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

We stayed 1 night as part of a 3 day pre booked Halong bay tour. Everything was great, friendly staff (at first) and room was good quality as expected. There was a lot of loud Vietnamese children running about in the lobby areas all day which also made the floor slippery after them coming back from the beach, especially on... More
