The hotel is very well placed on the island waterfront. The rooms are quite big (we had three big beds for two). We got a very good price per night - 8$ so we were happy. The room smelled humid and the bathroom could be renovated (humid walls etc). There might be a lot of sound during high season du... More

Confortable room, very clean, good wifi, sea view for a very fair price (about 8$ in February). We compared it with 4 other hotels before taking the room, for the same price, this one is really higher level! The hotel is quiet, no need earplug (1st time in Vietnam!)!There is even a lift!Manager is professional, takes care of customers. He... More

There are good point and bad points for this place, we stayed in a double room overlooking the harbour for $8 per night. Good: Room decor looked new, nice flat screen on the wall, with cable. Mattress wasn't as hard as others in Vietnam if you're used to budget accommodation, but it's nothing to rave about. Oh and a lift.... More

We stayed here from a recommendation in the lonely planet guide. Stating it was a little nicer then the other hotels. At $8 a night in low season it was a bargain HOWEVER we stayed 4 nights in total and had our room cleaned never, after 3 days we asked to have it cleaned as our bin was over flowing... More

This is a wonderful hotel, one of my absolute favourites. It is amazing value too. We got a twin room for only £3 a night each and this is one of the nicest hotels we had stayed at our whole time. I was surprised to see that others had given less good reviews, but they were clearly doing a lot... More

Functional and clean budget accommodation, great views of Cat Ba Town Bay from 3rd floor. Friendly and helpful staff, can help you book tours and onward travel. Also rent motos and can provide info on the area.

The lady who runs this place does not speak English but makes such an effort and is so lovely - she really deserves a mention. The room was very clean, with a nice TV, and good bathroom. Shared balcony out the front is a little weird as you need to keep curtain closed to keep people from looking in. A... More

Arrived in Cat Ba without a booking and decided to stay here on the basis of a relatively positive recommendation from our travel book. Room was cheapish at $15 for the room and facilities were distinctly moderate - hard single beds (travelled as a couple), no batteries in aircon remote and the bathroom wasn't great - no shower cubicle so...
