Ok, where do I start. Yes this hotel has a great view, especially from the higher floors. Apart from that the rooms are dreadful. As I write this review I am in the hotel lying on a bed that can only be described as rock hard. I now know what it's like to lay on a mortuary slab. The room... More

We stayed here for 1 night as part of a Ha Long Bay tour. It was off season so it was very quiet. Room was old and in disrepair in many ways especially the ensuite. We had an evening meal and breakfast. I won't go into all the details but my best review summary here is:- The food was really... More

We stayed in this hotel 4 times 2 years ago and last month. Hotel staff were very polite and friendly. Although our room was large,the amenities of room were too old. The Television hardly worked. The hotel's restaurant has a great sea view if you take a seat outside.

Nice enough hotel for average price. Power was out on the whole area when we arrived, and were told there would be no internet, tv or hot water for about three hours - however thank god the lifts worked (we were on the 6th floor) and there was plenty of hot water for showers. Nice spacious room with a great... More

The room was large and reasonably clean, although fittings were a bit outdated. The bed mattress was old and a bit hard (but that was the usual standard in old asian hotels). The aircon and the tv set did not work when we arrived but were promptly fixed upon our complaint. The staff were very helpful. The view of the... More

At $45 in low season, we expected a lot both from the staff and the room. Sadly this was not to be. The wifi in the room only worked (on one bar) if you stood right by the front door. The bed was so hard and uncomfortable, the shower curtain in the bathroom was mouldy and the toilet took half... More

Staying in this hotel last July and It was terrible memories. The first time I stayed there since 5 years ago when it was one of the best choices for tourist. Coming back Cat Ba during summer (at the weekend), stuck with too many tourists (Local and Chinese), all hotels were out of room or informed unbelievable cost (50 -... More

I found Cat Ba all round a bit disappointing. Possibly we were out of season and so it was a bit quiet, it defintely had the feel of somewhere that livens up at the right time of year, judging by the seedy cocktail names and western food on offer. We also found choosing a hotel pretty difficult as no where... More

We stayed here as part of an organised tour from Hanoi to Ha Long Bay and Lan Ha Bay. The hotel is on the sea front and is easy walking distance to the beaches and the busy part of town. However, it is one of the monstrosities of the bay and once inside, we found that the hotel reception is... More

Excellent location, with a fantastic view over the bay. Easy to walk to many bars and restaurants on the strip. Breakfast was sufficient and the service was quick and efficient. The rooms are clean and everything worked (and nothing flooded) Check in and check out was smooth.
