Catba Palace is a 5 minute walk up the hill from the centre of the main strip. Great location as it is quiet but still close to the action. Rooms are clean and well furnished although the bed we had was a little soft. Breakfast is basic but plentiful and overall a great hotel. The service we received was the... More

We were a little disapointed with Cat Ba Palace. We had spent a long time doing our research before we decided to book this hotel, and thought location, price and comfort wise, it looked quite good. After reading all the reviews before hand and getting impression that the more expensive double room was nice, but the less expensive had many... More

Good and clean hotel for reasonable price in a walking dostance to the harbour, beach and restaurants, but ensuring a good sleep as it is not situated directly in the main street. Breakfasts are rich and staff is nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

After reading reviews about hotels in Cat Ba we were pretty worried because we wanted a decent place. Well this is exactly it! We took the delux room which was big, very clean, there was a door separating between the shower and toilet so the whole bathroom did not get wet while taking a shower and breakfast was satisfying with...

The hotel was more of a guest house due to lack of facilities. We stayed here as part of a Fantasea tour. The room was of good size and clean with a fridge. The location is up a hill on a side street with no views of the bay. The staff seemed pleasant and the food was fine and plentifull... More

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.
