If you go to Sapa in the high season (autumn or spring) or during holidays and festivals strongly recommend to take care of the booking. Of course, any time arriving in Sapa, just without a roof over your head you will not stay, but will get the worst of the remaining options at fantastic prices. In our experience (of the authors), during periods of holidays and festivals, and they are frequent, prices for accommodation can rise significantly. For example, in the "Festival in the clouds" in April-may, absolutely all the hotels in Sapa raised the price 5 times! Even found a price of $ 10 rented rooms at least 50, and they still needed to find. Also prices go up every Saturday and Sunday due to the arrival of local tourists from Hanoi. So highly recommend to book your hotel in Sapa in advance. Note that in some systems, booking Sapa spelled as sa PA.

On the contrary, in the winter months is to attend to the fact that the room had a warm blanket because the nights can be very cold, and the buildings are not heated. Some hotels offer in room heaters or electric blankets.
Also note that most accommodation options in Sapa and its surroundings Breakfast is not included in the room rate, although they have no problem to order on site at the hotel for a small additional fee.

With the choice of locations of your hotel in Sapa approach is quite simple: where would you have chosen the hotel in Sapa town, given the small size of the town, to any place within its limits, you will get five to ten minutes walk. And so the only thing you should pay attention PR a choice of a place - the view from your window or balcony with mountain or city views. However, the center of the city and the most tourist area stretches around the stadium and the market in the South-East of the lake, and it is here necessary to recover, if you arrive in the city without a pre-booked hotel.
Alternative accommodation in Sapa is home placement homestay (Homestay). Of course the accommodation is really not in the homes of local residents, and in purpose-built accommodation type guesthouses, although they are marketed as a homestay.
Such options are offered not in the Sapa, and the ethnic villages in the surrounding area, and there usually stay on overnight during Hiking trips, but you can stop them independently. Hostei available in the system of search and booking of accommodation and other options, and to reach the village you will be able to taxi, rented motorbike, or going on a trekking. So, if you are not able to find a hotel in the city or just want exotic, then go to the village to find a homestay is not difficult.
Another recommendation with regards to hotels in Sapa: if you buy a tour package to Sapa in one of the travel agencies on the street of Hanoi, very carefully approach the choice of hotel. The fact that there are cases when tourists travel Agency show you the wonderful pictures of the hotel with views of the mountains, and upon arrival in Sapa is detected that the hotel is very bad. So before you decide to buy the tour with a certain hotel, do not be lazy to go to any Internet cafe (they are, incidentally, often have directly at travel agencies in Hanoi) or reach your hotel (Internet is in almost every hotel, and, in most cases, totally free), and the name of the hotel suggest you read the actual description and reviews of guests about the hotel.
