We stayed at the Vien dong hotel for a total of three night, great price ($10 per night for 2 of us), room was clean. Bathrooms a bit dated and hot water ran out quickly but at that price we could live with it. The hotel booked us a 2 day, 1 night boat tour, and we joined the boat... More

We (3 couples) spent there 2 nights. I really loved the location - we all lived in spacious rooms overlooking the harbour. Everything was quite plain but clean, and the manager was very friendly and helpful. And what's great - they have an elevator (good news for those living on the last floor :)

We stayed at Vien Dong for 3 nights in November 2012. As we had not booked ahead, we stayed the first night in a room overlooking the side street and asked to be moved to a room overlooking the harbour for the next two nights where there was a balcony and a great view. We paid $10 per night (this... More

We came to Cat Ba as backpackers therefore not looking for a 5 star resort. For $10 (off season) a night this place was great. We had a room overlooking the harbour with a/c and tv. Bathroom is a simple wet room but all works well. We didn't eat here so can't comment on the food. As far as tours... More

I stayed here with 5 friends in April 2012 whilst backpacking through south east Asia. Overall, we were very impressed with the hotel. We paid $15 per night for a room for 2, which was very reasonable. The rooms are spacious, clean and all have a good TV, air conditioning and a fan. The bathrooms are basically a wet room... More

I booked a great boat tour through Hạ Long Bay in 2008 with this hotel. This time around, I paid $20 more for less time, but I agreed to it and I am fine with that. What I am not fine with is the fact that the crew of the boat that took us around rifled through our bags and... More

Stayed here for two nights in November for $10. Vien Dong is located across from the dock and has a great view. Rooms were clean and pretty big (we had a double bed and a single bed in our room). Complementary toothbrushes in the bathroom. The Family that owns it were very nice and happy to give us options on... More

We had reservations for two nights at this hotel ( $20/night ). Upon arrival we were happy that I have chosen to use a very beautiful place. The hotel is located in the central tourist area, but could not believe around the hotel smell odor very annoying to drain water, all kinds of other garbage from the focus on this... More
