lau Chai Village and TaVan Village, scenery was amazing if weather is good. Comfortable heated mattress to keep you warm in the cold weather. Breakfast and food are delicious! Staffs was nice and friendly, great service 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 Cons - Away from town centre, inconvenient transportation, need to rely on cab to go to town or anywhere else in SaPa. Road condition in Sapa is terrible, riders need to be cautious. Food was great but price are relatively higher. Overall we love Sapa Clay House!

            We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at Sapa Clay House. The proprietors are wonderful people, and treated us like family. So helpful, friendly and hard working. Great food and such a fantastic room. I have not one complaint about this intimate and cozy lodge. The setting is fantastic, but hope for good weather, to see the stunning views. Mountain climates are always changing but we even enjoyed the cooler weather on the second day. We spent our full day on a trek to local villages with a local guide. Overall our trip provided a very enjoyable and meaningful experience. Highly recommended!

            The property is about 4km away from town centre. Quiet and with good mountain air. You basically can walk the cement track from this resort to Lao Chai and Ta Van on your own. There are plenty of villagers along the route and they are most helpful with directions. However, it was foggy during our stays. Bame the weather. The road from town centre to this property was under heavy construction. There were no street lamps at night and thus a bit unsafe temporarily. The staffs were pleasant and friendly. They had got 3 dogs and a cats. Had quite a relaxing stay.

            Really enjoyed the stay at Sapa Clay House during my trip to Sapa. Their staff was so friendly, efficient and engaging. When we first reached the resort, the staffs and their "doggos" made sure we feel welcomed. Also recommended us the different things to do during the stay while assisting us with our check in. Not only the room, but the whole place was clean. View from the room was awesome. Breakfast is excellent, different choices of food to choose from. From toasts and omelette to traditional Vietnamese noodles. Can't say anything more but only to experience the stay yourself. Definitely would visit again!

For all reasons really! - Incredible location and views, rooms were fantastic, well appointed, clean, with all the touches and incredible views!! Food was amazing, fresh quality ingredients, the hike we did organised by Linh was hugely enjoyable, not so touristy and easy to arrange! Can't fault this place 10/10 in all categories and I rarely rate where I stay! If you are in Sapa You must stay here! Thanks guys! Max and Francesca

            Peaceful with beautiful view”

            I went to Sapa with my friends and looked for a place which was separated from the town center but not too far. Clay House is the place to be. The room was very nice with cozy set-up. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. One of the biggest plus point was the view from rooms. Even though we could not witness all the surrounding beauties from our room because of the fog, the moutain with stair terraced field made us very enjoyable.

            First of all, you HAVE to stay here if you are ever in Sapa. The view is magnificent. We did not even venture to the town cause, how could we? With such a wonderful view. I went for a massage at the hotel and i love it! It is definitely one of the best massage i had. The owner is right, 60 mins is definitely not enough. We unfortunately had to change our timing to leave Sapa for Hanoi and the staff was so accomodating and helpful. They helped to find alternatives for us and even instruct the cab driver to help us with the purchasing of tickets. Just a note, the traffic at Sapa town can be horrible, we missed our 8.30am bus because of it but thankfully, the staff helped us to book the next best slot. For that, thank you!

            perfect day with Clay house”

            Ive been a day with Clay House and I regreted because I only reserved just one day. The view was much better than those pictures and the most amazing thing was the foods. Me and my friend had six plates for our dinner and it was the best foods during my Vietnam trip.

            Very nice ambience and amazing people!”

            Stayed here for the breathtaking view and everything else surpassed our expectations! The hosts were very nice and did an extremely good job in taking care of the needs of all their guests. I really liked going back to a drink (either their sunset cocktail or fruit juice) and then to our room with the essential oil diffuser switched on and a small note and gift on our bed every day. It rained on one of the nights, and we woke up to umbrellas at our doorsteps. Although the location is about 10 minutes drive away from Sapa town, the travelling is definitely worth it! I would stay here again when I come back to Sapa!

            Good place for retreat”

            Beautiful and scenic place to stay in, room is beautiful and clean, staff are helpful and the restaurant serves very delicious and nice food (which is my favourite), sustainable practices where they gives bottled water in glasses, and has little personalised touch as they give you a little gift like keychain and a quote of the day every evening when they clean our room. The room has light scented aroma essential oil to help w sleeping too. On the down side, the services they provides are expensive, eg trekking trips around the mountain, massage etc., which could be potentially cheaper if you source for it yourselves at the town centre. The massage wasn’t satisfactory for the price paid, as the masseurs didn’t get the strokes right. I have a sensitive nose, so I find that it is a little dusty at the dining area as my nose is triggered each time I am at the dining place. But other than that, pleasant stay because its clean, scenic and owner has knowledge and recommendations when asked.

            Excellent place, the people are even more lovely!”

            We are a group with young child and an elderly. We strongly recommend it for families or couples. They made our trip perfect. I have no complaint about the place, facilities. The people went extra miles to make sure we felt comfortable. They helped us book cars for our trips at very reasonable prices, the drivers were polite and knowledgeable. We ordered breakfast, a la cart menu, and even customized a meal and all were great. The scenery is amazing, we could enjoy sunset and sunrise, moonrise and moonset as well. We watched the cloud and sky changing at any moments in the day. The area was very quiet. The resort is nice and clean, with lovely decoration, lovely flowers and plants. The road to the hotel is a bit tough but that's ok if there is no heavy rain. I recommend to contact the hotel in advance so they can arrange car to pick you up from bus station.

            Staff were fantastic, service was amazing. They even have turn down service at night. As it is a family run business, we soon got to know everyone who worked there. We stayed in a room within the main house, and when it rained it was very convenient to go back

            The staff were assertive, alert, helpful and friendly. They are always ready to help. Food (fine dining style) was fantastic and amazing plating. Price were reasonable for fine dining. Views were spectacular and breathtaking. It was unfortunate that it rained almost non-stop during our stay there. Despite the weather, we had a fabulous time staying up there. Definitely a place for quietness and relaxation! Thanks Manh and his team!

            Upon arriving, we are welcomed by the family with their 3 lovely dogs. They are helpful and most of them can speak English. The food from the restaurant is one of the best I ever eaten (for me) though the pricing might be a bit high. Rooms are great with huge bathroom. The most awesome throughout the stay would be the view to die for! Overall worth the stay!

            It's only a few months old but the location is great with fantastic views. The staff is more than helpful and friendly. BUT the food is extraordinary. Every thing we ordered was excellent. Beds were also quite comfy and accommodations were great! Definitely don't pass up on staying here :)

            Great food and service by staff, as well as gorgeous scenery from the room! Only downside would be the lack of blackout curtains (the bedroom curtains were rather sheer) which may be an issue for light sleeper. Great hospitality by the resident cat and three dogs!
