Stayed two nights in a twin room on the first floor. Good size room without window (so much quieter), comfortable bed especialy for Viet Nam. Situated in a small alley that reveales it self in the morning by being a market! Seafood right outside in front you while you eat your breakfast, included by the way. Wanted to come back... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Cat Huy Hotel. It was clean and comfortable and the room was nice and cool upon our return, which was a much needed respite from the heat and humidity. There were a few bugs in the dresser by the bathroom but it wasn't unexpected in SE Asia! Admittedly, we always got turned around trying... More

I arrived in Ho Chi Minh city and was greeted at the airport by a shuttle I had order through Cat Huy. Swiftly taken from the airport to the hotel and was pleasantly greeted by staff. Excellent location, quiet at night and almost anything you could need is 2 blocks away. Staff are accommodating and professional. Rooms affordable and comfortable.... More

This was a restful, modern option for a hotel in HCMC. It's set down a narrow alley where a local market takes place during the first part of the day. You can sit having your breakfast, as you watch people buy their veggies and seafood. The main staff guy could not be more pleasant or helpful. The rooms were pretty... More

Our room was beautiful. It even had an enclosed shower! And the water pressure was good, and we never ran out of hot water! The location was convenient for tourists, though the alley it is on turns into a hectic and tight market during the day. Compared to the other places we stayed at in the same price range in... More

This was our first experience of Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh so keep this in mind when reading this. The hotel arranged an airport pick up for $15 - we were delayed at the visa by two hour que and were exhausted and so relieved that the taxi was still waiting. The alley way setting meant we would have struggled... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and would recommend this hotel. The location down the alley is slightly off putting in the dark so solo travellers may want to stay in alternate accommodation. As a couple it was fine and is a good retreat from the noise of the backpacker bars on Bui Vien St whilst still being close to... More

The hotel is small, tall and has no elevator, like many of the hotels in HCMC. The Cat Huy is tucked away down an alley so you're slightly away from the hustle bustle madness of the city, though may not be recommended for a female solo traveller. But it is close to the centre, just a short walk to the... More

My main grievance with this hotel is that it is located at the junction of three extremely seedy and poorly lit alleyways. The first night I arrived here, two girls were attacked right outside the hotel and had their passports stolen. When I later mentioned the incident to the woman at reception, she said people get mugged here quite frequently... More

In the old town, with walking distance to many attractions, you find this lovely little hotel 50 meters in from the main street on a local originally narrow street. The hotel rooms are very nice and you feel that they are well maintained and decorated with taste. The staff engages them self in all questions you have regarding shopping or... More
