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.

I would stay here... More

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. Hotel is a little bit away from the strip which is really good on weekends. Room was spacious and clean. Staff was nice and spoke good English. We only ate... More

Room was spacious and clean. Good breakfast w eggs, bread, pancake, and fruit, coffee. But special kudos to the friendly and gracious staff. Now called the CatBa Palace. 5 min walk from where the bus lets you off, up a hill.

We liked the hotel, stayed there only for one night though. Hotel staff was kind and helpful. We rented a motorbike there for cheap and the guy from the reception taught us driving it. And it was very nice of him, cause we never drove motorbikes before. We had a great trip through the island. During it we saw another... More

We stayed here initially for one night as part of the fantasea 3 day 2 night trip. However we got caught in typhoon Haiyan so we had to stay one more night. We were given another nights accommodation for free and had nothing to complain about! The rooms were amazing, huge with cable tv, gorgeous comfy bed, balcony and beautiful... More
