Alot of poor reviews for this place and they are all correct. My first room was covered with mould, bleech possibly chlorine an other hazardous fumes. The wifi is useless, beds are as hard as the ground, the bathrooms are falling apart etc. So I paid more Money for a better room, aircon was dodgy, cable tv didn't always work,... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in one of the recently refurbished suites and was pleasantly surprised by the value for money we got. Location is good, close to the seafront and most of the action. The room itself was good and spacious, two separate rooms, one of them with sea view. AC worked well and the bathroom... More

We stayed here for 1 night as part of an STA Travel Cat Ba Island trip. They chose and booked this hotel, not us. Of our 16 days in Vietnam this was the least impressive hotel of the lot. The room was ok in size but very tired and dated and smelled a little fusty. The air con and fridge... More

Rooms are ok:spacious but mine had several little problems such as air conditioning dying and water tipping. All the hotel restaurants were closed which affected the quality of the breakfast which was instant noodles. If you're waiting for relaxing and doing a lot of activities here, consider also the nightclub inside the hotel. It get's very noisy. Can't recommend this... More

We stayed here 1 night in mid-April, and it was our first night after a very, very long trip. It is within walking distance from the ferry. The breakfast was good, and the view was great from the rooftop. Room was fine but nothing special. Bed was very firm, as we found are all beds in SE Asia. Staff is... More

The best part of the hotel is definitely the 9th floor restaurant. Delicious breakfast buffet with incredible views of the entire harbour. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Location is perfect, central of the Cat Ba City historical wharf.

We have spent 3 nights in deluxe room and we have really enjoyed our nights. The price was not expensive (15 dollars per night, breakfast included on rooftop with amazing view!!!) and the employes were really kind. It is locate near all shops and restaurants. Enjoy your hollidays with them :-)

I suggest to book this hotel before or after the vietnamese hollidays otherwise you will be surrounded by many vietnamese kids screaming right next to you. Yet The room of three peoples is quite nice and confortable. Breakfast included but you have only two hours from 6 am to 8am to enjoy it. A good point is that hotel is... More
