Easy stay, not far from the center ( 3min walk down the hill ). Room was clean, good sleep without noise from outside. We had a breakfast for 40k Dongs pp ( drink, rice, noodles, omelete, bread ). Good stay just for sleep.

The hotel is really good location, you can reach to many bar, restaurant nearby. Buffet breakfast was good, it was enough for everyone. I enjoyed rice porridge in the hotel. The staff very help, they helped us to order cutter fish from the market to ensure that we stay away from scam salesperson.

We were on the 6th floor and had a really nice big room on the corner of the building. Has a TV, fridge, okay wifi and a decent bathroom. Everything was clean and it had an elevator which helped. Breakfast was average but fine and staff were pleasant enough. A short walk away from the harbour and restaurants. Not bad!

Overall OK hotel if you are just there for the night. Staff were helpful but didn't speak much English. Food was good but a bit dry. Air conditioner wasn't working so had to use the given fan and reception insisted AC worked.

Hotel is clean and rooms are big enough. It have an elevator. Maybe try to find breakfast from some of the restaurant in the harbour of Cat Ba. We have a triple room and it was big enough for we and our two kids.

The rooms are very big and clean. However, if you are looking for a quiet place, don't stay there. They have Vietnam parties downstairs which you hear even if you are on the 4th floor. You hear everything what is happening in the hall. The stuff is very nice and helpful. You can rent a motorbike at price 100000vnd per... More

We stayed here as part of a tour to Halong Bay. We were surprised with the quality of hotel. The room was massive with a sofa, desk, wardrobe and big flat screen TV. It was very clean and food from the restaurant was very good also. The only criticism I have is the wifi signal was weak in our room.... More

This hotel is relatively good compared to other CatBa hotels. It is also little more expensive, but value is still good. We stayed here for eight nights and enjoyed it.
