Cat Ba Princes Hotel is good, clean hotel in Cat Ba. It is located in the center of Cat Ba town. There's no views from the rooms but nice views from the restaurant on the top floor. This is a mid-range hotel in Cat Ba.

Visited the princes hotel yesterday and was extremely disappointed from the moment we arrived. On arrival they took our passports as they said they didnt have a photocopy machine. We were unhappy with this and requested them back but was refused. We were informed that there would be have little to no internet connection in our room despite being advertised... More

The staff was friendly, very helpful to the point they went out of their way to make sure everything was fine. The breakfast was very good. The location was good for us. We wanted to be near the Cat Ba Town, but still close enough to go to the beach and we was right to stay at Princes Hotel. We... More

Stayed with a group of 8 people for 4 nights. The Hotel has everything you can ask for in terms of comforts with a 3-4 star standard. The staff was very friendly and helped with everything from changes of rooms, printing to guiding. The best part was the terass and the dazzling view. The only let down was the limited... More

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
