We spent there two nights, the room on the 8th floor is nice and good size, with great bathroom, but the best thing is the view. The jung man working in this hotel was realy helpfull and rented us motobikes and helped to arrange way to Hanoi. We have enjoyed the stay and we can recomend this hotel.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our time. Our room was huge and included a balcony with beautiful views, air con and a tv. The younger guy that books all the tours is super friendly and helped us with tours and onward travel to Sapa.

We stayed one night here and it was pretty good. We had a balcony room with three beds which was large and clean. The staff are not the friendliest but were fine to deal with. The view of the harbour from the front of the hotel is stunning but the street noise is super loud so there's a tradeoff. Beware... More

Cat ba town is pretty loud and busy, so it is not surprising that you can hear street noice even on the 7th floor. But the room had three beds, air conditioning, balcony (photo taken from the balcony), and clean but I wish it had curtains on all the windows. It was fine for a night.

The hotel has just been repaired and refurnished since end of April 2015. The rooms are really new and nice and clean, the view is breathtaking ( I stayed w my family in the 8th floor, the balcony is toward the ocean and there's other window toward the harbour). The price is cheap (we paid 35$ for 2 nights at... More

We stayed 2 nights at the 1st floor room. The room is very big and clean (new wall painting), 2 beds, and a very clean bathroom with hot shower. It looks like new! Nice view - but not the best of the hotel. For a couple a dollars more you can get an even better view with balcony. The hotel... More

Not bad, not great. I was travelling with a friend and we were upgraded to the triple room on the top floor - great views but a mission to climb all the stairs! Beds were big but not very comfortable. Air con. On the main strip but being up a few floors meant were were away from the hustle and... More

We had booked ourselves a double room but we were given a triple room at no extra charge. The room itself was massive and clean. The air conditioning was poor and didnt provide much relief from the heat. The best part was the view we had from our balcony. We were on the top floor and you could see the... More

A double room was only USD 15 per night. I came here because it was recommended in my guide book. The place was basic but has everything you need to feel safe and comfortable. I thought it was great place to base because it is in the center of the main strip on the water. I asked for, and was... More
