This hotel was the absolute best accomodation-breakfast deal we could find on Cat Ba. Well pleased with the price. Super cheap, even by Vietnam's standards. Huge room with two double beds, and a killer view over the bay. The lady who served us was really hospitable and generally lovely. Only possible downsides to this hotel (didn't bother us, especially at... More

We stayed in a large double room for 2 nights which included breakfast (fried egg sandwich). On the plus side the room was huge, had great views over the harbour and was good value. On the downside the room was not clean. The bins were full, the mats needed a shake and I'm not even sure the bathroom had been... More

Small clean room at the back, so reasonably quiet. Comfortable bed, all you need for a short stay. Friendly staff. Cafe downstairs does good coffee in the morning. The owner put me up free after his tourist boat failed to deliver me to Halong City. In the middle of Halong bay we failed to find his brothers boat and it... More

I stayed for 2 nights in this hotel in Cat Ba town. It is a simple hotel, nothing luxurious, but at the price paid you cannot expect more. The room I was given was huge compared to all other rooms I had in Vietnam. It was clean, although the bathroom looked a bit outworn. The room had a TV, which... More

Quite simply, this is the best budget choice in Cat Ba. We had a room with a sea view, beautiful view, great size, AC & fan, ensuite bathroom clean and shower hot. There doesn't seem to be a website for this hotel and links on booking.com & agoda don't work, but we asked our hotel in Hue to phone for... More

Great views but the owner sulked when we didn't go out on his brothers boat. Avoid their food too - its below average. Head to Bamboo around the corner.

I spent three nights here - the room was very large with a view onto the water. I could have paid a little less for a room without a view (USD5 instead of USD8 during this low season). I looked at a couple of rooms in different hotels but chose this one as the staff were very friendly and there... More

I'm calling to make a reservation for $ 10, sounds very good and I have set for two nights but on arrival boss motels that welcome us and lead us to his home, I was really surprised because this not a hotel, a popular hostel known in the Viet Nam should be just. We arranged third floor, in spacious rooms... More

The manager (the tall guy in the reception who speaks good English) who runs this hotel is helpful, friendly and always ready to give any advice (the best of all, he is not pushing you to get his tours but once you are interested on booking a tour for sure he will give you all the information you need).

We stayed at this Hotel for three nights and felt so at home! The staff is so friendly and chilled out. Nobody tries to hassel you with tours and this is thanks to the incredible English speaking manager named Ouchaza. The only thing you get from this man is honesty and friendliness and that in the most scammy and touristic... More
