DON'T go here, we stayed 1 night but it was awful. Airco was noisy, windows were not clean so seaview room did not matter. No warm water, shower and toilet is full of water after a shower because of bad showerhead. We had bugs in our bed the morning after. Staff extremely rude, not even saying hello or goodbye when...

After only just reading the reviews of this place I am extremely Suprised we had nothing stolen. We managed to get a huge double room for 15 dollars. The view of the harbour was great. Don't expect to get your room cleaned , no matter how long you stay. The room was clean on arrival , bathroom fine - our... More

We had money stolen from our room on the final night and only realised once we were on the train. I have nothing positive to say about this place. I'm extremly upset and dissapointed.

One thing i learned about Vietnamnese is that they seem pretty innocent but DON'T TRUST ANY OF THEM, they just want your money. We stayed at the bay view hotel and got robbed by the reception guy who has back up key and have access to every room. They robbed us and called the police, the local police doesn't speak... More

We were robbed in this hotel too, everything looked so nice... They have a room (101) where they keep copies of all the keys, anyone from the staff can just go in and take the keys and rob you like they did to us. The cook threatned us with a knife, we complained too much so police came and arrest... More

This hotel seems good value with large rooms. Staff are helpful and willing to arrange things for you, but: it is a facade! We were robbed in this hotel: money and memory cards were stolen by hotel staff while cleaning our room. Unfortunately we only found when we'd already left Cat Ba island.

Staff is not nice and bad english spoken except one girl, the guy who welcomed us had taken drugs before according to his face... Bed sheets werent clean at all. Otherwise,... More

When we arrived at Cat Ba we just walked in to ask for a room and they had one available with a great view of the sea. The room was large enough for us, but the bed sheets could have been better. The staff was very friendly and helpful. As other reviewers mentioned, this hotel is in a price/quality range... More

I only stayed here because there seems to be a gap in Cat Ba town between countless very low standard hotels and a handful of nice but over priced ones. My sheets had obviously been slept in before, were full of cigarette burns, were damp, and the "blanket" was a very thin coverlet which didn't keep me warm at all.... More
