Another reviewer called it soulless - amen to that! Another said it's only 10 years old but seems much older - much, much older. First it was freezing in the room and the ac/heater made only a little difference. Next the light in the room did not work at all - I relied on the light in the bathroom and... More

Cat Ba is my favourite place for weekend vacation. I stayed at Holiday View hotel with my girlfriend. We chose a room with sea view that is very huge but the service so poor. As for facilities, they need to do renovation as soon as possible.

We didn't expect to stay here but there was a change in plans from our tour guide and we were booked into this hotel for a night as part of our halong bay trip. We found the rooms to be clean and spacious. I would agree with other reviewers about the poor quality bathroom fixtures but it was clean. The... More

This hotel is only 10 years old but looks and feels a lot older. The appliance list in the room was joke, as who in there right mind would want to buy anything. The electric kettle blew up because of the frayed cord, the air conditioner worked intermittently throughout the night and there was no screen or curtain on the... More

Heater, Hair Dryer, Kettle, TV and hot water didn't work. Beds were rock hard, food was bland, only positive note is the friendly staff. We couldn't get Wifi in our room, we had to stand in the hallway for it to work. Hotel felt old and poorly maintained, i don't recommend.

We were on the 10th floor and the view was superb and the room spacious. That was probably about it for positives. Thankfully we only stayed one night and left very early the next morning before breakfast started so I cannot comment on the food, as the advertised restaurant for dinner or lunch was non existent. The bed was, as... More

We stayed in room 1210 from 27 to 29. Our room has good view but we have a lot problems: The safety box and fan don't work, a lot of rubbishes under bed. The light in bathroom was broken. Hotel provides buffet breakfast but not much choice. In the peak season (Summer), hotel lobby is always dirty. We order lunch... More

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.
