The rooms were very big. We had a nice comfy bed. The shower didn't really have any strenght, it was more like a leaking tap. Everything was very clean. They tried their best with nice furniture and everything, but it just doesn't has it. It feels cold and there is no ambiance. The breakfast was great and the staff very... More

We were in this hotel because we participated in the fantasea halong bay tour. The rooms are quit big and very specious, but the ambiance makes the room feel a bit cold. The facilities are good and the staff is nice. Foods were included for us and it tasted fine. Location is good and wifi splendid! I don't know what... More

We have traveled throughout Vietnam and have stayed in many hotels. Most of the hotels have been great but I have been extremely disappointed with this one. On the day that we arrived the woman behind the desk seemed shocked to find so many people in her reception waiting to be shown to our rooms- she wasnt expecting all of... More

We had a big room on 5th floor at the rear of hotel so it was quiet (apart from the odd cockerel!). The room was a bit tatty around the edges and seemed to have a mix of furniture that did not really go together but for a couple of nights it was OK. Easy walk to/from the waterfront and... More

Location was good and price also good. Couldn't fault them on anythin they could change. One strange thing (now that I think about it) the hall ways are echoey even floor to floor... And if someone bangs their door very loud it sounds like a gun shot! (!?!!) ... Not really a fault of the hotel though... Maybe I am... More

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
