We are a family of four, and we stayed four nights at this hotel. The room was small for that many people, but it was clean and pretty and with a large wardrobe for stashing our clothes. The staff were kind and friendly. On the Cat Ba strip, and for $12 a night, it's difficult to imagine doing better.

Positives: Good location, Huge 40m square triple room for me and my fellow travelers with 3 double beds. Cheap beer available for purchase at reception. Outstanding view on the 3rd floor of Halong Bay. Price was a low season bargain at 20 dollars per night but this is less that the internet offers so it might be better to just... More

We did not stay at the Ngoc Hoa hotel, but we did book our Ha Long Bay day trip through them (option #3 on the yellow paper). After doing some research we discovered that this hotel arranged the tours and then all the other hotels in the Cat Ba area booked the Ngoc Hoa's tour but then charged a few... More

We paid $9 for a fan room at Ngoc Hoa. I think it was $12 for air. We opened the windows and turned on the wall fans which drowned out the street noise all night and let in the cool sea breezes. Fewer horns were honking in Cat Ba than in Hanoi so this worked just fine. Room 401 had... More

Service style dominant nothing, I've been here 3 nights, but they do not change the sheets or clean the room to us, the owners of hotel all way want we had to buy tour from him.... More

On arrival at Cat Ba we were greeted by a swarm of hoteliers offering us rooms for $6 a night, we checked out a few, including the duc tuan which is highly rated on trip advisor, and found them mainly to be a bit grim. This one however is quite newly renovated and clean, with a lift, which is quite... More

During checkout there was some confusion about the number of nights we slept there (2 nights and the lady was constantly saying 3, I guess counting the days and not the nights). Then she couldn`t find our pasports any more. When she maid the check, she counted a different amount of how much she needed to give us back (only... More

I first passed by the Ngoc Hoa restaurant at 10:30 pm, at closing time. It was my first night in cat Ba, and the woman was nice enough to stay open so I could eat some food and have a beer. Since then I have come back 5 or 6 times, to meet with friends who are staying at the... More
